President Muhammadu Buhari was pummelled with allegations of not obtaining certain education qualifications in the run up to the 2015 general elections. 

The other side of the political divide was always quick to remind the voting public that Buhari didn't make it through formal school enough to become President.

Which is why the picture above has resonated. Kinda.

Captured by the often powerful lens of the President's personal photographer Bayo Omoboriowo, the picture shows the President sharing a classroom with Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

Oshiomhole appears to be doing some 'espo' here, but we'll pass.

In adult education, a little 'giraffing' is allowed, we hear.

Except that Buhari hasn't really returned to a secondary school classroom to brush up on his Math or English or whatever else the PDP thinks he's deficient in.

The school is the Samuel Ogbemudia College in Benin city, Edo state.

Buhari is on a two-day working visit to Edo State on the invitation of Oshiomhole.

The President had just commissioned the school renovated by Oshiomhole and thought to share the learning environment with the students for a few minutes.
