Tinubu’s Inauguration: Anticipation and Challenges as Nigeria’s New President Assumes Office

…By Lola Smith for TDPel Media. The inauguration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as Nigeria’s 16th president marks a significant event in Africa’s largest democracy.


Tinubu, a seasoned politician and former governor of Lagos, won the February elections, promising to address the country’s economic and security challenges.

However, his victory is being challenged in court by his closest rivals, who claim election result manipulation.

Outgoing president Muhammadu Buhari, on the other hand, endorses the credibility and transparency of the election results.

Global Dignitaries Gather

Dignitaries from around the world, including a US delegation, have arrived in Nigeria for the inauguration, highlighting the event’s international significance.

Among the esteemed guests is South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa, reflecting the event’s importance on the African continent.

Peter Obi’s Perspective

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the last general election, believes Tinubu’s inauguration will strengthen the president-elect.


Although he doesn’t plan to attend the ceremony, Obi remains dedicated to his political journey and the fight to secure his mandate.

He urges his followers to stay focused, emphasizing the need for patience in the process of transformation.

Absence at Inaugural Lecture Raises Questions

Notably, Tinubu was absent from his inaugural lecture, leading to public discussions.

Nonetheless, the lecture proceeded with various speakers, including Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta, advocating for an inclusive government.

Challenges Ahead for Tinubu’s Presidency

Tinubu’s presidency carries high expectations alongside numerous challenges.

Nigeria is grappling with issues such as high inflation, record debt levels, and an increase in kidnap-for-ransom cases.

The new administration is expected to take swift action.

Tinubu’s experience as a two-term governor of Lagos, where he revitalized the country’s commercial hub, is anticipated to shape his approach to governance.


However, concerns about his health have emerged since the election, as two overseas trips have raised questions about his well-being.

Looking Ahead to a Promising Future

As Tinubu assumes the leadership of Africa’s largest democracy, the world eagerly awaits his actions.
