Former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Dr Olisa Agbakoba has stated that the inauguration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as president on 29 May, is unstoppable, and any form of delay or postponement is unconstitutional. He added that although electoral tribunals are dealing with petitions filed, however, there is no constitutional process to delay the inauguration.
In his words, the former NBA president stated that “It is important to state that the inauguration of Mr Bola Tinubu on 29 May 2023 is bound to happen under our constitutional process.
“While the election tribunal deals with the petitions there is no constitutional process to delay the inauguration on 29 May. We need to obey the rule of constitutionalism.”
