Reno Omokri, a sociopolitical activist, has shared the letter he received from Chicago State University when he visited the school to inquire about President Bola Tinubu’s education.
Gist legit recalls that on Friday, the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) admitted into evidence a transcript from Chicago State University that was written in Tinubu’s name and identified as female by South West College.
In their joint petition challenging Tinubu’s victory in the presidential election on February 25, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and his party had submitted the document along with other documents to support the allegations.
However, Omokri, a fervent PDP supporter, insisted that Tinubu attended and graduated from Chicago State University in response to the allegations leveled against him.
He said that he went to the university to expose the president, but instead he found out that Tinubu was a graduate of the school.
He wrote, “I worked for Waziri Atiku Abubakar to win. I pray he unseats Tinubu at the Presidential Election Petition Court. And I am not pursuing any political appointment or job offer from Tinubu.
“However, it is false to assert that Bola Tinubu did not attend Chicago State University. I went there physically. I did a video broadcast from their campus. I met their officials. Tinubu attended and graduated from Chicago State University with honours, and they even have a photo of him in their alumni office as one of their most accomplished alumni.
“Not only did I go there physically to expose Tinubu (only to find out that he attended), I also asked their registry to put what they told me in writing.
“Attached is the letter they gave me. You can also go there physically, as I did, or email or phone them if you doubt this letter given to me.
“The man is no saint. His past cartel links indelibly taint him. But let us be fair, honest and transparent as we oppose him. If we attack Tinubu based on lies, God will just disappoint us further and appoint him greater.”
