President Bola Tinubu will on Thursday, May 23, depart Abuja for N’Djamena, the Republic of Chad, to attend the inauguration of President Mahamat Déby.

This is contained in a statement issued by presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale on Wednesday.

The inauguration of President Déby follows his declaration as the winner of the country’s presidential election earlier this month and subsequent affirmation by the Constitutional Court of Chad.

Ngelale said President Tinubu would be accompanied on the trip by senior government officials and would return after the ceremony.

Born 4 April, 1984, Deby is a Chadian politician and military officer who has been the leader of Chad since 2021, first as President of the Transitional Military Council from 2021 to 2022, then as Transitional President from 2022 to 2024, and then as the 7th President since 2024 following his victory in the presidential elections.

He is also the General Secretary of the Patriotic Salvation Movement since 2022. He gained power on 20 April, 2021 when his father and predecessor, Idriss Déby, died in action while commanding troops in the Northern Chad offensive.

He previously served as the second in-command of the military for the Chadian Intervention in Northern Mali (FATIM).
