The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has raised serious concerns about President Bola Tinubu’s eligibility to hold office and has called upon the Supreme Court of Nigeria to take action.
In a press statement released Tuesday, October 3, 2023, HURIWA demanded President Tinubu resign immediately due to identity theft and certificate forgery allegations.
The controversy centres around President Tinubu’s academic records recently released by the Chicago State University (CSU). These records have ignited a wave of scepticism, with many questioning their authenticity.
It has come to light that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, sought access to these records to support his appeal before the Supreme Court.
HURIWA’s call for President Tinubu’s resignation stems from the revelation that the academic records from South-West College, which he used to gain admission to CSU, belonged to a woman. According to the documents provided by CSU to Atiku, Tinubu was enrolled as a female student under the name “Bola Adekunle Tinubu.”
HURIWA strongly condemns this alleged identity theft and certificate forgery, which it views as a disgraceful deception perpetrated by President Tinubu over many years.
Furthermore, HURIWA accuses President Tinubu of violating Nigeria’s constitution and electoral laws, asserting that he lacks moral and legal justification to remain in the highest office in the country.
The human rights group has accused President Tinubu of involvement in other criminal activities, including drug trafficking and money laundering, citing documents reportedly obtained from US authorities that link him to these offences.
HURIWA calls upon the Supreme Court to uphold justice and protect the integrity of Nigeria’s electoral process and democratic values. They warn that failure to disqualify or compel President Tinubu’s resignation may lead to losing trust in leadership and institutions among Nigerians, potentially sparking civil disobedience and mass protests to demand accountability.
In conclusion, HURIWA urges Nigerians to reject President Tinubu as their leader, expressing concerns about the potential embarrassment and danger his alleged actions pose to Nigeria’s international reputation.
