The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 general election, Atiku Abubakar, is expected to address the issue of President Bola Tinubu’s academic records released by the Chicago State University at a press conference on Thursday.
This was made known through a press statement issued by the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party on Thursday.
Recall that Atiku had secured release of Tinubu’s education records from the CSU through a court subpoena, against the disclosure by the President.
The press statement read, “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.”
According to the reports, 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 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.
