Atiku files fresh suit in US Court over Tinubu’s academic records
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last general election, Atiku Abubakar, has filed a fresh case at the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, United States, against President Bola Tinubu after he withdrew an existing one before a circuit court in Illinois.
Recall that the county court in Illinois dismissed the suit filed by Atiku, seeking the release of the academic records of Tinubu at Chicago State University.
Atiku had dragged Chicago State University (the respondent) before the court, seeking an order compelling the respondent to release the academic records of Tinubu in its possession.
However, according to Phrank Shaibu, Special Assistant on Public Communications to Atiku, the dismissal followed his principal’s withdrawal of the suit.
Arisenews reports Shaibu stated this on Sunday in reaction to inquiries about the dismissed suit by the Circuit Court of Cook County.
Shaibu said, “Waziri Atiku Abubakar only withdrew the case before a Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois County, United States of America, because he was pursuing the same matter in a higher court and wanted to avoid abuse of court processes. So, this is just the beginning.”
He added that it was funny that Tinubu and his supporters rejoiced over the development as if it were a Supreme Court judgment.
