President John Mahama was in attendance as President-elect of Nigeria , Muhammadu Buhari was sworn into office today May 29 2015 at Abuja-Nigeria . Buhari, a former Nigerian army general who first won power three decades ago in a military coup, beat incumbent and main rival President Goodluck Jonathan in a historic presidential election in Africa’s biggest economy.
The 72-year-old stretched Mr Jonathan by about 2 million votes, testament to the faith Nigerians have put in him as a born-again democrat intent on cleaning up Nigeria’s perceived corrupt politics.
