Nigeria2015: Buhari is qualified, APC insists; cites another law

Muhammadu Buhari

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has defended the academic qualification of its presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, citing new legal details after the Nigerian Army denied it has copies of Mr. Buhari’s certificates as he earlier claimed.

The Constitution requires a minimum of secondary school certificate or its equivalent for election to the office of the president.

But amid intense debate over Mr. Buhari’s academic suitability, the APC said in any consideration, the former military leader remains very qualified for the election.

The party quoted part IV, Section 318 of the Constitution which interprets “School Certificate level or its equivalent” as follows:

(a) A Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent, Grade II Teacher’s Certificate, the City and Guilds Certificate; or

(b) Education up to Secondary School Certificate Level; or

(c) Primary Six School Leaving Certificate or its equivalent and –

(i) service in the public or private sector in the Federation in any capacity acceptable to the Independent National Electoral Commission for a minimum of ten years, and

(ii) attendance at courses and training in such institutions as may be acceptable to the Independent National Electoral Commission for periods totalling up to a minimum of one year, and

(iii) The ability to read, write, understand and communicate in the English language to the satisfaction of the Independent National Electoral Commission, and

(d) Any other qualification acceptable by the Independent National Electoral Commission;

The Army had earlier admitted having copies of Mr. Buhari’s certificates. But on Tuesday, the spokesperson for the Army, Olajide Laleye, reversed that position.

Mr. Laleye also said there were no records that the army in the 1960s verified Mr. Buhari’s claim to have attained a Senior Secondary Certificate.

In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, APC accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and President Goodluck Jonathan, of attempting to compromise the army, describing the move as “a dangerous game” that could destroy the military.

The party urged the military, as a symbol of national unity, to beware of those who may be seeking to use it to achieve selfish and divisive ends.

It said the statement credited to Mr. Laleye, a Brigadier General, that the army is not in possession of Mr. Buhari’s certificates, is in direct conflict with what he said on January 4 on the same issue.

”In an interview with the Punch on Jan. 4th 2015, Brig.-Gen. Olaleye said: ‘Every serving and retired Army officer has at least a copy of his certificates and credentials kept in the Nigerian Army while that same serving and retired officer has copies of those same certificates and credentials’.

”Is Brig.-Gen. Olaleye now saying that he did not make that statement? If he did, what has happened between then and now to make him to recant? It will be interesting to know what has transpired between then and now,” APC said.

But more worrisome, the party said, is the statement credited to Mr. Laleye that there was no evidence that the certificates of all those who joined the army in the early 1960s were verified by the selection board.

”Is he now saying that all those who were commissioned into the officer cadres in the 1960s did not have their certificates verified? Does this not confirm what we said that in trying to destroy Gen. Buhari, the PDP and the Jonathan Administration will end up destroying the army as an institution? Or is it only Gen. Buhari that was commissioned into the army in the 1960s,” it said.

The party also quoted Mr. Buhari as saying in an affidavit on 24/11/2014 that ”All my academic qualifications documents as filled in my presidential form, President APC/001/2015 are currently with the Secretary Military Board as at the time of this affidavit.”

”Those who are behind the latest controversy should now tell Nigerians what happened to Gen. Buhari’s certificates between the time of his affidavit and now,” it said.

The party said since Mr. Laleye has now confirmed that Mr. Buhari indeed applied to join the Army from form six, that the principal of the school he attended even attested to his suitability, and that the form he filled contained his Secondary School Certificate results, there is no scintilla of doubt about his qualification to run for president as stipulated by the Constitution.

”However, we know that the PDP and the Jonathan Administration have constituted themselves into a court of law and will like nothing more than the disqualification of our candidate so they will face no challenge in next month’s election. This is wishful thinking,” it said.

On the contradictions in the statements credited to the Army spokesman, the party said: ”It is true that our once globally-respected military has now been made comatose by the PDP-led Federal Government, but we believe things have not reached the level where the same military will be engaging in actions that amount to self-destruction, just to satisfy some political interests.

”We believe things have not reached a level where we, as a nation, will now be giving the impression that a man who rose to become a Major-General in the Nigerian Army does not have requisite qualifications?

”What really is happening in our country if some politicians have now decided to engage in an action that will amount to dragging the military into politics, dividing an institution that is a symbol of national unity, trivializing the service of those who fought to keep Nigeria one and ridiculing the same country it is supposed to be ruling?

”We have said it before and will like to repeat: Enough is enough about this distraction orchestrated by the PDP and the Jonathan Administration whose electioneering campaign for next month’s polls has suffered a train wreck,” the party said.

    I have been saying this thing. Nothing good can ever come out of a country of thieves; nothing good.
    Even the national Constitution of Nigeria says ‘primary school’ is the equivalent of ‘secondary school’.
    “Nigeria is not a country,” said the country’s first Minister of Aviation, Mbazulike Amaechi, lately.
    “It is not a country where people can live to survive. Nigeria is a place ruled by criminals and thieves,
    as well as by those who believe in plundering and looting.”

    • Babandum

      Read more carefully. It says secondary school or primary school + any of those subsections.

  • Olufemi

    Why is APC like this. It simply means the one he presented in 1961 was forged. I don’t think Lai mohammed should blame this on the military or PDP. The military is clear with their message. “there was no evidence that the certificates of all those who joined the army in the early 1960s were verified by the selection board”. The only thing I expect APC and general buhari to do is to prove the military wrong. Is PDP the reason he can’t provide the certificate. As much as I am not in support of any candidate, I want every letter and word of our constitution observed.

    • Wähala

      Shut up! C’mon shut up your dirty Aboriginal mouth of slimy snail meat… just shut-up dia! Edyiot. There’s no law in Nigeria today that can thwart the peoples’ wish, none whatsoever so, again, sharaaapu… Olosi!

          Both balls so I can make sure you never rape any woman again in your miscreant life. Bet nah, if you’re so sure Buhari will be disqualified even by the courts. Who born monkey teach’m to mimic man? Bet if you have nuts… drunkard!

      • juchi

        You have gone nuts. If like shut him up for 20million times, it won’t prove GMB certificate . Preacher practise what you preach.

        • Wähala

          Ask the PDP to go to court if they have a case, why are you sweating over another man’s qualies…
          Go to court let’s contest the edict there. You’re so daft you can’t even write your name properly yet, you’re there questioning another man’s educational backbone. Fact remains, Buhari is in the race to win it and your moron is headed for The Hague!

  • Benny

    Liar Mohammed, with all these your “turenchi”, why don’t your principal (Buhari) just do the needful. Let him abide by the provisions of the Nigerian Constitution and submit the copies of his credentials. Abi Buhari tore his certificate in conformity with the Boko Haram ideology?

    • PROF

      Buhari please show your certificate !Ok fine , show us ordinary photo copies ? I would have voted for you , but i am doubting that you even went to kindergarten 🙂

  • senghor2013

    All the same its GMB all d way. Anyway I like olaleye for one thing . His report on GMB cert is biconditional. As it averred that indeed GMB go to school. BT his cert his missing.

  • Wähala

    Simply put, Prof. Jega is the Judge & Jury of Gen. Buhari’s qualification to seek to become President of Nigeria, and guess what? Jega will not in his wildest nightmare contemplate disqualifying Buhari while previous INEC Chairmen considered him qualified for the office he seeks… Shikena!

  • King Carlos

    Wait…shey Obasanjo get certificate? Lol.

    I think Jonathan and PDP are doing more to discredit the army as an institution, than what they are doing to damage Buhari’s candidacy. Jonathan shouldn’t let people like Fani Kayode and Omo Ale Doyin Okupe to do further damage to the country that Jonathan met in peace. If they are sure of their candidate, they should face Buhari at the polls. This is about protecting Nigeria as a country in the eyes of the world.

    The army general doesn’t know the damage he has done to the country as a whole. He said to the whole world that people that enlisted in the 60s were admitted ‘illegally’. Which brings us to the illegality of many things that has been done by those officers. In trying to bring down Buhari, they want to discredit thousands of patriotic officers that served the country diligently with their lives.

    At this level, Jonathan is desperate to hold on to power, but the fact is , if it was for Jonathan alone, he prefers to retire in Otuoke because he doesn’t want trouble. But this is being perpetrated by cabals who don’t want to stop milking the country. This is a revolution for us, we have to reclaim our country.

    Unfortunately for them, this election has been settled. Majority don’t care if Buhari has it or not, because, a Phd holder president has done no good. The people have the final say and they have decided to say SAI BUHARI.

  • BREAKING NEWS

    THIS IS GETTING TOO ABSURD AND TOO EMBARRASSING ……. APC IS LOOSING CREDIBILITY AND GOING DOWN THE DRAIN SIMPLY BECAUSE OF ONE MAN ……. IS BUHARI BIGGER THAN APC .

    • Wähala

      Mind your business, why not worry about your Aborigine presido who got stoned in Katsina today than another man’s headache… Go swallow APC!

    • Okey

      My anger is, they demonized Atiku with unfounded allegation, did a gang-up against him and landed in this mess. Go through Atiku’s Policy Document delivered in his declaration at the Yar’Adua Centre, you will come to realise that nobody in APC prepared for the job more than Atiku.

  • Jude

    @ Olufemi:

    APC IS MORE OR LESS A CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION

    APC is a criminal organization of thieves and perjurers inured to shame. Why did APC wait for the Army’s
    press conference, before shamefully eating its words that Muhammadu Buhari has a Master’s degree?
    Professor Itse Sagay’s nonsensical public intervention in that wise is the worst historical self-disgrace.
    Thank God for the Nigerian Army. We now know as a fact that Buhari does NOT have school certificate.

    So much for change; so much for APC – a party full of Alhajis – signifying nothing.

    The APC in pursuit of illiteracy now changes the topic that Buhari’s primary school education plus his military
    training, are equivalent to “secondary school education”, But that’s a mere suggestion, not a legal conclusion.
    If INEC, in its sole discretion answers that suggestion in the negative, no court can re-qualify Buhari to contest.
    That is the law which the slew of crooked thinkers suffusing the APC still cannot discern by verbal reasoning.

    • victo amadi

      By APC sightings the constitution then it turn criminal? What’s wrong with you people? What of common stealing is not corruption?. Isn’t it more criminal? You son of fayose?

  • victo amadi

    He SUIS Buhari. Nigerian army you are disgraced and you are boko haram fighters.

  • share Idea

    Now I know why Obasanjo refused to sign FOI bill.
    It is under Jonathan, that we know majority of the big men in Nigeria can’t deliver their polling unit to their relevant parties. Because of FOI, INEC changed their forms, real and integrity people are now obvious to many.

    Scientific way of fighting corruption is far more effective than mouthing eradicating it on campaign trail. GMBH pls prove to Nigerians and the world at large that you mean running a transparent government by first showing us your certificate. If it can take you this long to address Nigerians transparently on true state of your certificate, what chance do you have in understanding complex accounting reports for a parastatal like NNPC which you promised to run transparently…

    • Onike24

      Scientific way? Biko what is the scientific way? May God forgive you people.

    • Adelove5070

      lets share an idea, one step b4 another, Jonathan can try test his corruption technology device on Oduah, D A Madueke, oil subsidy scandal, NNPC and foreign reserve missing funds. thereafter others will follow,

      • share Idea

        If you remember one of Jonathan’s points during his campaign flag off in Lagos, he acknowledged that his generation has failed Nigeria, but went on to lists how he intends to improve the current situation, scientific approach as one effective way. That is a mark of a leader. Compare that with GMB, that believes that his the only incorruptible person since Nigeria began, yet can not come clean on a matter as little as certificate.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    Every qualification obtained by Buhari while he was in the military is null and void because they were based on a fundamental illegality . If for instance one is found to have forged a certificate in O’levels and used it to obtain a university admission and degrees,any day the O’ level fraud is declared illegal,the university will cancel all certificates obtained which were based on the original forgery .

    Secondly,there is a clear case of potential perjury with regards to the INEC affidavit in which he declared that ALL his qualification documents were in the possession of the Army,we all now know that that was a pure lie. We also know that he did not meet the basic requirements for enlistment into the military as it were.

    The APC should have been meticulous in vetting the candidate,this is a self inflicted injury which they have themselves only to blame. Nigerians have moved on,this is the 21st century and we cannot afford such dubious behaviour from a man who claims to be the saint of anti-corruption. Buhari has to face court action where he can disprove all the allegations against him. No orchestrated press conference will do,there is nothing he can say that we do not know already. THE MAN IS A FRAUD,HE HAS TO THROW IN THE TOWEL NOW AND SAVE ANY LITTLE CREDIBILITY HE MAY BE ABLE TO GARNER !!

    • endingNaija

      We must make this clear. Nigeria’s thieving couple must be arrested NOW. they are Diezani Alison Madueke and Goodluck Jonathan. Between them they stole $20b of NNPC money. More importantly, Nigerians need to INVESTIGATE the background of Diezani Alison Madueke. there are emerging facts about this woman who together with Jonathan stole $20b from NNPC. We need to investigate her NOW!

  • Okey

    It is shocking that drooling as made here by Lai Mohammed could be made in a country that has normal human beings who are eager to “Chang.” for nation the better. Even going by the half-truth he presented here, it is obvious that Primary School Certificate or its equivalent is not the minimum requirement for the office Gen. Buhari is vying for. The minimum is Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent. Buhari has none.

    Now, Section 131 (1) (d) does not and cannot avail Buhari. “Qualifications” after military training is not and cannot be “any other qualification” as stated here. He was not at all qualified to enlist into senior officers training (NDA) by 1962 but got there through undue influence and cover-ups. His is akin to somebody who got admitted into the University with fake credentials or without the required qualification, later had Bsc, Msc, and PhD. But when the fraud was detected, he pleaded his BSc, MSc, and PhD as “any other qualification.” That cannot stand, if at all, it proves evidence of the original fraud. And mark you, from INEC’s publication, Buhari filled “WASC” as his “qualification.”

    That Gen. Buhari entered the NDA with “a Letter of Recommendation” from his principal as “entry qualification,” such principal having promised thereon that Buhari “will pass” his secondary school certificate examination is established. That with that and upon finishing his cadet training, Buhari made an entry (i.e. claimed) “I now have School Certificate” but kept no copy as proof has also been established. Need we be reminded that that was an era when “I am a Northerner” served as sufficient “qualification” for some Nigerians.

    Gen. Buhari should now show the world his “WASC” certificate as claimed in his INEC form or its CTC or mere photocopy of it which can be matched off with records at WAEC – records of 1961 and 1962 examination and those who wrote the examinations are there in WAEC. He has an obligation to produce his claim. He has IMMUTABLE duty to do this or simply excuse himself from this election exercise as he obviously is not qualified as a presidential candidate. This he must do in order to prevent the blood of the baboon (the rich) and that of the monkeys (the poor masses) from being spilled on the streets of Nigeria if he truly loves this country. He has an obligation to stop putting this country on the edge. Honour and patriotism (i.e. anti-corruption) dictate that he does the needful now.

    • CONCERNEDCITIZENFOREVER

      Remember when during the first presidential campaign of Obama, the republicans were running a negative campaign concerning his relationship with a radical Chicago based pastor. The said pastor was accused of being a racist, and by association Obama was being labelled a racist. After weeks of negative campaigning against his person, Obama made a televised explanation of his relationship to the pastor, which became a case study of race relations till date. It also marked a turning point in his presidential campaign. His popularity rose from then on. Pushing Buhari to the wall, and giving him an opportunity to over an explanation that will be watched by millions of Nigerians via free televised publicity 9:00am tomorrow will catapult his popularity mark it

      • Okey

        Don’t rant about what you do not know. Before that election, Obama was accused of not being born within a territory of the United States and therefore not an American citizen and ineligible to re-contest; that his first election was a fraud. Obama quickly made open his Birth Certificate which showed clearly when and where he was born.

        Gen. Buhari has only ONE DUTY which is to show the WASC result he claimed in his INEC form. If the original is missing, he can approach WAEC as the names of those who sat for WAEC in 1961 or 1962 are there in the records of WAEC. It is just as simple.

    • endingNaija

      There are serious family and health issues we must face squarely.The news is that there are no children between patience Jonathan and Goodluck Jonathan. The news is that some children are passed on as “First Children” of the “First Family”. Time to talk. Who are the fathers and mothers of these ‘First Children” on who money of Nigerian tax payers is spent? What health issues take Patience Jonathan and Goodluck Jonathan abroad all the time on which they spend Nigerian money? And more importantly this the time to start the prosecution of Nigeria’s thieving Couple-eye popping damsel Diezani Alison Madueke and Goodluck Jonathan for stealing $20b of NNPC money. They must NOT be allowed to leave power without facing the law.

    • A.A

      Now, concerning real education, your Dumbo president had equally been challenged to produce this PhD thesis , which was suspected to have been plagiarised. Because Mr. Dumbo speaks only dumb and grammatically corrupted English that no real PhD holder can be associated with that. Or perhaps, Mr. Dumbo must bought his certificate at….. you know where.

    • Adelove5070

      OKEY! save your peace, Do you believe with me that this is conspiracy by PDP and Jonathan, firstly Buhari sworn into an affidavit that some of his documents including his educational credentials were carted away while he was in detention. can’t all these lazy minds people goes further to the primary and secondary schools Buhari claimed including scrutinizing the record archives of WAEC from 1960 to 1963.
      By me certificate is none issue as best as we can acertain every contestant to be of sound mind, medically fit, people of integrity and has the interest of the whole nation at heart.

      • Okey

        The whole essence to have “people of integrity” as you said here. That’s “anti-corruption.” We cannot have one law for Nigerians and a separate one for a few others. That is the worst form of corruption.

  • endingNaija

    This is the time to intervene on all these. And this is my take. Nigeria has a THIEVING COUPLE and CRIMINAL GANG ruling us for SIX years. This thieving couple is Diezani Alison Madueke and Goodluck Jonathan. Together they stole $20b of NNPC money. They must be arrested NOW. But the EFCC is too WEAK to arrest the couple. The global community must help Nigeria. Anytime Goodluck Jonathan steps out of the country he must be arrested with his couple for stealing $20b of NNPC money.

  • Uhuru

    @ Wahala, I did not want to dignify your below zero IQ by replying to your puerile comment but permit me to say that you are unfortunately a cretinous lowlife. Instead of addressing the issue you expend your energy lobbying insults indiscriminately at people who just happen to disagree with you. If we all believe that PDP is unduly milking the situation for political gains, Buhari should save us all this unnecessary distraction by duly presenting a verifiable certificate. If he has hoodwinked INEC in the past and now found out (if indeed he is without qualification), then he should own up and step aside. Rules are rules and should not be bent for anyone no matter how highly placed that person is in the society. The APC hierarchy should just oblige the demands of PDP and focus on attacking GEJ and his failed administration.

    • Adelove5070

      @Uhuru, I don’t want to join issues with anybody, but my question for you is this. Is paper qualification [be it fake, purchased or worthless results] better than physically able human being blessed with abundant wisdom by GOD, rather than Dr of Animals?

        @ Adelove 5070, I don’t think you quite grasp the magnitude of the question you are asking me. Are you telling me that you will disregard a job spec and the educational prerequisite that goes with it because you have got God given wisdom? Just listen to the dross you are spewing.

    We need to arrest Nigeria’s THIEVING COUPLE now. They are Goodluck Jonathan and Diezani Alison Madueke. We beckon on the Global Community to step in NOW. Between the two they have STOLEN $20b of NNPC money. We also need to INVESTIGATE the background of Diezani Alison Madueke-especially the university she claimed she attended in the US. We need this on record. This couple are thieving couple. And the International Community must step in NOW!

    This is the time Nigeria needs the International Community most. Nigeria’s thieving Couple have stolen Nigeria dry. We do not know the source of the 20b Naira Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Fund. But news is that it is traceable to the $20b Diezani Alison Madueke and Goodluck Jonathan STOLE from NNPC. Nigeria EFCC is too WEAK to prosecute these two people.

    Nigeria’s money to the tune of $20b is in the hands of the thieving couple Diezani Alison Madueke and Goodluck Jonathan. They stole this money from NNPC. They must be made to vomit this money before they leave power. Diezani Alison Madueke relegated Patience Jonathan to official wife of Jonathan, we know that. But we want the DUO of Diezani Alison Madueke and Goodluck Jonathan prosecuted for stealing our $20b from NNPC. More imprtantly this is the time for Goodluck Jonathan to come CLEAN on who the fathers and mothers of the children he passes publicly as his children are. Are their real mothers and fathers in Nigeria or outside Nigeria? Beside Patience Jonathan, does Goodluck Jonathan have other wives who are mothers of these children and on who Nigerian money is spent and we do not know. Time to talk and come clean on these family issues.

    ”The Constitution requires a minimum of secondary school certificate or its equivalent for election to the office of the president.

    But amid intense debate over Mr. Buhari’s academic suitability, the APC said in any consideration, the former military leader remains very qualified for the election.

    The party quoted part IV, Section 318 of the Constitution which interprets “School Certificate level or its equivalent” as follows:

    (a) A Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent, Grade II Teacher’s Certificate, the City and Guilds Certificate; or

    (b) Education up to Secondary School Certificate Level; or

    (c) Primary Six School Leaving Certificate or its equivalent and –

    (i) service in the public or private sector in the Federation in any capacity acceptable to the Independent National Electoral Commission for a minimum of ten years, and

    (ii) attendance at courses and training in such institutions as may be acceptable to the Independent National Electoral Commission for periods totalling up to a minimum of one year, and

    (iii) The ability to read, write, understand and communicate in the English language to the satisfaction of the Independent National Electoral Commission, and

    (d) Any other qualification acceptable by the Independent National Electoral Commission;”

    By these definitions, EVERYONE in my village is QUALIFIED to be the PRESIDENT of Nigeria. My question is: WHY DID THE CONSTITUTION WRITERS NOT SIMPLY SAY: ANY NIGERIAN IS QUALIFIED TO BE THE PRESIDENT and not Waste so much ink if that was Their INTENTION?

  • ModyHH

    Buhari filled INEC form and declared therein that he obtained WASC. He also stated under oat that his academic credentials, meaning WASC, are with the army. The army has now categorically come out to deny that. So let Buhari present WASC certificate or be charged to a criminal court for prejury like a common criminal. All these definitions of APC that primary school is equivalent to secondary school and all what not are just long grammer and only show a party in disarray. Bye Bye Pa Integrity. Now one can understand what was meant when Babangida ironically said that Buhari has more courage than the rest of the former generals. What he meant to say was “stupidity”.

    ……SECTION 137 (1) 1999 CONSTITUTION

    • General Buhari, did you commit perjury or not by filling the Army Form 1999A
    shortly after 18th October 1961, wherein you intentionally but falsely wrote that

    examination as of the date you filled that Army Form, or at any time afterwards,

  • Tabugbo

    On the column for qualification in the INEC nomination form, Bokohari wrote WASC (a minimum of Division/Grade 3 as graded then). The law required his attaching evidence of that qualification (WASC) to the INEC form. He did not. That made his nomination form incomplete and invalid. Rather, he swore to an oath that the certificate was with the Army Secretary, and the Army have told the world there is no WASC certificate in Bokohari’s service file with them, contrary to what Bokohari claimed and swore to. Now, APC wants to shift the goal post again. If he had any other qualification, why did he not mention it in the form. Above all, if Bokohari and APC cannot get a presidential nomination form right, is it not a joke to say they can get Nigeria right? With the deadline for changing presidential candidates gone, APC will have no presidential candidate February 14.

He did not because he did not have it. His life has been a scam since 1961.

        How do you further interpret the claim by Bokohari to have “WASC” as qualification? On that basis, bringing up further qualifications equivalent to school certificate does not arise since he claims and has sworn that he has the real thing. Candidate Bokohari, according to INEC’s final list of presidential candidates, claimed that his qualification was WASC. Where is the evidence? It has been a case of bla, bla, bla; an army of liars bringing up one claim or the other. Keep moving the goal post.

  • Benjamin Ebeshi

    Buhari sworn to an Affidavit claiming his credentials are with the Army.
    He went as far as making entries of his WASC on the Army entry form, yet could not provide a copy of the so called certificate. By Mr Lie Mohammed’s admission that Buhari is still qualified with any other qualification other than WASC indicates that Buhari has no any minimum qualification to enrolled into the NA in the first place (even though he made entry of his school cert results on the enrolment form). Further more he deposed to an Affidavit that his certificates are with the Army, which further complicate the issue at hand after the later’s denial. Infact this is a clear case of Perjury (Lying under Oath). In sane societies he
    would have immediately disqualify himself from the race to allow APC
    produce another Candidate. However, they hypocrites in APC will urge him
    on and declare that a carpenter is better than a PhD. With all these,
    where is Buhari’s anti-corruption credentials for which APC anchors’ its campaign on? If you are not faithful in
    little things, how can you be faithful in bigger things? When the
    Foundation is faulty what can the righteous do? I ask Lie Mohammed, why not call a spade a spade for once? Buhari’s credibility is seriously at stake Sentiment
    apart this Man is abysmally unfit to vie for the Presidency. He should
    swallow his pride and take a school cert examination. No amount of
    grandstanding can solve this problem. QED

    Civilized Nations are not built on Sentimentalism but on the RULE OF LAW.
    It is the Rule of Law that differentiates a Modern Society from a Jungle. Laws separate Barbarians and Savages from cultured Citizens….
    In Law, there is a Maxim that states: “ex nihilo nihil fit”, this translates to: “Out of nothing comes nothing”. It means that you cannot build Something on Nothing. The implication of this Fundamental Principle is profound and far-reaching.

    For instance, to become a Professor, you need to have a PhD. To have a PhD, you need a Masters Degree. To have a Masters Degree, you must have a Bachelors Degree. And to have a Bachelors Degree, you must have the required O’Level Qualification.
    Now, if as a Professor, it’s discovered that your O’Level Certificate was forged or insufficient, your Bachelors Degree may be withdrawn, and then your Masters Degree, your PhD and finally your Professorship (all in that order). This is in line with the Rule of Law that “you cannot build Something on Nothing”.

    Now, if after 25 Years of “active service”, you rise to the position of the Engineering Director of an Engineering Company and it was later discovered that you were employed with a fraudulent Engineering Degree Certificate, you may not only relinquish your Position but may also face Criminal Prosecution.
    This same Principle applies to Lawyers, Medical Doctors, Teachers, Accountants and Everybody including Members of the Armed Forces. This brings us to the raging Issue of Buhari’s School Certificate Saga.
    The Rule is very clear on the Requirements for Entry into Nigeria’s Armed Forces. If it is established that Buhari had been fraudulently admitted into the Military without the basic Requirements, he may not only lose his attained position as a Major General (rtd.) but may also be made to refund ALL the Salaries and Emoluments he has illegally received. And even get some Jail time for Fraudulent Misrepresentation.
    You see, Muhammadu Buhari’s Certificate Saga goes beyond the 2015 Elections, it goes way beyond Parochialism. It is an Issue of the Rule of Law – and the Fact that Buhari is NOT above the Law.

    1) Let’s be very clear about one thing. If what the Army says is correct, then Buhari has committed Perjury. It is as simple as that. Buhari said under oath that copies of his WASC credentials are with the Army. The Army has now said they don’t have it. Even if Buhari is qualified under these other laws quoted by APC, the man has committed Perjury and that is enough to morally if not legally disqualify him from being the President.

    2) APC has quoted a law which stipulates the equivalent of secondary school certificate. The problem here is that Buhari did not indicate any of those as his education qualification in the form he presented to INEC unless APC is disputing what INEC published for Buhari which clearly stated WASC. It was on that basis that Buhari swore to an affidavit.

    3) If APC doesn’t want to lose this election, APC should look for another candidate to replace Buhari. Of course, it is possible that this has been the game plan of some elements within APC i.e. tell Buhari this will go away when they knew it wouldn’t so that when it blows up in Buhari’s face, Buhari will either lose or be forced to step-down.

        1) In my first bullet point, I did say ‘If what the Army says’ is correct. So I have left room for doubt.

        2) Secondly, if you go back to the January 4 article you are referring to, you will see that the Army personnel spoke in general terms. He said (I’m paraphrasing here) – the army has credentials of all serving and retired military officers but what they have are photocopies; he said any officer can request for copies of what is in their file. He didn’t say they have checked and confirmed they have copies of Buhari’s certificates. Part of this confusion is the way our media reports stories. Like Sahara Reporters which had a headline that Army confirmed having Buhari’s documents.

        3) Now the army has said based on specific enquiries, they have checked their records and they do not have the original of Buhari’s WASC certificate (in the earlier statement, they said they do not keep originals), photocopy or certified true copy.

        Anyway, Buhari says he will address this issue tomorrow. If he comes and says he gave all those documents to the Army, then it becomes a matter of ‘he said, she said’.

        Personally, I have not heard of where someone submits his originals to an agency and the agency retains the original

          Mr. Mayo, that you left room for doubt was simply an affirmation that you doubt the credibility of the NA. If you do doubt it, then you cannot chose when to believe the same.

          The NA was specific with the word ALL on January 4, 2015. Should we then presume this organisation is no longer consistent or simply compromised on the altar of partisan politics?

          Just on an aside, with all due respects, I suspect you are not as old as Mr. Buhari – neither am I – but can you produce your Primary School leaving Certificate, if you ever had it?

          • Mayo

            NO, it doesn’t mean that I doubt the credibility of the army. It is simply because I’m aware that there is still remote chance that the army is lying, the keyword here is remote. Personally, even without the statements from the military, I find the claim that an organization is with the originals of someone’s certificate suspicious. I also found it suspicious that Buhari couldn’t apply to retrieve these original copies but had to go and swear an affidavit. But still with my suspicions, I have left room in my mind to be proven wrong.

      Mayo,

      How do you even think of perjury when the article clearly says that the army has changed their position several times?

      • Mayo

        Guguru, I believe you have been following this story. Are you telling me you honestly believe the army has changed their position several times? Let’s start with the basic – how many times has the Army spoken about this? Only twice. Since when did 2 become several times?

        Secondly, go back and read the original report from the Army. You will clearly see the Army has not changed their statement.

        • Guguru

          Yes, I have evidence that the army has changed their mind as reported by Premium Times. If you have any other fairy tale you want to share with us, then share it.

    This is the sort of shameful games that Jonathan plays. Can anyone actually tell us if Jonathan has a PhD., and if he actually has a thesis for his PhD.? Consider Jonathan’s poor communication and then match it against his claim against having a PhD. Consider Jonathan’s penchant for lies and then match it against the smear campaign against Buhari.

    Secondly, where is the Price Water Cooper forensics of the missing $20 billion which Jonathan said would be published by November 2014?

    Thirdly, What happened to the ceasefire with Boko Haram and what happened to Jonathan’s promise that Boko Haram would be over by December 2014?

    Fourthly, Where is Jonathan’s promise to provide electricity to Nigeria to the tune of 5000 MW by December 2014?

    Fifth, Jonathan promised not to run for election in 2015. Why is he running?

    Jonathan said in the Vanguard of February 2011, Titled, “I’ll not contest in 2015”

    “I would have loved that the Nigerians in Diaspora vote this year but to be frank with you, that is going to be difficult now. Presently, the law does not allow the voting outside Nigeria and so this year Nigerians in Diaspora will not vote but I will work towards it by 2015 even though I will not be running for election.”

    Do these guys know that a lot of Nigerians are practicing Lawyers? Any average sophomore would know that what forms the basis of the decision in this instance is the statement: “The Constitution requires a MINIMUM of secondary school certificate or its equivalent for election to the office of the president.”

    The phrase “minimum or its equivalent” forms the basis of the decision in courts. In law, we call it ‘ratio decidendi’ . What APC is trying to say is that a primary school certificate and some yrs of public service suffices. This is mere ‘orbiter dicta’ in legal parlance and will certainly not form the basis for clearance because nowhere in Nigeria is a Primary certificate an equivalent to secondary certificate, rather it is an obvious prerequisite.

    CONCLUSION
    APC has no option but to quickly look for someone else or ask Bhuari to begin intensive external GCE classes. Never too late to learn.

      Your interpretation of this provision of the constitution is rather strange, i think the “or” clearly staes that Primary school certificate plus public service etc an equivalent. I will have to admit that this means he is qualified to stand for election i.e if we rightly infer that Primary school certificate is a prequisite to secondary school attendance (already confirmed by the principal’s letter).
      Having said that, we must realise that the real issue here is with GMB claiming WASC via an affidavit (a clear case of perjury). Why for heaven’s sake does he have to that? He kind of shot himself in the leg.
      What I do not know is if and how he can be disqualified in a court of law based on this perjury arguement without first convicting him of perjury in a court of law (need further education on that), for sure it is a criminal offense.
      In any case, this is bad market for APC. A very huge political burden.

What confused me is why GMB went ahead to declare WASC (which he doesnt seem to have) in his submission to INEC when all he had to do was declare he truly has and would still be qualified. Yes, he is qualified to contest and yes i believe he is competent to rule, but what do we do with this alleged perjury case? What does it imply to his candidature?

As a General in the Nigerian Armed Forces,The position of an Armed Forces Military General in a country is equivalent to a civilian college Professor. That is why they give retired Armed forces General in United States Of America Tenured Professorships lecture positions and strategic courses to teach at both undergraduate and post graduate level in Universities in America and other developed countries.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Buhari is a Nigerian and Nigeria is a country of law. The law must be applied equally to all Nigerians irrespective of societal status. Buhari swore an affidavit under oath stating that he could not submit his “WASC” certificate to INEC. Buhari went further to claim that “ALL” his academic qualification records were in the possession of the Nigerian Army.

      It has since been confirmed that the Army has denied having the said documents and as we speak there is no documented evidence that he has a WASC certificate to his name,not the originals,not the photocopies,not the statement of result, no exam numbers,no reference numbers…….just a letter of recommendation from his teacher.

      I therefore put it to you that in the absence of Buhari providing the aforementioned certificate,a potential criminal offence of perjury may have been committed and his enlistment in the Army will remain flawed to that extent as well since he did not meet the minimum enlistment requirement as it were.

      In view of a situation where buhari cannot prove otherwise,Nigerians have a right to demand that he throw in the towel and allow the democratic process to move forward while he faces the obvious legal issues arising from this scandal. The Nigerian electorate also demand an explanation from the APC to prove that the poor vetting job done on Buhari’s candidacy was not purposely orchestrated to defraud the electorate into making a wrong choice at the forthcoming polls.

          I have two points to make in this rebuttal :

          1. The issue at state is perjury

          2. It is pertinent to mention that whatever certificates obtained in the course of Buhari’s military career may have been based on a fundamental illegality since his enlistment in the military remains suspect.
          It is therefore imperative that these career “qualifications” may not be tenable if the law of the land is applied.

        My dear friend Mr. Tawanda Incommunicado,go aand read the Nigerian constitution section 4, page 318,it is clear that Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has requisite qualifications over the years that we do not even need to go back to his WASC or GCE ordinary level education time. Hmmm Tawanna Incommunicado you be olodo/mumu,l am.sorry to say excuse my language l don’t mean to disrespect you,but you did not even read my write up in depth before you shout certificate controversy or palaver. I said the General Muhammadu Buhari is technically equivalent to A civilian University Professor. When l said that did tou think.l so not understand or comprehend oe articulate ny thought. Please original piece again. Gen Muhammadu Buhari is protected to his presidency on May 29th,2014,All this your certificate drama is just last minute dance of a failing masquerade >>>PDP And Mr Goidluck Jonathan on his way to reirement from Nugerian presidency. No amount of smear campaign,permutaions and combination by PDP evil strategists,master planners and tacticians,will be equally met,just a matter if days ro decision time. Nigerian s will decide on February 14th,2015. Just persevere.

            Never mind their responses, they are all delibrately avoiding the perjury angle to satisfy their ego. Its funny how they keep saying go to court; one might as well tell them to go to court when any issue bothering on corruption or certificate scandal crops up againt GEJ or any of his officials. I have not seen APC in court over any of the numerous corruption allegations againt GEJ govt. (which is even the basis for their campaign) yet they want us to just go to court. Whatever happened to their popular saying that “if it were in a civilised society, he should have resigned and surrender himself for prosecution”. I prefer to reply to you because of the empty responses i have received from my previous posts. I do not to believe that they are that daft, its just a delibrate and politically inclined position they took.

            @PREMIUMTIMES has obviously tampered with the postings made in the above exchange.That I find very unethical and unfair .

            I made it specifically clear that as long as Buhari’s enlistment process in the army remains flawed and suspect ,all other career qualifications obtained in the army can be deemed to have been based on a fundamental illegality.

            If for instance one used forged or non-existent O’level certificates to gain entry into a university and in the process obtained degrees,once it is proven in a law court that the O’level was flawed, all other certificates obtained instantly become untenable when the law of the land is applied.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Buhari has to stop playing games and come clean,this phony piece of paper concocted by the Katsina school is a non-starter.

            1. Buhari claimed to have graduated in “division 2……Before a “Division 2” is awarded as it were the candidate must pass English and Maths in credit levels then an additional 3 subjects from the arts and sciences.

            2. “Mohammed Buhari” was on the piece of paper but the Buhari we all know is “Muhamadu”

            3. Katsina state never existed as an entity in 1961 so this is clearly not the original or a copy of the original which should be in the custody of the school.

            This piece of paper is unacceptable,it is an insult on our collective intelligence as a people.My late father’s original Cambridge certificate of 1957 is still in our family vault and I know exactly how it looks.This development is worrisome and must be subjected to a meticulous investigation after which legal proceedings must follow !!

Give a Nigerian a degree and he thinks he knows it all.Whenever you meet them thet talk too much and are too loud. With the amount of Masters and PHD piling up in this country (even from the best unis in the world) you would expect us to even lead Africa in everything and stand out in the world too. Unfortunely thats not the case. In developed nations a PHD is less important to experience.. Unless u want to be in academics or research. Employers will rather choose a diploma holder with 10 years working experience than a master holder with no experience at all…does Obama have a PHD? Does it means GEJ is smarter and more efficient than him? Too much ado about these nonsense about certificate.

    INEC approved Buhari’s credentials for two elections. How can they suddenly say he is not qualified on the third attempt at the Presidency? Impossible. This is simply a losing game for Jonathan and his minions.

    • endingNaija

      Guguru, it is so obvious. This is the narrative. There were no questions the last time because Mr. Jonathan thought he was strong against Buhari and the drunkard successfully used religion against Buhari last election. And actually, before we all started the campaign, Mr. Jonathan’s team thought they were strong against APC in this 2015 election. But when the campaign started and given the sophistication of our message to the Nigerian people, Mr. Jonathan and his team if he has any honorable one panicked. The indications of the panick are as follows-(i) use religion to divide Nigerians(recall the stooooopidity about “Yoruba Christian/Muslim” and how he gave the fake “pastor” Bosun Emmanuel oil money to produce the campaign materials that one produced), that move failed (ii) use ethnicity-that move failed, then Buhari/Osinbajo emerged, Goodluck Jonathan people know they do not have anything on these two gentlemen, so (iii) use age against Buhari-again the move failed, (iv) use religion against Buhari-call him “Islamist”-it failed (v) cook up health, fabricate medical report (Mr. Jonathan really got sickening and sickly on that, )use “health” against Buhari-that move failed again, (vI) latest one is use qualification. Remember also that this stoooooopid Jonathan team that was selling Jonathan as “Christian” candidate began to ridicule Osinbajo and the position of VP when Osinbajo emerged. But these people -the Jonathan people are finished and GONE. They have money, we have the brains and the people. We will contest this thing exhaustively. If the man-Mr. Jonathan is running on incumbency, then the election is a REFERENDUM ON HIS SERVICE TO NIGERIANS. Goodluck Jonathan is scared stiff to present a score card-but that is what Nigerians want to know. And on that he FAILED and Mr. Jonathan is gone. He is only biting his teeth.

      • Guguru

        Thanks for the great points.

    • Mayo

      1) INEC did not approve Buhari’s credentials in the prior elections. It is the job of the political parties to clear their contestants and present a single contestant to INEC.
      2) Even if INEC cleared Buhari on 2 previous occasions, are you saying if they now find they had a loop hole and decide to fix that loop hole in the next election, it is a crime?
      3) The head of INEC in the first election in which Buhari contested is different from the head of INEC in the last election in which Buhari contested so you can say the INEC head is doing things differently.

      • Guguru

        Myo

        Lousy argument. Loophole now and not then? So, what is the point of having INEC rules then? What has the head of an institution to do with the consistency or inconsistency of the institution? So, APC has cleared their candidate, so what is the problem then? Did you leave your brain on your office desk before making this silly argument?

        • Mayo

          Yes, I left my brain on my office desk.

          By your argument, if Buhari comes into power and decides to arrest corrupt people who have been practicing corruption during the days of GEJ, we should tell him those people cannot be arrested. After all it is the same Nigerian Government (though different leaders) and so there is no need for Buhari to do things differently from a previous administration. In addition, if the police arrest someone who has been stealing without being caught all this while, the Police should release the person. After all the Police did not catch him all this while he has been stealing

  • Rems Onuoha

    The 2 comments of the Army on this issue for me is in order. the first statement on 4th January is a blanket statement for all retired and serving officers and that statement remains true to date in that under normal circumstances the Army would have at least copies of certificates of all serving or retired officers. In Buhari’s specific situation the Army have done their search and have found that contrary to norm it does not have any form of certificate for Buhari instead it has recommendation letter from Provincial Secondary school principal and result entered in the form by Buhari or his relatives. I do not see what wrong the Army has done here. APC are the ones dragging Nigerian Army into politics and will do well to leave the Army out of politics. If Buhari needs his WASC results he should approach WAEC and not the Army. I am sure WAEC can issue him a copy of his result if he has one!

      if you do not like it then exercise your freedom, go to hell and bury your citizenship of Nigeria-period-

      part IV, Section 318 of the Constitution which
      interprets “School Certificate level or its equivalent” as follows:

      (a) A Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent, Grade II Teacher’s Certificate, the City and Guilds Certificate; or

      (b) Education up to Secondary School Certificate Level; or

      (c) Primary Six School Leaving Certificate or its equivalent and –

      (i) service in the public or private sector in the Federation in any
      capacity acceptable to the Independent National Electoral Commission for
      a minimum of ten years, and

      (ii) attendance at courses and training in such institutions as may
      be acceptable to the Independent National Electoral Commission for
      periods totalling up to a minimum of one year, and

      (iii) The ability to read, write, understand and communicate in the
      English language to the satisfaction of the Independent National
      Electoral Commission, and

      (d) Any other qualification acceptable by the Independent National Electoral Commission;

      • Ken

        The question is: which one did he say he has? The documents have been filled. He has run foul of the law as we speak. he claimed what is not. He lied on oath, which is perjury. he lied on affidavit that his certificates are with the Military Board when that is a lie. And come to think of it, which employer would take that insult by referring them to your previous place of work for your certificates? GMB has no integrity as claimed!

    • Ken

      Very correct! He should visit WAEC.

    • Okey

      Yea, even when you write WAEC to cross-check a certificate or statement of result, if the document or claim in question is fake, WAEC usually write back to the effect that, “We cannot confirm having xyz result in our records.” It is a polite way of saying “That cliam is false!” So the Army is absolutely in oder.

  • Guguru

    The degree of desperation by Jonathan to hurt Buhari will be directly proportional to the extent of his failure in the election in February 2015.

    • Favnat John

      Wake up guru.
      What is so difficult in getting the result from WAEC? You as a student what will you do if a company needs your certificate?Let me tell you how simple it is.
      Go to Waec office they have all your solution if really you sat for any of their exams

      • endingNaija

        What should you be doing here this morning instead of being in court if you are aggrieved?

    • dykoko

      Very correct

    • Isi Agwo

      Bokohari has hurt himself since 1961, when he started his life as a forger. What a scam.

        Be quiet!

  • OLUWATOBI

    No matter the distraction The CHANGE all the way…

      We have change already! GEJ is the real change we need.

        With his partner-Diezani -right?

  • Shuaibu Bola Victor

    I NEED A REASONABLE DEFENCE TO THIS PROVISION OF LAW BELOW:

    A person shall not be qualified for election to the office of President if he has
    presented a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
    ……SECTION 137 (1) 1999 CONSTITUTION

    • General Buhari, did you commit perjury or not by filling the Army Form 1999A
    shortly after 18th October 1961, wherein you intentionally but falsely wrote that
    you had obtained specific credits in English, Geography, History, and, Hausa
    (with a pass in English Literature) when, in fact, you did not sit for any WAEC
    examination as of the date you filled that Army Form, or at any time afterwards,
    which (inferred) perjury was compounded by the affidavit you swore in the year
    2015, stating falsely on oath that you sat for WAEC exam in 1961 and got
    WASC certificate – being an intentionally false statement; and, tantamount to perjury,
    in so far as you never sat for WAEC exam or obtained any score in any subject?

    • endingNaija

      Do you know where to prove that? The court of law. Go there. We all will meet. That is when you will know that Goodluck Jonathan and his partner-Diezani Alison Madueke are finished politically and morally. After we unmask them, we will see the couple -Jonathan and Diezani Alison Madueke Jonathan to Otuoke

      • Shuaibu Bola Victor

        Prepare your files.

  • Ken

    Apc is very amusing! The Army has never said it has Buhari’s certificate. What the Army said initially was that the certificates are not with them; later the Army said it has the records of all its personnel. Now, they have checked and found out that they don’t have the original or photocopies. As far as GBM filled WASC as his qualification and now no such certificate exist; he has violated the rules.

    • endingNaija

      Can you read? Here is what the constitution says:

      You do not like it? Go to Togo and live there!

      quoted part IV, Section 318 of the Constitution which

        He put it, black-and-white, in his INEC form that he has “WASC” as his “qualification,” not “equivlent”. He MUST produce his “WASC,” certificate, even a mere photocopy of it. WAEC is there and they, WAEC, have not said its 1961 or 1962 records are missing as well.

    • Onike24

      That is a lie

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Buhari needs to be dismissed retroactively from the Army and arrested without delay. He has been a criminal since 1960 or earlier!!!

    • endingNaija

      And the Thieving Couple? Diezani Alison Madueke Jonathan and Goodluck Jonathan? What should we do with these criminals , these thieves?

  • Shuaibu Bola Victor

    There are too many ills to the GMB’s certificate defence. They are really amusing. I will be glad to hear these grounds of defence in a court of competent jurisdiction during trial.

    • endingNaija

      That is the best way to be, and not the online gossips-okay.? Go to court. From there we will start the unmasking of the Thieving couple, the thieves and criminals Diezani Alison Madueke Jonathan and Goodluck Jonathan

      • Shuaibu Bola Victor

        GMB has no integrity. A person without school cert cannot preside over the affairs of a country of over 165 million people in this 21st century. God forbid. It is against all social standard in any part of the world.

    Always cry like baby all time.DSS is Alleged Minor Registration as APC member, instead to take those pictures and tell Nigerians that;those pictures members are not ours they where there pointing finger to PDP.What a Party!!!
    What is so difficult for APC? is it to walk into WAEC head Quarter and get the result out or what.We are talking of just getting Original result from WAEC Which is a job for 12years child and they are here pointing finger to PDP.

    • endingNaija

      Do you like this? here it is: It is the constitution-the supreme law: That is the backing for Buhari’s qualification. Any other thing Goodluck Jonathan is only biting his teeth and you guys are only getting paid from the 20 Billion Naira Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Fraud!

  • John Okafor Chuddy

    The danger to Nigeria is not GMB after all he is a semi-illiterate. The danger is APC who rented buhari to ride on the sentiments of the poor masses from north to get them to the presidency. Its laughable that In the twenty first century a presidential candidate of a major opposition who wants to take power from an incumbent can only boast of primary education and at worst can’t even back up the claim with a mere certificate and APC has the morality to by citing law to institute a day deformed man? Its sad and pathetic

      Over to PDP. They should go to court

      • Shuaibu Bola Victor

        It is necessary.

  • BREAKING NEWS

    KNOW THE CRUX OF THE MATTER

    Buhari claimed in his INEC Form that he has WASC and also went ahead to swear an affidavit that all his academic qualifications are with a non-existent Secretary to the Military Board.

    The Nigerian Army has debunked the ridiculous affidavit viz: “Neither the Original Copy, Certified True Copy (CTC) nor Statement of result of Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s WASC result is in his personal file.

    The onus is on Buhari to produce copies of his academic qualifications including his WASC or go to jail for perjury

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Buhari couldn’t even fill out his name properly in his Nomination Form (a CTC of which is currently in my possession).
    SAMPLER:
    SURNAME: MOHAMMADU BUHARI
    FIRST NAME: NOT APPLICABLE!
    (as filled by the Islamic Fundamentalist).
    Buhari is not only a criminal, but also a stark illiterate.
    Nigeria itself is a huge scam.

  • Buhari_is_Boko

    Buhari LIED simple. NO WASC certificate. The issue is no longer qualification to contest, it is that of Forgery and perjury

    • Etim Udoh

      That Bokohari was unable to fill the form correctly was INEC’s fault. They should have had Hausa and Arabic versions of the nomination form.

  • mike

    A general in the Nigerian army us equivalent to a masters degree. If the Nigerian Army and and the general himself have lost copies of these credentials, fine. That still cannot controvert the fact the man has been a general in the N A.
    If the pdp cannot take that then let them go to court.
    The president got to office through good luck. Tell me, what kind of qualification is good luck. This change that is coming to Nigeria cannot be stopped.

  • Man_Enough

    it has been the nigerian army that has kept this country united up to this very moment. any person or group of persons who attempts in any way to destroy that sanctimonious state of affairs for any purpose is not only wicked but doing a great disservice to his fatherland. any officer of the nigerian army who allows himself to be used by a politician or anybody for that matter is not worthy of the lofty uniform he wears or is he worthy to remain a citizen of this beloved country nigeria.

    • Tufiakwa

      The man who asked INEC, a political institution, to go to the Nigeria Army to get evidence of his WASC to enable him run for election as president, no doubt, is the one dragging the military into politics. Bokohari and APC are the ones dragging the military into politics. The right thing for the military to do was to cut their link to that controversy and PR disaster and that they have done very professionally.

      • Akinmade

        Point of correction my brother, he did not ask anyone to go and get the evidence, he only swore affidavit on that basis. If Namadi Sambo could not present his, why do we even have to bother about Buhari’s? The same affidavit that was sworn by an architect is no different from the one sworn by a retired military officer accepted by our very own drafted constitution.

  • Juliet Okoro

    APC has bewitched her followers. Now they are citing other provisions to tell us that he is qualified and shy away from the issue of his WAEC cert. Bunch of desperados

    • Bichi

      Most of elite from the southern part of Nigeria cannot justify there paper qualification particularly Igbos because of them bought the result from kángaroos institute predominantly dominate southern part of Nigeria . But I assured you any northerner you saw obtained some certain qualification I swear he worked tirelessly to get it unlike you were you inherit from your brothers, relatives or else you bought it.

      • Juliet Okoro

        If all the Northerners worked for their certificate, let your buhari present his own. Listen, Nigeria has grown pass that level where the Northerners think they own the nation. The unity school entrance exam is a proof that people are no longer keeping quiet. I bet you most of the Northerners in federal parastatals that have risen to directorate cadre don’t have the qualifications but got there by quota system like your buhari that lied to an oath

  • I Hate Sycophant Truly

    Where is this double standard coming from? His certs were with us on the 4th January but not with us on the 20th January. We even know his grade in WAEC but don’t have the originals and certified true copies. What a double standard. What an indictment on the part of Nigeria Army for recruiting somebody without collecting photocopies of his credentials. The Nigeria Army has to come clean on this or they drag themselves into the mud.

    • Ekwekwe

      So, when you have worked 30 years for Arewa Corporation, just for example, the company takes custody and responsibility for all copies of your certificates you claim you obtained before and after joining the company? Would you or Bokohari have some responsibility to provide your “certipicate” when it is demanded of you, especially when you have applied for the most senior job in another company?

      • Abdul

        You devil, get away from here. YOUR FATHERS COULDNT DESTROY NIGERIA and WE WILL NOT ALLOW YOU GOONS DESTROY IT NOW. WE SHALL FIGHT YOU TO A STAND STILL GOD’S WILLING.Very terrible and demon possessed people. shame on you and whatever you stand for.

      • I Hate Sycophant Truly

        There is no organisation or company that will employ you and not have copies of you credential. The custom is to document you and same time collect copies to file. He did said, they carted away his document when IBB raided his home and don’t you think it’s an indictment for Military to claim they have no copy but can quote his grade they entered in a form they filled for him? The constitution also demand that if there is no cert or misplaced, it can be sworn to, which he has done and that’s why it’s difficult for PDP to go to court or INEC sanctioning him. But as an individual if you’re not yet satisfied, you can as well sue him to find the true state of his qualification.

  • Ette

    Wicked PDP and its grossly incompetent GEJ are destroying spirit de corp of the military, they are breaking down the fabrics of our national unity in failed attempt to hang unto power. It is incomprehensible that a military general will come to the public to tell these wicked stories about a respected retired General and former Head of State who has contributed immensely to the developments of this nation. It is not only GMB who has been so embarrassed but all the retired military personnel who joined the military in 1960 or 1961 whose documents the military said were not verified. With this disastrous state of affairs in the military the war against the insurgency cannot be won as the military has lost confidence in GEJ. The world is shunning us as leper due to gross incompetent and unbridled corruption. Woe to PDP and GEJ for destroying our national pride.

  • endingNaija

    I have just read the documentations of Mr. Buhari’s credentials as returned to him by the military. I can now confirm the basis of the calamity and evil that has befallen Nigeria since six years under Mr. Jonathan’s rule. I wish to say as follows
    1. Mr. Goodluck Jonathan the present president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is EVIL and SATANIC THROUGH AND THROUGH.
    2. Mr. Goodluck Jonathan is a NEGATIVE SPIRIT . This explains the negativity and corrosion that follows everything he touches in NIgeria.
    3. Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, the present President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria must be VOTED OUT peacefully and democratically on February 14, if Nigeria will make any progress-THIS MAN-GOODLUCK JONATHAN- IS EVIL AND SATANIC in and out. For him to encourage his Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Fraud to LIE in a shameless manner on Buhari’s credentials as if the man did not even go to school, in a most evil manner is SATANIC. Who does not know the low level of documentation and archiving in Nigeria at that time for God’s sake-even today documentation in Nigeria does not meet International standard. Jonathan has to leave if Nigeria will make progress. Goodluck Jonathan IS SATAN INCARNATE and his campaign people are followers of SATAN. Jonathan MUST LEAVE for causing so much un-necessary havoc and emotions around Buhari’s credentials. Buhari is qualified to contest under the law. His credentials have shown that. Those credentials and sentimens expressed around them in 1960s meet professional and academic STANDARDS. No wonder Mr. Buhari was un-pertubed, showing confidence, poise and unaffected by the negativity of the distractions all along. God Bless you Muhamadu Buhari. Nothing will happen to you. God that places the burden of Change in Nigeria on your lean but effective shoulders and wise head will see you through. History shall be the judge. Nothing will shall happen to you. As you respond to duty to serve your motherland again, God will go before you. Our Lord Jesus will be behind you. Our Lord Jesus will be on your right hand. Our Lord Jesus will be on your left hand. May God Bless you and your family eternally. God put the enemies of Nigeria as represented by the Satanic Goodluck Jonathan to shame.

    • Etomi

      APC wants to impose a presidential Jackie Chan on Nigeria, who believes in kick boxing his way to accomplishing everything..
      Here was a former military head of state in 1984 who, having heard nothing about the law of demand and supply owing to his illiteracy, marshaled out soldiers to the streets to enforce reduction of prices of goods by fiat…
      But alas! not only did his populist gambit fail woefully, he also was oblivious that there was a service sector which charges fees for service delivery…
      His Jackie Chan price reduction policy was hardly applied to the service sector and thus because of its ad hoc character failed as the work of a make-shift economist….
      That same illiterate is who APC wants to impose on Nigeria 31 years after!!!!

      You could misplace your original, fire may destroy it, like in the case of Buhari, IBB ordered the originals and other important document to be taken from his personal house when he was overthrown in 1985. Only God know where IBB kept Buhari’s certificate, maybe because of the issues between them as at then, IBB may have destroy it.

      Education is ability to provide SOLUTIONS. for me, Jonathan is illiterate because he is unable to provide solution even with his Phd.

      I am not happy because PDP and Jonathan wants to destroy every good thing that is left of this nation, they have divided Nigeria along religion and ethnic line, destroy the military, mess up our psyche. JONATHAN IS THE WORST PRESIDENT TO PRESIDE OVER THE AFFAIR OF THIS COUNTRY. History will judge him badly.

  • Olanrewaju Famojuro

    If in 1973 an Black African was described by any world class college in UK as of average intelligence comparable to any white officers. It means in today’s speak that you are very competent and very intelligent. This was a time when most white people view Africa as the dark uncivilised continent. This discussion about General Buhari’s academic qualification is pedestal and distractive designed to take up media space and focus Nigerians on emptiness.

    Common sense and ability is surely better than untested and substandard doctorate and professors.

    A world class institution has found the general to be of average intelligence comparable with his peers from different part of the world.

        And if after achieving all these in the name of Jesus, Muhammed , Ifa and Olodumare he happens to loose his GCSE certificates he can simply go back to his secondary school or contact the relevant institution a simple computer search can enable him to have a copy as this is 2015 and not 1960.

      Okoro, blind Ediot, we shall meet at the poll, the few igbos pushing Jonathan will be shamed soon. we will not only demolish you people in the coming election, we will retire all of you from public service. Pig head, Nigeria will stand whether you like it or not.

    Albert Einstein Failed his entrance examination to Zurich polytechnic and according to his professors he was a bad student who would not go anywhere in life. How has history judged Albert Einstein!.

    Let’s just suppose General Buhari can not find his certificates for whatever reason. The uttermost deciding quality our beloved country needs right now is sincerity and truthfulness , a person that detest corruption , a pious man , a duty to serve, lay down his life for his country and lots of common sense and a conviction that business will not go as usual as it has been the case in Nigeria.

    We do not need more paper qualifications as demonstrated in every Nigerian sector.

    I do not have all these qualities, do you?…. I do not think so but I know someone that does and his name is General Buhari.

      like u said…a sincere and truthful, person dat detest corruption, pious man, a duty to serve and lots more….is Buhari. Good, being all that should come out and present himself as such…..being sincere and truthful even as albeit einstein, can still make it if God says he is and is qualified as well.

  • Fula

    enough said already….bit fools don’t know when to put an end to their foolery. the voters will show them the way out soon

  • Innocent Citizen

    Goggle for the certificate now. It is available with premium Times

  • tijan kabba

    the PDP can continue to try and discredit the General. You are only making him more popular

  • Akinmade

    I guess there can never be forgery in exam numbers if we verify from the right sources. I think people who are not quite satisfied with the constitution can write to WAEC or try to link up with people Buhari mentioned he took the exam with.

  • sandyqueen2

    First GMB told us that his certificate is with the military, the military came out to debunk the claims, then he turned to his school citing Shehu Yaradua as his school mate (smh), when will this man change please. Lying under oath and pretending that all is well is what I can’t understand. I can’t imagine this kind of man at the helm of affairs of this country. God forbid!

  • sandyqueen2

    That was a statement of result, not original WAEC certificate. Also, the picture as shown there is that of the principal not Buhari’s.

  • Fatima24

    I just noticed that the lines on page 2 of the master sheet where the names of students appear are inconsistent. Look closely you will understand my point. GMB is a cheat!

      Mummu people,Maddam you have a right to go to court under the Nigerian constitution and ask for the WASC/CAMBRIDGE RESULTS.Case closed ladies and gentlemen’s of the jury. Thank You.

  • Fatima24

    The scam is not on the result but on the attached master list. A paper was placed on it.

    The mere fact that Buhari truncated a democratic process makes him unfit to benefit from such. If Nigerians have been docile and left the military in governance, where will he turn to now. Imagine where Nigeria would have been now, if we have continued in our democratic experience since 1979. GEJ’s achievements speak volumes for him; road networks, airport remodelling, agriculture transformation, rail revamping, the you win initiative, sending first class graduates on oversea scholarship,even power generation and so on.
