Anyone Strongly Doubting Bola Tinubu’s Credentials should go to Court – Farouk Aliyu

Farouk Aliyu has stated that those doubting the credentials of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is entitled to go to court.

The former House of Representatives member made the comment on Sunday during Channels Television Sunday Politics.

He said: “We have gone through this a very long time ago. Asiwaju Tinubu was governor in Lagos, a two-time governor. These issues have come up. What haven’t they said about Tinubu? What hasn’t he proved to the people? And look, that is the beauty of democracy,”

“If anybody feels strongly that our candidate has no qualification to be president, he is entitled to go to court and challenge that.”

Aliyu, who also spoke about the search for a running mate to the former Lagos State governor, said the decision lies with Tinubu. He stated that the APC is still consulting and reiterated that competence, not religion, will be the major determinant.

“So, if our party comes out with a Muslim candidate, so be it. We are going to make sure we win the election,” he maintained.

“And if in the wisdom of our candidate, he brings a Christian candidate, we are also going to make sure we win the election because, as I said before, it is not about the religion or where you come from. It is about competence.”

His remarks came hours after Tinubu said he is still in search of a running mate ahead of the general elections.
