Reno Omokri calls Rufai Oseni “a liar”

Reacting to this development via tweet, a staunch supporter of Atiku and the PDP, Reno Omokri, revealed that he had visited the CSU and the academic record of President Tinubu was made available Tinubu, thereby describing Oseni’s assertions as false.

He wrote:

“I physically went to Chicago State University and was given a document proving that what Mr. Rufai Oseni said was false. When I proved that he lied, he threatened to kill me and destroy me in a recorded phone call.

“Today, I again ask that Rufai Oseni should #PublishTheSubpoena or admit that he lied in a bid to manipulate the election in favour of Mr. Peter Obi.

“If our government will not do it, then it is incumbent on us to keep our media honest and corrupt-free. If we cannot trust our media, then we cannot have a genuine democracy.”

Similarly, it was gathered that the management of CSU responded to the claims of Oseni, confirming that Tinubu was indeed a former student of the highly revered institution.

Another publication by Farooq A. Kperogi also confirmed that President Tinubu was an ex-student of the institution with adequate academic records.

The publication was quoted saying:

“A friend, who is a professor of English at the university, went to the registrar’s office and confirmed that Tinubu indeed attended and graduated from CSU.”
