Certificate: Allow Tinubu to breathe, Igbo leader tells opposition


The Deputy Apex leader of Ndigbo in Lagos APC, Sir Jude
Idimogu, on Friday appealed to opposition parties to allow President Bola
Tinubu breathe and concentrate on governance in the interest of the masses.


Idimogu, the immediate past two-term lawmaker, who
represented Oshodi-Isolo Constituency II in the Lagos State House of
Assembly,  made the appeal in an
interview with Newsmen in Lagos.


The former lawmaker, said that after the verdict of the 2023
Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, opposition parties and their
candidates needed to rally round the President in the interest of the nation.


According to him, politicians against the victory of Tinubu
at the Feb. 25 Presidential election and at the court must avoid actions
capable of dragging the country’s name in the mud.


The lawmaker, reacting to the certificate saga levelled
against President Tinubu by PDP’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku
Abubakar, described such allegation as politics taken too far and capable of
destroying the image of the country.


“All I want to tell good Nigerians is to understand that
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, did not and will never forge any certificate, and
whatever he submitted to INEC is clean and true.


“We want to appeal to Nigerians to calm down and not allow
themselves to be deceived by those dragging Nigeria’s name in the mud.


“We want the opposition to allow our President, who God gave
to us to breathe. Please allow him to breathe for the sake of the masses,”
Idimogu said.


Stating that the Chicago State University never said that
the certificate Tinubu submitted to INEC was fake or forged, the lawmaker said
that narratives by PDP was an embarrassment to the nation.


He added, ” They (opposition) should desist from trying to
tarnish the image of Nigeria and that of the President Bola Tinubu.”


According to him, Tinubu is a God-sent President to Nigeria
and the best the nation can ever have.

He said that the only thing Nigerians should do was to give
the President total and maximum support for the president to lead the nation
out of her challenges.


“There is nothing anyone can do right now because God has
ordained him to be President, and he emerged in spite of all visible hurdles.

“No matter what the detractors are doing, they cannot pull
Tinubu down because God and Nigerians are behind him and he is a man of grace.


“The opposition should note this and wait for another
election period.


“The matter of certificate is a pre-election matter and
cannot make any opposition presidential candidate come through the back door,”
Idimogu said.


The lawmaker described those behind Tinubu’s certificate
issues, as interlopers, who would not achieve anything in the journey they have
embarked upon.


“We know that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will overcome as
always and he has passed such hurdles several times,” he added.


NAN recalls that PDP’s Atiku on Thursday addressed a news
conference in Abuja, which focused on the validity and authenticity of President
Tinubu’s academic records from Chicago State University.


Atiku has vowed to appeal the tribunal ruling of Sept. 6,
which upheld the election of President Tinubu as the winner of the Feb. 25
Presidential election.
