Tinubu ‘blames’ a clerical error for inconsistencies on the Chicago University certificate’

According to President Bola Tinubu, inconsistencies on the certificate that Chicago State University awarded him were the result of a clerical error.

Oluwole Afolabi and Christopher Carmichael, Tinubu’s attorneys, said in court documents that an unnamed university clerk misread the date written on his freshly issued certificate, giving “the appearance of differences.”

The assertion is made in their response to a lawsuit filed by the former vice president Atiku Abubakar, who asked for the university to disclose Tinubu’s academic records.

A US judge had given Tinubu until August 23 to submit a formal filing outlining why the former vice president’s data should not be made available to him.

The president asserted that he graduated from Chicago State University with a bachelor of science in business administration.

However, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential contender Atiku Abubakar claimed that Tinubu’s academic credentials were falsified.

Unfortunately, CSU made a number of mistakes in answering the unlawful and illegitimate request, according to the president’s attorneys.

Bola A. Tinubu received a new diploma from CSU, however, the date of graduation was misprinted as June 27, 1979.

“The correct date was June 22, 1979, but that scrivener’s error — along with a change in the CSU logo, the font on the diploma, and leadership at CSU who signed the diploma — created the appearance of differences between an earlier issued diploma and the one issued in response to the 2022 subpoena.”

The credentials Tinubu provided to CSU before he was accepted into the university are another thing the former vice president is requesting.
