- The controversy surrounding the legitimacy of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is reaching a high end at the moment
- President Tinubu's legitimacy is hanging in the balance as there are no definite and concrete answers to his allegedly forged credentials
- Phrank Shuaibu, a media aide to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, describes this scenario as unfortunate for Nigeria
FCT, Abuja - President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's inability to prove beyond reasonable doubt the allegations against him about the authenticity of his credentials raises eyebrows and the opposition has continued to use it to their advantage.
Atiku Abubakar's media aide, Phrank Shuaibu, described the scenario as unfortunate and embarrassing to Nigeria, a nation widely acclaimed as Africa's giant and big brother.
As reported by SaharaReporters, Shuaibu said that the Senate would not have confirmed Tinubu as a minister if he was on the list of ministerial nominees sent for confirmation, rather, he “would have been chased out of the hallowed chambers of the Senate if he had come with questionable credentials?”
According to the Atiku's aide on Sunday, August 27, origins are important because they give a sense as to where you may end up.
