Atiku lambasts Tinubu over attempt to block release of criminal investigation details

The Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate in the 2023 election, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has lambasted President Bola Tinubu over his fresh attempt to block the release of the details of his criminal investigation by American authorities.

Tinubu’s lawyers file motion to appear in FOIA lawsuit

Recall that Tinubu’s lawyers in the US filed motions to appear in an ongoing freedom of information action brought against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) where records that may help answer questions about Bola A. Tinubu’s real identity and decades-long endeavours are domiciled.

Atiku’s aide calls Tinubu’s attempt to hide his past “shameful”

Reacting to the development, however, Atiku’s Special Assistant on Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu said Tinubu’s constant attempts to hide details of his sordid past were unbecoming of a man ruling over 200 million people.

Shaibu calls on US authorities to release Tinubu’s criminal investigation files

Atiku’s aide called on US authorities to see themselves as the last hope of Nigerians since most Nigerian courts had blocked all attempts to expose Bola A. Tinubu.

Shaibu says Tinubu is a “corn-man” and Nigerians deserve to know the truth about their president

Shaibu said Tinubu was a “corn-man” who had been able to deceive Nigerians by keeping his past as a secret. He added that Nigerians deserve to know the truth about the man who is presiding over their lives.


The controversy over Tinubu’s past is likely to continue, with Atiku and his supporters calling for transparency and Tinubu’s lawyers trying to block the release of any further information.
