Judge Nancy Maldonado U.S. Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago has restated the earlier ruling by Magistrate Judge Jeffrey T. Gilbert which ordered Chicago State University to release President Bola Tinubu’s academic records by tomorrow, Monday, 2nd October, 2023.

According to a trending document obtained by CITY LAWYER, Judge Maldonado reportedly warned that any request for stay of the judgement from Tinubu will be denied.

In a major victory for former Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Judge Nancy Maldonado of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois has ruled that Chicago State University (CSU) must release all documents about Bola Tinubu, the current President of Nigeria. The order includes all relevant and non-privileged documents, such as Tinubu’s admission records, transcripts, and any other documents related to his education at CSU.

Abubakar had filed a lawsuit in the US court seeking to compel CSU to release Tinubu’s academic records. He argued that the records were necessary for his case in Nigeria, in which he is challenging Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 presidential election.
