President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday congratulated President Jacob Zuma and his party, the African National Congress (ANC) on their victory in the South African general elections.

In a statement by the Presidential Spokesperson, Dr Reuben Abati, Jonathan said that the victory was an affirmation of the enduring popularity of President Zuma and the party of Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo and other great heroes of the anti-apartheid movement.

ANC won with over 60 percent of the votes cast in the election to the South African Parliament and provincial legislatures.

Jonathan also said that the victory was a reaffirmation of the confidence of the majority of the people of South Africa in the ability of the ANC Government to progressively achieve more inclusive national economic development and prosperity.

The president said he believed that the elections and the ANC’s fifth consecutive victory at national polls were a well-deserved tribute to the Madiba (Mandela).

He said that Nelson Mandela’s contributions to the emergence of a non-racist and truly democratic South Africa remained legendary.

Abati said that the president looked forward to continue working with President Zuma and his ANC Government.

“This is with a view to further strengthen the cordial and mutually-beneficial relations between Nigeria and South Africa, especially in the area of bilateral trade and investments,” he said.

The president also noted that under the continued leadership of the ANC, Nigeria and South Africa would keep on working together with others for the attainment of greater peace, political stability, economic development and progress in all parts of the African continent.
