Tinubu and his Vice, Kashim Shettima’s swearing in took place at the Eagles Square in Abuja.
 
Following the event a lot of Nigerians and foreigners have been congratulating Tinubu for achieving his life-long dream of becoming a president.
 
Obi and Atiku refused to congratulate Tinubu probably because of their pending suits at the Presidential election petition tribunal.
 
Both candidates are claiming they won the election.
 
Meanwhile, Obi had said he won’t attend the inauguration because he was not invited.
 
A social media user, @delanoi wrote: “This is bad for Nigeria’s democracy. Obi and Atiku should have congratulated Tinubu over his swearing-in. It does not stop the tribunal.”
