Chicago, USA - President Bola Tinubu's days as Nigeria's number-one citizen could be numbered, as the Chicago State University in the United States is reportedly ready to unveil his credentials during his days as a student of the institution.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in a tweet on Thursday, August 24, claimed that the institution has officially agreed that the credentials of Nigeria's president would be made available to the court.
Recall that the PDP and its presidential candidate in the February 25 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, have approached a US Court to compel the institution to release an acceptance letter, attendance, and other documents of the President's undergraduate days in the school.

But the PDP captioned its tweet:
"This is now official. The Chicago State University in the United States of America, in response to the application filed by the @OfficialPDPNig and its Presidential Candidate in the February 25, 2023 Election, @Atiku, has agreed to release the credentials of Bola A. Tinubu.
