Why Tinubu is yet to move into official residence

The reason for the delay, according to The Punch, could be the ongoing renovation work that began in late April when former President Buhari vacated the residence to move into a temporary residence known as the Glass House.

Legit.ng gathers that maintenance work around the Presidential Villa started on May 6, 2023, a few weeks before Tinubu’s inauguration.

The renovations included repainting worn-out areas with white paint and replacing the furniture in the green room of the Council Chamber, among other things.

A source cited by the newspaper noted that, like his predecessors, Tinubu was expected to have a say in the choice of furniture for his official residence.

“Tinubu has not moved in because maintenance work is still ongoing,” another source was quoted as saying.
