Datti went on to say that the certificate of return issued to the former Lagos Governor by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has no value.

He said, “We cannot have a president-elect when there has been a constitutional breach. There’s a clear interpretation of Section 134 and INEC’s interpretation of Section 134.
