Atiku Abubakar’s Team Petitions BBC Over Tinubu’s Certificate Report

Atiku’s Aide Reveals Petition to BBC

Phrank Shaibu, a Special Assistant on Public Communication to Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, disclosed that Atiku has officially lodged a petition with the BBC.

The complaint pertains to a BBC report examining the controversy surrounding Bola Tinubu’s submitted college certificate.

BBC’s Report on Tinubu’s Certificate

In the report titled “Bola Tinubu Diploma:

No Evidence Nigeria’s President Forged College Record,” the BBC delved into the intricacies of the controversy related to the certificate provided by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

BBC’s Assessment of the Certificate

The report from BBC stated that there is no evidence to suggest that President Tinubu forged his college certificate, addressing the key question at the heart of the certificate controversy.

Atiku’s Response to the Report

During an interview on Channels TV, Phrank Shaibu expressed his thoughts on the matter.

He brought to light his concerns about the report’s authors and their affiliations, suggesting that they lack the impartiality expected from a reputable news organization.

Authors of the BBC Report

Shaibu shed light on the background of the report’s authors. He pointed out that the individuals responsible for the report were not even employed by the BBC.

Instead, they were akin to a fact-checking team. As an example, he mentioned one of the authors, Olaronke Alo, who, as of 2019, was a reporter and presenter at TVC, a media outlet owned by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Challenges to the Report’s Credibility

Shaibu cast doubt on the report’s credibility, emphasizing how it seemed to be constructed and the potential bias stemming from the affiliations of its authors.

He also highlighted discrepancies regarding the report’s claims about responses from Atiku’s media team.

Petition to the BBC

In response to the concerns raised, Phrank Shaibu stated that they have taken the matter up with the top management at the BBC.

Furthermore, they have submitted a formal petition to the BBC, addressing the use of the BBC platform for what they perceive as a biased report.
