In preparation for President-elect Bola Tinubu’s inauguration on May 29, the State House Management has began remodelling and restoring areas of the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
According to The PUNCH, white and green paints were seen being applied on the concrete perimeter fence that surrounds the President’s office, official house, Council Chamber, press gallery, and other administrative offices.
It was also observed on Thursday the delivery of new furniture to the green room adjoining the Council Chamber.
The administration had put barricades where there had once been motorways and performed a regular upgrade of the card readers months ago.
Under the condition of anonymity, a senior State House source said the upkeep was one of the duties performed by the Presidential Transition Council, which was led by Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
The Federal Government established the 22-member Presidential Transition Council on February 14, 2023, preparatory of the handover to the incoming government.
Cabinet Affairs, General Service Affairs, Economic and Political Affairs, Office of the SGF and State House permanent secretaries, as well as the National Security Adviser, are all members of the committee.
