President Muhammadu Buhari’s swearing-in promises to be a well-orchestrated one as the Nigerian government and the military have shown Nigerians what to expect on May 29.
In a rehearsal held today at the Eagle Square, Abuja, the military moved to perfect all the needed protocols for the inauguration event.
Following the same order in which the inauguration is expected to follow, the rehearsal began with the arrival of the Vice President, the President, taking of oaths and changing of flags; twenty-one gun salute, among others.
To inspect the venue, The Minister and the SGF were at the Eagle Square.
While speaking with journalists shortly after, Mohammed said, “We are here today with the Chairman of the Presidential Inauguration committee, the Secretary of the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha to inspect the venue and also watch the rehearsal to ensure that everything is perfect before May 29.
“We all witnessed the parade, the lying of the flag; the exchange of new flag and the whole stages and the idea are to ensure that we rectify whatever shortcomings and mistakes before the d-day. This rehearsal has offered the opportunity of determining from where to when of that day because on the day of the inauguration there will be no room to make amends. So this is why we are here today.”
