If this was the document this guy presented as his naturalization certificate, I have few thoughts on it:The naturalization document the guy presented is disfigured and tampered with. You can see the misalignment of written in text versus the original stock text of the certificate. (Image 2) The last name is misspelled in the second space and the misalignment with the stock text is obvious. Again, I want to PUBLICLY call on President Weah to withdraw this nomination and have this guy investigated. There is no reason for this Nigerian to create this amount of dissension among your people Mr. President.
