The matter of the certificate of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, ought to have been laid to rest by now. General Buhari’s old school, Government College Katsina, has made available the school copy of the result. Buhari had shortly before then said he took the secondary school leaving examination in 1961 along with late Chief of Staff Supreme Headquarters, Major-General Shehu Musa Yar’Adua, and former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Umar Abdullahi. From the statement of results published in the newspapers, his examination number was 8200002. What then is the issue being dragged again by the PDP and its hirelings? What the constitution requires is evidence that the presidential candidate has been educated up to at least school certificate level or its equivalent. Forget about the diploma from the War College in the United States, Buhari has shown that he went to secondary school, even releasing pictures of himself in school with his classmates. It’s time to stop this embarrassing campaign of calumny and face the issues in the election.
