A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Olisa Agbakoba on Monday said lawyers are heating up Nigeria with their comments on the Chicago State University records controversy of President Bola Tinubu.
In the last few days, there have been different views on the academic records of President Tinubu.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar who had requested the credentials had claimed that Tinubu forged the certificate he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
An allegation which has been denied by the presidency and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Agbakoba in a statement titled ‘this madness of Chicago State University must stop now!!!’ charged lawyers to keep their opinions and leave the Supreme Court to judge.
The statement reads, “The cacophony of discordant voices on Tinubu/Atiku over the certificate matter is completely out of hand. This utter nonsense from armchair lawyers is heating up Nigeria dangerously.
“Please can we keep our opinions and views to ourselves awaiting a decision of the Supreme Court.
“Am so ashamed to see Lawyers on Television arguing one way or the other on the merits or demerits of the Chicago State University matter.
“This is most unhelpful! I call out all media that tolerate this nonsense of adjudicating the CSU matter on TV and Newspapers.
“I urge the President of the Nigerian Bar Association to call out lawyers that breach rules of ethics by turning the media into a Court of Law.
Can we please stop heating up our country!!! Let us allow the Supreme Court of Nigeria to make a judicial pronouncement which is binding on us all!!!! This public nonsense must stop.”
