The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the 2023 election and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has explained why he filed a fresh case at the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against President Bola Tinubu.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Mr. Phrank Shuaibu on Sunday, Atiku said the new suit No. 23-5099 (N. D. III.) informed his decision to withdraw an existing case before a circuit court in Illinois.
“Waziri 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.”
According to Atiku, Tinubu’s academic records from primary school till university remained questionable, hence the president’s failure to identify a single former classmate.
“In the last one week, Nigerians have been watching the ongoing ministerial screening at the Senate where nominees have been made to reveal their primary, secondary and university education 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.”
