Before his swearing in, President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu moved from his private residence in the Asokoro area of Abuja to a temporary official residence at the Defense House in Maitama.
Tinubu will be sworn in as the next president of Nigeria on May 29. He will replace President Muhammadu Buhari, who is serving his second and final term.
Tinubu’s relocation was confirmed by one of his spokesmen, Bayo Onanuga.
The official residence, located in the heart of Abuja, was reported to have recently been renovated to accommodate the country’s next president.
The residence must have state-of-the-art security to accommodate a president-in-waiting as he prepares for his upcoming duties as the nation’s new leader.
As the nation eagerly awaits Tinubu’s inauguration, many Nigerians are hopeful that his administration will bring about positive change and progress, and that his tenure will be characterized by transparency, accountability and good governance.
Meanwhile, the inauguration will take place amid petitions against Tinubu by presidential candidates from five political parties, including Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labor Party.
