Atiku Drags BBC To Court Over Report On Tinubu’s Certificate

Phrank Shaibu, an Extraordinary Collaborator on Open Correspondence to the Official Competitor of the People groups Leftist faction (PDP) in the 2023 general races, Atiku Abubakar, has said that they have requested of the BBC over a report on Tinubu’s declaration.

In a report named “Bola Tinubu confirmation: No proof Nigeria’s leader produced school record”, BBC dissected the discussion encompassing the declaration President Bola Ahmed Tinubu submitted to the Free Public Discretionary Commission (INEC), saying there is no proof that the president fashioned the testament.

In any case, during a meeting on Channels television’s Governmental issues Today, Shaibu said the matter had been taken up with the BBC top administration.

“When they said a report by the BBC, I laughed at the level of pedestrianism. The three young people who wrote that report are not even in the employment of the BBC. They are just like a fact-checking team. Let me take one of the authors of that report, Olaronke Alo. As of 2019, he was a reporter and presenter at TVC owned by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“We don’t need the services of a clairvoyant to know how the stories were put together. The first paragraph will tell you they got the true certified copy of the position from Frank Shaibu. One of the reporters asked me for it and I sent it to her.

“The same report claims that when they tried to reach the Atiku media team, we did not respond. This we have taken up with the top management and we have written a petition to the BBC because they allowed their platform to be used for a hatched job like this.”
