BREAKING NEWS; Court Dismisses Atiku’s Case Against Tinubu

446

lawsuit seeking to access President Bola Tinubuā€™s educational background from Chicago State University has been withdrawn.

In the 2022 campaigns, Tinubu declared having a Bachelorā€™s in Business Administration with honours from Chicago State University (CSU).

Despite Beverly Poindexter from CSUā€™s Office of the Registrar confirming Tinubuā€™s degree, doubts persisted. Presidential candidate Atiku then launched a legal effort to obtain these records.

According to Punch, before its hearing, Atiku withdrew the lawsuit prompting Judge Patrick J. Heneghan to dismiss the case.

He stated, ā€œPetitionerā€™s subpoena in this case is withdrawn,ā€ thus ending CSUā€™s involvement.

Victor Henderson, a notable business litigation attorney in Chicago, recognized Tinubu as a respected CSU graduate and a significant figure in the US.

In a press statement dated August 2, 2023, Henderson said, ā€œDespite Tinubuā€™s prominence, Atiku Abubakar and a few of his followers have attempted to illegally access the Presidentā€™s confidential educational records by filing an improper lawsuit without basic due process or even the simple decency of asking the President himself to release his records.

ā€œThe goal of Abubakar and others, of course, is to stain the Presidentā€™s character and reputation and to try to steal an election that they lost.

ā€œThe good news for the President and his supporters is that the court dismissed the lawsuit that Abubakar improperly filed to get access to the Presidentā€™s records.

ā€œIn addition, a leading Chicago State official recently confirmed, again, that the President is a long-time and distinguished alumnus of the university.ā€
