I’m still waiting for the courts to tell me who won the presidential election – Cardinal Onaiyekan

The Archbishop Emeritus of the Archdiocese of Abuja, Cardinal John Onaiyekan has said that Nigeria is currently in a quagmire with regards to the 2023 general elections and the fate of its next president.

Cardinal Onaiyekan who today was a guest on Channels Television, said it is uncertain if the elections are truly over as some may claim, seeing that there are so many cases still lingering in the courts.

“We are in an anomalous situation, we have a declared president-elect whose election is being challenged and the courts are handling it.

“I think I am entitled to take the position that I am still waiting for the courts to tell me who won the election,” the cleric opined.

He argued that it does not make much sense to be swearing-in people when they are still in court, adding that there needs to be an urgent review of the nation’s electoral process as to ensure that a winner will be sworn-in whom everybody will rally around.
