President Buhari, family move out of Aso Rock ahead of Tinubu’s inauguration

President Muhammadu Buhari and Aisha, his wife, have moved into the “Glass House”, a transitional home at the presidential villa for outgoing presidents and their spouses.

The glass house is where the President and his wife would stay till when they will exit the state house.

Bola Tinubu, the president-elect, is expected to assume office on May 29.

Though he is meant to have moved into Defence House, a guest house of the presidential villa located in the Maitama district of the federal capital territory (FCT), Tinubu has received most of his visitors and held meetings at his residence in Asokoro.

In a video on her Instagram post on Thursday, the first lady, after conducting Remi Tinubu, the incoming first lady, on a tour of the villa, expressed hope that the transitional home tradition would be maintained.

“I have taken the incoming first lady, senator Remi Tinubu, around. She has seen the main house; we are now at the popular glass house,” Aisha said.

“Glass house is a transitional home for the outgoing president. I’m advising that the Glass House should maintain its tradition of being a transition for the outgoing president.

“As I am talking to you now, I am residing here with my husband. Only two of us here, I think it should remain so as a norm of the institution and of the house.”

Also speaking, wife of the president-elect, who also represents Lagos central in the senate, thanked the first lady for the tour.

“I have gone around, she has magnanimously shown me around the house and graciously explained a lot of things to me which is quite a short time and overwhelming for me to grasp,” she said.

“I believe God will help me to be able to make an impactful contribution to the nation.”
