Coalition mounts pressure on Nigeria president Bola Tinubu to resign

The National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) urges President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to quit over his controversial certificate from Chicago State University, and current court case in the US

The National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) has urged Nigeria President Bola Tinubu to resign detailing reasons in a letter released on 25 September.

NADECO is a defunct political party in Nigeria that was established in 1994. One of their first plan of action was during Nigeria’s 1993 election where they called on the military government of Sani Abacha to step down in favour of the winner,  M K O Abiola.

The group during its establishment consisted of many prominent politicians and senior military officers.

The political party recently drafted a letter to Tinubu titled, “TINUBU: Resign and save Nigeria from further embarrassment” that detailed the various trials of Nigeria and Tinubu’s contribution to that. Find the full letter below:

President Tinubu himself was a key pro-democracy activist in the 90s. He worked together with other Nigerian activists like Wole Soyinka, Olaokun Soyinka and Kayode Fayemi to establish Radio Kudirat in 1996.

Radio Kudirat exposed government secrets and challenged the authoritarian regime of Abacha. Nevertheless, Radio Kudirat went off the air on 1 January 1999, for its annual maintenance. It has not returned since then, and all its known operators have been occupied with political activities.

Tinubu was also associated with the  National Liberation (NALICON) which also worked in conjunction with NADECO. NALICON was established in London by Wole Soyinka.

Like many African countries, Nigeria suffers with the maintenance of democracy and good governance. Citizens are constantly dissatisfied with the government’s management of the country. Nigeria and other countries in the Sahel region have been faced with violent extremism from terrorism in recent years which has disrupted efforts to return to democracy.

According to data by Transparency International, Nigeria ranks 24/100 on the corruption perceptions index score(CPI), where the scale ranks 100 as very clean and 0 as highly corrupt. Additionally, conferring to this year’s global criminality index, Nigeria ranks 6th in the whole world an an increase in criminal markets and actors since 2021.

Prominent Nigerian artists such as Fela Kuti, Falz and Burna Boy have used their music as a form of activism to create awareness about these issues, not only in Nigeria but on the African continent.

As NADECO has released their concerns, President Tinubu has yet to respond to it.
