However, speaking in an interview, Daniel Bwala a lawyer and spokesperson for PDP’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar said Tinubu will certainly be sworn in as president on May 29.

So if the Court of Appeal gives that opportunity and holds the view that 25 percent is sacrosanct then there won’t be swearing-in”.
