Tinubu: Atiku Suffers Set Back in US

Ahead of the presentation of judgment by the Presidential Election Petitions Court in Abuja in the petition he filed against the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25, 2023 presidential election, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in that election, Atiku Abubakar, has suffered a legal blow in the United States of America (USA).

A Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois County in the US has dismissed the lawsuit filed by the PDP candidate to get access to President Tinubu’s confidential educational records at Chicago State University.

The former vice president had filed the suit seeking to subpoena the university but later withdrew the case.According to the Circuit Court papers, Justice Patrick J. Heneghan dismissed the case without prejudice.

In the judgment dated July 31, 2023, the judge held that the “Petitioner’s subpoena in this case is withdrawn, and thus Chicago State University will not be deposed pursuant to the subpoena in this case.”

Ruling on the matter, Justice Heneghan said: “The case is dismissed without prejudice and resolves all matters pending before the court.”Atiku had claimed that President Tinubu did not attend Chicago State University.

Meanwhile, a leading Chicago State official has again confirmed that the President is a long-time and distinguished alumnus of the university.In an affidavit, the Registrar of Chicago State University, Caleb Westberg, deposed that “Bola Ahmed Tinubu graduated and was awarded a degree by Chicago State University on June 22, 1979.”
