The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential screening committee has been asked to disqualify the party’s national leader, Bola Tinubu, over “questionable educational qualifications”.

In a letter dated May 17th, 2022, one Sagir Mai Iyali, who identified himself as an APC member from Kano state, asked the party to disqualify Tinubu over alleged false documents the former Lagos state governor tendered to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in 1998.

John Oyegun, a former APC national chairman, is in charge of the screening committee, and the exercise is ongoing at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja. The Cable reports that Iyali said although Tinubu is above the required age to contest the office of president, his age is not known, adding that obscurity surrounding the presidential hopeful could jeopardize the party’s chances at the polls.
