Nigerian PresidentBuhari’s inauguration for a second term would be a low-key affair in order to keep costs down, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said.
Nigeria could “ill-afford” to spend a huge amount of money on the 29 May inauguration, when Democracy Day would be celebrated two weeks later on June 12, he added.
“The celebration of the inauguration and the advancement of democracy in the country will now take place on June 12,” Mr Mohammed said.
Mr Buhari, 76, won a second term in elections in February, defeating his main rival Atiku Abubakar by a comfortable margin.
