Former Vice President and 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has commended the recent US Court decision that forced Chicago State University to disclose all academic records of Bola Tinubu. Atiku stated that this revelation would finally expose the truth about the President that Tinubu has concealed for over two decades.
In a statement released by Atiku’s Special Assistant on Public Communications, Phrank Shaibu, it was revealed that Justice Nancy Maldonado, a US Federal Judge, had ordered Chicago State University to release all of Tinubu’s academic records. Despite Tinubu’s attempts to prevent the disclosure, the court ruled in Atiku’s favor, emphasizing the importance of revealing the truth for the benefit of Nigerians.
Atiku highlighted that Tinubu had evaded accountability since 1999, when the late human rights lawyer, Gani Fawehinmi (SAN), first exposed his certificate fraud. Atiku questioned why Tinubu had been resisting the release of his academic records if he had nothing to hide. He also criticized Tinubu’s lawyer, Babatunde Ogala, for downplaying the significance of the court ruling, emphasizing the importance of transparency and justice in public life.
