"All politicians should allow Mr President to concentrate on the challenges confronting our dear nation Nigeria.

"Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, thank you for applying for Tinubu's transcript. Now, we need yours and that of Gbajue too."

Chicago State University speaks on certifying Tinubu's diploma
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Chicago State University (CSU) informed the United States (US) District Court for the Northern District of Illinois that it would not be able to certify President Tinubu's diploma under oath.
CSU's lawyer, Michael Hayes, told Judge Jeffrey Gilbert this during a recent court hearing.
However, a CSU spokesperson said the university can confirm the Nigerian president attended the varsity and graduated.
The spokesperson explained that the university cannot authenticate the diploma because it is a ceremonial document that is not part of a student's official academic file.
