Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has been given an attestation certificate by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) according to a Presidential source.
The WAEC certificate saga of President Buhari has raised serious concerns in recent weeks with the president insisting that his WAEC certificate was with the Nigerian Military.
According to him, “WAEC presents attestation certificate and confirmation of school cert result to President Buhari. What will the naysayers say next?”
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Registrar of the Council, Dr. Iyi Uwadiae, made the presentation at the president’s mini-conference hall at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday.
Uwadiae, who was accompanied by senior staff of the council, performed the ceremony during a courtesy visit to the State House.
The presentation was witnessed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu and other presidential aides.
Like in 2014, there was a renewed controversy over the school certificate of President Buhari in recent weeks, following the publication of his credentials for the February 2019 election.
According to INEC, the president said his school certificate result and other academic credentials were with the Nigerian military, which he served from 1961-1985, retiring as head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces
