Certificate/Identity Controversy: My Record is Consistent, Says Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has finally broken silence on the controversy about his educational and family backgrounds.

He spoke while meeting some professionals and party loyalists.

In a video made available to Irohinoodua, the President indicated that he was not moved by the pile of lies and propaganda mounted against him.

He maintained that he was from the famous Tinubu family, adding that if his critics wanted a DNA, he was ready.

The Asiwaju of Lagos insisted that there was no controversy about his consistent date of birth, adding that the date of birth was in the family records.

“My record is consistent” Tinubu said.

He posited that those who went to the Chicago State University (CSU) were now convinced that they had wasted their time.

“They are now convinced they wasted their money”, he said.

The President declared that he was not claiming another family, saying “I’m not claiming another family. I’m Tinubu and Tinubu proper.”

He added that he was trained as an accountant and rose to the pinnacle of his career.

President Tinubu expressed delight that he had now received the originals of his diploma certificate.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Presidential aspirant in the February 25 election, Atiku Abubakar had filed a lingering case in the United States Court challenging the educational background of the President.

The CSU had released the results detailing that the President actually attended the university.

Even with evident conviction based on the CSU reports, opposition agents continue to distort, manipulate and undermine the CSU report, citing fake and fallacious references not associated with the CSU in a desperate bid to undermine the President’s authority.
