May 29 Inauguration: Why Tinubu’s Swearing In Could Be Stopped – Sam Amadi

Sam Amadi, the director of the Abuja School of Social and Political Thoughts, has corrected his prior declaration that the office of “President-elect is not an official position.”

Insisting that he has a significant case in court that may go either way, Amadi asserted that the inauguration of President-elect Bola Tinubu could be stopped before May 29.

On Thursday, he made his declaration in a post on his Twitter account.

Wike Thinks President-elect Is An Official Position – Sam Amadi

Remember that Amadi claimed that Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike likely believed that the position of President-elect was an official one, pointing out that Tinubu’s visit could not be formal.


The announcement came after Wike declared May 3rd a public holiday for the general public to receive Tinubu, who had been invited by the governor.

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

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

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

3. 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.”
