The head of the All Progressives Congress (APC) transition committee, Chief Timipre Sylva, has revealed emerging details on the swearing-in ceremony of the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Sylva, Buhari’s inauguration ceremony would not be ostentatious due to the current dwindling in the country’s economy
Sylva Said: “There are no challenges, we are planning very well and I think we are going to give Nigerians a compact inauguration. We are not going to be flamboyant. We think that this country cannot afford a flamboyant ceremony this time because the economy is not in good shape right now. So we are actually planning to give Nigerians a sanitized and compact event which will be a source of pride to Nigerians.”
“We have not gotten all the confirmations but we have already gotten from some countries. He also dismissed the insinuation that there may be rift between the incoming and the outgoing government.
“There is no problem, it is just politics. What happened is that they were on the wrong side and they lost. We are on the right side and we won. And so, the government will have to continue and just like we were there when they were governing, they also have to be there when we are governing the country”, Sylva added.
While the Chief was not categorical about the figure of Heads of States awaited to grace the event on May 29, Sylva meanwhile said that a number of them would come.
