Labour Party (LP) chieftain, Kenneth Okonkwo, has taken a jab at President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, over his certificate scandal.
Recall that Chicago State University had released Tinubu’s academic records following the requests by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The university, on Monday, presented to Atiku’s legal team, a cache of documents connected to Tinubu’s education at the institution and copies of certificates with redacted names issued to other persons about the same time the Nigerian president finished from the school in 1979.
It also contained the president’s admission records and a letter dated 27 June 2022 confirming that he attended the university from August 1977 to June 1979, majoring in accounting.
The letter said Mr Tinubu was awarded Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with Honours on 22 June 1979.
Reacting to the gender error in the certificate, Kenneth Okonkwo, during an interview with News Central, alleged that Tinubu is spending dollars to stop CSU from releasing his certificate, which should serve as a vindication of the accusation levelled against him.
He said, “Instead of celebrating the independence anniversary of Nigeria, in colours of white meaning peace and green meaning agriculture and vegetation, we are busy trying to unearth whether our leader is a female or male because physiologically and anatomically, we are seeing a male, but by document, we are seeing a female.
“What an international embarrassment that a leader who is talking about increasing the value of Naira is spending dollars abroad fighting a case that his certificate should not be released to the world. Someone is accusing you of wrongdoings, and your certificate would have been a vindication of yourself.”
