Reactions as Tinubu, Shettima take oath of office



Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima on Monday have been sworn in as president and vice president of Nigeria, respectively.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Olukayode Ariwoola, administered the oath of office.

Typically after the swearing-in of a president, the president-elect is presented with four ‘instruments of power.’

The Nigerian Constitution, the Nigerian flag as Sovereign, the Armed Forces flag as Commander in Chief, and the Presidential sash as Head of State.

Since the 2023 presidential election is marred with claims of electoral fraud, the swearing-in of Tinubu is expected to generate mixed reactions from netizens.
