In a recent interview on Channels TV Sunrise Daily, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar, emphasized the need to prioritize national development over the ongoing certificate controversy surrounding President Bola Tinubu. Tuggar dismissed the issue as a distraction and highlighted the international community’s disinterest in it. He urged Nigerians to shift their focus to the country’s economic challenges.

His words: “There 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.”

“You remember that (former) President Buhari had to go through the same thing, where 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.

The controversy arose after the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, requested President Tinubu’s academic records from Chicago State University (CSU) in the United States, leading to their release following a US court order.
