We don’t have Buhari’s original certificates – Nigerian Army

The Nigerian Army said it did not have the original, certified true copy or statement of results of retired General Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Candidate for the February general elections.

The Director of Army Public Relations, Olajide Laleye, said this while briefing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.

Mr. Laleye said that the entry made on the Nigerian Army Form 199A at the point of documentation after Buhari was commissioned as an officer, indicated that the former Head of State obtained the West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961.

“With credits in relevant subjects: English Language, Geography, History, Health Science, Hausa and a pass in English Literature.

“Neither the original copy, certified true copy (CTC) nor statement of result of Major-.Gen. Mohammadu Buhari‘s WASC result is in his personal file.

Mr. Laleye said the army holds the retired senior officer in high esteem and respect and would not be a party to any controversy surrounding his eligibility for any political office.

He said that suffice to state that Mr. Buhari rose steadily to the enviable rank of Major General before becoming the Head of State of the country in December 1983.

“The media hype on the retired Buhari’s credentials as well as numerous requests made by individuals and cooperate bodies to the Nigerian Army on this issue have necessitated that we provide the facts as contained in the retired senior officer’s service records.

“Records available indicate that Buhari applied to join the military as a form six student of the Provincial Secondary School, Katsina, on Oct. 18, 1961.

“His application was duly endorsed by the principal of the school, who also wrote a report on him and recommended him to be suitable for military commission.

“It is a practice in the Nigerian Army that before candidates are shortlisted for commissioning into the officers’ cadre of the service, the selection board verifies the original copies of credentials as presented.

“There is no available record to show that this process was followed in the 1960s,” Mr. Laleye said.

On the recent CNN report concerning issues of kitting, equipment, corruption and medical treatment, Mr. Laleye said there was no Army in the world where personnel did not purchase additional uniforms and kits to augment those officially assigned to them.

“Accordingly, the army has not failed to issue uniforms and kits to its personnel periodically.

“Like other armies, the Nigerian Army has over the years, established ordinance shops in all its barracks and cantonments where uniforms and kits are sold at subsidized prices to its personnel from allowances already provided in their pay slips.

“Similarly the Nigerian Army has a very functional healthcare delivery system in the country. It fully subscribes to the National Health Insurance scheme (NHIS) and this is functional in all its health facilities.

The army spokesperson said that the army had made undoubted operational gains in the North-East of recent, thereby rubbishing the claim that Boko Haram had out-gunned it.

He said that the CNN would do well if it beamed its searchlight on the atrocities of Boko Haram terrorists against the innocent and defenseless Nigerians, rather than the Nigerian Army.

Mr. Laleye said the army would remain focused on its mission to rid Nigeria of terrorism and insurgency.

To that end, he said, the army had commenced the implementation of the “extensive operational , administrative and logistical decisions’’ reached during the 2014 Chief of Army staff Annual Conference.

He said in no distant future, Nigerians would begin to see very positive results in terms of security, particularly in the North-East and the nation.

    Form 6 in those days was Higher School Leaving Certificate. In his entry form grades were actually assigned to subjects he sat in the WAEC. Note that all Secondary Schools in the north at that time had white principals. The principal recommended him based on his performance and conduct. I suspect that Jona boys in collusion with insiders removed copies of his credentials in his file to generate controversy.

    • ade

      Stop talking rubbish. Form 6 in northern Nigeria then was equivalent to Form 5 southern Nigeria.

    • John

      From what the Army Spokesman said, Buhari claimed to have School Certficate only after he became a commissioned officer in the Army and not before then. Again the Army has said they neither sighted nor are in possession of the claimed School Certificate. Besides, the Army has admitted that due process of screening was not followed as supposed to confirm Buhari’s academic claims before he was enlisted. There’s no basis therefore for you to conclude that anybody removed copies of his credentials because like the Army has clearly stated such documents were not submitted by Buhari in the first place. In my humble opinion, however, I would suggest that this certificate controversy be eternally laid to rest so that more important electoral issues can be canvassed. Thank God the Principal of the Secondary School he claimed to have been educated upto Form 6 rightly and properly recommended him for admission and that is sufficient proof that he has met the requirement of the Electoral Laws. God bless Nigeria.

    • Okey

      So from 1961 till date, Buhari could not keep even a photocopy of his certificate. But remember, the Principal remarked that Buhari “will pass” not that he “passed” his school certificate.

  • King Carlos

    Initially they said they couldn’t find his certificates, later, they said they only had ‘photocopies’. Now, NO CERTIFICATE. I believe the Nigerian Military needs to overhaul itself, and if it’s true that due process wasn’t followed in recruiting officers in the 60s. The military has to indict itself for wrong recruitment.

    But, as for this impending CHANGE, nothing can stop it, except if Buhari is not a Nigerian. I hope they have checked his birth certificates and citizenship records. I’d rather be safe under an ‘illiterate’, than to be kidnapped by boko haram under a PHD President. Meanwhile, the University of Porthacourt should release the phd thesis of Goodluck Jonathan.

    • deji

      You are right. The army Generals feeding fat on the Boko Haram menace will not want the feeding bottle removed from their rotten mouth.

      blue blood. Mind you this is just the tip of the ice berg .This is the
      same thing THAT goes on in most federal institutions such as NNPC, FED
      CIVIL service ETC .Fulanis have been running nigeria as their fiefdom
      ,This is why they want power back at all cost ,cause they wont survive
      without the status quo…….

    • Wise Head

      The Northern Muslims should stop Boko Haram by just telling their brothers that the practice of slaughtering innocent people to gain power will not work.

    • Okey

      Nowhere did the Army claim they have a copy of his certificate. They said, in his file was “a letter of recommendation” from his principal and “Buhari’s later entry (claim) that he had Secondary School Certificate. In any event, WAEC had come to Nigeria by this time, why the difficulty in Buhari approaching them for a CTC ?

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      The man is a fraud,he perjured himself already,he has to own up and quit the race !!

  • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

    A recommendation is different from a certificate guys. This principal gave a recommendation. It doesn’t substitute for certificate. That a kid can pass an exam as stated by his principal doesn’t equate to him sitting and actually passing. The recommendation was enough to join the army. The question is now, is it enough to contest for presidency? NO,,

    buhari go back to school abeg. Or honourable quit the race. This is enough embarrassment. Chai.

    Propaganda Times at it again: The Army said “We do not have Buhari’s certificate” (see Punch), not “We don’t have Buhari’s original certificates – Nigerian Army,” as your headline reads. There was no question of original certificates, only letter from principal in his service file.

    • TrueNja

      You must be an imbecile. Can’t you read simple English? “that the entry made on the Nigerian Army Form 199A at the point of documentation after Buhari was commissioned as an officer, indicated that the former Head of State obtained the West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961. With credits in relevant subjects: English Language, Geography, History, Health Science, Hausa and a pass in English Literature”

  • absam777

    GEJ desperation is alarming. Now they have resorted to stealing documents just as they forged health certificate, for the most illogical and despicable character destruction in the history of Nigeria politics, Since GEJ destroyed the Nigerian army on ethnic line, his people must have removed the certificates. What a shame.

    • Wise Head

      If they stole Buhari’s documents, let him say so. It is not for you to speculate. Even if GEJ broke into the army record office to steal Buhari’s records, did he also break into Buhari’s house to steal his own academic records?

  • Action_Nigeria

    PT PLEASE PUBLISH THE CORRECT VERSION OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE ON BUHARI CERTIFICATE

    The report which was shown to newsmen read, “I recommend Mohammadu Buhari fit for military commission”.

    Regarding his result, the Principal wrote, “I consider that he will pass Maths, English and 3 other subjects”.

    Speaking further, Laleye who said the briefing was necessitated by deluge of requests from civil society groups, the media, etc. over General Buhari’s eligibility for any political office, said, “It is a practice in the Nigerian Army that before candidates are shortlisted for commissioning into the officers ‘cadre of the service, the selection board verifies the original copies of credentials that are presented”.

    “However, there is no available record to show that this process was followed in the 1960s. Nevertheless, the entry made on the Nigerian Army form 199A at the point of documentation after commission as an officer indicated that the former head of state obtained the West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961 with credits in relevant subjects: English
    Language, Geography, History, Health Science, Hausa and a pass in English Literature”.

    “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. What I have said here is what is contained in his service records, personal file. We have not added anything nor subtracted anything

  • boliatepa

    This is actually more of the Nigerian Army’s problem than Buhari’s. How can an institution so important and disciplined, not have the document it should have kept? Did Buhari refuse to give it to them or they lost it? They should tell us why they don’t have it. And should it be impossible for it to be provided by the issuing body or by Buhari himself? Why this drama about nothing? Records like this should not be so difficult to find… except that Nigeria is still in darkness generally.

    • Action_Nigeria

      My friend …. Army did not say the documents are missing …… they simply said that none was submitted to them.

      The onus is on Buhari to produce his WASC Certificate …… by the way has Buhari told us when he sat for WASC exams …….. let us start from there.

      Will Buhari tolerate a situation where after interviewing a candidate for a job ….. the candidate tells Buhari to go to his former employers and get a copy of his certificate ……. too absurd and shameful for a man who parades himself as “Mr. Integrity and Mr Do Right”

    • Wise Head

      Before you come in as president to change Nigeria and transform it, you must first qualify to contest. You must be eligible to contest. Anything short of that is a coup.

    In a decent country, Buhari would just have quit the presidential race right away and returned to Daura quietly. Before you can come in as president to change Nigeria and transform it, you must first qualify to contest. You must be eligible to contest. Anything short of that is a coup. You must observe the provision of the electoral law which stipulates that you must attach copies of your certificate to support your academic claims.
    Also, if you make a false claim in an affidavit, that is also a criminal offence (lying under oath) which attracts serious penalty. Buhari should be a statesman and quit. He should not wait to be disqualified so as to give his gangs of bloody-thirst hooligans in the North the excuse to start killing and maiming people. He should quit honorably. He is not qualified to contest. He does not possess the basic requirement

    Buhari has been living a lie since 1962,he has further complicated issues for himself by what any legally astute person will agree is a case of potential perjury. The APC and the ex-tyrant Buhari has some urgent explanations to make,there are no records to show that he met the qualifications for enrolment into the military,he lied in his entrance form. The only document is a letter of a recommendation .

    Buhari stated in his affidavit that his original documents were in the Army’s possession,this we all know is a lie and the fact that he made the statement under oath is a pointer to perjury. Buhari is now a suspected fraud unless he can prove otherwise in a court of law.

  • I quote General Laleye: “It is a practice in the Nigerian Army that before candidates are shortlisted for commissioning into the officers’ cadre of the service, the selection board verifies the original copies of credentials as presented.
    “There is no available record to show that this process was followed in the 1960s,”
    Laleye said that the entry made on the Nigerian Army Form 199A at the point of documentation after Buhari was commissioned as an officer, indicated that the former Head of State obtained the West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961
    If the NA did not verify the records of General Buhari in 1960s, how does that become Buhari’s responsibility, was Buhari NA Commandant in 1960s?

    • Action_Nigeria

      Regarding his result, the Principal wrote, “I consider that he will pass Maths, English and 3 other subjects”.

      • endingNaija

        And the principal also joined in singing SAI BUHARI oyoyo!

      • Festuso

        Back then in the 1960s, secondary school academic year used to run from January to December of the year. Also, it was customary for WASC exams to be taken in December of the final year. So, if Buhari finished secondary school in December 1961 but applied to the Army in October 1961, that means his WASC results had not been released as at the time he applied. In those days, the School Principal’s assessment and recommendation were mainly relied upon for final year students wishing to further their education at Higher School Certificate (HSC level) or even for enrolment in public institutions like the military and Civil Service.

        Now, at the point of documentation after Buhari was commissioned as an officer, his WASC results must have been out. Hence they were able to record the Credits/Passes that he obtained. It is noteworthy that photocopying machines were hardly commonplace equipment in those days. People acted more on the basis of trust and integrity. It stands to reason that the Army Selection Board could not have certified a nonexistent certificate for recording nonexistent Credits and Passes for Buhari. It is noteworthy that 1961 is not like 2015 where goons like Fani-Kayode, Fayose and Metuh will do anything for a pot of porridge!

        • Action_Nigeria

      • Did Nigerian Army say they did not receive Buhari’s form or that it is not in their files. These are two different things..Maybe the NA left Buhari’s certificate in the fields when they were running for Boko Haram. The NA should be more concerned with how to tackle Boko Haram than how to scandalize a honorable retied General.

          If Nigerians say they no longer want GEJ, that is not a problem. There are other candidates contesting the election. But we have laws and you can’t be promising change and promising to uphold the law while at the same time breaking the law. Salisu Buhari became the Speaker of the House of Rep based on a degree he did not have. When it was discovered, he was removed, tried and convicted for forgery and perjury.

          • Abdul

            Which law is that?

      • Abdul

        So who is lying? Buhari or the military? remember that this same spokesman came on air in Dec to tell the world that they have Buhari’s certificate, why speaking from both sides of the mouth now? is it because Presidency have given them marching order to insult Buhari? PDP and few overfed Army officers cannot stop the wishes of Nigerians.

        WE WILL VOTE PDP OUT IN FEB COME RAIN COME SHINE.

        • Mayo

          The spokesman said they have copies of credentials of all serving and retired army personnel. In addition, the spokesman said they do not keep photocopies and besides army personnel can make a request for copies of their credentials. This was a general statement of their procedure

          Now, this spokesman has said they have checked Buhari’s files and they have copies of his other credentials but not that of his WASC certificate. In addition, they do not have the original or certified true original.

          What is the ‘big discrepancy’ that you are insinuating?

    • tundemash

      No Yomi …. it was verified and they have it, it is the PDP using the army.
      On January 3rd, just 2 weesk ago.. … the boys’ scout General Laleye said the army had copies of Buhari’s academic records (as shown in the pic belw0 so what the boys’ scout General needs to tell Nigerians is what has changed in the last 2 weeks……

      No shaking, let PDP go to court !!!

  • Festuso

    Back then in the 1960s, secondary school academic year used to run from January to December of the year. Also, it was customary for WASC exams to be taken in December of the final year. So, if Buhari finished secondary school in December 1961 but applied to the Army in October 1961, that means his WASC results had not been released as at the time he applied. In those days, the School Principal’s assessment and recommendation were mainly relied upon for final year students wishing to further their education at Higher School Certificate (HSC level) or even for enrolment in public institutions like the military and Civil Service.
    Now, at the point of documentation after Buhari was commissioned as an officer, his WASC results must have been out. Hence they were able to record the Credits/Passes that he obtained. It is noteworthy that photocopying machines were hardly commonplace equipment in those days. People acted more on the basis of trust and integrity. It stands to reason that the Army Selection Board could not have certified a nonexistent certificate for record nonexistent Credits and Passes for Buhari. It is noteworthy that 1961 is not like 2015 where goons like Fani-Kayode, Fayose and Metuh will do anything for a pot of porridge!

    • Bishop

      And he rightly said they had a selection method,then said after he was commissioned these were subjects he passed. We allow politics overshadow our reasonin. We are thinkin missionary schools are like what we have now. It’s sad.

      • Sanusi

        My daughter finished secondary school in May /June ,got admission to 2 Universities un aided in Naija context. All we put is AR Awaiting Result. The University resume on July/August, while WASC was release after She had spent seven weeks in the University.PDP can tell you that this is not normal.
        In those 1960s days,you don’t even need 6 credit in school cert to enter Teahers college,Technical schools,Army and some tertiary institutions. If you have it you are a darling of all Universities.All you need is S75 or proof of completing Class 3 secondary schools,G4 proof of completing Class 4 ,Modern Schools which is 3 years school after primary .They are all recognized to enter Teachers College,Technical schools,Army,school of nursing etc. But when you finished all these Teachers G 2,Technical schools or Army officers courses your levels and standard is considered Higher than WASCE. A General certificate and post which GMB Has gotten is far Higher than any HND or BSC.All these past certificates are still recognized where they are been require.if APC even present Osibajo another Southerner to contest against Jonathan ,Jona will lose.I stand to be challenged.

    • Federalist2012

      Let believe you are right. When Buhari finally got his certificate did he give it to the Army for a review, if no why not, and why did he say that his certificates are with the military? Let’s assume h did not give it to the army why is then? Please let’s not insult the intelligence of Nigerians. Posterity will judge us all. If Buhari is allowed to get away with this impunity we are setting a very bad precedent for our chidren

  • TRUTH

    He enlisted with results that were never sighted, he registered with INEC with results/certificates that were never sighted. In 1961, he used his Principal as evidence. In 2015 he submits an affidavit as evidence. Oh my Nigeria! Where has courage to speak truth gone?

    QUESTION: Did he pass Mathematics?

    ‘RELEVANT’ SUBJECTS (allegedly passed)
    1. English Language

  • the truth

    Premium times please publish the whole and full story. But in your case of partisan politics for your pay masters you tactically cut and paste the quotes from the military head. For those that care to listen the military head stated categorically that buhari’s principal vouched that buhari will pass his waec and as such he was admitted. This goes to show how nigeria was run in the 60’s. Buhari claims to want to fight corruption when he is a fraudster. The constitution is clear on academic qualifications when vying for the top post. No amount of maradona can save this. We ought to be neutral in our analysis and stand for the truth.If buhari is not qualified no amount of violence would make him qualified all of a sudden

      The same military spokesman that came out to tell Nigerians two weeks ago that they have copies of Buhari’s certificates have come again to tell they world that they no longer have them

      We just heard on good authority that PDP have instructed the army leadership to do all they can to malign the person of Buhari and that includes ridiculing him.

    The Army makes the following facts very clear now; viz:

    • Muhammadu Buhari did NOT sit for school certificate WAEC exam.
    • Muhammadu Buhari did NOT complete secondary school education.
    •Muhammadu Buhari applied to the Army in 1961 based on a personal letter.
    • That personal letter was signed by a person purporting to be School Principal.
    • The Principal did NOT write to say Muhammadu Buhari has a school certificate.
    • All the Principal stated is that Buhari should pass school certificate if he took it.
    • There is no evidence whatsoever that Buhari later took the WASC examination.
    • That letter was accepted by the Army in 1961 for Buhari’s admission as an officer.
    • Under the 1999 Constitution the Principal’s letter is NOT equivalent to school cert.

  • Let me start by quoting General Laleye: “It is a practice in the Nigerian Army that before candidates are shortlisted for commissioning into the officers’ cadre of the service, the selection board verifies the original copies of credentials as presented.
    “There is no available record to show that this process was followed in the 1960s,”
    Laleye said that the entry made on the Nigerian Army Form 199A at the point of documentation after Buhari was commissioned as an officer, indicated that the former Head of State obtained the West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961
    If the NA did not verify the records of General Buhari in 1960s, how does that become Buhari’s responsibility, was Buhari NA Commandant in 1960s?
    The INEC law states he only had to be educated to the WASC level, not obtain one.

    • Prof. Wole Soyinka

  • Wise Head

    In a decent country, Buhari would just have quit the presidential race right away and returned to Daura quietly. Before you can come in as president to change Nigeria and transform it, you must first qualify to contest. You must be eligible to contest. Anything short of that is a coup. You must observe the provision of the electoral law which stipulates that you must attach copies of your certificate to support your academic claims.
    Also, if you make a false claim in an affidavit, that is also a criminal offence (lying under oath) which attracts serious penalty. Buhari should be a statesman and quit. He should not wait to be disqualified so as to give his gangs of bloody-thirst hooligans in the North the excuse to start killing and maiming people. He should quit honorably. He may have good intentions, but he is simply not qualified to contest. He does not possess the basic requirement. What a pity, but what can we do? A compassionate butcher may be so concerned about the fate of people requiring surgery and itching to help save lives, but he is just handicapped, because he is not qualified and licensed to carry out surgery because he is not a qualified surgeon; he is not a physician. It is as simple as that.

Now if you use GEJ’s alleged lack of qualification to justify Buhari’s crime, why then are you presenting Buhari as the face of change since they are both being accused? Okay, Buhari claimed he was once the secretary of the military board, can he say in all sincerity that he never looked into his file and he never knew that there is no certificate there? Now Univ of Cambridge says they speak on his so-called results if he requests them to, why is he afraid to ask them to clear the air if he has nothing to hide? When has a fraud become the face of change? Only in the South West and North West: Buhari – Katsinagate. Tinubu: Chicagogate! That is the face of change

  • Olusola

    Check Section 318 of our constitution. It empowers INEC absolutely to interpret if a person has attained school certificate level including aggregating his civil service record, promotions and level of oral spoken English. As you can see INEC is not asking Buhari for certificate, only PDP noise makers are. I will vote Buhari no matter what! When someone bad mouth something in your possesion and does not mind having it, then you know that thing is very valuable. Buhari is of high value and corrupt people wanted to rob Nigeria of his inestimable service. I have always had the fear if hell will not let loose when it dawn on them that Buhari will win. As you can see even their collaborators in the church are restless! You mention Buhari where PDP folks are and they loose their heads, why is Buhari giving them so much headache?

    • Otile

      Of course INEC will not ask a Fulani man to present a true certificate. They know he has none, but they are going to rationalize that he has experience. One thing I don’t like about using experience as a substitute for genuine required certificate is that there is always experience, and there is also bad experience.

      You cannot tell me that having the bad experience of using the gun to overthrow a legitimate government should serve as a substitute for WASC. This is corruption, it is ungodly.

    @ Otile:

    Buhari is today exposed for his false statement on oath

    You are on point. What Section 137 (1) of Nigeria’s 1999 Constitution requires for qualification
    to run for president is NOT the certificate obtained at military exercises, drills, mock battle, or,
    or infantry formation tactics and strategies. Rather, the 1999 Constitution is specific that only
    one provable factual standard applies, and states as follows; that:

    • 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.

    On that literal phrase Buhari’s affidavit claim of WASC is exposed (above) by the Army as false

  • Okey

    It is shocking. 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. With that and upon finishing his cadet training, Buhari made an entry (i.e. claimed) “I now have School Certificate” but he kept no copy as proof. 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. 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.

    @ Otile,

    General Muhammadu Buhari is goaded by a plea-bargained drugs-running criminal on U.S court records,
    but Bola Ahmed Tinubu who’d himself sworn a false affidavit that he attended (a) University of Chicago,
    (b) Government College, Ibadan, and, (c) Aroloya Primary School,
    is not the sort of person General Buhari
    needs at this defining moment.

    Or, does he need Barrister Tunji Abayomi who imputed in public that Buhari is comparable to a bright student
    expelled from school before WAEC examinations for raping the daughter of the English teacher.
    General Buhari instead needs to be alone. He is the only one who can best advise himself.

    A WASC certificate of 1962 is impossible to invent after tendering affidavit that the WASC
    certificate is in 3rd party’s custody – thus creating evidentiary chain which Muhammadu Buhari
    can no longer deny.

    • endingNaija

      We have a thieving couple in Nigeria. They are Goodluck Jonathan and Diezani Alison Madueke. They both STOLE $20b from NNPC and EFCC is too weak to get the money back. If they do not return the money, they will be jailed.It is Sai Buhari Sai Change.

  • George Ager.A

    The Nigerian Army has finally dragged themselves into this mud! A few things can be summarised from the information provided by MR Olajide Laleye; 1.Buhari was educated up to form 6 level which fulfills section 131 sub section D of the 1999 constitution(he has been educated up to at least School Certificate level or its equivalent.) 2.Recommended by his principal to the British run Military training college 3.Mr. Laleye said that the entry made on the Nigerian Army Form 199A at the point of documentation after Buhari was commissioned as an officer, indicated that the former Head of State obtained the West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961. Then he starts to throw in speculative statements here that demonstrate his partisanship:“Neither the original copy, certified true copy (CTC) nor statement of result of Major-.Gen. Mohammadu Buhari‘s WASC result is in his personal file” WHATEVER SHOULD BE IN GMB’s FILE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE MILITARY! Another speculative statement “It is a practice in the Nigerian Army that before candidates are shortlisted for commissioning into the officers’ cadre of the service, the selection board verifies the original copies of credentials as presented.There is no available record to show that this process was followed in the 1960s,” Mr. Laleye said” AGAIN THIS IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE NIGERIAN ARMY NOT GMB! My conclusion is that this press conference was designed to further the propaganda on GMBs certificate issue.This same man said a few weks ago that they had copies, now he has changed his position. They are not claiming that he forged a document, so what are they claiming?

    • Prof. Wole Soyinka

      THERE ARE TWO THINGS HERE AND BOTH OF THEM ARE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE

      1. Buhari versus Nigerian Army: It is even absurd and too shameful for Buhari to involve the Nigerian Army in this matter. Where in the world have you seen a candidate for employment refer his new prospective employers to his previous employers for the purpose of obtaining his school certificates ….. it is too absurd and too shameful. The only reason why Buhari dragged the Nigerian Army into this is because Buhari does not have WASC

      Buhari’s claim to have WASC is fraudulent and he must be jailed for perjury.

      2. Buhari versus INEC (Nigerian People) : This is the real matter ….. this is where the real problem lies not with the Army. Buhari lied in his INEC Form that he has WASC. The onus is on Buhari to produce his WASC Certificate …… by the way has Buhari told us when he sat for WASC exams …….. let us start from there.

      Will Buhari tolerate a situation where after interviewing a candidate for a job ….. the candidate tells Buhari to
      go to his former employers and get a copy of his certificate ……. too absurd and shameful for a man who parades himself as “Mr. Integrity and Mr Do Right”.

      • endingNaija

        The couple Diezani Alison Madueke and Goodluck Jonathan STOLE $20b from NNPC. We need our money back or they go to jail. Sai Buhari Sai Change.

      • George Ager.A

        You are making presuppositions here and seeming so emphatic about them. My opinion is, clearly GMB has a bone to grind which may involve the Nigerian Army. Lets go back a bit into history. The current National security adviser was one of the officer who took GMB down on the day of the 1985 coup in his house after visiting, watching TV and then drawing guns to take over his goverment. Remember that he was taken straight to jail from there. He house was vandalised and items confisicated. Now this is where this bone is. Mr Olajide Laleye did not tell us what other documentation they have from GMB. How was he promoted? In the Army you are not promoted on goodwill or ethnicity it was merit.We should not be looking at the Army then with the eyes of today. These was a proud institution run by the British. Untill when GMB stands before a court of Law in this country and is unable to prove that he does not posses a WASC cert. then can you refer to his claim as fraudulent. As of now, the Nigerian authorities are in possesion of it and note that he has not said the documents are missing!

      • tundemash

If he obtained six (6) requisite credits in WAEC in the 60’s, anyone familiar with passing the old WAEC will tell you, ‘e no easy o’ if you ask. As-is, even if Buhari presents rumpled toilet tissue as certificate, I will still say, Sai Buhari !!!

    • TRUTHMASTER

      So Buhari only has 3 credits?

      1. English Language
      2. History
      3. Geography

      Which means he failed the following:
      1. Mathematics
      2. Furher Matematics (Add Maths)
      3. Economics
      4. Government
      5. Commerce
      6. Agric Science
      7. Accounting
      8. Biology
      9. Technical Drawing
      10. Fine arts
      11. Physics
      12. Chemistry
      13. Music etc etc

          Wahala, notice how the constitution differentiated between (a) Having secondary certificate and (b) Not having seccondary certificate but educated up to the level of secondary school. That is to say in the case of (b), the constitution does not require a certificate but simply any evidence that a person is educated up to the level of secondary school. sub-section (d) even makes it possible for someone who attended, say, a formal driving school to be qualified if INEC feels the person is so qualified. Finally, the constitution goes ahead to clearly place the responsibility of proving any of this on INEC. INEC knows that Buhari is qualified and that is why they are quiet.

    APC EXPLODES IN TH FACE OF PROFESSOR SAGAY

    In the January 19, 2015 edition of THE PUNCH newspaper, Itse Sagay – a professor of law,
    was at his worst. “Buhari attended secondary school and we hear he was even the head boy.>
    He has been to the Cadet School in Mons, he attended the War College in the US and was given
    a certificate which is equivalent to a master’s degree,”
    Professor Itse Sagay said verbatim.

    It is a thing of shame that no clause in all he said above is relevant or logically presented as good reasoning.
    The War College course Buhari attended is a 10-month military training course with some discussions on tactics.
    The U.S War College never claimed it was offering academic program in the 10-month period Buhari attended.
    How a professor of law can, all by himself, convert military training to academic Master’s degree is disgraceful.

    No matter what Professor Sagay receives to howl for APC party for a fee, this mark he’s fallen is just too low.
    It is advised that Professor Itse Sagay seeks legal advice next time before making a mess of himself in public.
    If he had sought advice, he would have been told that it offends logic to base a presumption on a presumption.
    Professor Sagay assumes (wrongly) that Buhari needed WASC to attend purely military courses – he is wrong.

    Dear Editor,

    How Jonathan won Nigeria’s 2015 presidential election

    Please give me space to congratulate President Goodluck Jonathan.
    He has (virtually) won the 2015 election by landslide without competition.
    On the face of it General Buhari stands disqualified by 1999 Constitution.

    There’s no other strong opponent to challenge Goodluck Jonathan.
    This default victory must not get into the head of Goodluck Jonathan.
    It is not a victory on the merits but brought by the illiteracy of APC party.
    Jonathan must be humble and magnanimous in victory from now till 2019.

    • endingNaija

      We have a Nigerian couple-one of them is the outgoing President Jonathan-his mate is Diezani Alison Madueke. The couple STOLE $20b of our money from NNPC. They will be jailed if they do not return the money before they leave. So? It is Sai Buhari. Sai Change.

Reason: Section 35 of the 2010 Electoral Act demands action to be taken no less than 45 days before election.

  • Prof Wole Soyinka, firstly, the INEC law does not require presidential candidates to have a WASC. However, NA Form 199A entry said Buhari obtained WASC in 1961. How would NA have made this entry if they did not see the certificate. NA may have lost it after then. They may also have lost Buhari’s many courses certificates after the WASC through to his Major-General level. These up to General level certificates superseded the WASC and rendered the WASC inconsequential?Just as a straight Ph. D. candidate does not need a Masters degree. Pro Soyinka, did you complete all graduate degrees before becoming a Professor? It is not uncommon for a prospective employer to require an interviewee’s cv’s from a former employer directly. Will find out what Buhari will say tomorrow Jan. 21 2015. So long.

      This is crock of bullshit. Your argument is nothing but a heap of dung.

    • Tabugbo

      In other words, if you worked for Odua Corporation, just for example, for 30 years, they will take responsibility for and also have custody of your certificates, acquired before and after you joined the company. That sounds very convincing, doesn’t it? Indeed. My fear is that Bokohari may be sent to Kirikiri for perjury, being his favourite prison for fraudsters and enemies of the nation.

    • Babandum

      Yomi, cool down. The constitution does not even require a WASC. What it requires even my Igbo friend, who supplies the electrical fittings for my house, is qulaified.

      Just google the Nigerian constitution and check under section 318, what the constitution means by “school certicate”. All these nonsense about certificate should never even have arisen if we all read. (It is true that if you want to hide something from a black man, simply put it in writing). this is the excerpt from section 318:

      “School Certificate or its equivalent” means
      (a) a Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent, or 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;

      • Babandumb, don’t act the meaning of your name out, we know it already. The constitution requires that candidates have education to WASC level, not that they acquire it.

        • tundemash

          Yomi .. you got Babandum wrong. U are on same page. He’s saying that Buhari is eminently qualified as he met the constitutional requirement . Check section C (i) and (ii).

        • Joe

          You are reading your mind and not the problem Buhari has. Buhari SAID he has WASC and the certificates are with the army- his first constituency. In a civilized world, Buhari should facing perjury, but in Nigeria, all Kano people will troop out to support him. – petty.

      • Etim Udoh

        According to the list issued by INEC, Bokohari claimed that he had WASC. He swore to an oath that his educational credentials were with the Army Secretary. Your argument is shocking but I think you might be quoting Sharia law. In that case, your man, Bokohari, incriminated himself and may have his hand cut off. With the presidential race out of the question, now, we want to know how many other scams he has been up to on his devious road to the rank of major general and head of state.

    (with a pass in English Literature) when, in fact, you did not sit for 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,
    insofar as you never sat for WAEC exam or obtained any score in any subject?

    The PDP thugs have asked Fayose to issue damning advert on Buhari and then denied their involvement because they discovered that, their action only increased GMB popularity. Same with the certificate issue, it has helped increased GMB popularity to an unprecedented level because most Nigerians have discovered that PDP is a cult that does not respect Nigerians and are ready to kill and maim Nigerians in order to remain in power. Now in the next few days, PDP will come up with another malice. But the fact remains GMB is more than qualified to run for the office of the president. As for Jonathan and PDP thugs, Nigerians are watching and I hope you will abide by the rules of the game before it is too late for you.

  • Could it be that the same Nigerian Army that has pilfered trillions of naira meant for equiping the Army thus enabling Boko Haram’s genocide, may also want to extend the life of genocidal Boko Haram by trying to stall the election of Maitsesine-BokoHaram DESTROYER, General Buhari?

    Imagine the shame that military is dragging itself into because of dirty politics. By this statement the military is telling the whole world that it’s respected retire personnel, including former Heads of State who joint it in 1960 did not have their entry qualifications verified. Few weeks ago same military told us GMB’s documents were with it and today we are told that his documents were not verified and that some required documents are no longer with it. What a shame? Are they not breaking the all time held spirit de corp of the military. This is why they cannot win the insurgency war as this grossly incompetent government has destroyed the fabrics that bind us together as a nation. The sane thing for GEJ to do is resign as he has lost the confidence of the military completely.

  • Akinwale Yussuff Adewale

    On Buhari’s Certificate: PDP Needs a Better Strategy To Stop This Inevitable Change.
    So, how does the Constitution define Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent. Let’s take a look at Section 318. Part IV, Section 318 of the Constitution 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 totaling 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;

    So at a minimum, the letter from the Principal satisfies the requirement because it clearly indicates the man was sitting for WASC.

     

     

    If this is the entire strategy of PDP I’m sorry for these guys. Did they even take the Constitution and read it?

    These are the guys that have been ruling us for 16 years. They can’t even take the pains to read the definition section of a small book such as the constitution. How can they rule the whole nation then?

    • Gaskiya

      Leave the PDP rascals. Everybody in Nigeria knows that Jonathan and PDP are drowning in a deep ocean and there is no escape.

      BTW below is Kano venue of PDP rally where Jonathan is expected to arrive today.
      THE VENUE IS EMPTY BECAUSE NOBODY WANTS TO ASSOCIATE HIM/HERSELF WITH JONATHAN CAMPAIGN IN KANO.

  • Clarion Diallo

    Who needs certificates when history speaks for itself. Fela Kuti, Decree 20, the kidnap of Umaru Dikko from London, the horrible social, economical and political marasm Buhari brought onto the country when he was dictator, his call for post-election violence in 2011. This, clearly is not the man Nigeria needs.

  • LindaO

    Nigeria clearly needs a leap forward. Aging former military rulers like IBB and GMB hold us back. The mere fact that we
    need to dig so deep in GMB past is proof that on the one hand he can not be the change he claims to be, and on the other hand there is something quite fishy in his past. But more than diploma based controversies, every about his history in
    the 80s goes to say he is not one that should be given all that power – he already abused it once. He belongs to the past, and so do his human right violations, his jailing of journalists and outspoken critics, as well as his baseless boast on crushing Boko Haram (something our army is not in a position to do alone, unfortunately).

  • Akinfenwa Mikel

    Let us not focus on matters such as school certificates and instead look at what Buhari did once he emerged as a major general! He quickly overthrew the government and was a dictator. He thrived in Nigeria’s most bloody and difficult time, and ruled the nation with an iron fist. How soon we forget his atrocities of the 1980s! >> Fela Kuti, muzzling journalists, jailing dissenters, governing only as far as war and oil could take him. How can he be trusted to lead a democratic Nigeria to more freedom, more equality, more justice? Jonathan is the only way forward for Nigeria, only he can guide us further from Nigeria’s dark past!

  • danjuma suleman

    Hajiya Zainab, truth be told you are right about a holistic fight against corruption. But to be candid, any attempt you see Law Enforcement Officers embarked on the arrest of suspects or persons suspected of crime, it is based on; Intelligence, Petitions, Public Opinions, etc. The DSS can not just swoop in on Magistrate Judges, when there are no petitions or credible intelligence on them. Perhaps, an effort to start from somewhere won’t be a bad Idea. Just as stated by the DSS that they received petitions and followed up to discover some of the allegations on the Judges were true, Including how they collected and where they collected the Bribes. I think the perception and option of some Nigerians that the arrest of the Judicial Officers was illegal, is more of Social Interpretation of “Immunity” rather that what the Constitution or our Laws says. However, as it relates to the alleged Gestapo invasion of the Judges residences, we tend to forget the ACJA 2015 and the “Power of Ingress” which the Laws granted Law Enforcement Agencies. I wonder how comes even most senior lawyers who should know most of these laws, tend to claim they are not aware of the powers that gives the DSS such authority. Am dazed and perplexed! Similarly, the same lawyers and some Nigerians forget the Ordinance 1 of 1999, under Ex-Head of State Gen Abdulsalam Abubakar, who added more to the powers of the DSS via National Economic Crimes fight. On the whole, we must avoid following the bandwagon and try to carry out researches on our own before we comment on public or national issues. Good day Nigerians…!

    • Aremu Mathew Okikiolu

      Thank you for the illumination. Those lawyers you referred to are mischievous. They know what an ‘arrest’ means and they can go to court to challenge the gestapo style with the relevant warrants. Ignorance is a disease.
