Foreign Affairs Minister, Yusuf Tuggar, addressed the controversy surrounding the Chicago State University certificate presented by President Bola Tinubu to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Minister Tuggar emphasized that dwelling on this matter is a futile endeavor. He urged Nigerians to direct their energy towards more pressing issues, such as finding solutions to the challenges and hardships faced by the populace.
Minister Tuggar’s advice underscores the importance of prioritizing national development and the well-being of citizens over engaging in fruitless debates about documentation. This statement encourages a collective focus on initiatives that can lead to tangible improvements in the lives of Nigerians.
“The economic challenges we are facing – we shouldn’t be wasting time about whether some certificate, whether t. is a ‘t’ missing or an ‘i’ hasn’t been dotted. That shouldn’t be our primary focus at the moment,” Mr Tuggar said Wednesday on Channels TV.
The foreign affairs minister added,
“T. is a tendency to always try to distract and detain people on such frivolous issues as opposed to facing the major issues of development. We don’t have time to waste on that.
“Nobody is wasting time about certificate qualification for somebody who has been a governor of a state, served two terms, and has been on the national stage as a politician.”
Mr Tuggar added, “You remember that (former) President Buhari had to go through the same thing, w. people were actually questioning whether he went to secondary school or not. Someone who had classmates was the captain; he was a head boy.
“The foreign leaders with whom we’ve been engaging and the international organizations clearly are disinterested in wasting time on such.”
