Tinubu attended varsity, registrar tells US court



Bola Tinubu

Caleb Westberg, a registrar of Chicago State University, CSU, swore under oath on Tuesday that President Bola Tinubu attended and graduated from the institution in 1979.

Westberg also stated that the admission letter issued to the Nigerian President evidently proved he was a male and attended the school between 1977 and 1979.

He said, “There were materials in Mr. Tinubu’s records that show he was a male in the application to CSU. Mr. Tinubu identified himself as a male. His letter of admission identified him as a male. It says, ‘Dear Mr. Tinubu’”

His deposition was conducted in the office of Angela Liu, the legal counsel for former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, in Chicago, United States.

Liu’s legal team consisted of five lawyers from her firm who joined the legal proceedings on Zoom, while the CSU was represented by c.

Tinubu, on his part, was represented by Victor P. Henderson and Oluwole Afolabi.

Continuing his testimony, Westberg informed the court that the institution received five to thirty inquiries every day from people who badly wanted to know if the president actually attended the university.

He also disputed that his alma mater informed the former Lagos governor of any of the requests.

He said, “We believe Bola Tinubu, who attended CSU, is the same person who is the president of Nigeria today. Tinubu is an unusual name in the US. He matched the records in the file against the information provided by the student or on behalf of the student.

”We believe Bola Tinubu, who attended CSU, is the same person who is the president of Nigeria today. The university only has diplomas that students didn’t pick up in its possession.

“I have the diploma that was made available to Mr. Enahoro-Ebah in our possession because Mr. Tinubu did not pick it up. I do not have the diploma that was submitted to INEC in our possession because he picked it.”

When probed further to confirm if the the Nigerian President that enrolled at the school was a male or female, the registrar insisted, that “Tinubu applied to the university as a male, and a letter of admission was issued to a male.”
