Former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, has once again raised questions about the ongoing dispute regarding President Bola Tinubu’s academic history.
Atiku is currently seeking legal intervention in a United States court to prompt Chicago State University to address the inconsistencies in the certificates issued to President Tinubu. Atiku highlights that without a clear clarification, it remains a challenge, if not impossible, for the public to comprehend the educational journey of the former Governor of Lagos State.
In a recent post on his verified Twitter account, @atiku, Atiku stated,“I woke up this morning wondering how we got to this cul de sac. In 1999, @officialABAT (Bola Ahmed Tinubu) claimed he attended St John’s Primary School, Aroloya, Lagos, before proceeding to Children Home School in Ibadan.”
“He indicated that his subsequent educational path encompassed Government College Ibadan, followed by Richard Daley College and Chicago State University in the United States. Intriguingly, by 2023, Tinubu’s account had narrowed down to solely attending Chicago State University.”
“I am scratching my head. How is that possible? Methinks that all well-meaning Nigerians should be as confused as I am with Tinubu’s declaration that he had no primary and secondary education, yet he has a university degree. You may wish to ask Tinubu how he attained this feat so that we can learn from his ingenuity.”
His remark comes as the Presidential Elections Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) reserves judgement in the petitions filed by Atiku and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) challenging the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s declaration of Tinubu as Nigeria’s president.
In the exercise, Atiku trailed Tinubu, according to the results released by the electoral umpire while Obi was third.
