What Fashola Said About Tinubu Dual Citizenship (Video)



What Fashola Said About Tinubu Dual Citizenship (Video)

Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde
Fashola has said the constitution of Nigeria
allows an individual to have a dual citizenship.

Fashola, the Nigerian constitution does not make a political office aspirant disentitled when such person is a dual citizen.


Recall that reports emerged over the weekend
and alleged that the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, owned a Guinea Conakry passport.

The revelation sent internet users into a frenzy over how the new leader of Africa’s largest economy allegedly lied to the nation’s electoral commission while under oath.

But reacting while speaking on Sunday night
during an interview with Channels TV, Fashola
who has been a longtime loyalist to Tinubu, said:”I know he carries a Nigerian passport; I don’t know about dual citizenship.


“I know he resided abroad when he went on
exile, I don’t know if they gave me American
citizenship. What has that got to do with the
result of the election?”

He added: “The last time I checked. I think
that Nigeria’s constitution allows you to have a
dual citizenship

“I will check, But I doubt that the Nigerian
constitution makes you disentitled if you have
dual citizenship, because the constitution allows
you to have dual citizenship.”
