Comrade Timi Frank, a former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called on President Bola Tinubu to allow the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States of America to conduct their investigations without interference.
Frank’s statement comes after reports surfaced about Tinubu’s attempt to block the release of his records with the FBI and CIA, raising questions about his real identity and past endeavors.
Frank expressed his concern over why a public servant and the President of Nigeria would attempt to prevent the release of his records with US security agencies if he has nothing to hide. He criticized Tinubu’s move, suggesting that it confirms the existence of damaging records, possibly related to criminal activities, which Tinubu does not want the public to know. Frank urged Tinubu to resign if he indeed has a criminal background, emphasizing that Nigerians have the right to know their President’s true identity and background.
Frank also highlighted Tinubu’s previous attempts to block the release of his records, including his academic records from Chicago State University, which were eventually made public. He urged the American court not to succumb to Tinubu’s attempts to hide his past from Nigerians and called on US judges to act in the best interest of Nigerians rather than personal interests.
Additionally, Frank criticized Tinubu for using Nigerian taxpayers’ money to hire foreign lawyers to defend him in cases related to identity and perjury issues. He urged Tinubu to stop these practices and allow transparency in his personal history for the sake of the Nigerian people.
