After taking his oath and partaking in other ceremonies, Buhari failed to deliver any speech to Nigerians.
The oath of office was administered on them by the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad.
His refusal drew wide reactions and condemnation from opposition politicians.
Naija News learnt that the president failed to deliver any speech because of the forthcoming Democracy Day.
A presidency source told Daily Trust that Buhari’s inaugural speech would be delivered on June 12 during the Democracy Day.
Recall that the Federal Government had shifted major events for the president’s inauguration to June 12.
The source who spoke anonymously said the president’s inaugural speech was not meant for the swearing in.
