Finally, President-elect now president sworn-in of the most populous country in West Africa Nigeria has moved into the Asso-Rock. He is surrounded by so many guards but who are we kidding? did anyone see the guard in headscarf and glasses? that is the guard we all should watch out for – behind every successful man is a woman, this one is a powerhouse we have to emulate.
His swearing in was basically one of the most smooth transitions in the history of African politics thanks to the charm, personality and level headed gracious nature of his predecessor Goodluck Jonathan. Buhari made a remarkable speech but didn’t forget to show what a well read man he was by quoting Shakespeare as –
Our situation somehow reminds one of a passage in Shakespeare’s Julius Ceasar
There is a tide in the affairs of men which,
taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life,
Is bound in shallows and miseries.
We have an opportunity. Let us take it.
President Federal Republic of NIGERIA
and Commander in-chief-of the Armed forces
