Unlike previous inaugurations, the president did not give a speech.
This will however be done on June 12, which has been re-designated as Democracy Day in honour of the June 12, 1993 presidential election won by the late philanthropist, Bashorun MKO Abiola which was later annulled by the then military president, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd.)
