He believes the country is stuck because of the unclear outcome of the 2023 general election and the undecided fate of the next president.

During an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, Cardinal Onaiyekan explained that it is hard to say if the elections are truly finished, as there are many legal cases still unresolved.

The cleric said, “We are in an anomalous situation, we have a declared president-elect whose election is being challenged and the courts are handling it.


“I think I am entitled to take the position that I am still waiting for the courts to tell me who won the election.”

He said he is waiting for the courts to determine the election winner, and questioned the practice of swearing in candidates while their cases are ongoing.
