It’s Unconstitutional Swearing In Winner Whose Victory Hasn’t Been Affirmed By Court – Ejimakor


By Adadainfo

Barr Aloy Ejimakor, Friday, faulted swearing-in of winners of the just-concluded 2023 general elections whose victory is being interrogated at the court.

He made his position known via his verified Twitter handle. According to him, there is no provision in the constitution stating that a winner ‘must be sworn in’ when their victory is being contested.

He tweeted, “Given that the FINALITY of election results is decided by the Court, except where the INEC-declared result is uncontested, it’s unconstitutional to swear in a winner whose victory has not been affirmed by the Court.

“Where’s the law that says such a winner must be sworn in? None!”

Our correspondent reports that Barr Ejimakor is the special counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
