To celebrate the inauguration of the nation’s 16th elected President, the Federal Government of Nigeria last week proclaimed Monday, May 29, 2023 as a holiday for all employees. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the country’s most populous black president, will take the oath of office.
Similarly, Kashim Shettima, a former governor of Borno State, will take the oath of office to become the Federal Republic of Nigeria’s sixteenth vice president.
At the ongoing inauguration of the new administration at Eagles Square, Abuja, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Olukayode Ariwoola, is anticipated to administer the oath of office.
The President of the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire, Alassane Ouattara, the Prime Minister of Gabon, Billy By-Nze, the Presidents of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, and Rwanda, Paul Kagame, are all expected to attend the historic occasion.
The Independent National Electoral Commission named Tinubu the winner of the presidential election on February 25 over Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi. His win was a crucial turning point in the political climate of the nation.
Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, the candidates for the Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party, respectively, are contesting the nation’s commercial city, Lagos, former governor’s election victory at the Presidential Election Petition Court.
A new Nigeria has officially begun today. A New Nigeria that could be the difference between success and failure. The new government is expected by Nigerians to bring about the greatness that has long eluded them.
