Written by City Radio on May 19, 2023
The federal government declared yesterday that the inauguration of the incoming Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led government will hold as scheduled, saying not even litigation can stop the transition process.
It recalled that this was not the first time Nigeria is having disputed elections and the past disputes did not stop inaugurations.
Secretary to government of the federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, who stated federal government’s position was reacting to moves by certain groups to use legal proceedings to stop the inauguration, including relying on the pending petitions at the presidential petitions court challenging the electoral victory of Tinubu.
Allaying fears about plot to scuttle the inauguration billed to hold on May 29, the SGF assured that most foreign countries, heads of state, presidents and other dignitaries invited for the inauguration of the president-elect, Tinubu, have indicated interests to attend the event.
The SGF spoke yesterday in Abuja during a world press conference organised to brief Nigerians and the entire world on the programme of activities planned for the 2023 presidential inauguration.
When asked to name the foreign countries and leaders that would attend the event, the SGF noted that diplomatic privileges does not allow for the announcement of the invited foreign guests, even as he charged the media to get that information from the embassies and missions of various countries in Nigeria.
