In less than two weeks, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is set to be sworn in as the 16th Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. During a recent press conference, Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), reflected on the litigated transition of Olusegun Obasanjo in 1999.

Boss Mustapha assured the press that the inauguration will take place on May 29, emphasizing that Nigeria has experienced previous election transitions. He mentioned his involvement in politics and recalled the litigations surrounding the transition of President Shagari.

Despite the legal challenges, the court upheld the inauguration. The subsequent transition of Obasanjo in 1999 also faced litigation.

Undeterred by the possibility of litigation, Boss Mustapha reiterated that the inauguration will proceed as long as it adheres to the law. He emphasized the sanctity of the judiciary, stating that the courts have publicly affirmed the plans to inaugurate the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on the 29th of May.
