President Muhamadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) 2019 presidential candidate has failed to submit his academic records ahead of the 2019 elections.
The president’s academic credentials are not contained in his personal documents submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), according to PUNCH.
All the aspirants seeking elective positions in the country ought to submit certain documents, including their academic credentials, to the commission.
But Buhari, a former head of state, was quoted to have said his academic records are with the military board.
This is contained in an affidavit submitted in his form to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
In the affidavit, Buhari was quoted as saying: “I am the above named person and the deponent of this affidavit herein.
“All my academic qualification documents as filled in my Presidential form, APC/001/2015 are currently with the Secretary of the Military Board as of the time of this affidavit.”
In 2014, the president had also tendered the same submission in the build up of the 2015 elections.
