The Military High Command in Nigeria has assured that there is no cause for alarm over the May 29 official inauguration of the new administration of the President -elect, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Director, Defence Media Operations, Maj-Gen Musa Danmadami, who gave the assurance on Thursday during the bi-weekly briefing of Defence Correspondents, said the Armed Forces and other security agencies were fully prepared to ensure a hitch-free exercise.

Gen. Danmadami declared emphatically that Nigerians should not entertain any fear that the May 29 transition would be truncated as the Military, in collaboration with the police and other security agencies, were working round the clock to deal decisively with any potential threat to the inauguration.

He explained that the electioneering had come and gone and the winner had been declared hence the inauguration would hold as planned.

According to him, “Elections have come and gone. For the Presidential election, a winner has been announced. There is a Transition Committee in place comprising members of the security agencies, Ministries and Agencies of government to make sure the event is held successfully and without a glitch.

“We don’t see reasons why there should be a problem during the exercise.

“The inauguration will come and go and nothing will happen. We are not going to relent in ensuring there is peace and stability across the length and breadth of the country”, he said.
