Presidency speaks on Tinubu’s alleged forged CSU certificate



Bola Tinubu

The presidency has debunked claims that the certificate presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) by President Bola Tinubu to be able to contest the 2023 presidency was forged.

Temitope Ajayi, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, stated in a statement regarding the controversy on Wednesday that the Chicago State University (CSU) made no admissions regarding the falsity of the certificate that President Tinubu presented to INEC.

He argued that the university affirmed under oath that Bola attended and graduated from the institution and that the school does not handle replacements for lost certificates.

His rebuttal comes amidst reports that the Chicago State University has said in the testimony of the institution that the Nigerian President presented a forged degree certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) when he filed his paperwork to lead Nigeria in June 2022.

However, Ajayi, in his submission, said there is no truth in such claims, as no man can forge a certificate he already possesses, and it is only what you don’t have that you forge.

Ajayi wrote on his social media page, “We should be clear. In the deposition made by Chicago State University, there was no place where the university said the certificate presented to INEC by President Tinubu was fake.

“The university insisted under oath that President Tinubu graduated with honours, and even at that, replacements for lost certificates are done by the vendor, not the university.
