APC chieftain reacts to Onaiyekan’s comment on Tinubu’s inauguration

A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress disagreed with the remark of the Archbishop Emeritus of the Catholic Dioceses of Abuja, Cardinal John Onaiyekan, that it made no sense to inaugurate politicians whose elections were being challenged at the tribunal.

In a chat with Legit.ng on Monday, May 8, Williams Dakwom, a member of the APC presidential campaign council in Plateau state, described the comment made by Onaiyekan as inappropriate.

The APC chieftain noted that such comments should be channelled to the appropriate authority, adding that only the court has the power to stop Tinubu's inauguration if nothing else does on Monday, May 29, 2023.
