Sen Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, attended Chicago State University.
Farouk Kperogi, a professor of mass communication, disclosed this on his Facebook page following a confirmation by a colleague of his at the university.
His inquiry followed insinuations that Tinubu might not have attended a higher institution. This followed his admission that he did not attend primary and secondary schools.
Kperogi wrote, “In light of renewed doubts about Tinubu’s qualifications, I again reached out to a colleague of mine at Chicago State University to help me verify if Tinubu graduated from the school. She told me he did but said she’d go ask at the Registrar’s office. She shared this with me.
“Apparently, the school prepared this in response to a cornucopia of inquiries from Nigeria. I can confirm that this is legitimate. The so-called FBI statement doing the rounds on social media that claims Tinubu didn’t graduate from Chicago State University appears to be a fabrication.”
