Chicago State University provided a Diploma to Bola Ahmed Tinubu and subsequently provided a certified copy of that Diploma. Both are valid and authentic Diplomas of the Chicago State University.

This confirmation comes amidst allegations made by Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 25 election.
Atiku had raised concerns regarding the authenticity of Tinubu’s CSU certificate and requested access to the documents.
In response to Atiku’s request, the education records of Tinubu were released by CSU following a court subpoena.
These records, released on October 2, along with a deposition on Tuesday, have revealed discrepancies between Tinubu’s 1979 CSU certificate and the samples of certificates issued by the University to students in the same year.
