Illinois, US – Judge Nancy Maldonado has reportedly ruled in favour of Atiku Abubakar, the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 25 presidential election, in his suit to have access to President Bola Tinubu’s academic records at the Chicago State University (CSU).

Atiku has secured an order from a Magistrate Court compelling the Chicago State University (CSU) to make available the academic record of President Tinubu, including his admission and acceptance letter. 

But Tinubu, in an appeal, got the nod of Justice Gilbert to stay the execution of the Magistrate court ruling that favoured Atiku, but the PDP presidential candidate has filed a counter-appeal on the judgment and was favoured by Judge Nancy Maldonado.
