The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and his family have moved into the Glass House at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, ahead of the inauguration of the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
This was disclosed by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, via a video shared on her official Instagram page after taking the incoming First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu around the State House.
The Glass House, according to the First Lady, has acted as a transitory residence for the outgoing president and their spouse throughout the transition phase.
She stated, “I’m advising that the Glass House should maintain its tradition of being a transition for the outgoing president. As I am talking to you now, I am residing here with my husband. Only two of us here, I think it should remain so as a norm of the institution and of the house.”
In May 2015, Goodluck Jonathan, who preceded Buhari, relocated to the Glass House in the Aso Presidential Villa to allow for renovation before Buhari’s inauguration.
