Bola Tinubu To Be Sworn In As President Of Nigeria Despite Brouhaha

President-elect Bola Tinubu will be sworn into office on May 29th, according to Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, despite legal challenges to his election.

As outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari officially leaves office in May, groups unhappy with the results of the presidential election on February 25 are calling for an interim administration.

The opposition political parties have the right to legally contest the presidential election, according to Mr Mohammed, who stated there is “no basis” for forming an interim government.

On March 21, four presidential candidates filed lawsuits to contest Mr Tinubu’s election, claiming that votes had been widely rigged and totals had been manipulated.

The judiciary decides a presidential election petition in around eight months. Within 180 days of the petition’s filing, it must be heard. Within 21 days of the decision date, the petitioner may take the tribunal’s decision to the Court of Appeal for review.

The appellate court’s decision is delivered within 60 days, and if the petitioners disagree with it, they have 21 days to appeal it to the Supreme Court, whose ruling is definitive.
