Ex-Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan were absent as President Muhammadu Buhari took his oath of office for his second term.
Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo took their oaths at Eagle Square in Abuja in a low-key ceremony.
Obasanjo and Jonathan had endorsed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubkar, in the general election.
It was, therefore, no surprise to many when both former leaders were absent from the ceremony on Wednesday.
What came as a surprise to many was the presence of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
Saraki and Dogara have had public fallouts with Buhari and Osinbajo in recent times with the latest coming just yesterday when Buhari accused Saraki and Dogara of being unpatriotic and hurting the nation.
The acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Ibrahim Muhammad administered the oath of office on Buhari and Osinbajo, with their wives standing beside them.
