The United States District Court has ruled in favour of the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP Atiku Abubakar, and ordered the Chicago State University to release President Bola Tinubu’s academic record by today, Monday.
But Tinubu’s lawyers insisted that the documents would not be relevant in Atiku’s appeal against his client at the Supreme Court.
Atiku had earlier secured an order from a US magistrate for CSU to make Tinubu’s academic records available to his legal team.
The magistrate, Jeffrey Gilbert, had ordered Tinubu’s alma mater to provide all relevant and non-privileged documents to Atiku’s legal team within two days.
The documents also sought by the PDP candidate, through his counsel, Angela Liu, include Tinubu’s record of admission and acceptance at the Chicago State University, dates of attendance as well the degrees, awards, and honours obtained by Tinubu from the CSU.
