The ongoing controversy surrounding the alleged certificate forgery saga has taken a new turn as the Convener of the Coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Political Parties for Good Governance (PPGG), Dr Lilian Ene Ogbole, has called for the stripping of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar of his national honour.
Addressing the press in Abuja on Thursday, Dr Lilian Ene Ogbole accused Atiku of making baseless allegations against President Tinubu, labelling his conduct as unpatriotic and detrimental to the principles of democracy and the rule of law. She emphasized the need to maintain the dignity of the office of the President by holding individuals accountable for their actions.
In her statement, Dr Ogbole highlighted Atiku’s alleged history of electoral manipulation and lack of respect for constituted authority, citing former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s past remarks on Atiku’s lack of patriotism and decency. She further criticized Atiku’s recent press conference, characterizing it as an attempt to shift blame onto President Tinubu.
Coalition of Civil Society Organisations Demands Stripping of Atiku’s National Honour
Calling for decisive action, Dr Ogbole urged President Tinubu to exercise his authority in line with the provisions of the 1999 constitution of Nigeria as amended by revoking Atiku Abubakar Sadiq’s national honours of GCON. Stressing the need to uphold the significance of such national recognitions, she emphasized that individuals with Atiku’s character should not retain awards for honourable figures.
With this development, the unfolding political drama continues to capture the public’s attention, sparking debates about the ethics and conduct of key political figures in Nigeria.
