Tribunal Asked To Stop Buhari’s Inauguration

A political party, Hope Democratic Party (HDP), has filed a motion seeking an order of the presidential election tribunal restraining President Muhammadu Buhari from presenting himself to be sworn-in on May 29th, 2019.

The party is also seeking an order restraining the Chief Justice of Nigeria from swearing-in, administering the oath of office and oath of allegiance to the president on May 29th, 2019.

In a motion on notice made available to journalists on Tuesday, Hope Democratic Party filed the motion on six grounds pursuant to section one subsection two of the 1999 constitution as amended and under the jurisdiction of the tribunal.

Some of the grounds of the application is that there is a pending petition challenging the election and return of President Buhari as the winner of the February 23 presidential election.

The Hope Democratic Party also said the petition has been served on President Buhari and pleadings have been exchanged. The Hope Democratic Party claimed that inspite of the pendency of the legal action against President Buhari, he has been making frantic efforts and preparation for his inauguration on May 29, 2019, by the CJN.

The party further said that unless President Buhari restrains from presenting himself for inauguration he will foil ” a fiat accompli and state of hopelessness on the court.

The tribunal then adjourned hearing to May 22.

  1. Nothing will come out of it. Nigeria isn't a sane cline. The government choose which order to obey and the ones to disobey, so it won't work.

    When Ganduje bribery case was been investigated by the Kano law makers, a high court gave an order for the legislators to halt investigation and you know what? the governor and law makers quickly adhered. Another order from a high court gave a restraining order fo the emirates not to be splitted. What happened? The order was ignored and they went ahead with their plans.

    Even though I am in support of the creation of the Emirates, I frown at the abuse of our legal system by politicians and this goes to show how selective the government are in obeying injunctions.

    1. Oga, even if Nigeria was a sane country, this action here by the so called Hope party is a total abuse of the legal system. So I guess their intention is for Nigeria to be without a President come May 29 abi?
      This is the height of mischief

    2. Mischief me
      So we should have a fake president so we can have.

    3. It's left for the court to decide if it's constitutional right or possible for Nigeria to be without President after May 29th. Afterall does it look we have a president to you?

  2. Wrong move. Hope hope democratic party house is clean, as I see efcc, police and dss coming for u guys.

  3. Mushroom party with no physical office, only exist on paper.

  4. Been shouting Atiku should file this since

  5. i no that will be heard to get in the present Nigeria government
