In a surprising turn of events, a 32-page document from Chicago State University (CSU) has ignited a storm of reactions on social media after it described Nigeria’s sitting President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as female in some sections.
The revelation came after CSU complied with a United States Court order to release President Tinubu’s academic records to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
Following the court order, CSU released the academic records of “Bola A. Tinubu,” which raised eyebrows due to a rather unexpected detail: the documents indicated that this student was female. The development has sparked widespread discussion and debate across social media platforms.
Several Nigerians took to Twitter to express their opinions and concerns about the discrepancies in the document. Some individuals were quick to question the authenticity of the records, pointing out apparent inconsistencies. For instance, @firstladyship highlighted that Government College Lagos, from which Tinubu purportedly graduated, was founded in 1974, whereas the documents claimed a graduation date of 1970.
@von_Bismack brought humor into the situation, suggesting that President Tinubu had “stolen” a woman’s identity, referring to the unexpected gender description in the records.
@InibeheEffiong expressed a more cynical view, suggesting that the revelations might not significantly impact the political landscape in Nigeria. They lamented the lack of national consciousness and moral values in the country’s politics, asserting that many Nigerians would continue to support politicians regardless of their actions.
@hardewuzy highlighted the gravity of the situation, emphasizing the confusion surrounding President Tinubu’s identity and its implications.
@officialose_007 questioned why opposition parties had not presented this evidence before the election, expressing skepticism about the timing and effectiveness of the information now.
@TheSerahIbrahim called for an official statement from the All Progressives Congress (APC) condemning the alleged forgery and fraud involving Tinubu. They implied that failure to do so would reflect poorly on the party.
@Ohijeme accused political forces of manipulating the media and the judiciary, calling for a stance based on facts rather than falsehoods.
This unfolding controversy has raised significant questions about the authenticity of the academic records and the potential impact on President Tinubu’s political career. As reactions continue to pour in, it remains to be seen how this revelation will affect the Nigerian political landscape.
