The Independent National Electoral Commission last Friday published the credentials of candidates ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The particulars of the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in the past few days have been a significant point of discussion.
This is due to the failure of the former Governor of Lagos State to provide information on his primary and secondary education.
Tinubu in the document which was shared by the electoral body ahead of the 2023 presidential election stated his occupation as ‘politician’.
The APC National Leader further stated that he obtained a B.Sc degree in Business and Administration from Chicago State University on June 22, 1979.
According to Tinubu, he participated in the compulsory national youth service from November 12, 1982.
On the issue of his certificate, Tinubu swore to an affidavit that his certificates are missing.
He stated, “I went on self-exile from October 1994 to October 1998. When I returned I discovered that all my property, including all the documents relating to my qualifications and my certificates in respect of paragraph three above, were looted by unknown persons.
“My house was a target of a series of searches by various security agents from the time the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was forced to adjourn following the military takeover of the government of 17th November 1993.”
Some documents gathered by Premium Times show the date of birth of the APC Presidential candidate and other important details.
Tinubu hopes to take power from President Muhammadu Buhari at the end of his tenure in 2023.
