Atiku Abubakar’s ex-presidential campaign spokesman, Daniel Bwala has stated that the Guinean government implicated Bola Tinubu by admitting they issued him a diplomatic passport.
This is as the controversy surrounding the Guinean passport of Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Tinubu continues.
He pointed out that Tinubu became a Guinean citizen by accepting the country’s diplomatic passport.
Tweeting, he said Tinubu swore allegiance to Guinea by accepting the passport.
“Guinean govt. further implicated him without knowing by saying the passport issued to him was a diplomatic one.
“Can a diplomatic passport be issued to a non-citizen? No. Only citizens who are either govt. officials or designated to attend a program abroad can get a diplomatic pp.
“So, in a nutshell, by accepting the diplomatic passport, he swore allegiance to the government and the flag of Guinea, and hence he is a citizen of Guinea.
“But in his INEC form under oath he ticked that he doesn’t have a dual citizenship. You make the legal conclusion,” he tweeted.
