(Premium Times) The Nigerian Army on Tuesday publicly released the
academic details of former military leader, Muhammadu Buhari, but denied
at the same time it could not vouch for the authenticity of his Senior
Secondary Examinations results.
Speaking to the media, Army Spokesperson, Olajide Laleye, reversed
the Army’s earlier position that it had copies of Mr. Buhari’s West
African Secondary School Certificate.
Laleye said while military records showed Mr. Buhari obtained the WASC
in 1961, with credits in English Language, Geography, History, Health
Science, and Hausa, there were neither the original copy nor certified
true copy nor statement of result to confirm the grades.
He also said the Army could not confirm whether Mr. Buhari’s claim
of obtaining those results was verified by the Army in the 1960s.
But military sources say while the Army spokesperson was
addressing the media, the Department of Military Secretary the same day
was despatching to Mr. Buhari his academic records, which had been
requested by the retired general.
Premium Times has obtained copies of the records showing the
military duly noted that Mr. Buhari obtained the requisite WASC
