The Chicago State University has confirmed that presidential aspirant Bola Ahmed Tinubu is indeed an alumni of the University.
This is coming after a request was made to confirm if the former governor attended the tertiary institution.
The Punch reported that Beverly Poindexter, who is in charge of the university’s official transcript requests, enrolment and degree verification at the Office of the Registrar, CSU, confirmed that Tinubu was a graduate of the University in an email response to its request on Tuesday, January 25.
Poindexter wrote: “Mr Tinubu did attend our university, however, if further information is needed, go to studentclearinghouse.org website to make a formal request.”
The University had earlier confirmed that the chieftain was it’s student between 1977 and 1979.
This was stated in a letter dated August 20, 1999 and signed by the then Registrar, Lois Davis.
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.”
