It’s unconstitutional – LP’s Baba-Ahmed tells Buhari, CJN not to swear-in Tinubu

The vice-presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Datti Baba-Ahmed has urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to hold the swearing-in of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, on May 29.

Tinubu, the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was declared the winner of the presidential election on March 1 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

But Baba-Ahmed, speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday, argued that the APC failed to meet the requirements of Section 134 (2)(a) and (b) of the Nigerian constitution for election into the office of the President.

Addressing Buhari and the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, Baba-Ahmed said: “Mr President, do not hold that inauguration. CJN, Your Lordship, do not partake in unconstitutionality.

“You cannot swear [in] people who haven’t met the constitutional requirements; you can’t do that.

“If you do it, you have done something unlawful, something unconstitutional.”
