Buhari vacates presidential villa for Tinubu
Ahead of the inauguration of the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has vacated his official residence at the Presidential Villa and relocated to the Glass House.
The Glass House has served as a transitional abode for the outgoing president and their spouse during the handover period.
The Glass House has also traditionally played a crucial role in the transition of power, providing a symbolic and practical space for the outgoing president and their spouse.
The relocation of the President was made known by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, in a video on her Instagram page after showing the incoming First Lady, Senator Remi Tinubu around the State House.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration had expressed its commitment to ensuring a smooth transition process and peaceful handover of power on Monday, May 29, to Tinubu.
A Presidential Transition Council was set up to this effect, with the Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, the Chairman.
Buhari spent his constitutionally-expected two-term of eight years in office and could retire to his hometown of Daura in Katsina in May.
