U.S. District Judge Nancy Maldonado has agreed to postpone the requirement for Chicago State University (CSU) to provide specific academic documents related to Bola Tinubu, who currently serves as the President of Nigeria.
Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Gilbert had issued an order two days ago, mandating that CSU submit these documents by the end of Thursday. However, during an emergency hearing on Thursday, as reported by CBS news, Judge Maldonado instructed both sides’ attorneys to submit additional arguments by the following Thursday.
The legal representatives of the Nigerian President contended that Judge Gilbert’s decision needed a thorough review by a district judge. Judge Maldonado granted their request and pledged to make a prompt ruling after reviewing the arguments.
“I will have a busy weekend.
“The issue is of process and rules. I’m a rule person; that’s why I’m a judge. This case is quite involved. I am aware of the stakes. It’s more important to me to get this right,” she held.
To recap, Tinubu had submitted an Emergency Motion to the Chicago Court, requesting a postponement in the release of his academic records until at least Monday, September 25th.
Previously, the Chicago Court had directed Chicago State University (CSU) to provide all records related to Tinubu’s time as a student to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar within a two-day timeframe.
Atiku is firmly asserting that Tinubu’s claim of graduating from Chicago State University lacks authenticity. Consequently, Atiku filed an application aiming to obtain the documents as evidence that the Nigerian leader was not eligible to run for the presidential election during his tenure.
