The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has taken another swipe at President Bola Tinubu querying his primary and secondary education claim.
Atiku made this known via his X (formerly Twitter) verified account on Sunday.
According to the former Vice President, in 1999, Tinubu claimed to have attended St. John’s Primary School in Aroloya, Lagos State before proceeding to Children’s Home School in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
He added his (Tinubu) next port of call in his educational journey was the Government College Ibadan and the Richard Daley College after which he proceeded to Chicago State University in the United States.
“I woke up this morning wondering how we got to this cul de sac. In 1999, Tinubu claimed he attended St. John’s Primary School, Aroloya, Lagos, before proceeding to Children’s Home School in Ibadan.
“According to him, his next port of call in his educational journey was Government College Ibadan and, Richard Daley College and Chicago State University in the United States.
“Curiously, in 2023, Tinubu settled with attending only Chicago State University in the United States,” he tweeted.
Atiku further urged well-meaning Nigerians to query Tinubu’s declaration of no primary and secondary education yet has a university degree.
“I am scratching my head. How is that possible? Methinks that all well-meaning Nigerians should be as confused as I am with Tinubu’s declaration that he had no primary and secondary education, yet he has a university degree.
“You may wish to #AskTinubu how he attained this feat so that we can learn from his ingenuity.”
Atiku had recently filed a separate case No. 23-5099 (N. D. III.) at the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against Tinubu in the United States.
This is different from the suit requesting the academic records of Tinubu which read that he holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the Chicago State University.
