History was today made as Joe Biden of the Democrat was finally declared the winner of the keenly contested US Election, after crossing 270 Electoral College Votes some hours ago.
Biden beat Donald Trump of the Republican party as announced by major TV networks in an election that has been perceived by some political analysts as the most controversial in recent times.
Reacting to the development, Biden in her words, said, ” I am honoured and humbled by the trust the American People have placed in me and in Vice – president-elect (Kamala) Harris. I will be a president who seeks not to divide but unify, who doesn’t see red and blue states, but the United States”.
Consequently, some Goodwill and congratulatory messages have reportedly started trickling in from Presidents of some Countries and world leaders alike.
With some opening showing their solidarity with Biden and thanking Americans for the conduct of the peaceful election, an example of whom is President Sonia Gandhi of India, including but not limited to President Muhammadu Buhari, President of Nigeria. Following this victory, Joe Biden is set to become the 46th US president.
However, President Donald Trump, the incumbent president has refused to accept defeat, alleging that the election was marred by rigging, in a desperate bid to oust him from office and vowed to reclaim his victory in the court.
Among Trump’s supporters, there is a belief that the election was rigged and therefore not over yet, as they chant and move around streets in America to register their dissatisfaction on the outcome of the result.
Some allege that the Media were truly up against Trump in the way and manner of their coverage of the election, just as few urged President Donald Trump, to, like Good luck Jonathan accept the outcome of the election and move on.
Recall that Trump had approached the Supreme Court, seeking the cancellation of results in some States and stoppage of the election result counting on the ground of alleged rigging.
