Court cases won’t stop handover to Tinubu, Shettima - FG


The Federal Government, on Tuesday, gave the assurance that court cases won’t stop the transition of power from the president, Muhammadu Buhari, to the president-elect, Bola Tinubu.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja on March 28, 2023, the Chairman of the Transition Committee, Boss Mustapha, stressed that litigation would not stop the handover ceremony from taking place.

The group had been working hard, he said, and the offices for the president and vice president-elect had been completely renovated.
"The Defense House building is prepared. The President and Vice President-elect have also been assigned security officers from the Department of State Services, Nigerian Police Force and have received protocol officials from the National Intelligence Agency and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

"Every effort is being made to ensure a smooth transition. There would be a formal peaceful transfer of power to the new President on May 29," the statement reads. 

Mustapha noted that, "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."
