Daniel Bwala, when asked about the legal implications of swearing in a new president when the presidential election petitions is yet to be fully determined?

Daniel Bwala replied, in his words…..He said, “So on like in Kenya when they have a law that determine that election petitions will have to be treated before the swearing in of a president. In Nigeria the electoral law does not provide for that.” So you have 180 days within which the first case will be determined by the court of Appeals and the 60 days for the Supreme Court, so all and all we are talking about 8months between when this case are going to be determined. So because of that they are laws which said that somebody will have to sworn in while the case is still determined in the court. Daniel Bwala was quoted as saying in an interview with the Voice Of America (VOA).
