The Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress has said that stopping Tinubu’s swear-in will be unconstitutional.

Recall that five residents of the Federal Capital Territory recently approached the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court for an order to halt the ceremony.

They had applied for an order restraining the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, any other judicial officer from swearing in any candidate in the February 25 presidential election as President or Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, until it was judicially determined with finality or in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution that such candidate had fulfilled the requirement of Section 134(2) (b) of the constitution.

Reacting in an interview with Sunday PUNCH, the Lagos State APC spokesman, Seye Oladejo, described their steps as “an exercise in futility”.

He expressed confidence that the swearing-in of Tinubu as president would be held unhindered.

According to him, it is against the provision of the constitution and precedence for a President-elect to emerge and not be sworn in.

Meanwhile, the National Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council, Yabagi Sani, has called for calm ahead of the swearing-in.

*A vote of confidence is hereby passed on the national leadership of LP led by National Chairman of our great party, Julius Abure; the National Secretary; Alhaji Umar Farouk Ibrahim; the National Organizing Secretary-Chief Clement Ojukwu; and the Treasurer.

“The vote of passed on the national leadership was with regards to the sterling performance they have rendered to the party in their various capacities as National officers and leaders of the party.

“We also resolved that the Alhaji Lamidi Apapa and his group’s attempt to factionalize the leadership of LP was an attempt in futility and an unwarranted meddlesomeness that should not be allowed at all.

“We, therefore, urge Alhaji Apapa and his co-travellers to retrace their steps so that history will be kind to them.

“We therefore stand with the national leadership of Mr Julius Abure and his executive.
