Tinubu sworn in as Nigerian president, succeeding Buhari | Government News

Tinnub is Nigeria’s fifth president since it restored democracy in 1999.

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

He was sworn in by the country’s chief justice, Olukayode Ariwoola, in a colorful ceremony in the capital Abuja on Monday.

Tinnub, 71, succeeds outgoing Muhammadu Buhari, who is not eligible for re-election 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 troubled economy and widespread insecurity in Africa’s most populous country.
