Tinubu in Hot Water: Chicago University, NYSC Certificates Admitted in Tribunal Court Hearing

The Presidential Election Petitions Court admitted certified copies of academic and work records of President Bola Tinubu, tendered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate Atiku Abubakar. These documents included a B.Sc. certificate from Chicago State University, an NYSC Discharge Certificate, and a Mobil Nigeria Oil Plc certificate of service, all provided by the opposition party and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar. The PDP’s witness, Mike Enahoro Ebah Esq, presented the documents, noting that they were supposedly acquired by Tinubu under the name ‘Bola Adekunle Tinubu.’ The witness also presented EC13 and EC9 nomination forms and corresponding letters sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

INEC’s lawyer and the lawyers representing Tinubu and the All Progressive Congress (APC) raised objections to the admissibility of these documents. The witness tendered different documents under cross-examination as well:

  1. Certified true copies of form EC9(Nomination letter of Tinubu)
  2. Receipt of payment for certification
  3. Witness application letter, requesting for the documents
  4. INEC’s Letter of response
  5. Certificate from Chicago university belonging to the 2nd respondent (Tinubu)
  6. NYSC discharge certificate belonging to the 2nd respondent, with the name Tinubu Bola Adekunle
  7. Certificate of service from Mobile Oil Nigeria PLC
  8. Party Membership card

The PDP further presented certified true copies of forms EC8As from 25 LGA’s in Delta state, 13 LGA’s in Ebonyi state, 18 LGA’s in Edo state, 17 LGA’s in Enugu state, 27 LGA’s in Imo state, and 21 LGA’s in Kogi state. In cross-examination by counsel to INEC, Abubakar Mahmoud, the witness disclosed that he has not spent much money trying to bring the truth to Nigerians.

“When asked if he was displeased that his candidate lost, the witness answered in the affirmative. The court then after, rose to reconvene later for further cross-examination.”

The court rose and will reconvene later for further cross-examination.
