APC Presidential candidate says his certificates are with the military

The former Head of State was required to present his certificates to INEC, along with other aspirants, for the purpose of the 2015 elections but he failed to do so.

The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari has told the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that his academic qualifications are still in the military’s possession.

However, Buhari presented an affidavit which he deposed to at a High Court in Abuja and in which he explained that all his certificates were with the Secretary of the Military Board.

The affidavit was dated November 24, 2014 and was received by INEC on December 18 2014. It reads:

“I am the above-named person and deponent to this affidavit therein. All my academic qualifications documents as filled in my presidential form, President APC/001/2015, are currently with the Secretary, Military Board as of the time of presenting this affidavit. The affidavit is made in good faith and for record purpose.”

Vice President, Namadi Sambo also failed to present his certificates as he told INEC, that his certificates, both Bachelors and Masters degrees, had been destroyed by fire.
