President Bola Tinubu has been brought before the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, by Atiku Abubakar.
This was noted In a statement on Sunday night by Atiku’s Special Assistant on Public Communications Phrank Shaibu. The case is marked No. 23-5099 (N. D. III.).
According to Shaibu, noted that the filing of the fresh suit was why Atiku withdrew an existing case before a Circuit Court in Illinois.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission had announced Tinubu as the winner of the February 25 election, which is being contested by Atiku, the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate in the election.
The statement reads in part: “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 abuse of court processes. So, this is just the beginning.”
He maintained that Tinubu’s academic records from elementary school to university remained suspect, which is why the President was unable to name even one of his former classmates.
“In the past weeks, 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 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.”
