Inauguration: Eagle Square Wears New Look (Photo)



Eagle Square

Ahead of today’s inauguration of the president-elect, the popular Eagle Square, venue of the event in Abuja is already wearing an impressive new look.

According to reports, the arena located at the central business area of Abuja metropolis yesterday saw that massive decoration of the place was still ongoing.

The VIP stand wore very exquisite look with the decorators still putting finishing touches to it.

There was a platform located some 100 meters away from the stand which appears to be where the rituals of the swearing in and indeed all other official protocols would be observed.

Flags of over 20 different countries of the world also adorned the outer part of the area that faced the National Assembly.


It will be recalled that over 50 different Heads of States and Governments would be witnessing the occasion.

The careful lavishing of the Green-white-green, colour of the Nigerian flag would surely convince any passer-by that a great Nigerian event was in the offing.

Most public buildings such as the Office of the Head of Service and a flank of the Federal Secretariat buildings also had a touch of green-white-green colour. Some broadcast media organizations were also seen setting up their equipment while security presence was high.

A combined team of soldiers, police and Department of State Service, DSS and Civil Defence Corps was visible within and outside the square.

Police patrol vehicles also littered the place just as the adjoining roads to the place had been cordoned off and movements restricted.
