Nigerian President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been asked to explain to Nigerians how he got a univeristy degree in Chicago State University in the United States without having any basic education such as primary and secondary academic qualifications. The query was given out to the President by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Atiku Abubakar through his verified X (formerly Twitter) account on Sunday.
Former Presidential Candidate Queries Nigerian President to explain his possession of University Degree without Primary, secondat school
According to the former Vice President, in 1999, President Tinubu claimed to have attended St. John’s Primary School in Aroloya, Lagos State before proceeding to Children’s Home School in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
He added his (Tinubu) next port of call in his educational journey was the Government College Ibadan and the Richard Daley College after which he proceeded to Chicago State University in the United States.
“I woke up this morning wondering how we got to this cul de sac. In 1999, Tinubu 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 Chicago State University in the United States,” he tweeted.
Atiku further urged well-meaning Nigerians to query Tinubu’s declaration of no primary and secondary education yet has a university degree.
“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.”
Atiku had recently filed a separate case No. 23-5099 (N. D. III.) at the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against Tinubu in the United States.
This is different from the suit requesting the academic records of Tinubu which read that he holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the Chicago State University.
