President Idriss's swearing-in ceremony consisted of a 21-gun salute and taking of the oath, before he was handed instruments of power to take on another term in office at the helm.

In his speech shortly after taking oath, Idriss saluted his counterparts for coming to grace the function, saying that their coming demonstrates a close bond of brotherhood existing between respective countries and the people of Chad.

President Museveni later joined other heads of state and governments and various delegations to a luncheon hosted at the Hilton Hotel by President Idriss.
