The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, is set to address the issue of President Bola Tinubu’s academic records released by the Chicago State University (CSU) at a press conference today.
This was announced in a statement released on the press conference invitation, which reads, “This is to inform and invite you to the World Press Conference of Our Presidential Candidate, His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, GCON, at the Yar’Adua Centre tomorrow, Thursday, October 5, 2023, in the afternoon.
“The exact time will be communicated shortly. Please endeavour to attend. Thank You.”
Chronicle NG reports that Atiku secured the release of Tinubu’s education records from the CSU through a court subpoena, against the disclosure by the President.
Tinubu’s 1979 CSU certificate, which he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), was different from samples of the certificates the university provided to students that same year, according to newly released records and a deposition on Tuesday.
The CSU Registrar stated under oath that he could not certify the certificate Tinubu provided to INEC.
Since the documents’ release, Atiku has remained silent.
