President Tinubu’s Chicago University Education Record, US Visa As Exhibits In Court

The Presidential Election Petition Court on Tuesday evening in Abuja admitted as exhibits the Chicago State University educational documents of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who formally opened his defence in a petition filed against his election by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Abubakar Atiku.

The educational documents tendered to establish his attendance and graduation at the American University comprised, among others, the admission letter offered to Tinubu by the famous institution.
Through his lead counsel, Chief Wole Olanipekun, President Tinubu also tendered his US Visa documents, which indicated that he had severally visited the United States of America (USA) unhindered between 2011 and 2021.
Tinubu, who tendered the documents to debunk the allegations of criminality contained in the petition against him, also made available to the court all documents of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) that cleared him for the US trips.

Also admitted as exhibits by the court is the United States of America’s embassy letter of April 4, 2003, which is a response to a letter from the Nigerian Police dated February 3, 2003, which claimed that the embassy had no criminal records of Tinubu in the USA.
The documents were admitted in spite of rigorous objections against their respective admissibility by PDP and the former Vice President.
The petition’s first and third respondents, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), made no objections to the admission of any of the documents.

In addition to the educational records, the court also accepted the originating summons of a lawsuit filed at the Supreme Court by the attorneys general of the states of Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Edo, and Sokoto disputing Tinubu’s educational qualifications to run for president in 2023.

Also admitted were newspaper publications on several suits filed against Tinubu by several groups.
The petition’s next hearing has been postponed until July 5 by Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani, the court’s presiding justice.

  1. This is the first time the election tribunal case is taking this dimension. All the while, it has always been a walk over for a declared winner and the main reason you see and hear politician dare their opponent ''Go to court''

    I think this are interesting times and it will help to prove how independent the judiciary have become.

    1. *These are interesting times
      *How independent the judiciary has become

  2. Nice comment, but it should not change to you guys bashing the tribunal when the final ruling does not go in favour of your candidate.

  3. Is it not foolishness in the first place to accused someone who work with Mobil oil for so many years even became a finance director that he did not attend school? I am not saying the guy is cool but there are some accusations you don't throw around just because you hate someone.

    1. Hate ke - in a tribunal? Are constitutions built on or are legal proceedings based on hate and love? You sure you go school baah? Are you following the case at all?

    2. And anyone can pick up the phone and call a school to confirm that a student graduated an institution. Anybody can confirm this information on their own.
