A United States (U.S.) court has reportedly ordered Chicago State University (CSU) to release the academic records of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, within two days and also certify its authenticity under oath.
The federal court in Chicago on Tuesday night directed CSU to turn over all records relating to Tinubu to Atiku, saying the former vice-president has sufficiently satisfied the purpose for seeking the records.
Gilbert ruled: “For all of the reasons discussed above, Atiku Abubakar’s application pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1782 for an order directing discovery from Chicago State University for use in a foreign proceeding [ECF No. 1] is granted.
Naija News understands that this is seen as a significant victory for Atiku in his ongoing push to demonstrate Bola Tinubu’s ineligibility to be Nigeria’s president.
Recall that on August 2nd, Atiku had filed an application for the court to order CSU to produce documents relating to Tinubu, as well as leave to get the school’s administrators to authenticate any documents submitted under oath.
