Save the Country from International embarrassment of identity crisis; Peter Obi advices President Tinibu.


Mr Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate, is currently holding a World Press Conference in Abuja.

The Labour Party Presidential candidate, has called on President Bola Tinubu to re-introduce himself to Nigerians, as well as reveal the schools he attended, the state of his NYSC certificate, and save the country from what he calls “an international embarrassment of identity crisis”

He narrated this in light of what happened recently where a US court ordered the Chicago State University (CSU) to release the President’s academic records at the request of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday, Obi told President Tinubu to again, let Nigerians know the schools he attended, the status of his NYSC, if he participated in the one-year National Youth Service Corps scheme.

He also asked him to clarify if he indeed changed his name at any point in time and save the country from what he called an international embarrassment of identity crisis.

The former Anambra State governor maintained that having occupied the highest political office in the country, President Tinubu no longer has a right to any privacy regarding his identity.

The former Vice President had requested the release of President Tinubu’s certificate from the Chicago State University over the suspicion that the certificate the former Lagos State governor submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) may not be authentic.

During a press conference last week after the President’s academic records have been released to him, Atiku who is challenging Tinubu’s election, called on Obi, Rabiu Kwankwaso, and other Nigerians to join his quest for “justice” over the matter.

Atiku also vowed not to stop on the issue as he said he would continue to seek justice over the matter.

Mr Peter Obi and President Tinibu.
