Inauguration Of ‘President-elect’ Tinubu On May 29 Is Sacrosanct – I.G Baba
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba has said that the May 29 date set for the inauguration of the ‘President-elect’, Bola Tinubu is sacrosanct.
The police chief said this known on Monday while addressing journalists in Abuja.
He described people making threats regarding the inauguration of Tinubu as unpatriotic brands, saying the police would defend Nigeria’s democracy.
He said the national intelligence community had been closely monitoring the activities of political elites and other elements ‘fantasising’ about subverting national security interests.
He said, “Following the successful conclusion of the 2023 general elections, it has been observed that some major political actors that the outcome did not favour, have been issuing public threats that are directed at instigating actions to frustrate the presidential inauguration ceremony on 29th May, 2023.
“Police and the national intelligence community have been closely monitoring the activities of these political elites as well as other elements who have formed themselves into unpatriotic brands whose only fantasy, in recent times, is to subvert our national security interests.”
He condemned any “extra-judicial and undemocratic means to truncate our democratic heritage” and noted that aggrieved political actors have the right to submit “grievances on the electoral outcome to the judicial process for consideration”.
