Certificate Controversy: Reintroduce Yourself To Nigerians, Obi Tells Tinubu

The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi, has called on President Bola Tinubu to reintroduce himself to Nigerians.

He is speaking in light of what has transpired recently where a US court released the President’s academic records on the request of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, Obi asked President Tinubu to again, tell Nigerians the schools he attended, if he participated in the one-year National Youth Service Corps scheme.He also asked him to clarify if he indeed changed his name at any time and save the country from what he called an international embarrassment of identity crisis.

The former Anambra State governor maintained that having occupied the highest political office in the country, President Tinubu no longer has a right to any privacy regarding his identity.

The former Vice President had requested the release of President Tinubu’s certificate from the Chicago State University over the suspicion that the certificate the former Lagos State governor submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) may not be authentic.

During a press conference last week after the President’s academic records have been released to him, Atiku who is challenging Tinubu’s election, called on Obi, Rabiu Kwankwaso, and other Nigerians to join his quest for “justice” over the matter.

Atiku also vowed not to stop on the issue as he said he would continue to seek justice over the matter.
