Certificate forgery: Court fixes Sep 7 to hear suit against Tinubu

A Federal High Court in Abuja has set September 7 for the hearing of a lawsuit seeking to bar Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, from running in the 2023 elections.

Four APC leaders who are the plaintiffs want the court to rule that Tinubu is ineligible to represent the party in the 2023 presidential election because he allegedly provided false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The plaintiffs alleged that Tinubu falsely swore to an affidavit in 1999 in which he claimed to have attended St. Paul Aroloya Children Home School, Ibadan, from 1958 to 1964, and Government College, Ibadan, from 1965 to 1968, and presented the same to INEC. The affidavit was 33 paragraphs long and was deposed to by one Ibiang Miko Ibiang.

“Hand dey shake, leg dey shake, baba wey no well he dey shout Emi Lokan,” which roughly translates to “With an unstable hand and leg, a man with a frail health is sounding off that it’s his turn to be Nigeria’s president,” was the chant of the group’s members in the one-minute video as they danced and chanted.

On June 3, 2022, during a meeting with party delegates in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Tinubu expressed frustration over the lack of support for his bid to win the party’s presidential nomination. It was at this time that the phrase “Emi Lokan” began to circulate throughout the country.
