Tinubu is Not President-Elect, Says Datti-Baba


Report by Victor DeGreat – Yusuf Datti Baba Ahmed, Labour Party, LP Vice President candidate says Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is not President-elect, when there has been a constitutional breach, there’s a clear interpretation of section 134 and INEC’s interpretation of section 134.

Yusuf Datti Baba Ahmed made the assertion during an interview on a national television on Tuesday morning, he added that Asiwaju Tinubu is not President-elect, what he holds is a dud certificate adding that the certificate is an assault on the constitution.

In his words “we cannot have a President-elect when there has been a constitutional breach, there’s a clear interpretation of section 134 and INEC’s interpretation of section 134.

“The electoral act which the lawyers are working on, is a process document and the constitution is a different document entirely.

“A constitutional breach is a big issue, it is a mar or break issue.  We are not just talking about losing the election. We are talking about a constitutional breach there is no president-elect; I beg to said, the standard meaning of Section 134; there is a clear interpretation and there is the INEC interpretation.

“By that interpretation, we don’t have a president-elect in Nigeria today.  Alhaji Tinubu in holding dub certificate, it will bounce.  You cannot swear-in a President who’s certificate of return assaults the constitution.

“The constitution is the platform, which the presidency rests”, Yusuf Datti Baba Ahmed explained.
