Babatunde Gbadamosi said he schooled in GCL

Babatunde revealed he schooled at Government College Lagos (GCL) from 1978 to 1981 and his aunt was a vice principal then.

He said he witnessed the graduation of the first set, saying Tinubu was definitely not one of the graduands.

In his words:

"I attended GCL from 1978 to 1981. My aunty was the Vice-Principal for at least one of those years. I can confirm that I witnessed the graduation of the first set in 1979.
"Bola Ahmed Tinubu was definitely not among them.
"By pure coincidence, the late Jide Tinubu was my classmate at Lagos State School of Basic Studies, Agidingbi, Ikeja, opposite Cadbury.
