The All Progressives Congress (APC) has ridiculed the efforts of the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to obtain the academic records of President Bola Tinubu from the Chicago State University (CSU).
Naija News recalls that a United States Court in Eastern Illinois had ordered the University to release the academic records of President Tinubu to Atiku within two days.
However, the ruling party said it had nothing to fear as the President had always boasted that he had nothing to hide.
Atiku had approached the US court for an order compelling the CSU to release Tinubu’s academic records.
He alleged that Tinubu’s academic records were forged.
Tinubu’s credentials indicated that he graduated from CSU in 1979 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Accounting, and Management, but there have been allegations bordering on discrepancies with his certificate.
Speaking to Punch, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Duro Meseko said the ruling party is not bothered about the court order, adding that Tinubu has nothing to hide.
He said, “The President has always said over and again that he has nothing to hide. His records are there for all to see. Chicago University has also written severally to say that this man is from us. Nothing has changed. There is no cause for alarm. It is an expedition in futility.”
In its reaction, the Presidency submitted that Tinubu’s academic record would be of no value to the PDP presidential candidate, noting that Atiku and his party were simply chasing shadows.
