Federal Government Navigates Multiple National Issues

by Oluwatosin Racheal Alabi

Tinubu’s Certificate Controversy
The Federal Republic of Nigeria is on edge as the Supreme Court decides the authenticity of President Bola Tinubu’s Chicago State University certificate. Dr. Pogu Bitrus, leading the Middle Belt Forum, asserts that any actions should align with the constitution. This comes in light of claims about submitting potentially forged documents to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Allegations Emerge
Recently, Atiku Abubakar claimed in a press conference that President Tinubu might have submitted a false certificate for the 2023 elections. Dr. Bitrus highlighted the constitution’s paramount role in determining the outcome. He stated, “If the constitution finds fault, the law will intervene.”

Addressing Economic Strains
In an attempt to soften the blow of the fuel subsidy removal’s economic aftermath, the government plans to grant N25,000 monthly to vulnerable pensioners. However, Dr. Bitrus believes the unplanned subsidy removal has had widespread ripple effects on the economy.

Surge in Cooking Gas Prices
Another area of concern is the skyrocketing prices of cooking gas. Bitrus voiced his concern, noting the price hike’s timing was poor and that it’s affecting ordinary citizens.

Medical Concerns and Achievements
Reports suggest Nigerian foreign-trained doctors underperformed in the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria exams. This highlights Nigeria’s high medical training standards. However, Dr. Bitrus warns of a potential brain drain, as other countries might now target Nigerian doctors.

Ethical Debates Surface
A new trend sees women selling their ova. This has prompted the House of Representatives to inspect the activities of Nigeria’s fertility clinics. Labeling it an “ethical issue,” Dr. Bitrus calls for professionals to evaluate the situation thoroughly.

A Conclusion on Current Affairs
Multiple challenges and allegations currently confront the Federal Government. The nation anticipates resolutions on these legal, ethical, and socio-economic matters.
