Presidential poll legal tangle: I will drop the fight only after Supreme Court judgment, says Atiku


Former Nigeria’s Vice-President and Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the February 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday said he will only drop the fight of ”reclaiming his stolen mandate” after the Supreme cyourt has ruled on his election appeal.

Atiku spoke at a news conference on Thursday on his discovery about President Bola Tinubu’s Chicago State University’s certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He said he would wait until the apex court had ruled on his appeal, pointing out that there is no other court after the Supreme Court.

Persecondnews reports that Tinubu’s certificate has been enmeshed in controversy following the university’s deposition on the documents on Tuesday in compliance with the ruling of Magistrate Jeffrey Gilbert.

Gilbert had on September 19, granted Atiku’s request for the release of Tinubu’s academic records.

However, President Tinubu filed a review of the order as his lawyers insisted that the documents would not be relevant in Atiku’s appeal against Tinubu at the Supreme Court and asked for a review of the ruling.

The federal judge, Nancy Maldonado, overruled Tinubu’s objections and ordered the CSU to release the President’s academic records.

Speaking on the just released CSU documents, Atiku noted that ”Nigeria’s reputation is at stake with the controversy surrounding the Chicago State University’s certificate submitted to INEC by President Bola Tinubu.”

The former Vice-President called on Nigeria’s traditional, religious and political leaders to join in the campaign to ensure probity regarding President Tinubu’s credentials to be Nigeria’s President.

“This quest is not for or about Atiku Abubakar; it’s a quest for the enthronement of truth, morality, justice, and accountability in our public affairs.
“In line with this, let me call on all well-meaning Nigerians, leaders of thought, religious, traditional, community, and political leaders.

“In particular, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso of NNPP, leaders of political parties in Nigeria, and every single person who loves this country as I do, and who wishes nothing but the best for this country to join me in this campaign to enshrine accountability, and the basic principles of justice, morality, and uprightness in our country and in our government,” Atiku said.

Also speaking, Atiku’s lawyer, Mr Kalu Kalu, listed five main discoveries from the documents that will be relevant to the former vice Presidents case in court.

He said: “Bola A. Tinubu forged the certificate he presented to INEC; the qualifying certificate from Southwest College bears a female indicating it does not belong to Bola A. Tinubu who is a male; The CSU admission application form claims that Bola A. Tinubu attended Government College Lagos and graduated in 1970 when the school was established in 1974.

” The owner of the CSU document is a Black American and Bola A. Tinubu denied having dual citizenship in his INEC form which means the documents do not belong to him or he perjured in his INEC Form; and he claimed A in his name in the Chicago documents is Ahmed but the NYSC documents he submitted to INEC have Adekunle.”
