A two-term Lagos lawmaker from Igbo extraction, Hon (Dr) Jude Chukwuemeka Idimogu, says politicians that are against the victory of Sen. Bola Tinubu at the Feb. 25 Presidential election must avoid actions capable of truncating democracry

Idimogu, Representing Oshodi-Isolo Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, told newsmen in Lagos on saturday that aggrieved politicians must be cautious so as not to let down the roof.

The lawmaker, who doubled as, Deputy Apex Leader, Ndigbo in APC Lagos, was reacting to politicians kicking against the planned inauguration of the President-elect on May 29.

Idimogu described as unfortunate the televised comment by the Labour Party’s Vice Presidential Candidate, Sen. Datti Baba-Ahmed that Nigeria didn’t have President-elect yet and that it would be unconstitutional to swear- in Tinubu.


According to Idimogu, any politician who finds it difficult to accept defeat is not fit to lead the country, because such attitude reveals their other side if they win.

“Nothing will happen, Tinubu will be sworn in as President come May 29. Nigeria does not belong to an individual or a cabal” Idimogu added.

“It belongs to the people of this country. Let those who are pained by the outcome of the election guard their utterances.

“Those vying for the office of the presidency should not be seen making senseless and unguided statements.

“Let those who lost at the election be tolerant. If you lose an election, don’t bring down the roof, just wait for another four years.

“Nobody should end democracy. All of us have interest in this country and we appreciate democracy. Some people worked heard for it. God will not be fair to people who want to truncate our hard earned Democracy”

“Aggrieved politicians should guard their utterances so as not to truncate democracy, the nation’s founding fathers fought and died for” Idimogu opined.
