Falana Speaks On Tinubu’s Chicago Academic Records Suit In US



Human Rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has reacted to the move by President Bola Tinubu to stop the Chicago State University (CSU) from releasing his academic records.

Recall that the prayer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential flagbearer in the 2023 general election, Atiku Abubakar, before a Magistrate court in Illinois in the United States was granted, and the Chicago State University was compelled to release the academic record of President Tinubu to him.

However, Tinubu pleaded before a United States judge to save him from suffering “severe and irreparable damage” by placing an emergency hold on a recent Court order for his university records to be released.

Tinubu, through his lawyer, claimed that the damage he would suffer would be impossible to mitigate if the order directing the release of his academic records to former Vice-President, Atiku is not delayed for possible vacation.

While featuring on Arise TV, Falana said the private interest of President Tinubu could be protected in the suit.

According to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria, everybody in the United States has the right to plead privacy, and Tinubu would not be denied such right.

He said, “So if the President say, sorry, I don’t want my result, my details released, the court would have to consider the implication of that on Monday viz the request by Atiku Abubakar. In other words, the private interest of the President would have to be considered with that of Atiku Abubakar.”
