All Progressives Congress (APC) says the press conference held by Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last elections, was filled with “pitiful regurgitation of lies”. Abubakar on Thursday said Nigeria’s reputation is at stake with the controversy surrounding the Chicago State University’s certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) by President Bola Tinubu. In a statement by Felix Morka, national publicity secretary of APC, the ruling party said Atiku’s quest for the academic record of Tinubu has shown his deep animosity that Tinubu was responsible for his serial electoral loss since 2007.…

Atiku, the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 25 election, had requested the documents to back his allegation of forgery of CSU certificate against Tinubu. The allegation of forgery was one of those dismissed by the presidential election court in the suit Atiku filed…

All Progressives Congress on Tuesday chastised the Peoples Democratic Party presidential standard bearer, Atiku Abubakar, over his quest to obtain President Bola Tinubu’s academic records from the Chicago State University. National Publicity Director of the APC, Bala Ibrahim, attributed Atiku and the PDP’s action to what he called ‘post-election defeat disorder.’ He claimed Nigerians had rejected the opposition party following years of mismanagement and admonished the former vice president to quit politics. This is happening as the United States’ District Court for Northern Illinois received the former Lagos State governor’s certificates as ordered by Justice Nancy Maldonado. The court was…
