The 2023 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has again taken a swipe at President Bola Tinubu, over his educational background.
Alhaji Atiku who took this step through a post on his X handle on Sunday, August 27, 2023, asked President Tinubu to explain to Nigerians, how he acquired a university degree without a primary and secondary education.
The former Vice President alleged that Tinubu claimed in1999, to have attended St. John’s Primary School, Aroloya Lagos, before proceeding to Children Home School, and Government College, both in Ibadan, before his journey to Richard Daley College and Chicago State University in the USA.
However, he alleged that the President had curiously removed his other educational qualifications except the Chicago’s, in 2023, asking Nigerians to ask how it was possible to have a degree without Primary and Secondary School Certificates.
“I woke up this morning wondering how we got to this cul de sac. In 1999, @officialABAT claimed he attended St. John’s Primary School, Aroloya, Lagos, before proceeding to Children’s Home School in Ibadan.
“According to him, his next port of call in his educational journey was Government College Ibadan and, Richard Daley College and Chicago State University in the United States.
“Curiously, in 2023, Tinubu settled with attending only @ChicagoState. 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 #AskTinubu how he attained this feat so that we can learn from his ingenuity 😆 -AA,” Atiku tweeted.
