Tinubu, Shettima Move Into Defence House

President-elect Bola Tinubu and vice-president-elect Kashim Shettima have moved into the Defence House in Abuja ahead of their inauguration in May.

Director media and publicity of the defunct Tinubu/Shettima campaign, Bayo Onanuga on Wednesday, tweeted that Tinubu and Shettima have moved to the Defence House.

The former governor of Lagos polled 8,794,726 votes to defeat Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who had 6,984,520 votes, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), who secured 6,101,533 votes to come third.

The Defence House – the conventional official residence of a president-elect and the deputy is located in the Maitama district of Abuja will serve as the residence until Tinubu and Shetima take the oath of office on May 29 after which they will move to the State House.

Tinubu is expected to receive briefings and hold key meetings at the residence.

The president-elect was accompanied to the house by Senate President Ahmad Lawan, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Abdullahi Adamu and Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila, among others.

The residence was home to President Muhammadu Buhari after he won the presidential election in 2015.
