Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, has accused President Bola Tinubu of submitting false documents to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
In a statement released on Sunday by Atiku’s media aide, Paul Ibe, it was claimed that President Tinubu is attempting to manipulate the narrative to the public through media influence. According to Atiku, Chicago State University (CSU) admitted under oath that it does not possess a true and correct copy of the diploma issued to Bola Tinubu in 1979.
The statement also pointed out that Tinubu presented a non-existent Government College Lagos certificate to INEC, claiming to have graduated from a school founded four years after his purported graduation date. It was further alleged that a certificate from another United States school belonging to a female candidate was submitted by Tinubu.
Atiku’s aide raised concerns about the President’s National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate bearing the name “Bola Adekunle Tinubu,” even though CSU affirmed that the middle name “A” was never included in any document in his file. The statement suggests that one forgery is being used to cover another.
The statement also accused President Tinubu of having a history of forgery and perjury, pointing to discrepancies in his educational claims when he filed for the governorship election 1999. It was claimed that Gani Fawehinmi would have exposed these issues without Tinubu’s immunity as the Governor of Lagos State at the time.
In conclusion, the statement called for integrity and morality, questioning whether President Tinubu would resign from office to avoid impending embarrassment or if his supporters would continue to spread lies to confuse the public.
