Former head of state and presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015 poll, General Muhammadu Buhari, has said that his credentials are verifiable in spite of the fact the he does not have them at hands.
Buhari stated this yesterday in a statement signed by the Director of Publicity, Buhari 2015 Support Group Centre, Dr Chidia Maduekwe and stated in Abuja.
According to Buhari, the controversy over the propriety of his credentials is a non-issue on the grounds that his antecedents and integrity are impeccable.
The statement reads in part: “The online controversy is uncalled for because General Buhari is a man whose antecedents are well known. His integrity is not in doubt, he is known for transparency and due process. We are in the age of search engines any effort to goggle General Buhari’s credentials will yield the required results.
“He attended Katsina Provincial School where he was a school prefect and Head Boy before proceeding to the Nigerian Military Training Collage which was later renamed Nigeria Defence Academy, the records are there.
“There is no how he would have proceeded to the academy if he did not have the requisite qualifications from the provincial school. Haven attended defence school, he attended several military institutions at home and abroad including Anderlecht in the United Kingdom, other military institutions in the USA and India. These records are there. I want to disabuse the minds of Nigerians that those peddling campaign questioning his qualifications are engaging in an enterprise in futility because it is a non -issue”
