CSU: Atiku to address Tinubu’s certificate saga in world press conference


Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, will address the issue of President Bola Tinubu’s academic records released by the Chicago State University (CSU) at a world press conference today.

“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 endeavor to attend. Thank you,” a statement released on the press conference invitation reads.

Recall that Atiku secured the release of Tinubu’s education records from the CSU through a court subpoena against the disclosure by the President.

The released records, which came first on October 3 and a deposition on Tuesday, showed that Tinubu’s 1979 CSU certificate he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was different from samples of the certificates the university issued to students that same year.

Under oath, the CSU Registrar said he could not authenticate the certificate Tinubu presented to INEC.
