After completing a productive working visit to Europe, President-elect Bola Tinubu has arrived back in the nation’s capital, Abuja, News About Nigeria reports.
Tinubu embarked on this trip with the primary objective of engaging with investors and key allies, aiming to promote investment opportunities in Nigeria and emphasize his administration’s commitment to creating a business-friendly environment through favorable policies and regulations.
This marks Tinubu’s second international trip since being declared the president-elect on March 1.
Previously, he returned from a four-week vacation in France on April 24.
However, his victory is currently being challenged at the presidential election petition tribunal, which began hearing the case on May 8.
As the inauguration of Nigeria’s 16th President draws near, plans are underway to ensure a grand event.
Invitations have been extended to approximately 65 world leaders, including heads of state, who are expected to grace the occasion on May 29.
Distinguished guests such as past presidents, diplomats, heads of international organizations, prominent Nigerians, and representatives from foreign governments and agencies will also be in attendance.
The inauguration activities will commence on Thursday, beginning with the investiture of Bola Tinubu as the Grand Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic.
Additionally, the Vice-President-elect, Kashim Shettima, will be honored as the Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger.
The ongoing challenge to Tinubu’s victory at the presidential election petition tribunal underscores the importance of upholding democratic processes and ensuring transparency in electoral outcomes.
The tribunal hearings will facilitate a thorough examination of the election process, offering an opportunity to address the grievances presented by Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) and Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
