Dan Nwanyanwu has speculated that President Bola Tinubu may not contest with his controversial Chicago State University certificate in the next presidential election.
Nwanyanwu, the presidential candidate of the Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) in the February 25th, 2023 election stated this on Thursday.
There has been controversy around the Chicago State University (CSU) of the President, which the opposition party alleged was forged.
The Supreme Court, however, threw away the evidence during the ruling, claiming that the petition was filed by Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) outside the timeframe of the law.
Nwanyanwu speaking on the widely delibrated issue in the country, in an interview on AIT said Tinubu might consider using his school certificate to contest for a second term.
The presidential candidate said, “Well if President Tinubu will be contesting another election, that will be a different page.
“It has nothing to do with this. Maybe at that time, in order to avoid controversies, I had aspirants who came to me; some said they were lawyers, some said they were this, they answered doctors, but when I was filing their papers, they said put school certificate.
“I said, But you’re a lawyer. He said, Chairman, leave that one. So maybe if President Tinubu is going to run for a second term, he may elect (decide) to say, Okay, to avoid controversies, put my school certificate.
“Even without the school certificate, you can run for president of Nigeria. So all you need to do is let INEC be convinced that you can read and write. I mean, what is this much ado about nothing?”
