Bola Ahmed Tinubu Sworn-in as 16th President of Nigeria
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been sworn in as the 16th democratically elected President of Nigeria.
Tinubu was sworn in by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Kayode Ariowola.
Tinubu, a former Lagos State Governor, takes over from former President, Muhammadu Buhari.
The inauguration ceremony took place at the Eagle Square in Abuja, amidst heightened anticipation and a gathering of dignitaries, political leaders, and citizens from across the country.
Tinubu, a seasoned politician and former governor of Lagos State, was declared winner of the country’s February 25 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
His inauguration is expected to herald a new era for Nigeria, with hopes of transformative leadership and economic growth.
As Tinubu took the oath of office, pledging to faithfully execute the duties of his position and uphold the Constitution, the atmosphere at the Eagle Square was charged with excitement and optimism.
He’s expected to deliver his inaugural speech after taking his oath of office.
Tinubu’s Vice, Kashim Shettima, had earlier taken his oath of office.
After a grueling electioneering process that spanned months, Nigeria now has a new President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces who will steer the ship of the country for the next four years.
