Tinubu graduated from our institution in 1979 - Chicago State University confirms

The Chicago State University (CSU) has again confirmed that President Bola Tinubu attended the university and graduated in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree. 

CSU made this known in a statement issued to CBS Broadcasting Inc. generally referred to as CBS News on Thursday, September 14.

The institution, however, said that it was restrained by the United States federal law to provide any further information about Tinubu’s record, without consent or unless allowed to do so via court order.

“As an educational institution, we are sometimes asked to provide information related to student records. Federal law known as FERPA (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) protects the privacy of student records and limits what an institution can release.

In August 2023, a request was made to the U.S. federal court for the university to provide information related to educational records concerning Bola Tinubu, the President of Nigeria, and a former CSU student.

The university has confirmed Tinubu attended CSU and graduated in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree. Federal law, however, prevents us from providing any further information without consent or unless allowed to do so via court order.

CSU is confident in the veracity and integrity of our records regarding Tinubu’s completion of graduation requirements and degree certificate. The university is not a party to the Nigerian legal proceedings that spurred this request, and a U.S. federal judge will determine whether the university will provide further requested information.

Our response to the request for Tinubu’s academic records has been entirely consistent with our practices, policies and federal law. We would respond in exactly the same manner for any request for any student information by a third party.” the statement read

Recall that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, had alleged that documents revealing that Tinubu graduated from Chicago State in 1979, were not original, and had highlighted it as grounds to nullify Tinubu’s election victory.

People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better.
