Inauguration Should Take Place After The Tribunal Has Settled The Election Cases—Bode George

Bode George, the former Deputy National Chairman (South) of the Peoples Democratic Party, maintains that there should be no inauguration if the tribunal's hearings are not finished by May 29.

In a recent interview, George discussed Bola Tinubu's election as President, the current legal battle, and reasons for him not to take the oath of office on May 29.

George emphasised the significance of following the legal system and waiting till it is finished before moving forward with the inauguration.

He made it clear that hurrying the process would be bad for the country and its stability.

George emphasised that it is the court's duty to carefully consider each petition and piece of supporting evidence before rendering a fair decision.

When questioned about the potential for an interim administration or postponing the inauguration, George objected and suggested that the national leadership should continue to be in place until the legal dispute is settled.

He suggested that in order to maintain continuity and prevent any constitutional conflicts, a member of the National Assembly may be temporarily sworn in.

George also voiced his worries about the current status of Lagos and disputed claims that Tinubu developed the city.

He gave examples of deteriorated infrastructure and stressed the necessity for efficient state administration.

However, in response to a question on his thoughts on the possibility of Tinubu becoming the next President, George said that whoever takes on the office of President should be remembered in prayer for the good of the country.

In his closing remarks, George emphasised the value of perseverance and respect for the law, and he urged a postponement of the inauguration until the legal matter is resolved.

In addition to emphasising the value of a peaceful transfer of power, he stated his confidence that the court will carry out its obligations impartially.
