The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has addressed the controversies concerning his age, school and work history, Njenje Media News reports.
Tinubu provided these answers while speaking at Chatham House in London, UK on Monday.
The former governor of Lagos State noted that he was born on March 29, 1952.
He bragged that those who disputed claims that he’s from the Tinubu family should request for a DNA test.
On his academic and work records, Tinubu claimed he has received his original certificate from Chicago State University.
He also said Mobil Oil has attested to his outstanding record.
Tinubu said: “At the time of birth, I was dated March 29, 1952. Then, I don’t think I’d decided to be President of Nigeria, not even that I would go into politics.
“My record is consistent in the university they questioned. The record is there, and the transcript is there showing March 1952.
“I’m not claiming another father. I’m Tinubu and Tinubu proper. If they want to conduct a DNA, they could as well request for one.
“Chicago State University where I graduated has now attested to that. I can announce that I’ve received my original replacement degree certificate from them.
“Deloitte trained me as an accountant. Mobil Oil has attested to my outstanding record. I got to the pinnacle of my career in the private sector. Who among them can brag about that?”
