Buhari relishes opportunity to do more

“The new administration will intensify its efforts in security, restructuring the economy and fighting corruption,” Buhari said after the electoral commission declared him the winner.

A message on Buhari’s Twitter feed showed a picture of him waving to supporters and the message “4+4” to mark his second four-year term.

“One good term deserves another,” said one of Buhari’s campaign billboards.

Despite the travails of his first term, it looks like enough voters agreed with that message.
