Muhammad Buhari, a retired General and former military Chief of State, will be inaugurated as President of Nigeria on May 29, 2015.

Mrs. Wina will represent President Edgar Lungu at the inauguration ceremony which will be held at the Eagles Square in the capital Abuja.

Zambia’s Acting High Commissioner to Nigeria Maynard Misapa confirmed to ZANIS that Mrs. Wina will be among several heads of state and government from other countries who will attend the inauguration of General Buhari as new President of Nigeria.
