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

Published

on

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.

A loud grumbling has enveloped the 40 Blantyre Crescent, Wuse, Zone 2, Abuja, headquarters of the All Progressives Congress (APC), where staff across different departments are threatening to down tools in protest of poor welfare and biting economic hardship.

Daily Trust, is reporting that the staff are specifically asking the party’s top echelon to make provision for their housing and other allowances, stressing that the economic situation of the country had become quite unfavourable to them.

The paper quoted one of the staff, who spoke on condition of anonymity, as saying that the party’s executive members had left them to suffer, while taking home humongous amounts of money as salaries and allowances.

Though Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, National Chairman of the party, is said to have commenced payment of N35,000 provisional wage award to them in January 2024, they argued that the largesse would in June, and they would be back to square one and therefore, they needed more stable welfare packages.

In a swift riposte, Felix Morka, spokesman of the party, was quoted as dismissing the agitation, saying: “Those matters I don’t really discuss them. As you can see, there are many important things to discuss; at the national level, in Edo State. We are battling with all that. So, any in-house matters are not my focus right now.”

David Adeleke Nigerian music sensation, otherwise known as Davido is stamping his giant feet with which he has mesmerised his audience across the world in the arena of philanthropy, with an announcement of a fresh donation of a whopping N300million to some orphanages across the country.

The latest is an increase of N63million up from the N237million the popular singer, who disclosed the largesse in a statement on his social media accounts on Tuesday, dolled out last year as part of the gesture in what is now turning out a yearly programme since it started a few years ago.

The gesture is coming at a time Nigeria is under an intense weather of deprivation and poverty, with the prices of food and other commodities hitting the roof and citizens, unable to afford basic items mostly going to bed on empty stomachs as a result.

In recent weeks, demonstrations had erupted in many parts of the country, including Niger, Kano, Ogun and Oyo States, where residents trooped into the streets to demand an end to the parlous situation, which they blamed on the insensitive policies of the government of Bola Tinubu, the Nigerian President.
