President and Governors Inauguration Ceremonies   

 Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan was sworn in for his first full elected term at the helm of Africa's most populous nation on Sunday faced with the challenge of driving reform and trying to heal regional rifts. Heads of state from across Africa, foreign dignitaries, religious leaders and traditional rulers gathered in Eagle Square in the centre of Abuja for the ceremony and a military parade to mark the start of his four-year term. "Together we will unite our nation, improve the living standards of all our people, whether in the north or in the south, in the east or in the west," Jonathan said in a speech after taking the oath of office.   -  Guardian UK
