REVEALED: See What INEC Said About President Buhari’s Academic Qualification
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it was satisfied by the academic documents submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari to contest for the 2019 presidential election.
Mr Buhari’s early school certificate was one of the major grounds of a petition filed against his victory by Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
Atiku’s legal team said President Buhari claimed, in INEC filings, to have attended a school that could not be traced, adding that the president claimed to bear a certificate that was not in existence at the time he claimed to have obtained it.
But in its response to Mr Abubakar’s grounds at the Presidential Elections Petitions Tribunal in Abuja, INEC said it had no objections about Mr Buhari’s academic documents.
