VIDEO: Democracy Will End On 29th May If Tinubu Is Sworn In As President — Datti Baba-Ahmed Vows



Democracy Will End On 29th May If Tinubu Is Sworn In As President — Datti Baba-Ahmed Vows


Speaking on Wednesday’s edition of “Politics Today” on Channels Television, Mr Baba-Ahmed called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chief Justice of Nigeria not to swear in Bola Tinubu, whom INEC declared as the president-elect, insisting that declaring Mr Tinubu a winner and issuing him a certificate of return was against the constitution.


He said:


Whoever swears in Mr Tinubu, Mr Baba-Ahmed said, has “ended Democracy” in Nigeria.


He said: “Mr President, do not hold that inauguration. CJN your lordship, do not partake in unconstitutionality. I am taking this risks for the sake of my country.


“Yes, it is extreme and I am saying it on a national  television. It was more extreme for Yakubu (INEC Chair) to issue that certificate (of return). It was reckless. He is putting all our lives in danger. All of us.

“I am telling you that on the 29th of May 2023, swear in Tinubu as this result is, you have ended democracy whoever you are.


“You cannot swear in people who have not met constitutional requirements. If you do that, you have done something unlawful, something unconstitutional. And I am repeating it, whoever does not meet the constitutional requirement must not, must never be sworn in. You said my name. If you like I can say it again. I am Datti Baba-Ahmed.”






Mr Ahmed said the APC candidate had not met the constitutional requirement to be declared president-elect, saying INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, had put the lives of Nigerians in danger by issuing Mr Tinubu a certificate of Return.


Swearing in a ticket that has not met the constitutional requirements of the constitutions is ending Democracy. Quote me on it… and that is indeed a correct interpretation,” he said.

The National Broadcasting Code (NBC) has fined Channels Television N5 million for allegedly violating the NBC code in a programme with the Labour Party vice-presidential candidate, Datti Baba-Ahmed.


The NBC communicated the fine to Channels in a letter signed by its Director General, Balarabe Ilelah, on 27 March.

NBC said Mr Datti’s comments on Seun Okinbaloye-anchored “Politics Today” on Wednesday, 22 March, was capable of inciting public disorder and therefore violated some sections of the broadcasting code.


Mr Ilelah said the commission had warned Channels several times to consider public interest before airing any of its programmes.

“Consequently, on the following infractions, Channels Television is hereby sanctioned and shall pay a penalty of N5,000,000 (five million naira) only in the first instance,” he said, adding, any further violations by the station would attract higher sanctions.


“You are advised to pay within two weeks from the day of receipt of this letter or the penalty will be graduated.”
