May 29, the historic day many Nigerians have been looking forward to. The day the man they have entrusted their future and that of their children with will be sworn in as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
May 29: Beginning of a long, tough journey for Buhari
Without any doubt, President Buhari has earned this day, following two failed attempts at the seat of power, Aso Rock.
The outcome of the March 28 Presidential election has shown that Nigerians are ready to sacrifice for any leader who earns their trust – the result which will see former military head of state Muhammadu Buhari take office as the President today.
However, given the state of the economy and many anomalies that have rendered many sectors and industries epileptic, especially the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation; Buhari must hit the ground running.
Nigerians are impatient and craving better lives and systems, as such, the new president will not be spared at any chance of slacking.
In less than five hours, over 50 world leaders are expected to be seated at the Eagles Square, Abuja, the venue of the inauguration ceremony that will usher in a new government and political dispensation in Nigeria.
Hopefully, the ‘change’ Nigerians have yearned for has come.
