My Birth, Academic, Work Records Are Consistent, Tinubu Insists At Chatham House

Written by on December 5, 2022

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu on Monday insisted that his birth, academic, and professional records are consistent, adding that his critics are only wasting their time and money.

Tinubu, 70, stated this during an appearance at Chatham House in London, the United Kingdom. He spoke on the topic: ‘Nigeria’s 2023 Elections: Security & Economic Development and Its Foreign Policy Imperatives’.

There has been controversy over the early days of the former governor of Lagos State but Tinubu said his detractors can request a DNA test to validate that he is indeed a scion of the Tinubu family.

Asked to clear the air on some of the issues surrounding his formative years, Tinubu said the question is “inquisitive but at the time of birth, I was dated March 29, 1952”.

“I’ve had a very good exposure in life, my record is consistent in the school, in the university, they (critics) are now convinced that they wasted their money and their time. The record is there, the transcript is there showing March 1952,” he said.

‘I’m Tinubu Proper’

Tinubu insisted that he remains a proper member of the Tinubu family, slamming an unnamed presidential candidate accused of not being a Nigeria.

The APC presidential candidate said none of his contenders can match his professional records which he described as “outstanding”.

The former Lagos governor was at the world-leading policy institute and think-tank alongside the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai and his Jigawa State counterparty, Abubakar Badaru; former Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi; amongst others.
