President Elect, Tinubu Leaves Nigeria For Paris To “Rest” After Hectic Elections
Nigeria’s President-Elect, Bola Tinubu, has travelled to Paris in France to take a well-deserved rest following a hectic election campaign season.
According to a statement from his media aide, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s trip to Paris is preparatory to his travel to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan Fasting that begins on Thursday.
Tinubu’s trip to Paris is coming after a long and exhaustive campaign and election season that saw him emerge as the winner of the presidential election slated for May 29, 2023. The statement further revealed that while in Paris, Tinubu would use the opportunity to plan his transition program ahead of his inauguration.
The President-elect is expected back in Nigeria soon, as his trip to Paris is just a brief interlude before his planned journey to Saudi Arabia for the Lesser Hajj and Ramadan fasting.
It is worthy to note that Tinubu’s planned trip to Saudi Arabia is in line with the Islamic tradition of performing the Umrah (Lesser Hajj) during Ramadan.
Tinubu’s decision to travel to Paris to rest before embarking on the Hajj and Ramadan Fasting has been commended by many Nigerians who see it as a wise move.
The presidential election campaign season in Nigeria can be very hectic, and it is essential that elected officials take some time to rest and plan ahead of their inauguration.
In conclusion, Tinubu’s trip to Paris is not only a well-deserved rest but also an opportunity to plan ahead of his inauguration.
Nigerians can look forward to a smooth transition process as Tinubu returns to Nigeria to take up the mantle of leadership.
