The Supreme Court has been urged to remove President Bola Tinubu from office by the Atiku Support Organisation, a group devoted to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate, filed an appeal contesting the decision of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) on the outcome of the 2023 presidential election. The Supreme Court chose Monday, October 23, to hear the appeal.
The group claimed there is “evidence that shows Tinubu is a man of questionable character” in a statement published on Sunday and signed and issued by Victor Moses, who serves as the group’s national publicity secretary.
It further stated that Tinubu suffers from identity difficulties and has a history of drug trafficking and money laundering, stressing that he deserves a prison term, not the office of the President of Nigeria.
The statement reads, “The 2023 presidential election has left Nigeria in a bad and terrible shape because the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, whom much was entrusted and expected, decided to boggle and sidestep the entire lawful electoral process in broad daylight and forced upon Nigerians unelected, unelectable and unqualified Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president.
“INEC’s conduct in the 2023 presidential election was the same as that of ‘419ners and Yahoo boys.
“The law is clear even to the uneducated layman in the village that no person with a criminal history and career in crime should be the president of Nigeria. The law is clear that no man who forged and submitted a fake school certificate to INEC should be allowed to be president.
“The law angrily frowns on and forbids a man who severally and serially lied on oath since 1998 about his academic records, age, name, citizenship status, and his entire identity, among others, to be the President.”
The group urged the judges of the supreme court to remove Tinubu in order to protect the integrity of the Nigerian constitution and repair the judiciary’s reputation.
Additionally, it asked the judges not to give in to threats, extortion, harassment, and “Ghana must-go-bags,” noting that nothing terrible would happen if Tinubu were to lose his position.
It added: “Do not cave into their intimidation, blackmail, bullying, and ‘Ghana must-go-bags’. Stand firm for the Constitution and for the people of Nigeria. You have a chance to restore the image of the judiciary and get back the lost confidence of the people,” the group said.
“No nation all over the world has a documented drug trafficker as a president. Nigeria should not be known for setting the wrong records. You have 48 hours to rescue this nation and be on the good part of the history books or uphold criminality and be judged by history.“
