LThe Chicago State University (CSU) has confirmed in an affidavit that the Diploma President Bola Ahmed Tinubu submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is valid.

Atiku, the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 25 election, had requested the documents to back his allegation of forgery of the CSU certificate against Tinubu.

According to the affidavit obtained by the Nation, CSU confirmed the certificate and that of 1979 it presented to the President on graduation is valid.

CSU, in the affidavit it presented to the court in Chicago, said: ” Chicago State University provided a Diploma to Bola Ahmed Tinubu and subsequently provided a certified copy of that Diploma. Both are valid and authentic Diplomas of the Chicago State University.

”There are certain differences between the Diploma and the certified copy because all diplomas are signed by the current President/Board Chairman. There are also differences in the font and seal on the Diploma because the University updated its seal and font after the diploma was issued.

”The difference in the date of award on the diploma versus the certified copy is likely the result of human error. The graduation date on the certified copy is typed in manually by a person and can be inaccurate.”
