The Nigerian government confirms that Tinubu's inauguration will not be hampered by legal action.

The Federal Government has stated that litigation will not prevent President-Elect Bola Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima, from being sworn in.

Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, spoke at a news conference in Abuja on Thursday.

According to the Chairman of the Presidential Transition Council (PTC), the May 29 ceremony is sacred.

According to Mustapha, there was a court case following the election of former President Shehu Shagari, but the inauguration went ahead.

“Also, during the election of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, there was litigation but we continued with the swearing-in.

“It was only former President Goodluck Jonathan that did not take the route of litigation,” the SGF added.

Mustapha said the 1999 Constitution and the Electoral Act made provisions on how to go about litigations arising from elections.

The PTC chairman, however, disclosed that a number of Heads of Governments had indicated interest in attending the inauguration.
