President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu was sworn into office on Monday despite ongoing legal challenge to election results by his political opponents.
Bola Tinubu emerged victorious during the elections with 37% votes. The hashtag #Tinubunotmypresident became popular on social media as his inauguration was in progress.
The ceremony was held surrounded by tight security at the 5000-capacity Eagle square venue in Abuja.
