President Goodluck Jonathan has invited his main challenger and presidential candidate of Congress for Progressive Congress (CPC), General Muhammadu Buhari as well as candidates of other political parties to his presidential inauguration billed for Sunday, May 29 at the Eagle Square, Abuja. The CPC is currently challenging the Jonathan’s election at the election tribunal.

 

The Chairman of the inauguration committee and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mahmud Yayale Ahmed, said the event is also expected to gulp N830million.

Briefing newsmen yesterday on the preparation in his office, the SGF said “The actual cost is 830 million to be specific. Our initial budget was N1.3bn, it was reduced to N830 million. Now, it may reach the figure of N1bn plus or minus but no more. I will want you to follow it up after the event.”

Yayale said that by virtue of the position which Buhari held before in this country and his contributions to the growth of democracy, he will be accorded special reception at the event.

The SGF said all the political parties have also been invited. “All the presidential candidates are going to be invited for the inauguration and this has been the tradition,” he added.

He said that 40 heads of government have been sent invitations to attend the inauguration, adding that so far, the ministry of foreign affairs has confirmed that about 15 of them have confirmed that they will be around.

He stated that in order to forestall the unfortunate incidence that happened during the 50th independence anniversary of Nigeria, the committee is not taken anything for granted, saying: “everybody you know who is related with security in this country is part and parcel of this committee. The security sub-committee is headed by National Security Adviser.

The inauguration committee chairman said there will a presidential dinner with corporate Nigeria, exhibition and unveiling of President’s portrait at the Shehu Musa Yar’adua tomorrow and an inauguration lecture on Thursday. He added that on the same day, the First Lady will hold Banquet for women.

While special Jum’at prayer is expected to be offered on Friday for peace, unity and progress of Nigeria, Yayale said, there will be a special children day, including match past and children’s parliament for less privileged children to be held on the same day.

On May 28 there will be a football match between Kano Pillars and Enyimba Football Club at the National Stadium while a thanks-giving church service will hold on the same day at the National Christian Worship Centre in Abuja and with President Jonathan in attendance.

Yayale said that there will also be Presidential Inauguration Banquet at the Banquet Hall of the Aso Villa as well as Musical/cultural and fireworks display.
