Nigeria Has No President-elect, Swearing In Tinubu Is Like Bringing Back The Military Regime – Datti Baba-Ahmed
The Labour Party Vice Presidential Candidate in the February 25 elections, Yusuf Datti Baba Ahmed, has declared that Nigeria has no president-elect.
According to him, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu can’t be seen as the President-elect because the certificate of return he holds is a dud certificate with no value.
The Labour Party vice presidential candidate added that swearing in Tinubu will be contrary to the provisions of section 134 of the Nigerian constitution.
Baba-Ahmed who made his view known on Wednesday during an interview with Arise TV said swearing in Tinubu as Nigeria’s president is as good as swearing in a military regime.
According to Datti Ahmed, “We cannot have a president-elect when there has been a constitutional breach. There’s a clear interpretation of section 134 and INEC’s interpretation of section 134.
“Asiwaju Tinubu is no president-elect, what he holds is a dud certificate that has no value.
“Swearing in Tinubu is an assault on the constitution, swearing in Tinubu is as good as swearing in a military regime.”
