The immediate past President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has departed Eagle Square, Abuja, the venue for the inauguration, for the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, en route to his home town, Daura in Katsina State.

Buhari who in the past days expressed his excitement to return to his hometown, left the venue immediately Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima were respectively sworn in as President and Vice President on Monday.

Before his departure, Buhari formally handed over flags and other insignia of office to the new president.

Buhari on Sunday had dinner in the State House Banquet Hall with Tinubu and other dignitaries who witnessed the transition.
