Upon his arrival, the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army as well as personnel from the Nigerian Navy and Nigerian Air Force mounted a guard of honour for him, while the standing troupe of the Lagos State Council for Arts and Culture provided entertainment.


Tinubu is scheduled to join the Muslim faithful for the Eid prayers on Wednesday at the Obalende prayer ground.
