Court cases will not prevent handover to Tinubu, Shettima – FG


On Tuesday, the Federal Government assured that the transfer of authority from President Muhammadu Buhari to President-elect Bola Tinubu would be smooth and peaceful.

This came as the government announced that the refurbishment of the President and Vice-President elect’s offices had been finished.

Boss Mustapha, Chairman of the Transition Committee, told journalists in Abuja on Tuesday that litigation would not prevent the handover ritual from taking place.

“The committee has been active,” he said, “and the refurbishment of the President and Vice-President elect’s offices has been completed.”

“The Defence House building is complete. The Nigerian Police Force and the Department of State Services have also deployed security officers to the President and Vice-President elect.

“Protocol officers from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Intelligence Agency have also been assigned to both the President-elect and Vice-President-elect.”

“The transition process is on track, and every effort is being made to make it as smooth as possible.” There would be a peaceful formal transfer of authority to the new President on May 29.”

Mustapha mentioned that the security subcommittee had been tasked with ensuring that no one truncates the handover.

“All litigation, whether resolved or not, will not in any way halt the process,” he said. The President is not staying an additional day in office. The security group is responsible for ensuring that nothing disrupts the transition process. Nigerians are extremely law-abiding citizens.

“Whoever has lost an election, there are avenues for those people to conduct whatever legal investigation they want, but the process will continue unabated.” We would not instigate a new constitutional catastrophe. The handover will take place on May 29.”

As part of the transition, Mustapha announced that four members of the President-elect’s staff would accompany the FG delegation to the World Bank’s Spring meeting.

He did, however, disclose that the president-elect has nominated Wale Edun and Kebbi State Governor Atiku Bagudu to serve on the transition committee.
