Alleged forgery: Why Atiku hates Tinubu so much – APC fires back

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed its indifference to the allegations made against President Bola Tinubu by former Vice President and the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The APC contends that Atiku holds a deep-seated animosity towards Tinubu due to his belief that Tinubu was responsible for his electoral defeats in 2007, 2015, 2019, and the most recent election.

During a press conference in Abuja, Atiku presented various allegations against Tinubu, citing documents obtained from Chicago State University.

In response, the APC, through its National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, dismissed Atiku’s claims as unsubstantiated and characterized his actions as a display of desperation in his quest for the presidency.

The party accused Atiku of attempting to generate public sentiment and unduly pressure the Supreme Court. They also criticized his public comments on a matter that is pending before the court for adjudication.

The APC emphasized that Atiku’s primary grievance, evident from his press conference, was his deep-seated animosity toward Tinubu, whom he holds responsible for his electoral setbacks over the years.

Regarding the certificate issue, the APC clarified that there was no evidence to suggest that the certificate President Bola Tinubu presented to INEC for his election was fake or forged. They regarded such insinuations as baseless and urged people to disregard them.

In conclusion, the APC expressed sympathy for Atiku’s prolonged pursuit of the presidency but condemned his actions and the negative image they believed he was projecting of Nigeria and the presidency on the international stage. They considered his recent activities in the United States as an attempt by a roundly rejected presidential aspirant to regain relevance.

The party also provided clarity on the deposition of Mr. Caleb Westberg, the Registrar of Chicago State University, stating that he affirmed President Bola Tinubu’s graduation with honors from the university and addressed other issues raised during his deposition. They saw Atiku’s use of this information as an instrument of mischief and blackmail, showing disregard for the Supreme Court.

The Forum of All Progressives Congress State Chairmen has expressed full support for the party’s national chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, by passing a vote of confidence in him.

A delegation comprising 37 state party chairmen asserted that there was an attempted coup to oust Ganduje from his position as APC National Chairman, but it was unsuccessful.

This declaration was made during a solidarity visit to the party’s secretariat in Abuja, where they reaffirmed their loyalty to Ganduje.

The acting chairman of the forum and Lagos APC chairman, Cornelius Ojelabi, stated that they stand firmly behind Ganduje and are prepared to defend him against any external threats.

“We want to assure you that you remain the leader of our party. The individuals who announced your removal were not recognized members of the party to begin with. We will not allow you to face the same embarrassment as former chairmen of the party.”

“What they attempted was akin to a coup, but their efforts have been thwarted. Our presence here signifies our unwavering support for you at all times,” he emphasized.
