A tweet by the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council on Thursday read: “The President-elect will be moving into Defence House, in Maitama, FCT, where he will spend the next couple of months, and from where he will move into the Presidential Villa.”
The notice came barely 24 hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission declared him ( Bola Ahmed Tinubu) as the winner of the February 25 presidential elections.
