The National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), USA, has called on America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to find out if Nigeria’s President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, had in the past made any donations to Chicago State University (CSU) directly or through third parties.

NADECO USA said this had become imperative in order to show if there were some monetary or other inducements made to CSU by Tinubu aimed at securing certain privileges from CSU.

“The world needs to know why President Bola A. Tinubu habitually goes to court to stop the release of his documents if he does not have anything to hide. Since Tinubu is now the President of Nigeria, it’s in the interest of Nigerian national security and global security for the world to make sure that the man who presides over the affairs of the biggest democracy and economy in Africa, is not a criminal, a certificate forger, or an identity thief,” the pro-democracy group demanded.

The investigation would also include whether the President had in the past made any donations to Chicago State University (CSU) directly or through third parties, to enable the world know if there were some monetary or other inducements made to CSU by Tinubu aimed at securing certain privileges from CSU.

The group in a statement signed by the Executive Director, Lloyd Ukwu, and Publicity Secretary, Comrade David Adenekan, said: “NADECO would also like the FBI and the Social Security Administration to determine how a Social Security number belonging to another person began to be used by Mr. Tinubu.

“The issue is, whether it is a matter of identity theft or, was the original owner of the number aware that her Social Security number was being used by another person. If SS#: 231-06-0595 is not President Tinubu’s, what is his true Social Security number and under what name is it under?

“Who actually owns the Social Security number, 231-06-0595, written on the transcripts that the Chicago State University registrar used as an exhibit that was attached to the deposition given under oath?

“We, as citizens of Nigeria from all over the world, are asking and requesting the United States University Accreditation Body and Chicago State University Board of Trustee to look into this matter in order to clear the good reputation of Chicago State University (CSU).

“NADECO USA is committed to the struggle to save Nigeria from corrupt and bad leaders. We therefore seek your cooperation to help Nigeria do a thorough and complete background check on Mr. Bola A. Tinubu, an enigma that has consistently fought to hide his true identity.

“Nigeria as the most populous black country in the world must be handled with care as the impact of a failed Nigerian state or a Nigeria where criminality is institutionalised will be devastating to the world, especially if Nigerians start emigrating to Europe, America and other parts of the developed world.

“As American voters and firm believers in democracy, we appeal to our elected officials to take this issue serious to protect democracy in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.”

In addition to the statement, NADECO USA on Monday morning (Chicago, US Time) addressed a hybrid World Press Conference at the famous Chicago City Hall, where it vowed to physically go to the FBI Head Office as well as that of the Social Security Administration, among others, to deliver the communique.

The group said that henceforth, Nigerian-American voters would be looking at candidates’ records and responses to Nigerian issues before casting its votes.

“We’re no longer going to be voting ‘one size fits all’ type of voting. Candidates must earn our votes before they get them. NADECO USA recalls that on February 25, 2023, Nigeria held a Presidential election that was fraught with several irregularities. The obvious flaws that were clearly and roundly condemned by local and international observers, there were so many procedural issues.

“Pre-eminent among them is the question of the University Diploma that was submitted to the electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), by the then candidate of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who now sits as the president of Nigeria.

“Chicago State University (CSU) in response to a deposition query stated that the diploma that Tinubu submitted to INEC was not issued by them and at the same time, CSU alleged that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu actually graduated from the school and presented a transcript of results purporting to be that of President Bola A. Tinubu. Who issued the diploma and where Mr. Tinubu obtainedbthe diploma from?

“Why did CSU not issue a diploma certificate to a student the school claimed graduated from CSU? Could Chicago State University have issued a Certificate to a student who has not met or satisfied the required credits for graduation? The Nigerian people would like an answer to the question above because the authenticity of the diploma has thrown Nigeria into a political upheaval ever since the conclusion of the election.

“Furthermore, the Nigerian people and NADECO USA would like clarifications on the following: Based on the pertinent portions of the transcripts obtained during the deposition of CSU Registrar, Mr. Welberg, the University authority admitted that, the Bola A. Tinubu with Social Security number: 231-06-0595, who attended CSU had completed a total of 105 credit hours and needed to have completed an additional 15 credit hours in order to graduate. Those classes included but were not limited to English 222 and Mathematics.

“So, did Bola A. Tinubu eventually complete those 15 credit hours, and if he did, when did he take them?

“Additionally, transcripts from South West College that enabled Mr. Tinubu to gain admission as a transfer student, bear a Social Security number different from Mr. Tinubu’s Social Security number.

“The transcripts further show that the gender of the applicant was female, whereas, Mr Tinubu who supposedly graduated from CSU, is a male.

“Again, the gender of the transferring student was stated as that of a female and therefore, it has become necessary to clarify why it is so, upon graduation, the gender has changed to male. Mr. Tinubu seems to be associated with two Social Security numbers.

“The Chicago State University (CSU) should explain why he has two Social Security numbers. As if that was not confusing enough, it has been confirmed that one of the Social Security numbers, 231-06-0595, originally issued in the State of Virginia is currently being used by someone else, a female.

We demanded that the BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF Chicago State University (CSU) should thoroughly investigate the bizarre circumstances regarding the issues raised above.

“That the UNITED STATES FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATIONS (FBI) should also initiate an investigation regarding the same concerns raised above. We would also like a clarification from the FBI about a letter making the rounds that purports to have been issued by the FBI in response to Nigeria’s Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) inquiry as to whether Mr. Tinubu attended Chicago State University (CSU). According to the letter from the FBI office, Mr. Tinubu did neither attend nor graduate from CSU.”

Peter Obi should be held responsible for anarchy arising from August 1 hunger protest – Presidency

Bayo Onanuga, a senior to President Bola Tinubu, has alleged that supporters Mr Peter Obi, former presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, are planning mayhem in Nigeria.

Onanuga claimed that the proposed nationwide protests were being planned by Obi’s supporters, whom he described as failed presidential candidate.

According to him, Obi should be held responsible for whatever crisis that would emanate from the action.

In a post on his X handle on Saturday, Onanuga said the proposed protest planners are also the same people who were instigated by the incarcerated IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu to launch the destructive ENDSARS protest in Nigeria in October 2020.

He wrote: “REVEALED: Peter Obi’s supporters are the people planning mayhem in Nigeria: Obi should be held responsible for anarchy

“Don’t be fooled: the malcontents planning to stage nationwide protests are supporters of Peter Obi, the failed presidential candidate of the Labour Party. And he should be held responsible for whatever crisis emanates from the action.

“The protest planners are also the same people who were instigated by IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu to launch the destructive ENDSARS protest in Nigeria in October 2020. ENDSARS began as a genuine protest by youths against the Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad, notorious for its high-handedness. IPOB members planning to extricate the South East region from Nigeria infiltrated the protest and hijacked it for their own agenda. Lagos still bears the scar of the malicious destruction by IPOB elements until today.

“Two years after ENDSARS, the IPOB and the gullible innocents joined the Labour Party in 2022 to support Peter Obi, a sympathiser of their cause.

They are the people spreading the hashtags ‘EndBadGovernance’, ‘Tinubu Must Go,’ and ‘Revolution2024’. They are not democrats but anarchists. They are attempting to call out our people via propaganda because their Messiah, Peter Obi, failed to win the Presidency in the 2023 election. As bad losers, they don’t have the patience to wait for another election in 2027; they would rather destabilise Nigeria by staging a civilian coup against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has started selling foreign exchange on a regular basis through Authorised Dealer Banks and licensed Bureaux De Change (BDCs) as a response to the current fluctuations in the foreign exchange market.

These fluctuations are primarily caused by the demand pressure coming from corporate entities and the seasonal increase typical during the summer period.

By implementing regular sales of foreign exchange, the CBN aims to stabilise the market and ensure smoother transactions for both businesses and individuals involved in foreign exchange activities.

Director, Financial Markets Department of the CBN Dr Omolara Omotunde Duke in a statement on Friday night assured the public of the bank’s commitment to address the demand pressure and stabilize the foreign exchange market.

Highlighting recent transactions, the CBN disclosed that it sold a total sum of US$106,500,000.00 to 29 authorized dealer banks on Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19, 2024.

These transactions took place within an exchange rate range of N1,498.00/US$1 to N1,530.00/US$1. Additionally, the CBN purchased US$9,500,000 (Nine Million and Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) from four authorized dealer banks at rates between N1,510.00/US$1 and N1,550.00/US$1. All these transactions are marked for settlement on July 19, 2024.

The Central Bank also stated its commitment to closely monitor compliance with existing trading rules and regulations by authorized dealer banks. This is seen as an effort to promote ethical conduct and ensure stability in the foreign exchange market.
