Tinubu sworn in as Nigeria’s president, succeeds Buhari | Government News



Tinubu is Nigeria’s fifth president since the return of democracy in 1999.

Bola Tinubu, the former Lagos governor who is credited with helping the city-state increase its revenue base, has been sworn in as Nigeria’s new president.

He was sworn in by Olukayode Ariwoola, chief justice of the country, in a colourful ceremony on Monday in Abuja, the capital.

Tinubu, 71, succeeds outgoing Muhammadu Buhari, who was ineligible to run for another term after two four-year terms that began in 2015.

The new president, the fifth since the return of democracy in 1999, will have to tackle a struggling economy and widespread insecurity in Africa’s most populous country.
