The Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 Presidential Election, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima to resign because their swearing in was “unconstitutional.”

Baba-Ahmed said the Senate President Godswill Akpabio should be allowed to conduct another presidential election after the resignation of Tinubu and Shettima.

He made the call during an interview on Arise Television while responding to a question about the possibility of working with Tinubu’s administration.

The former lawmaker said that Tinubu and Shettima were fraudulently sworn in after the 2023 presidential election, addimg that the LP would not collaborate with what he described as “illegitimate government.”

He said, “The petition court and the Supreme Court did not actually affirm the success of Tinubu’s presidency, they upheld the unconstitutionality of that election, and they are happy for it to remain so. And they have the power, nobody can do anything about it.

“That is why we said it is an unreasonable show of force. If there was something we could do, we would stop it, but we are law-abiding citizens, that is why I’m here sitting with you today and still complaining.

“I was not shaken one bit. I will never be shaken by certificate forgery, by (someone who) forfeited money over narcotics. I will never be shaken by IReV switched off in the middle of the game when they saw us winning.

“Labour Party won 2023 Presidential elections. No doubt about it. They are cheats, they are bullies and they have taken full advantage of the situation in Nigeria.

“Can Tinubu and Shettima just resign and let the Senate President conduct another election? They were fraudulently sworn in, and we will not work with an illegitimate government. If it is not constitutional, we are not touching it.”

Speaking of  Tinubu’s past six months in power, Datti said the president had delivered nothing so far but disaster.

“This man has delivered nothing, and he is poised to deliver nothing. They have not moved an inch Nigeria from consumption and waste to production, and they will not do it. They will not stop the killings and start the healing. They will not stop the stealing and start the keeping, and they will not stop the slide of Nigeria, and they cannot start the climb.”

“For someone that has been playing ‘God’ for such a long time like Alhaji Tinubu and it is time for a mortal like maybe Obi or someone else to put him in his right place, for someone who has wielded so much power in a country like Nigeria, where is that power in the last six months to apply in our welfare and in our security?

“They cannot do it. They are in power for themselves. For their ego, for their wealth, for their comfort, for their own considerations, not for Nigeria.”
