US court to grant Atiku access to Tinubu’s Chicago State University certificate 

    Published By:

    The United States Court says it has jurisdiction in the case instituted by Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, to compel Chicago State University (CSU) to produce critical documents relating to Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

    Mr Tinubu who contested the February 25 election under the All Progressives Congress, was dragged to court after being declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

    Atiku had earlier this month requested court approval to subpoena Tinubu’s files domiciled with CSU because he believed the documents would clarify glaring inconsistencies in Mr Tinubu’s background, including publicly-available documents that suggested the CSU in the 1970s admitted a female student bearing Bola Tinubu who was born on March 29, 1954.

    Shortly after Abubakar approached the court for the records, Tinubu reportedly filed a motion to thwart the request from being granted, citing a U.S. privacy law for students.

    According to documents produced by CSU, the “Bola Tinubu” who attended CSU was a U.S. citizen, while in the information provided to INEC, Mr. Tinubu states that he has always been solely a Nigerian citizen and has never acquired the citizenship of any other country.  According to the documents produced by CSU, the “Bola Tinubu” who attended CSU was born in 1954, while according to the information provided to the INEC, Mr. Tinubu was born in 1952.

    “According to the documents produced by CSU, the “Bola Tinubu” who applied to CSU submitted a prior transcript from Southwest College that identified “Bola Tinubu” as “female.” According to the documents produced by CSU, the “Bola Tinubu” who attended CSU claimed that s/he had graduated from Government College, Lagos, in 1970, while in the information provided to INEC, Mr. Tinubu makes no mention of having attended Government College.

    In accordance with the above,  Atiku, through his counsel, applied to the Court for an order granting him leave to compel CSU to release and verify the authenticity of documents purportedly issued to Tinubu by the university.

    According to Politics Economist reports, the UK court assumes jurisdiction, says Atiku satisfies all requirements. The court said it will not hesitate to grant the prayers of Atiku.”
