A message circulating on Facebook claims Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari said president-elect Bola Tinubu won’t be sworn in until he is cleared by the court.
It claims Buhari made the statement at the 2023 Nigerian army trooping and presentation of colours parade, which was held in the capital Abuja on 27 April.
The Facebook post reads: “Tinubu cannot be sworn in as President of Nigeria on the 29th of May until he is cleared by the court and well-satisfied by the court to assume the seat of the president – Buhari assured Nigerians.”
It quotes Buhari as saying: “We can’t give a man power when his election bide are still in court, he will use his power if given, to overshadow the court.”
