Human rights activist and renowned lawyer, Femi Falana SAN, has faulted President Jonathan’s decision to hand over on May 28, a day before the swearing in of President-elect, Gen Buhari.
Falana said President Jonathan’s decision would create a vacuum in power for a few hours before Buhari is sworn in on the morning of May 29.
Falana said; “As far as the law is concerned, President Jonathan is in charge of the country until May 29. He cannot cut short his presidency in the name of handing over the day before at a dinner, as there is no provision for a vacuum.
“He is the president till the morning of May 29 when Buhari takes the oath of office. There is no provision for a vacuum of eight or nine hours, and I am sure the president will be properly advised.”
