Tinubu’s Chicago State University Certificates: Here are the Discrepancies and Similarities


This article highlights the discrepancies and similarities in Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s certificates.

The debate surrounding the academic credentials of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has gained substantial momentum in recent times. A closer examination of his Chicago State University certificates reveals a web of discrepancies and unexpected similarities that has left the nation in astonishment.


’s academic qualifications have come under scrutiny, particularly by Atiku Abubakar, the former vice president and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election. Atiku’s legal team, in response to President Tinubu’s lawyers’ acknowledgment of errors in the certificates, has taken a deep dive into the documents.


These certificates, issued by Chicago State University, ostensibly attest to President Tinubu’s educational background. However, upon closer inspection, the discrepancies and striking similarities within these certificates have raised eyebrows and prompted a nationwide discussion.

The fraud on both certificates

Now let’s discuss the possible fraud in both certificates.

1. Research revealed that Dr. Elnora Daniel, who signed both certificates in 1979, was not an employee of CSU in 1979. In fact, research further revealed that Dr. Elnora was employed in 1998, nine years after Tinubu allegedly graduated.

Question: How did she sign the certificate issued to Tinubu and Enahoro in 1979?


2. Research also revealed that Dr. Niva Lubin, who signed the 1979 certificate and issued it to Enahoro, was not employed until 1996.

Question: How did she sign the certificate issued to Enahoro (submitted by PDP) in 1979?

What is your take on this certificate issue? You can research it yourself to verify.

Do you see that both certificates that are in the public domain and before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal could be fake? It looks like the ATIKU Chicago case is the missing piece in the puzzle.
