"Buhari’s academic certificate was forged"

The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation on Thursday alleged that the school certificate presented by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), was forged.

The Director of Media and Publicity of the organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode who made the allegation at a press conference in Abuja said the organisation is yet to contact the school that issued the certificate to either confirm or deny its authenticity.

Meanwhile the school Principal, Mr. Isyaku Bello reportedly told a PUNCH correspondent on the telephone that the certificate he signed was genuine.

"If they are doubting the result, then they should come and see the authentic copy and not the photocopy sent to us by the Cambridge West Africa School.

"We are here waiting for anybody doubting what we have sent out. We are not running away. Let them come and found out."

Nevertheless, Fani-Kayode still insisted that the document, which were released by the Ministry of Education, Katsina State and the University of Cambridge, was fraudulently procured.

He said those who authored the result must be arrested by the police and be prosecuted.

Fani-Kayode also called on Buhari to submit himself to the police to answer charges of perjury, alleging that the former Head of State lied on oath about his academic qualification.

This, he said, was what a man who "claims to represent integrity and due process ought to do in this situation."
