President-elect Bola Tinubu has received the GCFR, Nigeria’s highest national honor, from President Muhammadu Buhari. Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima was also given the GCON, the second-highest national honor.

At the moment, the award ceremony is taking place at the banquet hall of the State House Conference Center in Abuja.

At the event, Mr. Buhari also presented the new president with the transitional documents and the service baton.

Mr. Tinubu spoke quickly after receiving the transitional documents and praised the departing president, whom he refers to as “Mr. Democrat.”

Based on the information given by Boss Mustafa, the chairman of the transition team, the president-elect claimed that the “documents clearly enumerated the efforts of the past eight years.”

No one can dispute his contributions to the advancement of Nigeria, he said Mr. Buhari.

The president-elect also indicated how happy he was to be in charge, stating, “I am full of pride to say that this moment is our moment.”

Mr. Tinubu reaffirmed his support for democracy and declared that nothing would stop the nation from upholding it.

Although we have confidence in our ability to meet the obstacles we face, our paths won’t always be easy, he continued.

Additionally, Mr. Tinubu made use of the occasion to express his gratitude to Mr. Buhari for rectifying the wrong of the annulment of the presidential vote on June 12, 1993, as well as for recognizing and honoring Moshood Abiola, the widely recognized victor of the election.

“Now that you’ve contributed, I’ll have a significant obligation to fulfill. I am aware of the honor bestowed upon me today and the size of the challenge that lies ahead.You should prepare for knocks on your door wherever you go, including Daura and Niger.

I won’t let you down, Mr. Tinubu promised.
On Monday, May 29, Mr. Tinubu will take the oath of office as president of Nigeria.

Some of his rivals, including Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, are still contesting his election in court.
