* Former minister says US order on CSU’s Tinubu record a disgrace
* Chidoka says national institutions failed
* Leadership across the board should be ashamed
Chief Osita Chidoka, a former Minister of Aviation says the order by a United States Court directing the Chicago State University to release the academic records of President Bola Tinubu to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is a national disgrace.
The former Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission said that it was something to worry over that agencies such as the Department of State Services, National Intelligence Agency, the Independent National Electoral Commission, and the Embassy of Nigeria with its staff in Washington DC could not unveil the academic history of the President, leaving the task for Atiku to do.
Mr Chidoka said this in a statement, on Sunday
“That all the aforementioned institutions allowed a man to be sworn in without definitive statements about his qualifications is a national tragedy. For 23 years, the issue of President Tinubu has been a recurring decimal in our national equation. Under his reign, a current youth corps member is serving as minister, and people under investigation by the EFCC and made public are sitting in the Federal Executive Council. And they all passed through security screening”
A United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois had ruled in favour of Atiku, and ordered that the Chicago State University should release President Tinubu’s academic record to the former vice president by Monday, October 2.
According to him, the leadership and relevant institutions of this country should bow their heads in shame, if eventually it was discovered the occupier of the nation’s number one office forged his certificates. He said that the development was both a national and international embarrassment to the country.
