LE DIPLOMATE BOLA TINUBU
On his INEC EC9 Form, Bola Tinubu checked “No” in response to the question, “Have you voluntarily acquired citizenship of any other country?” Under oath and at risk of penalty of perjury, Bola Tinubu swore that he had neither been a citizen of another country nor held a passport of another nation.
As we’ve all come to expect, Bola Tinubu deliberately and intentionally lied to the Nigerian electorate. In a blatant act of deception, the man who wants to become the next president of Nigeria hid the fact that he is a Guinean citizen who holds a Guinean diplomatic passport.
For the benefit of those who may not know, diplomatic passports are issued to government diplomats and consuls stationed abroad. Diplomats represent and further the interests and policies of their countries while serving overseas.
In essence, Bola Tinubu is a Guinean diplomat stationed in Nigeria. As a high-ranking officer of the Guinean diplomatic corps, Tinubu’s duties are to serve the interests of the Republic of Guinea. His allegiance is to Guinea, the country in which he serves as a foreign service officer.
Next time you run into the Liar of Bourdillon, make sure you try out your fluency in the French language with him. Being a Guinean diplomat, the special envoy speaks French like a true son of Guinea.
If, unlike me, you don’t parlez pas français, I suggest you start with the easy one: “Bonjour monsieur le diplomate Bala Blu.”
