The examination body’s registrar, Dr. Uyi Uwadiae, presented the certificate to the president at the State House. Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, who confirmed the report wrote;
“WAEC presents attestation certificate and confirmation of school cert result to President Buhari. What will the naysayers say next?”
President Buhari’s official photographer, Bayo Omoboriwo also wrote;
“President Buhari receives attestation and confirmation of result from West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) registrar in State House on 2nd Nov 2018”
Recall that Femi Adesina in a previous st claimed that the Military lost Buhari’s certificate.
“The military knew where they kept the original certificates of the president. In fact, a former chief of defence Staff, Gen. Alani Akinrinade, corroborated that the military collected the original certificates of all its officers,” he had said.
“The military already said they lost the certificates. But does it mean that it did not exist that the president went to school, sat for examinations and passed; attended military courses and War College?”
Alex Ajayi, former registrar, West African Examination Council (WAEC), had told PUNCH in 2016 that he issued Buhari’s certificate.
“I joined the West African Examination Council as a pioneer staff. I was the first substantive Nigerian Assistant Registrar. I took over the control of the examination from the University of Cambridge. I took examiners to Cambridge for training across 10 years and trained them in Nigeria. I had the opportunity of issuing WAEC certificates to three former Heads of State: Buhari, Abacha and Babangida in the 60s,” he told the newspaper in an interview.
