A few hours ago, Oladimeji Fabiyi, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), criticized the Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) government for handing over transition documents to the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu without being sworn into office. Fabiyi, who is a spokesman for the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, stated in an interview on Africa Independent Television’s ‘Kaakaki’ program on Friday morning that the handover ceremony violated the Constitution and democratic traditions dating back to 1999.

He said; “In this country, we have a history about how things should be done. And when we talk about strengthening our institutions, I think every president and leader, when leaning office, should be able to do things that further strengthen those institutions. What happened yesterday was not good and Nigerians are not happy about it and the main question has been; why the rush?”

“There are still issues of legitimacy but whether anybody likes it or not, Bola Tinubu is the President-elect. Nobody is controverting that. But we should try to be responsible as a government. What happened on Thursday was unconstitutional and undermined the very democratic institution that has existed for decades. In all the government transitions that I have witnessed right from 1999 to date, no President-elect was given transition documents without being sworn into office first. Even when Buhari was coming into office in 2015, this was not how it was done. So, why doing it before May 29? What is the reason for the rush?”

Fabiyi’s criticism was directed at the APC government’s decision to hand over transition documents to Tinubu before the official swearing-in ceremony. He argued that this move was unconstitutional and went against the democratic traditions of Nigeria. Fabiyi stated that the Constitution clearly states that a President-elect must be sworn in before any official handover of documents can take place.
