The 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, said he is confused about how President Bola Tinubu, without primary and secondary school education, graduated and has a university degree.
In a post on his X platform, Atiku urged Nigerians to ask Tinubu how he got a university degree without primary and secondary education so the country can learn from his ingenuity.
He wrote, “I woke up this morning wondering how we got to this cul de sac. In 1999, @officialABATclaimed he attended St. John’s Primary School, Aroloya, Lagos, before proceeding to Children Home School in Ibadan.
“According to him, his next port of call in his educational journey was Government College Ibadan and, Richard Daley College and Chicago State University in the United States.
“Curiously, in 2023, Tinubu settled with attending only @ChicagoState. I am scratching my head. How is that possible? Methinks that all well-meaning Nigerians should be as confused as I am with Tinubu’s declaration that he had no primary and secondary education, yet he has a university degree.
“You may wish to #AskTinubu how he attained this feat so that we can learn from his ingenuity -AA.”
Tinubu’s academic records from primary school to university have remained questionable.
Atiku has contested the Feb 25th presidential election results that brought in Tinubu as the president of Nigeria, citing irregularities, and forged academic certificates, among others.
