A Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has disclosed why the inauguration of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, should not be stopped on May 29.
It would be recalled that Ambrose Owuru, a past presidential candidate and constitutional lawyer who ran for the presidency under the platform of the Hope Democratic Party in 2019, on Tuesday filed a fresh motion on notice to stop the inauguration of Bola Tinubu as Nigeria’s next President on May 29.
The suit marked CA/CV/259/2023 was instituted Tuesday at the Court of Appeal in Abuja.
Owuru in the suit is praying the Court of Appeal to prohibit President Buhari, the AGF and INEC from inaugurating the 2023 President-elect on May 29, claiming that he was the valid winner of the 2019 election and had not spent his tenure as required by law.
But reacting via twitter, Sani said stopping Tinubu’s inauguration could lead Nigeria into political paralysis and anarchy.
Tweeting, Sani wrote: “The inauguration should not be stopped so that we don’t jump into political paralysis and anarchy.
“The PDP and LP are in court, and that’s okay. I believe even those who are in court want to inherit the country in one piece.”
Tinubu’s victory in the last presidential election has remained contentious.
The opposition parties, like the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Labour Party, LP, are challenging Tinubu’s victory in court.
