BREAKING: NADECO asks President Tinubu to resign over certificate controversy

A pro-democracy group, National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) has called on President Bola Tinubu to resign over allegations surrounding certificate forgery at Chicago State University (CSU) and other alleged fraud issues.

The Executive Director of the organisation in the USA, Lloyd Ukwu, made the call in a statement on Friday.

He noted that the office of the president of Nigeria required utmost integrity and adherence to the rule of law.

His words:

“The allegations of forgery, if proven true, not only cast a shadow over the presidency but also undermine the credibility of Nigeria on the international stage.

“You would all recall that NADECO was the first to call for the resignation of Bola Ahmed Tinubu due to his Chicago State University certificate forgery. And today, we are reiterating this call.

“NADECO, being a prominent voice for democracy, transparency, and accountability in Nigeria, is deeply concerned about recent allegations regarding the authenticity of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s academic credentials.

“In light of the evidence pointing towards forgery of a certificate from Chicago State University, NADECO calls upon President Tinubu to resign from his position as the president of the most populous black country in the world.

“Forgery is a serious offence both in the United States and Nigeria, carrying severe legal consequences. According to U.S. law, the penalty for forgery can include imprisonment and fines.

“In Nigeria, forgery is a criminal offence under various sections of the Criminal Code and Penal Code, with potential penalties ranging from imprisonment to fines, depending on the circumstances.

“NADECO believes that holding a position of such immense responsibility as the President of Nigeria requires the utmost integrity and adherence to the rule of law.

“The allegations of forgery, if proven true, not only cast a shadow over the presidency but also undermine the credibility of Nigeria on the international stage. Such actions risk bringing international embarrassment to our great nation.

“We urge President Tinubu to step down voluntarily in the interest of preserving the integrity of the presidency and the nation.”

The group said Tinubu was already distracted, leading the country to “international embarrassment.”
