Eight takeaways from Tinubu’s academic records released by Chicago State University

The Chicago State University (CSU), on Monday night, released the academic records of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Naija News reports that the Amercian institution released Tinubu’s academic records in compliance with the order of the District Court of Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.

The court had, on Saturday, ordered the CSU to release Atiku, who is challenging the victory of Tinubu, the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the 2023 general elections.

The development came after a U.S. Federal Judge, Nancy Maldonado, in a memorandum of opinion and order, adopted all the rulings of Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Gilbert of the U.S. District Court.

Below are the eight takeaways from Tinubu’s academic records.

  • The Chicago State University released the academic records in a Certificate of Service signed by its counsel, Michael D. Hayes.
  • The institution released the documents to the lawyers of Atiku and Tinubu by electronic mail.
  • Details of the released documents showed that CSU complied with Atiku’s request for a true correct copy of the Diploma for the Bachelor of Science degree issued in 1979 and Bates labelled as CSU 0001 through 0007 with an obscured student’s name, which the university said was for privacy reasons.
  • The university disclosed that it could not locate a true and correct copy relating to the diploma it issued in 1979 to Tinubu, saying that it does not, in the ordinary course, keep copies of student diplomas.
  • On Atiku’s request for any of the university’s diplomas other than that issued to President Tinubu that “contains the same font, seal, signatures, and wording which purports to be a CSU diploma issued to the president on or about June 22, 1979, the university said after diligent search it located and Bates labelled them CSU 0008 through CSU 0010 and obscured the student’s identity for privacy reasons.
  • CSU also produced Bates labelled as CSU 0011 and CSU 0012 diplomas prepared for other CSU students (with their names redacted for privacy), which match the format of the Tinubu replacement diploma dated June 27, 1997.
  • The university also released documents demanded by Atiku on the correct copies of the documents earlier certified by Jamar Orr in Exhibit D to Uwais Declaration and Bates labelled same CSU 0013 through 0032.
  • However, the institution said the communication to CSU between August 1, 2022, and August 1, 2023, was not produced because the objection to them was sustained by the court.
