Joe Biden has been sworn in as the President of the United States at the inauguration ceremony in Washington DC at exactly 5:48 pm Nigerian time.
Mr Biden who is now the 46th president of the United States took oath which was administered by Justice John G. Roberts, Jr.
Prior to the 46th president’s swearing in, Ms. Harris, using a bible, was sworn in as vice president by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Kamala Harris is now the first female vice President in the history of US.
As expected, former President Donald Trump and his family were absent while Mike Pence, the former Vice President, fulfilled his promise to attend.
Former Presidents Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr, Barack Obama and their wives attended the inauguration ceremony.
