Why Buhari’s Inauguration Will Not Be Flamboyant – Sylva

Published

Muhammadu-Buhari

The inauguration of the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari will not be flamboyant due to the state of the country’s economy, Chairman of the All progressives Congress (APC) presidential inauguration Committee Chief Timipre Sylva said on Wednesday.

“There are no challenges, we are planning very well and I think we are going to give Nigerians a compact inauguration. We are not going to be flamboyant. We think that this country cannot afford a flamboyant ceremony this time because the economy is not in good shape right now. So we are actually planning to give Nigerians a sanitized and compact event which will be a source of pride to Nigerians.

“We have not gotten all the confirmations but we have already gotten from some countries,” Sylva said.

The former Bayelsa State governor also dismissed the insinuation that there may be rift between the incoming and the outgoing government.

“There is no problem, it is just politics. What happened is that they were on the wrong side and they lost. We are on the right side and we won. And so, the government will have to continue and just like we were there when they were governing, they also have to be there when we are governing the country,” he said.

Sylva have been the subject of criticisms recently, with some alleging that he was carrying a corruption baggage and therefore was not qualified to be in Buhari’s cabinet. He, however, replied them saying his detractors would be shocked.

“I will be shocked to hear that. Maybe, those peddling the allegation are the courts and they have already convicted me. We have courts in the land and you know that PDP is the party of impunity. Today if I pick you up and I charge you to court on charges of corruption, does that convict you? It is only the court that can convict you and that is why we have rule of law.

“A situation where people just pick you up and say you’re corrupt just to persecute you, does not augur well for our democracy. I have been vindicated politically and I will be vindicated by the court also because I ran the best government in Bayelsa state, a better government than what the outgoing President ran in Bayelsa state. I can assure you that I am going to come out clean at the end of the day from the charges against me.

“You can ask them why they are charging me for an offence while they have discharged my accountant general and my commissioner of finance, what does that tell you? It means that, this is just mere persecution because no governor can access fund unless through his accountant general or commissioner of finance. Both of them have been exonerated that means there is actually no crime at all,” he said.
