IGP assures of President-Elect Tinubu's swearing-in on May 29

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has declared that the swearing-in of President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on May 29, 2023, is sacrosanct.

He made this known on Monday while addressing the press in Abuja.

The IGP condemned those making threats about the inauguration of Tinubu, saying that they are unpatriotic.

He assured the public of the readiness of the police force to defend Nigeria’s democracy.

Baba disclosed that the national intelligence community had been closely monitoring the activities of political elites and other elements who are “fantasizing” about subverting national security interests.


He added; “Following the successful conclusion of the 2023 general elections, it has been observed that some major political actors that the outcome did not favour, have been issuing public threats that are directed at instigating actions to frustrate the presidential inauguration ceremony on 29th May, 2023.

“Police and the national intelligence community have been closely monitoring the activities of these political elites as well as other elements who have formed themselves into unpatriotic brands whose only fantasy, in recent times, is to subvert our national security interests.

The police chief also spoke against any “extra-judicial and undemocratic means to truncate our democratic heritage” and encouraged aggrieved political actors to submit their grievances on the electoral outcome to the judicial process for consideration.

The IGP’s statement comes amid growing tension and uncertainty about the swearing-in ceremony, with some groups threatening to disrupt the event.
