Abuja (Sundiata Post) – A former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic People (PDP) in Lagos State, Babatunde Gbadamosi has reacted to the claim that President Bola Tinubu attended Government College, Lagos.
There have been some questions on the attendance of the President in the school, with claims indicating that he joined the school in 1970.
However, the said school was established in 1974, contrary to the claims that President Tinubu graduated from the school in 1970.
Gbadamosi in his reaction to the trending issue on his X account said he witnessed the first set graduation in the school.
The former governorship candidate further stated that Tinubu was not among the first set who graduated from the school in 1979.
He further stated that he was a mate with the late Jide Tinubu in the school, but it is almost impossible for him to be four years junior to Tinubu’s father.
Gbadamosi wrote, “I attended GCL from 1978 to 1981. My aunt was the Vice-Principal for at least one of those years. I can confirm that I witnessed the graduation of the first set in 1979.
“Bola Ahmed Tinubu was definitely not among them.
“By pure coincidence, the late Jide Tinubu was my classmate at Lagos State School of Basic Studies, Agidingbi, Ikeja, opposite Cadbury.
“I could not possibly have been just 4 years the junior of his father in secondary school, could I?”
