Fashola Speaks On Tinubu’s Alleged Dual Citizenship (Video) by Naijalarry: 9:04am On Apr 17, 2023

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwaEJRGXyks

Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola has said the constitution of Nigeria allows an individual to have a dual citizenship.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that according to Fashola, the Nigerian constitution does not make a political office aspirant disentitled when such person is a dual citizen.

Recall that reports emerged over the weekend and alleged that the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, owned a Guinea Conakry passport.

The revelation sent internet users into a frenzy over how the new leader of Africa’s largest economy allegedly lied to the nation’s electoral commission while under oath.

But reacting while speaking on Sunday night during an interview with Channels TV, Fashola who has been a longtime ally of Tinubu, said: “I know he carries a Nigerian passport; I don’t know about dual citizenship.

“I know he resided abroad when he went on exile, I don’t know if they gave me American citizenship. What has that got to do with the result of the election?”


He added: [b@?“The last time I checked. I think that Nigeria’s constitution allows you to have a dual citizenship.

“I will check. But I doubt that the Nigerian constitution makes you disentitled if you have dual citizenship, because the constitution allows you to have dual citizenship.”[/b]

Simple question. Does tinubu actually have dual citizenship?
Fashola starts talking off point and yarning dust on national tv.
I dont blame mr fash. Tinubu is a huge burden

There is no single credibility to the name BOLA AHMED TINUBU.
His name is fake
His age is fake.
Certificate is fake
Nationality is fake
Source of wealth is fake
Mandate is fake
Nothing credible. All fake and lies.

All focus on the court/ tribunal. Tinubu will not be president. The desperation of a man cannot be used to destroy over 200m people. Nigeria must be rescued.

I think the same constitution he is referring to is very explicit on the issue of dual citizenship on whoever aspires to become president

Wow! Coming from a SAN: “I will check. But I doubt that the Nigerian constitution makes you disentitled if you have dual citizenship, because the constitution allows you to have dual citizenship” All I can say is that he is only trying to dodge the question

The fact that Fashola is celebrated by agbadorians as intelligent..is a slap to their claim of being sophisticated.

Fashola is Keyamo Version 2.0

Both are daft and don't deserve to be called SANs..

Just imagine who Agbado supporters call educated?

Spits..

Fashola didn't answer the question because you've got to provide proven facts first, not trash! Fashola is a legal practitioner who knows this! As a matter of fact, he also pointed out other propaganda trash that have been circulating..

Just as Fashola stated, dual citizenship doesn't stop anyone from their elected position. The so called dual citizenship was even issued recently and has expired. So, how is it a problem? Obi recently had Dallas citizenship which hasn't even expired, did that stop him from contesting? Much ado about nothing.

Anyway, social media needs to be restricted like South Korea and Japanese do. Writing trash in the name of Cloutshasing shouldn't be a career. This is for David hundeyin and his ilks. In saner clime, such people would find themselves in prison! Same David hundeyin was sent out of Oxford university for fraud! That's a sane clime.

Some talentless people would just come on social media to write trash for clout chasing.. In a sane clime, such people would found their useless ass in prison! Imagine the nonsensical social media craziness these days.

Anyone without a certified journalism degree, a member of nuj society and with registered media house has no business writing gibberish! Even at that, you have to come correct, not writing trash! Lots of things need to be in place TBH. Even our legislators who don't have law degrees, Bar exam excellence and experience as a legal practitioners have no business as legislators! Worse is some of these legislators don't even have careers at all. Politics shouldn't be a career! Neither is clout chasing!

Fashola does well if it is about finding hidden cameras. If we are to go by Fashola's argument, we can as well bring back to life, the likes of Anini, Oyenusi and make them president and vice respectively. We can as well have Hushpuppi, Evans, etc come back and become ministers according to Fashola

Simple question.
See as fashola is talking off point and yarning dust on national tv.

Just because Fashola and Tinubu are political allies doesn't mean he will know everything about Tinubu.

You guys are so desperate looking for things to disqualify Tinubu lol, I thought the Drug case is enough to disqualify him you guys sound so sure but after your propagandists figured out it is going to be a futile endeavor they have to figure out another propaganda to keep the hope and unrealistic dream alive.
