The Chicago State University once again confirmed that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), indeed attended the university.
Telescope.ng reports that a viral article had claimed that all the schools Tinubu claimed to have attended had disowned him.
However, Caleb Westberg, who is in charge of the office of Records and Registration of Chicago State University, confirmed Tinubu’s attendance in a terse email response on Monday, June 27.
Westberg, according to PM News, also confirmed that Tinubu was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with Honours.
The response from Westberg read: “To whom it may concern “Please be advised that Bola. A. Tinubu attended Chicago State University from August 1977 – June 1979. He was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with Honours on June 22, 1979. His major was accounting.”
A US-based lecturer, Farooq Kperogi said he also reached out to his colleague at the Chicago State University to help me verify if Tinubu graduated from the school.
Kperogi posted on the findings on his verified Facebook page: “In light of renewed doubts about Tinubu’s qualifications, I again reached out to a colleague of mine at the Chicago State University to help me verify if Tinubu graduated from the school. She told me he did but said she’d go ask at the Registrar’s office. She shared this with me.”
