- Joe Biden has made his first entry into the White House as the number one citizen of the United States
- The 46th US president, alongside his wife, was welcomed into the grandeur of the White House by military members and a band
- Biden has also sent his historic first tweet as US president
After his inauguration as the 46th president of the United States of America (USA), President Joe Biden has arrived the White House, with first lady Jill Biden by his side.
CNN reports that the newly inaugurated US president was greeted by military members and a band.
Legit.ng gathers that the band played "Hail to the Chief" and "God Bless America" as the couple looked out.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng also notes that Biden has released his first tweet as president.
According to Aljazeera, shortly after delivering his inaugural address, the @POTUS Twitter account sent its first tweet from Biden.
The tweet reads:
“There is no time to waste when it comes to tackling the crises we face. That’s why today, I am heading to the Oval Office to get right to work delivering bold action and immediate relief for American families."
The @POTUS Twitter handle transferred from Trump, who was suspended from major social media platforms, to Biden just before Biden was sworn in as president and, controversially, Twitter reset the number of followers to zero upon the transfer.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that President Muhammadu Buhari has warmly welcomed the inauguration of Biden and Senator Kamala Harris as president and vice president of the United States respectively on Wednesday, January 20.
The Nigerian leader expressed hope that their presidency will mark a strong point of cooperation and support for Nigeria as well as the African continent.
President Buhari said this in a statement released by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, on Wednesday.
