Tinubu to stay at defence guest house in Abuja till May 29 – APC Presidential Council

President-elect, Bola Tinubu

The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, will be moving to the Defence Guest House in the Maitama District of Abuja.

According to a tweet by the All Progressive Campaign Council on Thursday, Tinubu will spend the next couple of months in the defense House from where he will move into the Presidential Villa.

“The President-elect will be moving into Defence House, in Maitama, FCT, where he will spend the next couple of months, and from where he will move into the Presidential Villa,” a tweet reads.

The notice came barely 24 hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission declared Tinubu as the winner of the February 25 presidential elections.

From the Defence House, Tinubu will receive briefings and hold key meetings as President-elect.

Speaking with PUNCH, the Spokesperson of the APC PCC, Festus Keyamo, said he could not confirm the actual time the President-elect will move into his new abode, Punch Reports

However, this is not a new development as the current President, Muhammadu Buhari, also lodged at the same location months before his inauguration on May 29, 2015. Afterward, he moved into his official residence at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.

It was earlier reported that Tinubu polled 8,794,726, followed by thePeoples Democratic Party’s Atiku Abubakar, who scored 6,984,520 votes, and Labour Party’s Peter Obi who polled 6,101,533.

Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigerian Peoples Party garnered 1,496,687 votes to emerge fourth.
