Obi Implores Tinubu To Reveal His Real Identity

To dispel any lingering questions about himself, his background, and his professional aspirations, Peter Obi has taken up the challenge and urged President Bola Tinubu to personally provide an explanation regarding his genuine identity.

Speaking at a global press conference in Abuja, Obi claimed that problems stemming from the Chicago court deposition and claims of forgery have now made things worse for many Nigerians as well as for Nigeria as a nation in the international community.

He therefore advised Tinubu to address any concerns directly rather than delegating them to proxies or spokespeople.

Obi who drew questions following the press conference mentioned the former Central Bank Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, and Governor Chukwuma Soludo among others as his classmates.

He thus asked Tinubu to do likewise and save Nigeria and Nigerians from the ridicule he said had been thrown out about his identity.

Obi said: “Uninformed outsiders now see every Nigerian as a fraudster, certificate forger, or identity thief.

“The controversy is unnecessary just as the implicit global embarrassment could have been avoided. In my opinion, Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu should have saved the nation and himself from this protracted embarrassment and undue anxiety. Even this late in the day, however, Chief Ahmed Bola Tinubu still owes the nation and the world a simple obligation only he can discharge.

“I therefore respectfully and humbly call on him to immediately personally mount the rostrum of his present high office to perform a simple task of once and for all times; he should reintroduce himself to the nation he governs and to the world for the avoidance of further doubts.

“He should let the world know his name, his nationality, his place of birth, his parentage, the primary and secondary schools he attended with dates as well as the actual universities he attended and the certificates he obtained.

“He should indicate clearly where and when he did his national youth service. In addition, if at any time he had a change of name, he should say clearly the circumstances. That itself is no crime.

“This is a simple task that will take only a few minutes. It requires no affidavit, spokespersons, or surrogates. The task is one that only Bola Ahmed Tinubu himself through a direct personal statement can perform. He must perform this task urgently in order to lay to rest the many lingering doubts and speculations about his true identity.”
