Tinubu’s certificate saga: Nigeria’s reputation at stake – Atiku


The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has insisted that Nigeria’s reputation is at stake amid the controversy surrounding the Chicago State University (CSU) certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) by President Bola Tinubu.

Atiku spoke on Thursday at an International press conference held in Abuja.

He also urged the relevant stakeholders to uphold the tenets of democracy by establishing the truth about the certificate submitted to INEC by Tinubu.

“The reputation of our country is at stake and that affects Nigerians everywhere and wherever they may be.” Atiku said.

Recall that the Chicago State University released Tinubu’s academic records on Monday.


The CSU Registrar, Carl Westberg, also carried out a deposition of the documents on Tuesday, in compliance with the ruling of Magistrate Jeffrey Gilbert.

Gilbert had last month granted Atiku’s request for the release of Tinubu’s academic records but the President filed an application for a review of the order.

Tinubu’s lawyers insisted that the documents would not be relevant in Atiku’s appeal against the President at the Supreme Court and asked for a review of the ruling.
