Senator Kashim Shettima, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate’s running partner, was embarrassed on Thursday when the people of Imo State walked out on him as he was addressing stakeholders at a town hall meeting in the state.
On Thursday, Shettima and his principal, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, came in Owerri, the capital of Imo State, for a town hall meeting with stakeholders.
Party faithful, businessmen and women, traders had trooped into the venue of the town hall meeting as early as 8am.
But in what triggered the intervention of security officials who were called to man the gate of the venue, a rowdy session occurred when people started walking out of the event centre when Shettima mounted the podium.

On social media, reactions trailed the video with many sharing mixed views.

@Jambe: “This is embarassing, I am sorry for Shettima.”
The development came hours after an investigation into the Chicago State University certificate submitted by Shettima’s principal, Tinubu, to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, showed that it was downloaded from a social media platform, Pinterest.
On Twitter David Hundeyin, an investigative journalist, who carried out the investigation wrote on the micro-blogging platform saying: “So it has really come to this in Nigeria? The ruling party’s candidate respects us so little that he submits an online certificate forgery template to INEC? This is what and where we are in 2022? This is it? We’re really that useless and unrated?”
@StrongTruth wrote: “This man submitted fake Chicago certificate to INEC, they went to get fake certificate from Pinterest, this is Tinubu fake certificate he submitted to INEC, this man should be disqualified and arrested, APC does not have any candidate for 2023 election.”
In the same vein, an Abuja-based lawyer identified as Barrister Mike filed charges bordering on perjury and document falsification against Tinubu.
The development was made known by David Hundeyin during an interview on Arise TV on Tuesday.
On social media, critics of Mr Tinubu called for the APC presidential candidate’s disqualification from the 2023 general election in reaction to Hundeyin’s report.
Meanwhile, Tinubu has continued to trend recently for negative reasons.
Sadly for him, a United States company, Deloitte, where he claimed that he made $1.8 million from salaries and bonuses while working a consultancy job, denied employing him.
He wrote: “Bola Ahmed Tinubu has claimed that he made $1.8 million from salaries and bonuses while working a consultancy job at Deloitte USA.
“So we subpoenaed Deloitte USA to provide evidence of Tinubu’s employment and staff payment records, and this is what came back.”
