Nigerian prostitutes are offering three days of free sex in celebration of Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the hotly contested presidential election. The National Association of Nigeria Prostitutes (NANP) had said they would declare three days of free services nationwide if Buhari defeated President Goodluck Jonathan, and the group is keeping that campaign promise.

“As part of our earlier promise, we will be declaring a three-day free sex nationwide. We want all our members to honor this directive,” the NANP said in a text message forwarded to the Daily Post in Nigeria on Wednesday.

The group hopes its generous offer will encourage Buhari and his now-ruling All Progressives Congress party to legalize prostitution and introduce reforms to ensure the health and safety of Nigeria’s sex workers. “We want to use this privilege to beg the president-elect to look into the welfare of this association. We believe his victory will surely better this harmless struggle,” the NANP told the Daily Post.

Buhari, a 72-year-old former military dictator, has not yet responded to NANP’s statement. Aside from prostitution, the president-elect will have a long list of issues to address including the Boko Haram insurgency, government corruption, a sinking economy and hundreds of thousands of displaced Nigerians.

Buhari has pledged to “spare no effort” to defeat the Boko Haram terror group in northeast Nigeria. “We have a tough and urgent job to do,” he said Wednesday in his first formal speech since winning the presidential election.
