BREAKING: Fresh twist in Tinubu’s Chicago varsity saga *Admission gained through GCE, not US college



A new twist is unfolding in the certificate saga linking President Bola Tinubu to Chicago State University (CSU) as fresh information is pointing to a revelation that the owner of the document actually gained admission into the institution with General School Certificate (GCE) in 1973 and not Richard Delay College, as claimed by the President.

Peoples Gazette, reports that the new document obtained from court papers show “Bola A. Tinubu” gained admission into CSU to study business administration with high school science subjects, as shown in a 1970 General Certificate of Education (GCE) Ordinary Level (O/L).

The paper reports that the certified true copy (CTC) of the said certificate, with serial number S028705, shows it was obtained in the November/December 1970 GCE examination conducted by the University of Cambridge, obtained from the Federal High Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) showed, the owner took only three science subjects – physics, chemistry, and biology.

“This is to certify that the candidate (Bola A. Tinubu) named below sat for a Joint Examination for the Higher School Certificate and General Certificate of Education and qualified for the award of a General Certificate of Education (GCE),” the document allegedly issued by Cambridge University’s Local Examinations Syndicate in 1970, said.

“The candidate passed at the level shown (Principal or Subsidiary) in the subject(s) named and attained the standard of the G.C.E. Advanced or Ordinary Level pass as indicated.”

The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) on Wednesday upheld the election of Tinubu as President, as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), despite allegation of certificate forgery against him.

Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) levelled the allegation at the PEPC in Abuja where his witness presented documents subpoenaed from CSU.

The allegation comprised identity theft, age falsification, certificate forgery, and perjury. But the PEPC rejected the witness as incompetent.

Atiku is currently litigating in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois for a subpoena compelling CSU to provide him directly with Tinubu’s records.

Filings at the PEPC in Abuja and in the US court show Tinubu’s CSU records presented in both courts have the same details.

The documents show, among others, that one “Bola A. Tinubu”, a “female”,

  • Who was born on 29 March 1954,
  • Attended Southwest College in Chicago after attending Government College, Lagos.
  • She obtained a diploma from Southwest College with which she was admitted to CSU in 1977, and graduated with a BSc degree in “business administration” in 1979.
  • The degree certificate CSU issued to her was dated 27 June 1979.

However, Atiku argued President Bola Tinubu filled in the forms he submitted to the INEC in 1999 and 2022 that, he, a “man”,

  • Was born on 29 March 1952.
  • Attended Government College, Ibadan (in 1999 INEC forms).
  • Declined to state his primary and secondary schools (in 2022 INEC form)
  • Attended CSU where he graduated with a BSc degree in “business and administration” in 1979.
  • His CSU degree certificate was dated 22 June 1979.

Atiku insisted these and other discrepancies in Tinubu’s records show his degree certificate was allegedly forged by engaging in identity theft to counterfeit and claim the school records of the original “Bola A. Tinubu”, who is a female.

Atiku has asked the US court to expedite the subpoena of Tinubu’s CSU records to clear the inconsistencies in Tinubu’s particulars he needs to buttress his case at the Supreme Court of Nigeria in his appeal against the judgment of the PEPC.


BREAKING: Mother of all strikes! D-Day, October 3! *Stockpile food, essentials – NLC, TUC   



The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Tuesday, announced midnight Tuesday, October 3 as the date for the commencement of total strike by their workers to get the Federal Government accede to their demands to end the current sufferings of their members and Nigerians at large.

The two labour centres representing the organised labour in Nigeria, which arrived at the decision after they had met separately at their local levels directed their affiliates to mobilise for protests from October 3, saying they took the decisions were approved at the meeting of the joint National Executive Council of the two unions on Tuesday, September 26, in Abuja.

Joe Ajaero, President of the NLC, speaking on behalf of his group, while urging Nigerians to stock their homes ahead the total strike, bemoaned the situation where the government had ignored the demands of the workers, saying it “substantially failed to meet its demands after the removal of fuel subsidy,” added that adding that the grace period given by the two labour centres had expired.

The organised labour, is demanding wage awards for public workers and a new minimum wage, apart from the removal of tax exemptions and allowances to public sector workers, provision of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses, the release of modalities for the N70billion for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and immediate reversal of all anti-poor policies of the Federal Government.

The union, which on September 5th and 6th, the NLC embarked on a two-day warning strike which led to the partial crippling of economic activities in some states and gave the government a 21-day ultimatum to meet its demands, is also demanding a stop to the increase in public school fees, the release of the eight months withheld salaries of university teachers and workers as well as the increase in Value Added Tax (VAT).

BREAKING: Total strike looms! *NLC, TUC, finally meet, agree on action



The Federal Government, may have finally lost the move to stop the impending strike by organised labour, or at least mitigate it by dividing its membership, following a meeting of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), hitherto in disagreement over the issue.

In fact, the two bodies representing the junior and senior workers in Nigeria are reportedly meeting currently to announce a statewide indefinite strike, a move coming about three weeks after the NLC held a warning strike on Tuesday, September 5, and Wednesday 6, 2023, without the TUC, which it explained was to call attention of the FG to the painful suffering of Nigerians, particularly workers.

However, indications, suggests that having agreed to come to an understanding in the interest of the working masses of Nigeria, both camps, having also met separately in their different local organs, decided to hold a joint press conference at 3 p.m. on Tuesday to announce an indefinite nationwide strike in response to the FG’s failure to address the suffering and other socioeconomic hardships caused by the removal of subsidies on Premium Motor, PMS, commonly known as petrol.

Tinubu will shock Atiku and his gang – APC *Why meeting with Biden didn’t hold



Having met with Joe Biden, at a parley of the G20 group in India, it was unnecessary for President Bola Tinubu to hold another session with his US counterpart at the recent United Nation General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, the All Progressives Congress (APC), explained on Monday.

Felix Morka, spokesman of the party, in a statement, also explain other issues in a quick riposte to the attacks of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who claimed that the POTUS avoided Tinubu at UNGA because he did not want to be associated with the putrid stains trailing his Nigerian counterpart.

Morka, National Publicity Secretary of the party, also dismissed Atiku’s claims through his spokesman, Phrank Shaibu that fuel subsidy, which the Tinubu administration said it has jettisoned having dismissed it as a drain on the nation’s resources, had returned through the backdoor, saying the payment of the mark up in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) by the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), in August, was to ensure stability.

Hear him: ”Shaibu’s claim that fuel subsidy is back is not correct. The government’s intervention to ensure some measure of price stability and predictability does not amount to the return of the ruinous fuel subsidy of the recent past.

“Lifting the Visa ban on Nigerians by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) authorities should ordinarily make any well-meaning Nigerian happy. Diplomatic rapprochement between Nigeria and UAE authorities is ongoing and details of outcomes will soon be made public.

“The matter of the proposed meeting with United States of America President Joe Biden does not even require elaboration. Having met with President Tinubu on the sidelines of the G-20 Nations summit in India, another meeting with President Biden during the United Nation’s General Assembly (UNGA) had become unnecessary and was not even on President Tinubu’s schedule, contrary to preliminary indications on the matter.

“Nigeria is facing pressing challenges that require focused efforts and undivided attention. Issues such as economic recovery, security of lives and property, infrastructure development, and social welfare demand continuous, sustained and innovative efforts.

“President Tinubu is committed to ensuring an inclusive, honest, transparent and accountable governance system. We encourage citizens to actively participate in democratic processes, ventilate their views, and contribute constructively to national conversations. As the discerning people that we are, we remain confident that Nigerians will continue to differentiate between genuine, constructive and development-oriented criticisms and those driven by self-interest, mercenary considerations and disruptive political agenda.

“While we urge Nigerians to ignore purveyors of fake news and other inanities, it is obvious that Shaibu and his likes will stop at nothing in their desperation to distort facts and give oxygen to their politically knocked-out principal. But that can only worsen his infamy in the light of the President’s determined commitment and strides to improving the social and economic conditions for all Nigerians.

“The PDP and all its agents of misinformation should know by now that no amount of sleazy propaganda, muckraking, lies, half-truths, misrepresentations, misinformation or disinformation will confer the presidency of Nigeria on their candidate.

“Nigerians have freely chosen our party, the APC, and President Bola Tinubu, to continue to steer the ship of state. And the President is making good his campaign promises to deliver purposeful leadership to remake Nigeria, open the economy to rewarding investments, promote inclusive growth, create jobs, secure lives and property and renew hope for a vibrant future.”
