Why Tinubu should be sworn in – Labour Party Faction Reveals

The Lamidi Apapa faction of the Labour Party has distanced itself from the calls for an interim government and that the president elect should not be sworn in on May, 29, because of the ongoing legal tussle between the duo.

Lamidi faction stated that the swearing in of Tinubu “may not have any impact on the ongoing legal tussle on the presidential election involving our party, APC and INEC.”

In a statement made available to the newsmen on Wednesday, the faction’s prolocutor, Abayomi Arabambi, maintained that the Electoral Act and the Constitution of Nigeria did not give room for a vacuum, “so whether the President-elect is sworn in or not, there is right to remove him legally if it is found out that he was not duly elected.”

The faction spokesman cited how the court removed Chris Ngige and confirmed Peter Obi as the governor of Anambra in 2003.

Arabambi also said that What Peter Obi is looking for is not allowed by the law.

He stressed that “a refusal to swear in Tinubu as President will create a vacuum in the system, saying the law abhors this.

“The Law has to be complied with, which is to swear in Tinubu as president, and if anybody wants to change the narrative, they will have to change the law.

Speaking further: “Labour Party warns all Obidents clandestinely parading themselves as LP members and other Obidients who may be agitating that the President-elect should not be sworn in to have a rethink as Labour Party will not support any unlawful means of agitations or change of government violently.”he concluded.
