S’Court Judgement: Diasporans Insist Tinubu Must Resign, Ask UK, USA, To Place Visa Ban on Judges

  • President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been told to tender his resignation from being the leader of Nigeria
  • This call was made by the Coalition of New Nigeria Diaspora Movement (CNNDM) on Monday, November 6
  • The coalition has threatened to stage a worldwide protest and urged the US, the UK and the EU to place a visa ban on all the Supreme and Appeal Court judges

At least 30 different Nigerian diaspora organisations, operating collectively as the Coalition of New Nigeria Diaspora Movement (CNNDM), have announced their intention to conduct a global protest campaign called "Reclaim Nigeria Diaspora Protest" to call for his immediate resignation.

The group is urging the European Union (E.U.), the United Kingdom, the United States, and other nations to swiftly impose visa bans on the Justices and Judges of the Appeal and Supreme Courts responsible for rulings that legitimised Bola Tinubu's presidency.

This call extends to include the judges' families as well.

Imminent protest looms

During a press conference held on Monday, November 6, Jackson Ude, the Secretary General of the coalition, conveyed that CNNDM is prepared to support and rally any Nigerian groups willing to join the movement and participate in a 30-day mass protest effort aimed at reclaiming Nigeria.

Ude said:

“It is our belief that Mr. Tinubu not only rigged the 2023 Presidential elections, but he does also not possess the academic credentials to run for the elections.
Tinubu forged the Chicago State University degree certificate and, as such, committed forgery for which he must be prosecuted.
"Tinubu is also a member of a drug cartel in the United States of America, as per FBI documents recently released. He committed drug crimes.
“CNNDM agreed that a Reclaim Nigeria Diaspora Protest would be held around the world to expose the criminality of Bola Tinubu and demand his immediate resignation.

Ude said the coalition has pledged to sustain local and international pressure to compel Bola Tinubu to step down from office.

He stated that they intend to mobilise Nigerians and demonstrate in every country that Tinubu plans to visit, aiming to showcase their allegations of his involvement in forgery and criminal activity, asserting that he is unfit to govern any nation.
