President Muhammadu Buhari has received an attestation certificate and confirmation of school certificate result from the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
Femi Adesina, special adviser on media and publicity to the President, disclosed this on Twitter Friday afternoon and taunted the President’s critics, who have been wailing over his certificate.
“WAEC presents attestation certificate and confirmation of school cert result to President Buhari. What will the naysayers say next?” he tweeted.
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.
Newsday recalls that 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
The main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Oct. 26 challenged Buhari to show proof of his integrity by presenting his academic credentials “if he has any,” to the INEC.
