The Imo state Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has cautioned those calling for an interim administration at the end of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure, saying that it is tantamount to a call for anarchy.
Governor Uzodimma who gave this note of warning on Tuesday after a meeting with the President questioned the process of selecting such an interim government suggested by a prominent legal luminary, Afe Babalola recently.
Briefing State House Correspondents, he insisted that the constitution can be amended but not be abandoned.
Any superior arguments on the matter he notes should be taken through the due process at the National Assembly.
The Governor noted that the nation’s constitution has no room for an interregnum should an election not take place by May 29.
The founder of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, Afe Babalola, had earlier advised the Federal Government at a press conference on Monday to suspend the 2023 elections to allow a six-month interim government after the President’s tenure.
This according to him will allow for the establishment of a new constitution that will address insecurity, and economic, and political challenges bedeviling the country.
