In recent times Nigerians in some parts of world have taken to the streets with placards to show their displeasure over the certificate forgery saga of the president.
At the Nigeria’s High Commission office, some Nigerian carried placards with different inscriptions including: Tinubu is not Nigeria’s president, Nigerian laws prohibit certificate forgery and many others. This is contained in the post by post by Dr. Bankole A. @BankolePh in his post on X he stated: We reject Tinubu. He does not represent who we are.
In a separate post he said: Arakunrin Dele, I hope your life is full of joy & abundance in Nigeria. Oh, by the way way, we are all very comfortable here in Canada. We just want you all to be comfortable too in Nigeria. Crooked Tinubu will only make your life miserable. #TinubuMustGo
In United Kingdom, it is the same protest. Young people took to the street questioning the integrity of BBC in regards to Tinubu certificate forgery. In one of the placards it reads: The BBC supports certificate forgery.
These protests are coming from the petition of the former vice president of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar where he has claimed that President Tinubu never attended the schools he claimed he did, and also from BBC’s claims that Tinubu has no certificate forgery issues, which Obi, Atiku have protested.
Nigerians are claiming that President Tinubu’s certificate forgery has painted a bad image of the country outside.
