Chicago State University: How President Tinubu Embarrassed Nigeria, Oby Ezekwesili Speaks Out
A former Nigerian minister, Oby Ezekwesili, has questioned why President Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not “instantly and voluntarily” ask the Chicago State University to publish his academic credentials.
Mrs Ezekwesili stated that President Tinubu should have “led by example” to remove all doubts. Tinubu has been under public scrutiny for months over the certificate he obtained from the Chicago State University. The former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili, has said President Bola Tinubu embarrassed Nigeria “by not instantly and voluntarily asking the Chicago State University to publish his academic credentials”.
Ezekwesili lamented that some Nigerian leaders “despise transparency” — which she posited, is not ideal.
The ex-minister asked well-meaning Nigerians to “demand a root and branch reform of the entire electoral and judicial systems” in the country.
