A former Minister of Sports and Youth, Solomon Dalung, has explained why he posted his academic records on social media last Saturday.
Dalung said he posted the academic records for public scrutiny.
Dalung, on the X platform, posted his 1990 West African Education Council(WAEC) certificate, Certificate of Call to the Bar, Bachelor of Law certificate and Master of Laws certificates he obtained from the University of Jos, Plateau State.
When speaking on National Television on Tuesday, Dalung clarified why he posted his educational records.
Dalung stressed that if anyone is dissatisfied, they can go to court to compel the University of Jos to release his transcript.
Even as he conveyed his respect for President Bola Tinubu and made it clear that he was not mocking him over the certificate issue, Dalung expressed his belief that the President’s team mishandled the situation, unintentionally making the problem worse.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) filed a lawsuit against Tinubu in a United States court, claiming that the President forged his Chicago State University certificate, which was submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission before the February 25 presidential election.
