A civil society group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), on Tuesday, joined the fray of controversies over the academic documents released by the Chicago State University on President Bola Tinubu, accusing the president of purported identity theft, and seeking his disqualification as winner of the concluded 2023 presidential election.

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) in a statement by the National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, on Tuesday, following the revelation by NewsBand Newspaper, that the academic record from South-West College which President Tinubu used in gaining admission into Chicago State University (CSU) belongs to a woman, “called on the Supreme Court of Nigeria to disqualify President Bola Ahmed Tinubu from the high office of the President of Nigeria or compel him to resign forthwith over his alleged identity theft and certificate forgery.”

HURIWA noted: according to the newspaper, “the documents released by CSU to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who is challenging Tinubu’s victory in the February 25 presidential election in a US court, show that Tinubu was enrolled as a female student with the name Bola Adekunle Tinubu.”

HURIWA described the report as a “shocking and shameful case of identity theft and certificate forgery,” which, the group said, “has exposed Tinubu as a fraud and a liar who has deceived Nigerians for decades”.

The group was of the view that Tinubu has no moral or legal right to continue to occupy the highest office in the land, having violated the constitution and the electoral laws of Nigeria.

HURIWA went into certain belated issues, accusing Tinubu of being involved in other alleged ‘criminal activities’ such as drug trafficking and money laundering, citing some documents purportedly obtained from the US authorities that linked him to these offences.

The group urged the Supreme Court of Nigeria not to act like Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus Christ by allowing this malfeasance to be sustained.

The group said that the apex court has a duty to uphold justice and protect the integrity of the electoral process and the democratic values of Nigeria.

HURIWA warned that if Tinubu is not disqualified or made to resign, Nigerians will lose faith in their leaders and institutions, and may resort to civil disobedience and mass protests to demand accountability.

HURIWA also called on Nigerians to rise up and reject Tinubu as their president, saying that he is a potential embarrassment and danger to Nigeria and its international reputation.
