Certificate Forgery

President Bola Tinubu has stated that the alleged certificate forgery leveled against him was a fabrication by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

He said Abubakar, presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party cooked up the allegation, to get at him

Tinubu who was responding to the alleged certificate forgery as filed against his candidature as filed by Atiku, said the latter took the action after he and the PDP could not secure evidence to have him disqualified in the last presidential election.

Tinubu urged the court to dismiss the appeal and affirm the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PDP) which upheld his election.

Tinubu, who flew the flag of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in that eletion, said he was validly elected having polled the highest number of votes.


He held that he was validly returned as the winner of the presidential election  by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“The hyperbolic character of the forgoing allegations was exposed by the petition itself, which had no facts in support thereof.

“Starting from the allegation of non-qualification of the Respondent, all that the Appellants submitted to the lower court through their petition was that the 2nd Respondent (Tinubu) was at the time of the election, not qualified to contest the election not having the constitutional threshold.”

 “It was at this point that they rolled out their drums of cooked-up allegations of discrepancies in the 2nd respondent’s (Tinubu’s) academic qualifications, dual nationality and sundry bemusing allegations from the backdoor.

“While they also claimed to have won the highest number of votes cast at the election, as against INEC’s declaration, throughout their petition, they did not suggest an alternative score which they considered correct, whether for themselves or the Respondent.


“Though they had alleged that the election was riddled with non-compliance and corrupt practices, the paragraphs of their petition putting up these allegations were nothing short of vague, imprecise, generic and nebulous”, he argued.
