He said that his decision to witness the event followed a special invitation extended to him by the out-going interim president.
"I congratulated (Michel Kafando) him personally for conducting free, fair and credible elections. That is why I accepted the invitation to go to the inauguration on Dec. 29, instance.''
Kafando had earlier expressed his country's appreciation to Nigeria for restoring democracy in his country.
