On Monday, Buhari will attend the inauguration of Chad’s Mahamat Idriss Deby



On Monday, President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to fly out of Abuja to attend Mahamat Idriss Deby’s investiture ceremony in Chad.
As far as Akahi News is aware, Deby, who will take over for his deceased father, will be sworn in as President of the Transitional Team for a period of two years.
Garba Shehu, President Buhari’s spokesperson, stated in advance of the inauguration, which is scheduled to take place in N’Djamena, the African nation’s capital, that the event will further accentuate negotiations for a peaceful return to the democratic process.
However, it is anticipated that Buhari will immediately return to the nation following the ceremony.
Keep in mind that former President Deby was shot while fighting rebels in the north in April 2021, resulting in his death from gunshot wounds.
When the incident occurred, the former military officer had just won a sixth term following the announcement of the provisional election results.
On Sunday, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) responded to the police attack in Ebonyi state on supporters of Peter Obi, a candidate for the presidency of the Labour Party (LP).
According to Akahi News, during a peaceful rally in September, supporters of the LP flag bearer were subjected to tear gas by police.
The assault allegedly took place in response to a directive from Dave Umahi, the state governor.
The state government, on the other hand, denied issuing the order.In response to the attack, SERAP’s deputy director, Kolawole Oluwadare, issued a statement on Sunday urging President Buhari and state governors to always support freedom of expression, assembly, and equal participation in campaigns.
The organization advised Buhari to publicly instruct the police to safeguard the political participation rights of all Nigerians.
Before the elections in 2023, the group promised to keep an eye on how authorities protect fundamental rights.
According to Oluwadare, citizens would be able to effectively contribute to the country’s democracy if the rights of all citizens to speak and gather were respected.
