The Presidency has explained how President Muhammadu Buhari got his certificate from the West African Examination Council, WAEC, after many years.
His special assistant on New media, Bashir Ahmaad in response to questions on how Buhari collected his certificate, urged Nigerians with missing certificates to apply.
Ahmad said all the president did was to pay N20,000 and submit two photographs to WAEC.
He wrote: “In case you don’t know, just as President Buhari did, you can also obtain ‘Attestation of Results’ from WAEC Nigeria.
“Lost your certificate? Submit your two recent passport photographs and pay N20,000 in draft, WAEC will do the rest for you.”
We recalls that Buhari had been under attack after he failed to submit his credentials to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as the various presidential candidates’ credentials were made available.
Buhari only submitted an affidavit where he claimed that his credential was with the Secretary of the Military Board.
However, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Friday announced that President Muhammadu Buhari had received the attestation certificate and confirmation of school certificate result from the West African Examination Council, WAEC.
