President Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday, May 25, confer national honours on President-elect Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima, the vice-president-elect. Boss Mustapha, chairman of the presidential transition committee and secretary to the government of the federation who made the announcement on Thursday, May 18, said Tinubu will be conferred with the Grand Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic (GCFR) while Shettima will be honoured with the Grand Commander of the Order of the Niger (GCON). Mustapha who also revealed that there will be an official handover of transition documents to the incoming administration on same day, described the upcoming event as historically significant to the country and the international community, particularly Africa because of the democratic values and lessons in nationhood. He said; This is going to be the most organised and seamless presidential transition in the history of Nigeria, enabled by executive order 14 signed by President Muhammadu Buhari. On May 27, there will be an inaugural lecture by Uhuru Kenyatta, former President of Kenya. Also commenting on protests against the inauguration of Tinubu and Shettima as President and Vice-President respectively, he said: Let me say without any fear of contradiction, there will be an inauguration on 29th of May. We will proceed with the inauguration of President-elect Tinubu and the litigation will continue. Our constitution and electoral act have dealt with that. Our laws are sacrosanct.
