With effect from May 29, 2015, the
President-elect, Muhammadu
Buhari, will drop the title “general”
from his name.
The retired Army general, has
chosen to be addressed as
President, Commander-in-Chief of
the Armed Forces Federal Republic
of Nigeria.
This was contained in a statement
signed by the Director of Media and
Publicity of the All Progressives
Congress Presidential Council,
Mallam Garba Shehu, in Abuja, on
Sunday.
The statement read, “As from May
29, 2015, the President-elect and
Vice President- elect are to be
respectively known and addressed
as Muhammadu Buhari, President,
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed
Forces Federal Republic of Nigeria
and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, Vice
President, Federal Republic of
Nigeria.”
The media team also unveiled the
official portraits of the incoming
President and Vice President.
Buhari is the second retired army
general to drop general from their
names on assumption of office as
President.
The first was General Olusegun
Obasanjo who exchanged the title
with Chief, on assumption of office
as civilian President in 1999.
Former Vice President Atiku
Abubakar also opted to drop
“Alhaji” from his name during his
time as Nigeria’s Vice President.
