 Tinubu sworn in as Nigeria’s president — can he deliver?

Olukayade Ariwoola, the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), has sworn in Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima as the president and vice-president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The pair were sworn in at the Eagle Square in the federal capital territory (FCT) on Monday.

CrispNG had reported how Tinubu won the February 25 presidential election with a total of 8,794,726 votes.

He defeated Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) who polled 6,984,520 and 6,101,533 votes respectively.

But the election, considered to be Nigeria’s most competitive presidential poll since 1999, has been heavily criticised over alleged irregularities.

The PDP and the LP, among other opposition parties, have challenged the outcome of the election in court, citing irregularities in the process.

CrispNG had earlier sampled the opinion of Nigerians and their expectations for the new government.
