Certificate Forgery: “Obi Seeking Cheap Media Attention” – APC


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken a direct swipe at the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi accusing him of seeking “cheap” media attention.

This follows an earlier press conference held by the Labour Party’s candidate, Obi, in which he called on President Bola Tinubu to address the controversy surrounding his academic records.

Obi’s press conference was prompted by a recent decision by a US court, which ordered the Chicago State University (CSU) to release President Tinubu’s academic records at the request of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

In response to these developments, APC’s spokesperson, Felix Morka, issued a statement on Wednesday.

Morka asserted that the Nigerian citizens who voted for President Tinubu during the elections were well aware of his qualifications and were not misled in any way. He further emphasized that President Tinubu does not require any re-introduction to the public, and his election was conducted in full accordance with the law.

“Unwilling to miss out in the orchestrated campaign of calumny against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu over his certificate from the Chicago State University, Obi jumped on the tailboard of Atiku’s bandwagon to satisfy his uncanny and insatiable thirst for cheap media attention, long after his Labour Party had dissociated itself from a bogus call to action by the former Vice-President,” the statement reads.

Obi Addresses Press Conference on Tinubu’s Certificate Controversy 

“In his drivel, Peter Obi demanded that the President reintroduce himself to Nigerians, as though the 8.9 million Nigerians who voted him last February were all groggy when they made their free democratic choice.

“Mr. Obi must know that President Tinubu does not need a re-introduction. He does not have any identity problem, except the one contrived by the Atikus and Peters of our political firmament.

“The 8.9 million Nigerians who voted him into office were, and remain, aware of his outstanding record and accomplishments as a defender of democracy, freedom, social and economic justice for over three decades.

“Nigerians know President Tinubu as a thoroughbred professional and former auditor and treasurer of Mobil Nigeria, now ExxonMobil.”
