The All Progressive Congress (APC) President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is expected back in Nigeria today ahead of the May 29 inauguration
Mr Bayo Onanuga, the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council’s Director of Media and Publicity, confirmed and revealed this on Monday via a post on his Twitter handle that the President-elect has been on vacation in France.
According to reports, Tinubu and the incoming first lady, Sen Oluremi Tinubu, are billed to land at the presidential wing of the Abuja Airport around 2pm and they will be escorted from the airport by a carnival-like motorcade to the Defence House.
The president-elect had jetted out of Nigeria to France on March 21.
A statement by media aide, Tunde Rahman, had in March noted that Tinubu travelled to France to rest and plan his transition programme after a very exhaustive campaign and election season.
“The president-elect had left the country through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja. The president-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan fasting,” Rahman said.
