There were reports in the media that the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s real name is Yekini Amoda Ogunlere.
The report claimed that Tinubu changed his name over the years to what he currently bears has gone viral.
A Facebook user, Jackson Ude, had on Sunday made a post on a page, Nigeria Cycle, alleging that Tinubu had another name on his primary and secondary school certificates.
The post reads: “Bola Tinubu’s real name is: Yekini Amoda Ogunlere from Iragbiji Osun State. That is what is contained in his primary and secondary school certificates and that’s why he has refused to tender them before INEC.”
Recall that the APC leader served as a legislator and governor in Lagos State with the name, Bola Tinubu.
There is no sufficient evidence to support the claim that Bola Ahmed Tinubu changed his name in the past for whatever reasons and he has always held that he is from Lagos State.
Tinubu’s real name is Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu (born 29 March 1952) .
