Atiku’s Aide Slams Tinubu’s Lawyer Over Position On Release Of Academic Records

Phrank Shaibu, the media aide to the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has tackled the coordinator of Tinubu Presidential Legal Team (TPLT), Babatunde Ogala, on the release of the academic records of the President Bla Tinubu.

Recall that the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ordered the Chicago State University (CSU) to release the academic records of President Tinubu.

Atiku had approached the court seeking to compel the university to release Tinubu’s records on the grounds that the documents would strengthen his suit challenging the president’s electoral victory.

On September 19, a US Magistrate Judge, Jeffrey Gilbert, granted the request and ordered CSU to release Tinubu’s academic records within 24 hours.

However, the president moved to block it by filing an appeal against the order, but a federal judge, Justice Nancy Maldonado, overruled Tinubu’s objections and ordered CSU to release the president’s academic records.

In his reaction to the ruling, Ogala said the academic records of President Tinubu would not be admissible in the Supreme Court for the purpose of prosecuting the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.

Ogala said the documents from the institution are valueless at this point in time, stressing that the president attended CSU.

Responding to Ogala’s claims, Shaibu wondered why Tinubu moved to block the release of his academic records if the release of the documents was meaningless and valueless.
He also questioned why the president appealed the release of his academic records if he did not have anything to hide.
He said: “Ogala claimed that the victory was meaningless. So, why did his principal try to block the release of his credentials if he had nothing to hide? Why did he also appeal the initial judgment?

“The Bible says only the wicked run when no one chases them.

“Why has Tinubu been blocking the release of his academic records for nearly 30 years?”
