'Nothing to hide' - Dele Momodu shares old photos of Atiku with his classmates

Atiku Abubakar & Bola Ahmed Tinubu Atiku Abubakar & Bola Ahmed Tinubu

Dele Momodu, the publisher of the Ovation Magazine and spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Council in the 2023 election, has commented on the discrepancies in the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC)'s certificate of his boss.

It was recently revealed that the name on Atiku's WAEC certificate presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) carried Siddiq Abubakar, contrary to his name on the ballot paper.

The revelation followed the allegation by Atiku and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) camp that President Bola Tinubu presented a forged certificate of the Chicago State University (CSU) to the electoral body.

This has led to the quest for an explanation of the differences in name from Atiku and the PDP, but Momodu, in his reaction, shared the pictures of the former vice president with his classmates and shadowed the camp of the President.

However, Chicago State University confirmed in an affidavit that President Tinubu attended and graduated from the institution while sharing his transcript, but Momodu, in his tweet, posited that the controversies could be put to bed if President Tinubu could share pictures of his undergraduate days.

The PDP chieftain said: "Explanation is never tedious when you have nothing to hide.

"It is unfortunate that supposed Democrats resort to bullying and threatening opposition over what should not take five minutes to establish the facts."
