Former Head of State and Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the 2015 general elections, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has told the Independent National Electoral Commission that his academic qualifications and credentials are with the military.
This came to light on Monday when journalists visited the headquarters of INEC in Abuja.
Unlike those of other presidential candidates, whose academic qualifications were on display including President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Buhari’s own were conspicuously missing.
However, the development was better explained in an affidavit the APC presidential candidate deposed to before an Abuja High Court.
According to him, all his certificates were with the Secretary, Military Board. The affidavit was dated November 24, 2014 and was stamped and received by INEC on December 18, 2014.
“I am the above-named person and deponent to this affidavit therein. All my academic qualifications documents as filled in my presidential form, President APC/001/2015, are currently with the Secretary, Military Board as of the time of presenting this affidavit. The affidavit is made in good faith and for record purpose”, Buhari stated.
