Muhammadu BuhariThe Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has addressed a press conference in Kano where he spoke about the raging controversy surrounding his academic qualifications.

The press briefing was necessitated by an earlier statement credited to the spokesperson of the Nigerian Army, Brig.-Gen. Olajide Laleye, in which he confirmed that the APC presidential candidate’s documentation showed that he had credits in the relevant subjects: English Language, Geography, History, Health Science, Hausa and a pass in English Literature. Laleye, however, said the army does not have in Mr. Buhari’s personal file, the original copy, Certified True Copy (CTC) or statement of result of his WASC result.

Following the sudden turn around by the Army spokesman, who towards the end of last year, while the controversy about the former head of state’s academic qualifications was still at its infancy, said Buhari’s credentials were indeed with the Army authorities, the APC presidential candidate, in his press conference on Wednesday, directed his old school, Provincial Secondary School, Katsina (now Government College, Katsina) to release details of his West African School Certificate (WASC) exams.

Read his full address below:

Press Statement by General Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, on the School Certificate Issue

Good Morning, Gentlemen of the Press.

I only consented to address you this morning because of the genuine concern expressed by many supporters and other well-meaning Nigerians that the issue be addressed. Otherwise, I would have dismissed it for what it is – sheer mischief and would not have considered it an issue worth the nation’s while.

I had assumed all along that all my records were in the custody of the Military Secretary of the Nigerian Army. Much to my surprise, we are now told that although a record of the result is available, there are no copies of the certificates in my personal file. This is why I formally requested my old school the Provincial Secondary School, Katsina [which is now known as Government College, Katsina] to make available the school’s copy of the result of the Cambridge/West African School Certificate. This will be made available to the press the moment this is available.

However, before we obtain that, let me say for the record that I attended Provincial Secondary School, Katsina. I graduated in 1961 with many prominent Nigerians, including General Shehu Yar’Adua, former chief of staff at the Supreme Headquarters, and Justice Umaru Abdullahi, a former President of the Court of Appeal. We sat for the University of Cambridge/WASC Examination together in 1961, the year we graduated. My examination number was 8280002, and I passed the examination in the Second Division.

And although the ruling party may want to wish this away, the issue in this campaign cannot be my certificate which I obtained 53 years ago. The issues are the scandalous level of unemployment of millions of our young people, the state of insecurity, the pervasive official corruption which has impoverished our people and the lack of concern of the government for anything other than the retention of power at all costs.

Thank you very much.

General Muhammadu Buhari

  1. APC has been consistent in saying dat PDP has ruled Nigeria for 16 disastrous years in which corruption, impunity, insurgency, armed robbery and several ill society held sway.
    But at a very close luk at APC, I am seeing
    1. Rotimi Amaechi – 8years speaker, 7years Governor under PDP
    2. Atiku Abubakar – 8years Vice president under PDP
    3. George Akume – 8years Governor under PDP
    4. Bukola saraki – 8years Governor, 2years Senator under PDP
    5. Timipre Sylver – 4years Governor under PDP
    6. Audu Ogbe – 2years Chairmanship under PDP
    7. Aminu Masari – 4years speaker, house of Rep under PDP
    8. Chris Ngige – 3years Governor under PDP
    9. Rabiu Kwankwaso – 7years Governor, 3years Defense Minister under PDP
    10. El Rufai – 4years FCT Minister, 2years BPE chairman under PDP
    11. And to cap it all, Obasanjo is d Navigator of APC, a man who spent 8years of d disastrous 16years as d maximum ruler of Nigeria.

    Are they now saints cos d joined APC? Pls, b wise n Vote not 4 those seekin power by FORCE… ASSOCIATION OF PAST CRIMINALS (APC)

    • My submission to you is that there comes a point in the life of a nation when people realise how wrong they were and the consider that they have to change their ways for the sake of life after. they decide to follow the path of justice and equity. But so many like you and the Demonic folks in PDP and your evil Godless president do not care because their souls are sold to the devil and they do not believe in Judgement after life so they do whatever they like to oppress the people under them. unfortunately when they realise it, its too late. The so called people you mentioned were the most progressive minds in the PDP. they made their mark but had to leave honorably because darkness and light cant co exist. PDP will rather lie, use propaganda, rig and do whatever to be relevant. But the result is different when Almighty God steps into the ring for the sake of the suffering masses. This is what God will do during this period as the foundation of this country is being uprooted and a new foundation of truth is being laid. The foundation of our democratic experience has been lying propaganda, which is why the nation continues to go down in the midst of oil wealth. we have been served clueless and inept men, chief amongst them being GEJ. Sorrow not, the lord will give a leader, no longer in his wrath but in his mercy. GEJ, farewell.

  2. In dis age and time d presidential candidate of d APC Buhari has only WAEC certificate? Wat sort of backwardness is dis? Wen dere r educated ppl in dis country! Nigerians shine ur eyes n vote wisely.

  3. What else do they want to say again, the more they tried to hoodwinked this people general the more Allah bless him and add more to his fans. Let them bring another one, they have been put to shame. Smh.

  4. Shame unto PIG D P. Liars and looters. Your end has come. The fury of the God of heaven and earth is releasede against you. You will continue to stumble and misstep until The hook of jehovah rids this nation of your EVIL.
