Buhari has no academic credential with us - Army debunks Buhari's claims

Muhammadu Buhari

"The Army can not keep anybody's original certificate because it is the personal property of the owner," a military source has disclosed, debunking the claims of former Head of State and Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) in an affidavit submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, that all his academic credentials were with the Military Board.

According to the source, the Military only kept photocopies of credentials of officers and soldiers in their personal files that were in the military secretary's office.

"The original certificate of any officer or soldier is only needed at the point of entry into the service either as a cadet officer entering the Nigerian Defence Academy, or the recruitment officers when interviewing recruits to be sent to the depot for training. That is so, because they are needed to verify what were in the photocopies supplied by them or from the necessary examining bodies."

The source further stated that anybody claiming that his original certificates were with the Military Secretary (Army), had ''ulterior motive(s) or something he or she cannot explain.''

Buhari is contesting the presidential election for the fourth time under different political parties including the defunct All Nigeria People's Party, ANPP and the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, but the issue of his qualifications had never been controversial until the ruling Peoples Democratribed him as a ''semi- illiterate.''
