As exactly 10:51am on Friday May 29, 2015, Muhammadu #Buhari completed his oath of office. The oath which was administered by the Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Mahmud Muhammed commenced at exactly 10:35am.
“I, Muhammadu Buhari, do solemnly swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said at the ceremony at Abuja’s Eagle Square venue.
“That as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I will discharge my duties to the best of my ability and in accordance with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the law.”
The Vice President, Osinbajo was the first to take the oath which was followed immediately by the President, Muhammadu Buhari. The entire Eagle Square erupted in jubilation as soon as the oath was administered.
#President Muhammadu Buhari will be ruling the country for the next four years with his vice-president, Prof. Femi Osinbajo. Prof. Femi Osinbajo, formerly referred to as vice-president-elect will equally be ditching that title, having been confirmed as the number two citizen of the country.
Buhari received the national flag and defence flag from former president Jonathan after the flags were handed to him by Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh.
The swearing in of President Buhari is so significant that it is the first peaceful transfer of power between rival parties in the nation.
The inauguration of Buhari, who won the March 28 presidential election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, brought to an end the 16-year reign of the Peoples Democratic Party on the political landscape of the nation and the five-year Presidency of Goodluck Jonathan, who became President in May, 2010.
