Tinubu Academic Records: Atiku To Address Nigerians In World Press Conference

Tinubu: Obama, Trump Also Shielded Their Academic Records - Onanuga

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has announced a World Press Conference for today, Thursday.

This was disclosed by Dele Momodu, one of the campaign spokespersons of Atiku, on Wednesday night.

The reason for the conference remains unclear, however, it might be connected to the recently released academic records of President Bola Tinubu by Chicago State University (CSU).

Naija News recalls that Atiku had requested the documents to back his allegation of forgery of CSU certificate against Tinubu.

The allegation of forgery was one of those dismissed by the presidential election court in the suit Atiku filed to challenge the election of Tinubu.

However, Caleb Westberg, the registrar at Chicago State University, said Tinubu’s certificate, dated June 22, 1979, and tendered to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on June 17, 2022, was not issued by the school and its administrators.

Westberg, who has been a registrar at the University since November 2020, also said that Tinubu did not apply for a replacement certificate, nor was he ever issued one.

Although the certificate issue has dominated the headlines in the last 48 hours, Atiku has been silent about it.

Meanwhile, some organisations and individuals, especially critics, have called for the resignation of the president over the saga.
