The Nigerian Army has released the academic details of former military head of state and All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, but said it cannot vouch for the authenticity of his Senior Secondary Examinations results.
Speaking to the media, Army Spokesperson, Brigadier General Olajide Laleye, reversed the Army’s earlier position that it had copies of Buhari’s West African Secondary School Certificate.

Laleye said while military records showed 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 Buhari’s claim of obtaining those results was verified by the Army in the 1960s.
According PremiumTimes, military sources say while the Army spokesperson was addressing the media, the Department of Military Secretary the same day was dispatching to Buhari his academic records, which had been requested by the retired general.
