A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to stop embarrassing Nigerians by his desperate bid to stop the release of his academic records from the Chicago State University (CSU).
Frank in a statement in Abuja wondered what Tinubu has got to hide that prompted him to hurriedly appeal the judgement of a US Magistrate Court that ordered CSU to release his academic records.
Tinubu, according to reports had pleaded before a United States judge to save him from suffering severe and irreparable damage by placing an emergency hold on a recent Court order for his university records to be released.
“If you know you have clean academic records why are you fighting to stop their being released?
“What ‘severe and irreparable harm’ will you suffer if the records are released?” Frank queried.
He insisted that due to Tinubu’s desperate acts in seeking to conceal his academic records and other legal issues surrounding his persona, most world leaders are now avoiding him and this has hampered his administration’s much publicized investments drive abroad.
He called on Nigerians to own the fight to ensure that the President has authentic academic records and not to leave the efforts to an individual due to potential political and diplomatic damage it can do to Nigeria if glossed over.
Frank said: “This fight should not be for Atiku Abubakar alone. Nigerians must rise up and demand to know the academic records of their President.
“Tinubu’s desperate attempt to buy time with his recent appeal is a huge embarrassment to Nigerians both at home and in diaspora. Why does the court ordered release of Tinubu’s academic records appear like a matter of life and death to the President?
He also called on the United States’ Government and its institutions to transparently adjudicate on this matter in the interest of Nigeria and not that of one man.
