President Muhammadu Buhari has said he’s ready to hand over to the president elect Senator Bola Tinubu when he relinquishes power on May 29.

The Nigerian leader said the May 29 inauguration is important and would not be changed by any circumstance.

This was revealed in a statement released by a presidential media aide, Garba Shehu on Friday April 21.

The president reiterated his confidence in the capacity of the people to preserve democracy in the country.

“Nigerians appreciate the stability of democracy. The outcome of the elections, in which more than ten governors failed to make it to the senate sent a clear message that ordinary Nigerians know the power of their votes and how to use it.

“Nigerians cherish democracy. They have shown their love for it and will defend it against real or perceived threats. They will continue to vote one way or the other depending on their preferences,” he stated.

The Nigerian president said he would not stay close to the capital city after the handing over, so that he can take some rest and not distract the new president.

“I thank God for what He has done for me personally and for what He has enabled us to achieve.

“I am looking forward to returning to my town, to be as far away as I can from Abuja so that the in-coming President will have the time and the space to take decisions without my distracting him,” he said.
