President Buhari To Be Inaugurated On May 29th, Not June 12th- Presidency Says

The Presidency has clarified that the inauguration of President Buhari for a second term will hold on May 29th and not June 12th as is being speculated.

There have been reports that the inauguration will hold on June 12th which the Federal government last year declared as Democracy day.

However in an interview with Punch, Garba Shehu, said there is no truth to the report as President Buhari will be inaugurated for his second term on Wednesday, May 29th.

The presidential aide said ;

“There is no truth in that report. As a matter of fact, we will soon issue a statement on it to clear the air. The President was inaugurated for his first term in office on May 29, 2015. He ceases to be President on May 29, 2019, if he is not inaugurated for his second term on that day. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no plan to shift the President’s inauguration to June 12. The inauguration will hold on May 29. Those claiming that the inauguration will be shifted to June 12 are only trying to cause confusion in the polity. It is not true.”
