Nigeria’s Bola Tinubu: Declared President-Elect but the rumbles persist


By John Eche


Elections in Nigeria have hardly been a walk in the park and that is what former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is grappling with at the moment. Though Tinubu who ran on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Party, APC, has been declared to be President-Elect after having been announced by the umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC as winner of the February 25th presidential contest, the rumbles yet persist.


At least, two of his principal challengers, Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, have since filed petitions to reverse Tinubu’s declared victory, and by the day the airwaves and social media sites resonate with frenetic debates and revelations concerning how the elections went and why he should not be President. At the same time too, his loyalists are pushing on all fours to defend his declared win and ensure he assumes the mantle of President on the much anticipated May 29th power handover date. It’s indeed ding-dong time in the Nigerian political arena.
