FCT, Abuja - The former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, said it is embarrassing to Nigerians that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is attempting to stop the release of his academic records at Chicago State University (CSU).
As reported by the Leadership, Frank stated this in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, September 22.
Frank’s statement is on the heels of Tinubu’s legal team’s move to appeal the judgment of the US court that ordered the release of his academic records within 48 hours.
It was gathered that Tinubu appealed to the US court that releasing his academic records would cause him “severe and irreparable damage”.

“If you know you have clean academic records why are you fighting to stop their being released?
“What ‘severe and irreparable harm’ will you suffer if the records are released?”
Tinubu tarnishing Nigeria's image - Timi Frank
Frank claimed that Tinubu's desperate act to cover up his academic records had cost Nigeria's reputation, and world leaders now avoid him, causing a severe problem for prospective investors and investments into the country.
He stated that the cancellation of the proposed meeting between Tinubu and Joe Biden at the United Nations General Assembly was a perfect example that he is being avoided.
Similarly, Frank noted that the false announcement by Tinubu that the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) had lifted the Nigerian visa ban was another pointer that Tinubu is being avoided.
Frank urged Nigerians to relentlessly ensure that President Tinubu produced his authentic Chicago State University certificate.
“This fight should not be for Atiku Abubakar alone. Nigerians must rise up and demand to know the academic records of their President.
“Tinubu’s desperate attempt to buy time with his recent appeal is a huge embarrassment to Nigerians both at home and in diaspora."
