Chicago State University has confirmed that the National Leader of All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu graduated from the university.

This was confirmed to Punch by Beverly Poindexter, who is in charge of official transcript requests, enrolment, and degree verification at the Office of the Registrar, of the school.

According to Poindexter “Mr Tinubu did attend our university, however, if further information is needed, go to studentclearinghouse.org website to make a formal request”.

In an earlier letter dated August 20, 1999, and signed by the Registrar, Lois Davis, the university stated that Tinubu was its student between 1977 and 1979.

He wrote, “Please be advised that Bola A. Tinubu did indeed attend Chicago State University from August 1977 through June 1979. He was awarded a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and Administration with honours on June 22, 1979. His major was Accounting.”

Also attached to Tinubu’s form CF004 submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission during his re-election bid in 2003 was a commendation letter from CSU recognising his performance and “high scholastic achievement”.

There have been various questions by Nigerians on the schools attended by the APC stalwarts.
