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
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.
Mr. 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 qualifications.
