APC youth leader plead with Atiku to withdraw suit against Tinubu in US court

Youth leader from the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hyde Kalu has appealed to Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to withdraw the lawsuit he filed against President Bola Tinubu in the United States.

In the suit, Atiku requested a US district court to compel Chicago State University, where Tinubu studied, to release the President’s academic records.

Kalu, in a statement on Monday, urged Atiku to let the Nigerian judiciary handle any disputes arising from the 2023 presidential election.

He emphasized that the legal conflict in the US is causing Nigeria to be perceived negatively by other nations, which is bringing embarrassment to the country.

Kalu humbly requested Atiku to consider the reputation of Nigeria and avoid further embarrassment by discontinuing the lawsuit.

The statement read, “Atiku is a statesman, and it is not in contention that he has the love of Nigeria at heart.

“I am sure that no Nigerian is happy with the way our country has been subjected to ridicule over the court ruling in the United States

“For the love of this country and to spare Nigerians the shame of how this process may end, it is important that we plead with Atiku to drop that case and not allow us wash our dirty linens in the public.

“We are all patriots, and I believe that we can have a decent way of handling this matter and save Nigerians the shame of this impending embarrassment.

“The election has come and gone, and a president has emerged. We are all humans, and that is why I am pleading with Atiku to discontinue the case in America for the sake of the country and in consideration of the friendship between him and President Tinubu.”
