The petition was initiated in the late hours of Tuesday, 19th July 2022 by a Nigerian, Ade Lani.
Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) may be in for serious trouble after Nigerians started a petition for a criminal review of his alleged drug dealings in the United States.
A Nigerian, Ade Lani, initiated the petition on Tuesday, 19th July 2022, against the APC presidential candidate.
Lani in his petition
on change.org called for the criminal review of Tinubu’s alleged drug dealings in the US, saying that the criminal review will enable Nigerians to know who their potential president is in character and history.
He also stated that the review would help Nigerians to be able to make the right decision on who they place their future and leadership of the country in his hands.
A quick check by this news platform showed that the petition had hit 19,000 as of 11:10am on Wednesday, 20th July.
The petition comes after a recent report by West Africa Weekly
that linked the former Governor of Lagos State to a drug business in Chicago ahead of his presidential aspiration.
The history of Tinubu became easy to track following his journey to Chicago in 1975, after claiming to be in exile.
The former Governor upon his arrival in Chicago first spent 2 years gaining an Associate degree at Richard J. Daley College.
He thereafter proceeded to Chicago State University where he studied Accounting, completing his Bachelor’s degree in 1979.
Tinubu, in an interview with The News, claimed that he got a job with Deloitte & Touche, where he supposedly received an $850,000 bonus as a result of his work on a single onsite engagement at the Saudi state-owned oil firm.
West Africa Weekly, however, disclosed that a document, which was obtained from the US District Court of the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division, allegedly revealed damning information about Tinubu.
contains a comprehensive federal indictment and associated case files from July 1993 containing clear and incontrovertible evidence that Tinubu was allegedly involved in laundering proceeds of heroin trafficking for a Nigerian drug ring in Chicago.
