Call me Muhammadu Buhari


Perhaps in line with democratic tenets and to fully integrate into the civilian culture, the President-elect Muhammadu Buhari has said he wants to drop the military title of ‘major general’ when addressing once he assumes office on May 29, 2015. He is probably following in the tradition set by the former president Olusegun Obasanjo who on assumption of office in 1999 dropped the title of general and was addressed as chief instead.

According to the director of media and publicity of the APC Presidential campaign organisation, Garba shehu, ‘as from May 29, 2015 the President-elect and the Vice President-elect are to be respectively known and addressed as Muhammadu Buhari, President, commander in chief of the Armed forces of the federal Republic of Nigeria and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, Vice President Federal Republic of Nigeria.
