The federal government has stated that the litigations around Bola Tinubu's presidency will not stop the process of his swearing-in scheduled to take place on May 29.
Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, the Chairman of the Transition Committee, Boss Mustapha, disclosed that the transition of power will be smooth and peaceful.
Mustapha also added that the refurbishment of offices for the President-elect and the Vice President-elect has been completed.
“The committee has been active and the refurbishment of offices for the President and Vice-President elect has been completed.
“The facility at the Defence House is ready. Security personnel of the Department of State Services and the Nigerian Police Force have also been deployed to the President and Vice-President-elect.
“Protocol officers have also been assigned to both the President-elect and Vice-President-elect from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Intelligence Agency.
“The transition process is on course and all efforts are being made to ensure that it is smooth.
“On May 29, there would be a peaceful formal transfer of power to the new President.
“All litigation, whether resolved or not, will not in any way stop the process.
“The President is not spending a day extra in office.
“The security committee has the responsibility to ensure that nothing happens to truncate the transition process. Nigerians are very law-abiding people.
