Why I Withdrew My Case Against Tinubu In USA — Atiku

Must read

Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party—PDP, has revealed the reason a case he filed against president Bola Ahmed Tinubu in a United States District court seeking to have his academic records was withdrawn.

The former vice president made the clarification in a statement he made through his special assistant on Public Communications, Mr Phrank Shaibu.

Shaibu said Atiku Abubakar only withdrew the case before the court because he is pursuing the same matter in a higher court and he wanted to avoid abuse of court processes.

He added that the filing of the fresh suit was why Atiku withdrew an existing case before a Circuit Court in Illinois.

According to Shaibu, Atiku’s new suit against Tinubu is marked No. 23-5099 (N. D. III.).

While confirming the lawsuit in a statement on Sunday, 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 abuse of court processes. So, this is just the beginning.”

 

Also, he noted that Tinubu’s academic records from primary school down to university level is shrouded in secrecy, hence the president’s failure to identify a single former classmate of his.

“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 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.”
