Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has recently submitted new documents to the Supreme Court, accusing President Bola Tinubu of forgery and perjury. Atiku claims that Tinubu submitted a fraudulent certificate obtained from Chicago State University (CSU) in 1979 to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the 2023 presidential election.
The evidence provided by Atiku includes Tinubu’s academic records, which were obtained from CSU following an Illinois court order. Atiku’s legal team has filed the evidence with the Supreme Court, seeking Tinubu’s disqualification and removal from office based on the alleged forgery and lying under oath.
An anonymous lawyer from Atiku’s team confirmed the submission of the fresh evidence but did not provide a copy of the filing. For further details, interested parties can approach the Supreme Court for access to the process.
