A rights group, Save Nigeria Movement has described as shadow chasing, attempts by Atiku Abubakar and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to contest the authenticity of President Bola Ahmed Tinibu’s Chicago State University authentic certificate with claims that it is a forged document even when the University has publicly admitted that Mr. President graduated from the institution with honours and the document is valid.

In a release signed and made available to journalists in Abuja by its Convener, Rev. Solomon Semaka, the group dismissed the rumoured case of forgery as propagated by members of the opposition as well as paid online and cyber bullies like Jackson Ude as failed propaganda that has no place in our national reality considering the fact that CSU has come forward to validate Tinubu’s certificate and attested to the fact that he was their student.

According to the release, “it is surprising that members of the opposition and their paid thugs have continued to distort and twist facts in pursuit of their political desperation. A case of forgery ceased to exist the moment the CSU came out to confirm the president indeed attended and graduated from the school . In the case of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, CSU has not only testified that he was their student, they also said on oath that he graduated . What else is too difficult for political jobbers to understand again?”

The group issued a stern warning to Jackson Ude and his paid masters to desist from meddling with a legitimate government that was massively voted into power by the people using half baked conspiracy theories that lack credibility and substance to blackmail the Nigerian judicial system, adding that, claims of interference with supreme court justices are false, misleading and maliciously calculated to derail Nigeria’s democratic journey.

“The Allegations of forgery and the so called inference with justices of the Supreme Court as being peddled by the notorious Jackson Ude against prominent Nigerians including the Director General (DG), Department of State Security (DSS) Mr. Yusuf Magaji Bichi is false. Mr. Bichi is a patriot with impeccable character, associating him with empty conspiracies is totally unacceptable. The opposition has taken their desperation too far as Nigerians know the truth and have risen stiffly in support of their leader as facts have overwhelmed the falsehood that enemies of Nigeria hoped to use against President Tinubu. Jackson Ude should resign from his hatchet job and apologize to Nigerians for his barbaric lies”, the statement added.

The group further knocked Alhaji Atiku for taking his desperation too far, urging him to accept defeat in a magnanimous way as Nigerians were clear in expressing their wishes at the polls by choosing President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and there’s nothing he can do about it more than withdrawing his case, recalling his attack dogs and submitting to the leadership of Mr. President.

“Atiku Abubakar holds the Guinness world record as someone who has contested and lost most elections in the world. His defeats are a loud rejection from Nigerians and he cannot change the fact. He should accept his defeats as a statesman that he’s supposed to be and stop heating the polity with baseless legal tussles and provocative press releases that lack substance and merit”, the statement added.

Even in trying times marked by the penchant for Nigeria’s enemies especially those in the opposition to truncate our democratic experience, Save Nigeria Movement urges all Nigerians “to disregard the lies circulating mostly on social media and embrace the facts on ground, trusting in the power of the judiciary to once again deliver a landmark judgement based on facts and not emotions”.
