President elect, Bola Tinubu moves to Defence House ahead of May 29 inauguration
The president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has moved into the Defense House in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja ahead of his inauguration as Nigeria’s president on May 29th, 2023.
Tinubu and the vice president-elect Kashim Shetttima are expected to stay at the Defense House where they will move into the Presidential Villa after swearing in.
The Defense House is the official residence reserved for Nigeria’s President-Elects since the country returned to democratic rule in 1999.
Ahead of the May 29 handover, Tinubu returned to Nigeria on Monday to a rapturous reception by hundreds of his supporters and well-wishers across the country.
The president-elect restated that his promise to deliver a nation of renewed hope for all Nigerians remains in motion as he is ready for the task ahead.
“I am extremely excited to be back home and deeply humbled by the warm welcome I received on my return to Abuja today,” Tinubu said.
“Thank you all for your love and support. Our promise to deliver a nation of renewed hope for all Nigerians remains in motion.
“I’m happy to be back. I have rested, I’m refreshed and I’m ready for the task ahead. Forget about what the rumor mill may have told you. I’m strong, very strong.”
