Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has filed a fresh suit against President Bola Tinubu, in the US.
Disclosing this to newsmen, the Special Assistant on Public communications to Atiku, Phrank Shaibu, in a statement released, said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, withdrew the case against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois County, in the United States of America because he filed a fresh case against the President in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
The Circuit Court of Cook County had dismissed Atiku’s lawsuit seeking to get access to Tinubu’s educational records at the Chicago State University. In the statement released on Sunday, August 6, Shaibu said Atiku Abubakar only ‘’withdrew the case before a Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois County, United States of America because he is pursuing the same matter in a higher court and he wanted to avoid an abuse of court processes. So, this is just the beginning.”
Atiku’s aide said it was funny that Tinubu and his supporters were rejoicing over the development as if it were a Supreme Court judgment. He maintained that President Tinubu’s academic records from primary school to university remained questionable, hence the president’s failure to identify a single former classmate.
“In the last one week, Nigerians have been watching the ongoing ministerial screening at the Senate where nominees have been made to reveal their primary, secondary and university history. Some of the ministerial nominees were even classmates with the senators screening them.
However, the man who nominated them has no educational history. He has no primary school, secondary school or university classmates. This is because he has no classmates. He actually fell from the sky.
In recent years past, Presidents have invited their former classmates to Aso Rock Villa. Even President Muhammadu Buhari hosted his classmates from Katsina Middle School. But who did Bola Tinubu invite to the Presidential Villa? Governors from 1999 set. This is a man whose entire life, background and credentials remain unknown and Atiku will ensure that the man is exposed.”
It is expected that the person to hold the Office of the President must be above board, especially on his life history.
Unfortunately, here we have a president whose history is shrouded in secrecy and for whom life started in 1993. Even the year 1993 which presents the opening chapter of the recorded history of our president is renowned for a documented indictment on narcotics trading.
Now, this is 2023 and Atiku is asking to open the shady history of our president and the same man is standing in the way of the truth about his past. That very obstruction to the innocent effort to unravel the president’s past means that the man has something to hide.
It is shameful that the President’s supporters are joyful that their man is covering up his own past. But like the saying goes: falsehood may run for a lifetime, but the truth shall overrun it in an instant. The moment of truth is here and President Tinubu has no hiding place”.
