This is Gen. Muhammad Buhari’s 1961 WASSCE RESULT as released by the Government College Katsina.
BuhariGate: The inconsistencies Continue…
Pa Buhari said:
“I graduated in 1961 with many prominent Nigerians, including General Shehu Yar’Adua, former chief of staff at the Supreme Headquarters.”
General Shehu Yar’Adua joined the Army in 1959. (See his profile on Wikipedia).
Now I ask:
Was late General Shehu Yar’Adua in Secondary school with Pa Buhari in 1961, two years after he joined the Army?
Was late General Shehu Yar’Adua in Secondary school with Pa Buhari at the same time that he was in Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst?
Tell one lie, you will need 1m lies to cover that one lie#
Nigerians are watching!
Further observations on Buhari Statement of Result. Was there Katsina state in 1961?
Did we have State Ministry of Education in 1961?
Katsina was a province then, why was the result transfered to state ministry of education letter headed paper?
How old was GMB then? See the passport on the result. Am just asking out of ignorance o..
Then results didnt come with pictures at that time. My SSCE result didnt have my pix attached to it in 1988 talk more of 1961….
Government College, formerly Provincial Secondary School, Katsina, which Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, graduated from in 1961, has released Mr. Buhari’s secondary school certificate examination results.
The results, obtained exclusively by PREMIUM TIMES Wednesday, confirm Mr. Buhari’s claim that he undertook the University of Cambridge West African School Certificate Examinations and obtained five credits in English Language, Geography, Hausa Language, History, and Health Science.
PREMIUM TIMES obtained the computer printout from Cambridge University as well as a statement of result, signed by the current principal of Katsina College, dated January 21, 2015.
The results show that Mr. Buhari, a former military head of state, failed in Mathematics and Woodwork, and had a pass in Literature in English.
The examination centre number was 8280, while Mr. Buhari’s candidate number was 002.
The statement of results is printed on the letter head paper of the Katsina State Ministry of Education, and it shows that the examination took place in 1961.
The Cambridge print out also shows the result of 17 other candidates at the centre, including Shehu Yar’adua, a former Chief of Staff, Supreme Headquarters.
Controversy over Mr. Buhari’s result escalated Tuesday after the Nigerian Army, which had earlier admitted to having copies of his certificate, reversed itself, saying it could not even attest to the details listed in his records.
The spokesperson of the Army, Olajide Laleye, said “Neither the original copy, certified true copy (CTC) nor statement of result of Major-.Gen. Mohammadu Buhari‘s WASC result is in his personal file.”
He said while it is the practice in the Nigerian Army that before candidates are shortlisted for commissioning into the officers’ cadre of the service, the selection board verifies the original copies of credentials as presented, “There is no available record to show that this process was followed in the 1960s.”
The military’s comments came after the retired general had said that his lost copies of results were with the Army, an explanation he gave ahead of elections February 14.
