“Tinubu won’t trample on rule of law”, Shettima

He was speaking against the backdrop of a poser from the audience by one Muhammed Abubakar Husseini on why President Muhammadu Buhari failed to act during the face-off between Hajia Bala Usman and the former minister, Rotimi Amaechi.

Husseini was of the opinion that the rule of law was obviously trampled upon when the minister suspended Usman and yet Buhari carried on as if all was well.

Shettima pointed out that Tinubu was the first person to appoint a lady as a deputy governor in Nigeria, and the first person to appoint a lady as chief judge of a state.

“In the North, I was the first person to appoint five women to the state Executive Council and then Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai followed suit”, Shettima stated.

Buhari opens up on why Tinubu defeated Atiku, Obi, others

President Muhammadu Buhari has given a reason why the opposition parties lost the 2023 presidential election to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Buhari, in a veiled message, described Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party, who are major oppositions, as victims of over-confidence.

The president said during the electioneering, the APC was working hard to retain power, and the opposition parties were shrouding themselves in overconfidence.

Reacting to this development, a top Nigerian lawyer, Barrister Oluwole Olukunle Moses disclosed that Tinubu’s inauguration is imminent and cannot be suspended constitutionally.
