INEC pronouncement doesn’t make Tinubu president – Sam Amadi

Must read

The Director of the Abuja School of Social and Political Thoughts, Sam Amadi has claimed that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu’s inauguration could be stopped before May 29.

He insisted that Tinubu has a serious case in the tribunal that could go either way.

Amadi in a Twitter post on Thursday said Tinubu cannot automatically form the next government because there is a serious case waiting for him.

He wrote, “Clarification on Legal Status of President-Elect.

“@officialABAT is PRESIDENT-ELECT. But he is not yet President.

  1. It isn’t automatic that he will form the next government. He has a serious case in tribunal that can go either way.

  2. The tribunal can stop the inauguration before 29.

“Like I always say, corruption in language leads to corruption in statecraft. Just as the law gave @inecnigeria power to make a declaration, it gives the judiciary the power to reverse it. There’s no constitutional duty to inaugurate on May 29 if a declaration is legally challenged as here.

“There is no fait accompli about the situation. Some use of language can create a false narrative where we believe that a declaration by @inecnigeria no matter how wrong constitutes a new government. No. It does not, until the final court says so.”
