A public affairs analyst, Durojaiye Ogunsanya has waded into the controversy surrounding President Bola Tinubu’s certificate from the Chicago State University, United States of America.

There have been controversy over Tinubu’s credentials especially among members of the opposition parties who are looking for loopholes to get the President out of office.

A section of Nigerians have been wondering why the former Governor of Lagos State cannot point to anyone as his classmate while in the institution.

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar had also approached a court in the US, seeking access to the credentials of Tinubu at the Chicago University.

However, according to a video clip making the rounds on social media, Ogunsanya during an interview with TVC News, affirmed that the President and himself graduated the same year from the University in 1979.

He said, “We met in the school, Chicago State University and we were in the same department, College of Accounting Business and Administrative with a major in Accounting and we were in the same class together and we graduated.

“He did attend the University and he graduated in 1979 in the same year as I did. I am here to testify that he did attend University and he was a good student.

“I’m here with my Diploma, for the world to see. We graduated together from the university, I just want to set the record straight not for any gain or favour”.
