Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 election, has said that the purported errors discovered in the certificate of President Bola Tinubu validate his discovery.
It was reported that, in response to Atiku’s petition in a federal court in Chicago, Illinois, United States, President Tinubu’s lawyer acknowledged errors in the academic certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), attributing these mistakes to the clerk of Chicago State University (CSU).
In a statement released on Saturday, the former vice president stated that documentation presented by his legal team in both the United States and Nigeria exhibited disturbing discrepancies and circumstantial fallacies in Tinubu’s academic records from the university.
For instance, among the documents is a certified true copy of the certificate submitted by Tinubu to INEC on June 17, 2022. According to Atiku’s legal representatives, this document purports to be the certificate granted to Tinubu by Chicago State University (CSU), indicating his attendance at the institution and the conferred degree.
Another document includes a letter dated September 22, 2022, from Mr. Caleb Westberg, CSU’s Registrar, attaching a copy of the certificate awarded to Bola Tinubu in recognition of his degree from the university.
Moreover, there exists another document—a copy of the certificate forwarded by Mr. Westberg in response to a subpoena issued to CSU regarding Bola Tinubu’s academic accomplishments.
Additional documents include the biography of Dr. Niva Lubin-Johnson, who served as the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of CSU from January 2001 to December 2002, and the biography of Dr. Elnora D. Daniel, the President of CSU from 1998 to 2008.
Nonetheless, upon careful examination of these documents, it becomes apparent that, although they all pertain to the same subject—Bola Tinubu’s academic qualifications from Chicago State University—they contain different details.
