Available facts as presented by David Hudeyen VS National Passport of Republic of Guinea


1: the Passport was allegedly issued to Bola Ahmed Tinubu born 71 years ago in Lagos, contrary to what David Hudeyen have always claimed of Tinubu being from Iragbiji and 81 years old

2: All security features of an International Passport seem missing in the alleged Passport of Bola Ahmed Tinubu

3: Issuance of a Passport doesn't confere upon you automatic Nationality... Mandela and SouthAfrican Apathied heroes all got Nigerian Passport to travel around during the struggle

4: the only legal bases of nullification of citizenship is if place of birth where not Nigeria and to Nigerian parents then Section 28 holds in pursuant of section 137

1: Yet the fake David Hudeyen passport doesn't have common international security features like monogram and extra shadow picture

2: Tinubu was born in Nigeria and Nigerian parents and never for once denouced his citizen so no bases of forfeiture of Nationality and he is fully eligible to contest

For all his problems with lies that made a whole Oxford university to block him and withdraw links with him, it is case of forgery he wants to add to cyberbullying, criminal defamations and slander already piled up for him. smh.

Thank you OP for setting the record straight to anyone still in the dark. This was the law that made Nigeria to legitimately hold the terrorist group leaders from the North and SE. If you are a Nigerian by birth and parents, Nigerian law can be invoked against you even for crimes against Nigeria you commit outside Nigeria.

The passport rumour created by the low IQ idiot on exile is just for nuisance value.

1. Even if it were true, Tinubu has not violated any section of 137 (a) which is subject to Section 28 of the same CFRN 1999.

2. Even if Tinubu had actually violated (which he hasn't violated) 137(a) of the CFRN 1999 , the claim of dual citizenship was not included as a ground for disqualification by the opposition in their petition. The APC, Tinubu and INEC have already filed a reply to the petition of the opposition, a new issue cannot be raised at this point in the tribunal.

3. Even if the opposition had pleaded disqualification based on dual citizenship in their petition (which they did not), proving the allegation that Tinubu is a citizen of Guinea would not be done with a fraudulently edited passport picture specifically designed for blackmail.

I can go on and on. The allegation is only for nuisance value in order to take away public focus on Obi's religious war audio and his detention in the United Kingdom.

In addition. Even the signature on the fake passport is fake.

Obidients would have fired emails to the Guinean consulate or border agency to validate the authenticity. Since they haven't posted such letter of authenticity, then it's likely a fake passport.


After the 29th of May, Obidients camp will rest.

I'm not even bothered about the section quotes but surprised how the man was able to bribe over 90% of highneck officials nationwide to rig the election in his favour.
Even up till the eve and morning of the election, most of us woke up still thinking BVAS was the answer to a free and fair election until the druggie changed the status quo.

Are you attesting to the fact that he has dual citizenship?

Crux of the matter is not about disqualification, no. It's actually about Perjury, which should normally attract jail term.

In order to become a citizen of a country, you usually have to pledge allegiance to that country. Consequently, being a dual citizen could be enough to disqualify a person from the office of President.

I know this is a lame attempt to contradict the dual citizenship story but I don't care if your drug baron principal is a dual citizen or not. What I know is that Tinubu, whose life is full of lies, must return the mandate whether he likes it or not.
The people revealing all these secrets are people close to him, people who don't like him.

No matter how far a lie travels, the truth will surely catch up with it. Tinubu's (Amoda) life is filled with so many lies but they're catching up with him.

Like I have always said on this forum, Amoda won't be President. Just watch and see what happens.

Moh247 is just using same template of constitution cancel constitution as seen in APC defense on the FCT status. The two sections of the constitution he just quoted nor even relate.

This passport issue does not need an election tribunal. Neither does the criminal indictment issue. LP just presented the latter, based on the opportunity of the Tribunal.
