Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president and the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate for the elections of 2023 has voiced his confusion about President Bola Ahmed Tinubu educational background and asked how the nation came to what he called the “end of the road.”
On Sunday, Atiku voiced worries about President Tinubu’s inconsistent educational history on his X profile, formerly known as Twitter.
According to 9jaknow, Atiku and Peter Obi, the candidates for the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25 presidential election, are presently contesting President Tinubu’s election and eligibility before the Presidential Election Petitions Court (PEPC) in Abuja. Tinubu was the APC candidate.
The former Vice President stated that he thought it was odd that Tinubu would subsequently claim other things in his academic credentials in 2023 after claiming attendance at certain schools in 1999, when he was elected governor of Lagos State.
Therefore, he urged well-intentioned Nigerians, who he thought should be equally perplexed as he was, to join him in looking for clarity on the matter. He suggested the hashtag #AskTinubu in order to learn from Tinubu’s “ingenuity” of earning a university degree without completing primary and secondary education and to discover and discover Tinubu’s “ingenuity” themselves.
I wondered this morning how we arrived at this cul-de-sac, Atiku wrote. Before moving on to Children’s Home School in Ibadan, @officialABAT stated he attended St. John’s Primary School in Aroloya, Lagos, in 1999.
He said that Government College Ibadan, Richard Daley College, and Chicago State University in the United States were his next stops on the road to a college degree.
Curiously, Tinubu decided to solely attend @ChicagoState in 2023. I’m racking my brain. How is it even doable? I think that Tinubu’s claim that he had no elementary or secondary education, despite holding a university degree, should be perplexing to all well-meaning Nigerians in the same way that it is to me. You might want to ask Tinubu how he managed to pull off this accomplishment so we can benefit from his creativity.
