May 29: Court Cases Won’t Stop Handover To Tinubu, Shettima – FG



The Federal Government has guaranteed a peaceful and orderly transfer of power from President Muhammadu Buhari to President-elect Bola Tinubu.

This occurred at the same time as the administration claimed to have finished renovating the offices of the President and Vice President-elect.

Boss Mustapha, the Chairman of the Transition Committee, emphasised to journalists on Tuesday in Abuja that legal action would not prevent the hand-over ceremony from taking place.

He said, “The committee has been active and the refurbishment of offices for the President and Vice-President elect has been completed.

“The facility at the Defence House is ready. Security personnel of the Department of State Services and the Nigerian Police Force have also been deployed to the President and Vice-President elect.

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

“The transition process is on course and all efforts are being made to ensure that it is smooth. On May 29, there would be a peaceful formal transfer of power to the new President.”

Mustapha noted that the security sub-committee had been saddled with the responsibility to ensure no one truncates the hand-over.

He said, “All litigation, whether resolved or not, will not in any way stop the process.  The President is not spending a day extra in office.  The security committee has the responsibility to ensure that nothing happens to truncate the transition process. Nigerians are very law-abiding people.

“Whoever has lost an election, there are provided avenues for those people to make whatever legal inquiry they want to make but the process would continue unabated.  We would not create another constitutional crisis. On May 29, the hand-over will take place.”

As part of the transition, Mustapha added that the FG delegation to the World Bank’s Spring conference would include four members of the President-elect’s team.

Nonetheless, he disclosed that the president-elect had named Wale Edun and Kebbi State Governor Atiku Bagudu to the transition committee.
