Tinubu’s credentials show that he graduated from CSU in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, accounting, and management. However, there have been allegations bordering on discrepancies with his certificate.

Recently, Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), approached a US court for the northern district of Illinois in Chicago, for an order compelling CSU to release the academic records of Tinubu.

The president, through his counsel, filed a counter-application opposing the request for the release of his academic records.
