Chicago State University on Tuesday morning, locked its official X handle from the general public after it came under torrent attack by angry Nigerians over the manner it has been handling the certificate saga of President Bola Tinubu.

A notification informing the general public that the institution had locked its X handle from the general public reads, “These posts are protected. Only confirmed followers have access to @ChicagoState’s posts and complete profile. Tap the ‘Follow’ button to send a follow request.”

The university’s decision to lock its account comes after the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party—PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, sought for a court approval to subpoena Tinubu’s files from CSU.

The former Vice President believes that the documents would clarify inconsistencies in Tinubu’s background, including publicly available records that suggest that CSU admitted a female student bearing Tinubu’s name in the 1970s.

Meanwhile, Tinubu in a swift move, filed a motion to prevent a federal court in the United States from releasing his academic records to Abubakar. The university has claimed that a clerk was responsible for irregularities on a certificate that was reprinted in Tinubu’s name.

Recall that Abubakar had mocked Tinubu on Twitter, asking him to disclose how he obtained a degree from CSU without attending primary and secondary school.

His tweet sparked widespread reactions, with the hashtag “#AskTinubu” trending on Twitter on Sunday as Nigerians deliberated on the President’s academic records.
