The Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has said a new federal government must emerge in Nigeria on May 29, this year which will be in line with the country’s constitution. Obasanjo said this yesterday in Nairobi, Kenya while fielding questions from the BBC on the announcement made by INEC on Saturday as regards the postponement of the 2015 general polls. He observed that the constitution has outline how the new government will emerge. He said, “That is all I can go by. I cannot go by any situation or any other thing”.
The ex- president played down on the possibility of Nigeria having an interim national government should the presidential election fail to hold. Obasanjo said, “I don’t know that because the constitution does not have provision for that. There is no place in our constitution for an interim government. I will just have to wait and see”
