A lawyer to Atiku Abubakar, who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party at the 2023 election, Kalu Kalu, says the legal battle in the United States has revealed sufficient discoveries to upturn the ruling of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal at the Supreme Court.

Mr Kalu, during the press briefing held by Atiku on yesterday in Abuja, said the legal team discovered five major discrepancies in the academic records of President Bola Tinubu during the deposition of the Registrar of Chicago State University (CSU), Caleb Westberg.

The lawyer said the Atiku’s team was able to establish that Mr Tinubu committed forgery, has dual citizenship, and presented an NYSC certificate that has a different name from the one he submitted to INEC.

Atiku had requested the documents from CSU to back his allegation of certificate forgery against Mr Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February poll.

The allegation of forgery was one of those dismissed by the Presidential Election Petition Court in the suit Atiku filed to challenge the election of Mr Tinubu who was sworn in as president in May.

CSU Registrar, Mr Westberg, made a deposition at the court, giving further details on the documents that were released to Atiku’s legal team earlier.
