Tinubu to attend inauguration of newly elected Chad President Déby Thursday

Nigerian President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will depart Abuja for N’Djamena, the capital of Chad, to attend the inauguration of President Mahamat Déby on Thursday.

Tinubu, in a statement by his spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale, said the inauguration follows Déby’s declaration as the winner of the country’s presidential election on May 16 by the Constitutional Council of Chad after Mahamat Déby secured victory with 61% of the vote cast far ahead of his rivals Succès Masra and Albert Pahimi Padacké.

Déby was declared the winner after the Council reviewed and reaffirmed the vote counts.

Meanwhile, in the statement made available to journalists in Abuja, Ngelale said: “President Tinubu will be accompanied on the trip by senior government officials and will return after the ceremony.”
