The federal government has released the programmes lined up to usher in the new administration of Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima, as President and Vice-President respectively.

During a press briefing on Thursday, Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation and the presidential transition council chairman, said the transition program, tagged “NIGERIA: Better together”,  will feature 13 events spread across eight days. 

“I am delighted to inform you that May 29, 2023, will mark the 7th consecutive democratic transition of power in Nigeria and on that day, we shall all be ushering in the 16th President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Mustapha said. 

“Gentlemen of the press, let me once again assure Nigerians and indeed the global community of President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to the seamless transfer of power to President-Elect, His Excellency, Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the 16th President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

 “In a demonstration of this commitment, the president has directed all relevant government institutions to cooperate with and support the transition process through engagement with the president-elect’s team.”
