You need to be a leader with example....but u are doing the reverse ..oga with all due diligence u lack the prerequisites of a president. Hope this is not politics but if it is true then this is one of the reasons why Nigeria has been in this mess. We need to be firm with our laws and building strong institutions

Thats over, Mr Peter Obi is changing everything Anyone supporting this man to be the next president of this country is a biggest fool of the century He sabi lie Gan…. 7years now I never see 5k wey e promise What you people need to investigate right now is, what result did he use in applying at Chicago university to gain admission. That will give us the answer we want. He sure apply with certificate to get the admission, and the school still has the certificate. Did he do nysc?

His course of study wasn't even approved not until 2006.....something is missing. 😂😂😂 Gani was bent on exposing him but for the greedy,shallow thinkers who fought Gani. This time,all should be revealed Was it not a Yoruba lawyer that stood for Tinub. For Tinubu to say 'it is my turn to be president' means he has nothing to offer. He just wants to be president.We want someone who will bring Nigeria out of the woods, not somebody who claims it is his 'turn to be president'

He should have just been doing the godfather duty jeje

2023: Tinubu, Obi, Others Can't Replace Running Mates Under New Electoral Act - GroupBoth presidential candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, submitted placeholders with Who is Tinubu running with? That man is running to jail soon didn't you press the new crime he just committed? They actually can. According to the electoral act, there are only 2 conditions under which a VP candidate or president can be replaced. 1, they die or 2, they resign from the potion. These VP candidates will resign when the time reaches. The position of a vice presidential candidate is also subject to the candidate's willingness to be available for the role. He can for any reason whatsoever say he is no longer interested. Will the law force him. The answer is no.

This man is in trouble. ? MBuhari hired 22 SAN to defend his certificate, Oga Bullion Van might hire up to 150 SAN because his case is more complicated...from disputed name to disputed age till down to disputed school and not even attend primary and secondary at all. newbreed1914 A corrupt lying dictator

by SaHARAREPORTERS, New York Jun 27, 2022 On October 7, 1999, the late human rights lawyer, Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) filed an order at the Federal High Court, Lagos to compel security operatives to investigate criminal allegations which he made against the then governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu.4 hours ago According to the statement, substitution of candidates by political parties becomes possible in cases of withdrawal or death of candidates and these are presidential, gubernatorial, Senate, House of Representatives and State Assembly candidates, who were nominated by political parties through valid primaries in accordance with Section 29 and 84.Wale Odunsi The Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidential Campaign Organisation on Saturday accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of recruiting agents.falsifying his academic qualifications.

  He however stated in 1999 that he attended St Paul Children’s Home School, Ibadan, from 1958 to 1964 and Government College, Ibadan (GCI) from1965 to 1968 before proceeding to Richard Daley College, Chicago, from 1969 to 1971 and the University of Chicago. Fawehinmi in the court documents had filed an order of mandamus praying the court to compel security operatives to investigate the allegations against Tinubu who had earlier been cleared by the Lagos House of Assembly.   “Section 29 in subsection (1) says ‘every political party shall, not later than 180 days before the date appointed for a general election under this Act, submit to the Commission, in the prescribed Forms, the list of the candidates the party proposes to sponsor at the elections, who must have emerged from valid primaries conducted by the political party. “AN ORDER OF MANDAMUS compelling the respondents whether, by themselves, their agents, servants, privies or otherwise however to investigate the applicant’s complaint of false statements on oath and false declarations made under oath by Mr Bola Tinubu as contained in the two documents, that is: Independent National Electoral Commission Form CF001 declared and verified under Oath by Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu (now Governor of Lagos State) before the Commissioner for Oaths at the High Court Registry, Ikeja on December 28, 1998,” the court document had read. The Legal Adviser, Kalu Agu alleged that Tinubu supplied false information on oath in his Form EC9 submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). “And Affidavit entitled; Affidavit in respect of Lost Certificates sworn to by Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu (now Governor of Lagos State) before the Commissioner for Oath at the High Court Registry, Ikeja on December 29, 1998.   “The current and subsisting electoral law does not capture a scenario that makes possible a substitution of associate candidates or running mates either by account of voluntary withdrawal or death.” The Federal High court in its judgement however ruled that Tinubu as then sitting governor could not be tried as he enjoyed immunity from prosecution. “Since the IG is yet to act on the petition, we are using this press conference to call on the IG to do the needful.

The Appeal Court also upheld the judgement of the lower court.   “While this might not have been a deliberate oversight, it must be accepted that the law is sacrosanct and nothing can be added or removed from it unless through amendment of sections 31 and 33 to make provision for that in the future. Reacting on Saturday, Bayo Onanuga, Campaign Director of Communications, declared that the claims were not the facts. The late legal luminary then headed to the Supreme Court and the apex court ruled that though Tinubu enjoyed immunity from prosecution, he could be investigated by the police over the allegation and tried after his tenure. However, 15 years after his tenure as the governor of Lagos state, the Nigeria Police Force has refused to charge him as ruled by the Supreme Court.”   While commending the electoral umpire for the latest of the activity by the commission in ensuring that the 2023 elections meet with the requirements of the law as established by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Electoral Act 2022, as amended, the group, however, expressed “concern about the likelihood of infractions that are already being cooked by some political parties as it relates to the issue of replacement of their associate candidates or running mates in the presidential election. In 2013, one Dr. The spokesman noted that the one certificate people keep referring to was not filled by him. Dominic Adegbola filed an unsuccessful application seeking to reopen the suit.”   The statement urged cautioned the INEC on “the catch-word of placeholders as being bandied by some political parties is not known to the law and that the law does not give a room for a substitution of running mates in the 2023 election guidelines. He said the group’s claims are unfounded and nothing but “noise-making” because Tinubu “is more than qualified to be Nigeria’s president”.

The late Adegbola had sought an order compelling the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to commence an investigation into the alleged case of certificate forgery. Dismissing the application, Justice Saliu Saidu held that, by Order 34, Rule 4 of the Federal High Court Civil Procedure Rules, the applicant failed to satisfy the mandatory requirements of the law.”. Onanuga said while in exile, Tinubu’s house at Balarabe Musa Crescent in Surulere was burnt by the military. Justice Saidu also held that such an application should have been filed before the court within three months when the alleged fraudulent act was detected. According to the judge, since the application was not brought within the stipulated time, as mandated by the rules of court, it was bound to “hit the rocks”. Though Tinubu later presented a certificate indicating he attended Chicago State University but SaharaReporters learnt that had never been the issue in contention as raised by the late legal luminary, Fawehinmi. “This was what happened that time and if in 2022, he (Tinubu) now drew blank on that session, what offence has he committed?” Advertisement Onanuga alleged that the “people making noise are PDP agents” who are raising issues where there is nothing.

The issue raised by the late lawyer was about what he (Tinubu) filled in the INEC form F001 he submitted to the electoral body as his academic qualifications in 1998 which included the claim that he attended the University of Chicago and not Chicago State University. The University of Chicago is a private research university in Chicago, Illinois while on the other hand, Chicago State University is a predominantly Black, public university in Chicago, Illinois that is not highly regarded. Also challenged was what he filled in the INEC form that he attended St. Paul’s School Aroloya, Lagos for his primary education, which does not exist; University of Chicago; Government College, Ibadan between 1965 and 1968, which the authorities and Old Boys Association of Government College, Ibadan debunked. .
