At exactly 10:45 A.M. Friday, May 29, Muhammadu Buhari mounted the podium to take his oath of office and that of allegiance, effectively becoming President of Nigeria, Africa’s largest democracy.
That moment also ended the reign of Goodluck Jonathan as leader of the most populous black nation on earth.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was the first to be sworn in a ceremony conducted by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, assisted by the Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court.
Shortly after Mr. Buhari was sworn in, the outgoing president congratulated him and presented to him copies of the Nigerian Constitution, and the National and Armed Forces Flag.
PSquare and Kwam 1 performed at the ceremony.
