The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has applauded the decision of the Chicago State University in the United States of America (USA) to release the credentials of President Bola Tinubu, stating that Nigerians are eagerly waiting.
Recall that the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar on August 2, approached the States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois to issue a subpoena for Chicago State University to release Tinubu’s school records, citing longstanding controversies around the Nigerian president’s background.
In his subpoena, Atiku told the court he was seeking the documents as part of discovery to strengthen his legal challenge against the declaration of Tinubu as Nigeria’s president.
PDP in a post on its verified account on X noted that the Chicago State University in response to the application filed by Atiku has agreed to release the credentials of Tinubu.
The party stated that this would form the greater part of the decision-making process of their petition before the court.
The opposition party wrote, “This is now official. The Chicago State University in the United States of America, in response to the application filed by the @OfficialPDPNig and its Presidential Candidate in the February 25, 2023 Election, @Atiku has agreed to release the credentials of Bola A. Tinubu.
“Nigerians and members of the international community are eagerly waiting for this information as this will form greater part of the decision-making process of the petition before the court.”
