Lauretta Onochie, President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on social media, has dismissed claims that Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate has no certificate.
Onochie described the news that Tinubu has no primary and secondary school certificate as fake.
In a post on Facebook, she recounted how President Muhammadu Buhari was accused of being an illiterate who was cloned.
She linked the accusations against Tinubu to those campaigning for other presidential candidates.
Reports had it that Tinubu informed the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, that his certificates were stolen by unknown persons during the military era.
Tinubu, however, noted that he obtained a degree in business and administration in 1979 at the Chicago State University.
With the emergence of such a claim, some Nigerians had insisted that Tinubu never went to school.
Reacting, Onochie wrote: “DEM GO HEARAM, I’m not sure why they cannot manufacture a different line of lies.
