In the Statement of Result available to the public prio to the 2015 presidential election, which bore the name Mohamed Buhari and carried a stamp dated 21/01/2015, eight subjects were recorded for the President. However, in the result presented to the President on Friday, only six subjects were recorded.

The 2015 Statement of Result carried credits in the following subjects: English Language, Hausa Language, Literature-in-English, History, Geography, Mathematics, Health Science and Wood Work. But Buhari recorded ‘F9’ in Mathematics and Wood Work; could that be the reason the two subjects were missing from the certificate presented to him on Friday, November 2, 2018? The answer, we subsequently found out, is ‘yes’.

Mr Buhari has been criticised by opposition politicians and many other Nigerians after he told the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that his school certificate is still with military authorities.

The president stated this in his submission of essential forms to INEC for the 2019 elections where he is the presidential candidate of the ruling APC.

His spokesperson, Femi Adesina, in a tweet from his verified handle said “WAEC presents attestation certificate and confirmation of school cert result to President Buhari. What will the naysayers say next?”

The criticism of the president over the certificate is in the build up to the 2019 general elections where he seeks to be elected for a second term in office.

Mr Buhari experienced similar criticism in the build up to the 2015 general elections when he was then an opposition presidential candidate.

Inestigation showed the president sat for the school certificate examination with this newspaper exclusively publishing results garnered during the examinations.

Mr Buhari later joined the army where he rose to the rank of major general before retiring in 1985 when a military government he led was overthrown in a coup.

INEC on Thursday pasted names of 70 out of 91 political parties fielding candidates for presidential elections in 2019, including Mr Buhari.

The commission is expected to publish a full list of candidates of political parties today.

Instead, he insisted the documents are in custody of the military.

He attached an affidavit to support his claim.

“I am the above named person and the deponent of this affidavit herein. All my academic qualification documents as filled in my Presidential form, APC/001/2015 are currently with the Secretary of the Military Board as of the time of this affidavit,” the affidavit reads.

Meanwhile, the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku submitted relevant documents, with a Diploma in Law in 1969 from the Ahmadu Bello University being his highest qualification.

The former vice-president also attached tax returns indicating that he had paid N10.8m in tax from 2015 to 2017 while declaring his income within the period as N60.2m.

Mr Atiku is Mr Buhari’s major contender in the forthcoming election.
