Jonathan to take Buhari on tour of Aso Rock on May 28
President Goodluck Jonathan is to take president elect, general Muhammadu Buhari on a tour of the Presidential Villa on the 28th of May, 2015, a day before Buhari takes over as president.
President Jonathan had hitherto hinted at such a plan but no date was fixed for it.
The tour symbolically presages the main change of guards the following day, in usually more elaborate ceremony.
The date of the guided tour was disclosed by Governor of Niger state, Babangida Aliyu, while briefing state House correspondents after the council of state meeting.
According to the governor, the council also agreed that there should be a template on handing over and taking over government subsequently.
This process appears more complicated in thi instance because this is the first time there is exchange of power between different parties in Nigeria. It is the first time an incumbent lost power in the country.
Another issue handled by the council is that of cttle grzing. Aliyu said the council also approved for the establishment of grazing reserves in the country in order to check the incessant clash between herdsmen and farmers.
