Atiku Inquires About Tinubu’s Educational Background

Former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, Atiku Abubakar, has once again raised concerns about the ongoing controversy surrounding President Bola Tinubu’s academic background.

Atiku, who is currently seeking clarification from a United States court regarding the apparent inconsistencies in the academic certificates issued to President Tinubu by Chicago State University, emphasized that a resolution to this matter is essential for the public’s comprehension of Tinubu’s educational journey. Atiku took to his official Twitter account, @atiku, on Sunday to express his perplexity.

“In light of recent developments, I find myself pondering the path that has led us to this intricate situation. In 1999, @officialABAT (Bola Ahmed Tinubu) indicated attending St. John’s Primary School, Aroloya, Lagos, followed by Children Home School in Ibadan,” Atiku shared.

Tinubu’s education journey, as previously detailed, then took him to Government College Ibadan, and subsequently to Richard Daley College and Chicago State University in the United States. Atiku pointed out that it’s intriguing that Tinubu’s current acknowledgment is limited to attending Chicago State University.

“At this juncture, I am left wondering about the plausibility of this sequence. How could this have transpired? I believe that the confusion surrounding Tinubu’s statement, wherein he disavowed any primary and secondary education while possessing a university degree, must be a matter of shared curiosity. I invite those interested to inquire further about the methodology behind this accomplishment,” Atiku added with a touch of humor, as he accompanied his post with a laughing emoji.

Currently, Atiku and the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, are jointly contesting the Independent National Electoral Commission’s declaration of Tinubu as the victor of the February 25 election.

In response, Bala Ibrahim, the Publicity Director of the ruling All Progressives Congress, criticized Atiku for what he perceived as a lack of sportsmanship and an attempt to discredit the president. Ibrahim expressed his concerns about the motives behind Atiku’s actions, stating, “The actions of politicians often raise questions about whether their intentions are geared toward enhancing the political landscape or simply undermining the system as a whole. Given Atiku Abubakar’s extensive involvement in Nigerian politics, one would hope he receives sound counsel. His history includes facing numerous allegations from political adversaries, most of which were baseless and at times even absurd.”

“However, his current actions, mirroring or even surpassing the tactics employed against him in the past, suggest he may be following the lead of those with lesser political acumen. This approach could have unfavorable consequences and tarnish his legacy if he continues down this path. He is coming across as a poor loser,” Ibrahim concluded.
