Why Buhari Was Not Given Certificate In 2015 - WAEC

As the controversy continues in the social media and other mainstream platforms, the West African Examination Council (WAEC), has explained why the body was not able to give President Muhammadu Buhari an “attestation" of his result in 2015.

WAEC, through its Registrar, Iyi Uwadiae, had on Friday presented the attestation of results to Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

However, the action of WAEC stirred reactions among Nigerians, who questioned why Buhari was not issued the certificate in 2015 if it was a genuine issue.

Responding to a statement on Twitter, WAEC via it’s official Twitter handle simply wrote: “What happened was that Move On. Nigeria went to Ghana to ask for a record that is in Nigeria. Was the exam done in Ghana? And for the avoidance of doubt, only the candidate and a court of competent jurisdiction can ask the Council for any certificate/result.”
