The Chairman of the Media and Publicity Sub- Committee of the Presidential Inauguration Planning Committee, Chief Edem Duke, on Friday said over 50 presidents and heads of government across the globe will attend the inauguration of President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.

He made the remark while briefing journalists in Abuja on the preparations for the one week programme, which started on Friday with Jumaat prayer at the National Central Mosque, Abuja.
According to him, invitation cards have been dispatched to all the 54 countries in the African continent and other countries of the world.



Duke, who is also the Minister of Culture and Tourism, said: ?As we speak the 54 countries of the continent of Africa have been invited. Many of the heads of government will be coming.

?There has been a huge interest, especially, from head of countries in Europe to attend this inauguration and at the last count I think we must have in excess of about 50 heads of state and delegation expected at this inauguration.?

Stressing that a high security strategy is being put in place for a hitch-free inauguration, the minister said all invitees for the various segments of the inauguration will be subjected to thorough screening.
He said some roads in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) will be blocked on the inauguration day to ensure smooth movement to and from the Eagle Square venue of the inauguration.

He said: ?The security agencies are working in close concert to ensure that there is absolutely no threat to the security of this inauguration.?

?Arrangements are been made to screen all the invitees long before they access the perimeters of the location.?
