Atiku Challenges Tinubu to Explain Obtaining Degree Without Primary and Secondary Education

Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has once again criticized President Bola Tinubu’s claims about his primary and secondary education history.

Atiku conveyed his sentiments through his verified X account (formerly Twitter) on Sunday.

The former Vice President pointed out that in 1999, Tinubu stated that he attended St. John’s Primary School in Aroloya, Lagos State, before moving on to Children’s Home School in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State.

Tinubu then indicated that he continued his educational journey at Government College Ibadan and Richard Daley College, eventually culminating at Chicago State University in the United States.

“I found myself pondering this situation today. In 1999, Tinubu asserted that he attended St. John’s Primary School in Aroloya, Lagos, before enrolling at Children’s Home School in Ibadan.

“According to his narrative, his educational path then led him to Government College Ibadan, Richard Daley College, and ultimately, Chicago State University in the United States. It’s perplexing,” Atiku commented.

Atiku also called on concerned Nigerians to question Tinubu’s claim of having no primary and secondary education while holding a university degree.

“I’m genuinely puzzled. How does that even make sense? I believe that all well-intentioned Nigerians must be as baffled as I am by Tinubu’s assertion that he lacked primary and secondary education, yet he holds a university degree.

“You might want to join me in using #AskTinubu to inquire how he accomplished this remarkable feat, so we can gain insights from his resourcefulness.”

Notably, Atiku recently initiated a separate case (No. 23-5099 N. D. III) against Tinubu in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

This legal action stands apart from the lawsuit seeking Tinubu’s academic records, which confirm his attainment of a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Chicago State University.
