2023: Tinubu Addresses Controversy Surrounding Educational Background

Bola Tinubu has spoken on the controversy trailing his educational background, insisting that his birth, academic, and professional records are consistent.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate who spoke at Chatham House in London, United Kingdom added that his critics are only wasting their time and resources.

When quizzed on the inconsistencies surrounding his formative years, Tinubu called the question "inquisitive" and stated: "At the time of birth, I was dated March 29, 1952”.

“I’ve had a very good exposure in life, my record is consistent in the school, in the university, they (critics) are now convinced that they wasted their money and their time.

"The record is there, the transcript is there showing March 1952", he added.

While insisting that he is a proper member of the Tinubu family, the former Lagos governor, he dared anyone to come and ask for a DNA test from him.

“I’m not claiming another father, I am Tinubu and Tinubu proper. If they want a DNA, they could as well request it from us.

"One of them has even been accused of not being a Nigerian citizen, I didn’t touch that area.

“Equally, it remains the same, Deloitte, Chicago State University where I graduated from has attested to that.

"Now, I can announce that I have received my original replacement degree certificate from them."
