Known as a political "godfather," Bola Tinubu is going to take charge of the government while Nigeria is reeling under economic distress and insecurity.
EDnews informs via DW that Bola Tinubu is set to be sworn in as the new president of Nigeria on Monday amid pressure to resolve sustained economic and security issues plaguing the country.
The 71-year-old southerner won the elections that were held in February this year with 8.8 million votes ousting the 80-year-old Muhammadu Buhari who is also a member of the All Progressives Congress party (APC).
Sometimes referred to as the political "godfather", Tinubu has been known for exerting power from behind the scenes and using his extensive network to back candidates for office.
However Tinubu only won the elections with 37% of the vote, the lowest share since 1999.
