DAILY NIGERIAN reports that President Ndayishimiye was inaugurated earlier on Thursday in Gitega, the country’s political capital.

A statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the President also felicitated with the government and people of Burundi on the peaceful transition to a democratically elected government after the sudden death of President Pierre Nkurunziza.

The statement read: “With a resounding victory at the polls, the Nigerian leader believes that President Ndayishimiye, who had served as Secretary-General of the ruling CNDD-FDD party and played an active role in guiding the country on the path of peace and development, has what it takes to consolidate democracy in the East African country.
