Exactly 35 days to his inauguration on May 29, Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Tinubu, will arrive in Nigeria on Monday after a one-month rest in France.
Tinubu left the country for France on Tuesday, March 21 to rest and plan the transition programme ahead of his inauguration on May 29.
One of his loyalists informed our correspondent on Saturday that the president-elect would arrive in the country on Monday evening, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
The source said: “Asiwaju is coming back on Monday. He will arrive Monday evening.”
His Media Office had in a statement in March, explained that he travelled to France to rest and plan his transition programme after a very exhaustive campaign and election season.
The president-elect had left the country through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja. According to the statement, the president-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan Fasting.
The statement also added that while away, the president-elect would also use the opportunity to plan his transition programme.
“He has directed all the senior aides and campaign staff to also go and observe a short rest. He is expected back in the country soon. We enjoin the media to stop publishing rumours and unsubstantiated claims and to always seek clarifications from our office,” his media office reportedly said.
On his return to the country, the president-elect is expected to hit the ground running to address certain issues that would ensure effective take-off of his government on inauguration on May 29.
