Presidency, WAEC disagree over application for Buhari’s result

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) and the presidency have disagreed over the application which led to the issuance of an Attestation of Results to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday.

We would not have given him the document if he didn’t apply. It is only Buhari or a court that can ask for the results. There is no other person. So he asked for it –WAEC

No, the President did not apply for the documents. I made this clear in an opinion I wrote on Friday. The presentation of the documents to the President was strictly an initiative of WAEC – Presidency

While the Presidency insisted that Buhari didn’t apply for the results of the West African School Certificate Examination, which he claimed to have sat for in 1961, the examination body said the document was issued because the President applied for it.

In an interview with The Punch NG, WAEC’s spokesman, Damianus Ojijeogu, insisted the examination body would not have given the Attestation of Results to the president if he had not applied for it.

“We would not have given him the document if he didn’t apply. It is only Buhari or a court that can ask for the results. There is no other person. So he asked for it,” Ojijeogu stated.

Buhari received the documents amidst the controversy generated over his claim in his details presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission that his credentials were with the Military Board.

The board had subsequently declared the President’s certificate missing, hence the need for him to get an attestation and a confirmation.
