As Nigeria eagerly awaits the inauguration of President-elect Bola Tinubu, preparations are reportedly in full swing for the smooth transition of power.
The incoming President Muhammadu Buhari has temporarily moved into the Glass House at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, according to the Nigerian news agency.
The outgoing First Lady, Senator Remi Tinubu, was given a tour of the State House by the current First Lady, Aisha Buhari, according to a video she uploaded on her Instagram page.
Aisha Buhari gave Senator Tinubu a tour of the house and explained in great detail the significance and background of each room.
According to Aisha Buhari, the mansion should continue its custom of solely hosting the current president and their spouse throughout the transition phase.
“I’m advising that the Glass House should continue to be a transitional place for the outgoing president,” she said. I am currently residing here with my hubby while we speak to you. There are just two of us here, and I believe that should continue to be the standard for the organization and the home.
Concerning the Glass House
For many years, the renowned Glass House, which served as the incoming President and their spouse’s temporary residence during the transition period, was a key component of the transfer of power.
Prior to Buhari’s inauguration, Goodluck Jonathan, who served as president before him, moved to the Glass House in the Aso Presidential Villa in May 2015.
Jonathan and his wife Patience relocated their personal possessions to their home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State, once the results of that year’s presidential election were made public.
Like his predecessors, Tinubu is anticipated to offer suggestions for the furnishings and paint hues that would adorn his official residence and office and be tailored to his preferences. On some specific portions of the house, however, some minor repairs will also be made, and the entire house will be cleaned and painted white.
