Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has attacked Archbishop Emeritus of Abuja Catholic Archdiocese, John Onaiyekan, for saying President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu should not be sworn-in on 29 May.
Onaiyekan, in an interview on Channels TV on Thursday said Tinubu ought not to have been sworn-in why there are cases in court challenging his victory at the presidential poll.
There are cases in court that have not been disposed of. That is why we are in an anomalous situation. We have a president-elect whose election is being challenged and the court is handling it.
“I’m still waiting for the court to tell me who won the election. It doesn’t make much sense to be swearing in people when they are still in court,” he said.
Reacting to this, Fani-Kayode rubbished Onaiyekan’s comment, saying and those who shared his views that the swearing in of the President-elect should be postponed until after the Election Tribunal has delivered its judgement, should know that the Nigerian people had spoken and that the deep state conspiracy to stop Tinubu from becoming President failed long ago.
“We are well past that stage and you cannot stop a moving train. Those that have hardened their hearts and that have refused to accept God’s will and admonition to let Asiwaju and the Nigerian people go shall, like Pharaoh, perish before our very eyes.
Those that are filled with bitterness, hate, envy, fury and rage and that seek to pursue us into the Red Sea as we make our way to the Promise Land shall be drowned by it.
“Whether they like it or not, God-willing, the President-elect shall be sworn in on May 29th and those that want him dead or wish him ill shall see the grave long before he does. This is the doing of the Lord and it is marvelous in our sight,” he stated.
