Tinubu’s Certificate Controversy: Supreme Court Faults Chicago State University’s Letters, Causing Tension
The Supreme Court has reviewed an appeal from Atiku Abubakar concerning Bola Tinubu’s degree credentials from Chicago State University
Atiku argued that such significant matters should not be decided at preliminary stages
Justice Okoro, addressing the appeal on Monday, expressed concern over the letters pertaining to Tinubu’s degree
On Monday, October 23, the Supreme Court noted the existence of inconsistent communicative documents from Chicago State University (CSU) regarding President.
Justice John Okoro, head of a seven-member panel examining an application by Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) candidate, voiced concerns regarding Tinubu‘s victory on Monday. This application challenges the validity of Tinubu’s certificate from Chicago State University.
At this particular hearing, Justice Okoro communicated that the resolution of criminal cases requires evidence that eliminates any reasonable doubt, according to a report by Daily Trust.
“But in this case, there are two conflicting letters from the CSU – one authenticating the president’s certificate and another discrediting it. Which do we rely on?” he queried.
