The Chicago State University has finally laid to rest the controversies surrounding the academic qualifications of the National Leader of the All-Progressives Congress and Presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu by affirming that the APC stalwart attended the University.
Beverly Poindexter, the person in charge of official transcript request, enrolment and degree verification at the Office of the Registrar in the institution, disclosed this in an email response to The Punch on Tuesday.
“Mr. Tinubu did attend our university, however, if further information is needed, go to the website studentclearinghouse.org to make a formal request.”
Please be advised that Bola A. Tinubu did indeed attend Chicago State University from August 1977 through June 1979. He was awarded a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and Administration with honours on June 22, 1979. His major was Accounting.”
Also attached to Tinubu’s form CF004 submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) during his re-election bid in 2003 was a commendation letter from CSU recognising his performance and “high scholastic achievement”.
Recall that the academic qualification of Tinubu has raised questions since he declared his intention to run in the 2023 Presidential election.
