his certificates were in the possession of the Secretary,
Military Board.
The Nigerian Army has reportedly denied being in
possession of the academic credentials of the
Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress
(APC), Muhammadu Buhari .
Buhari had said in an affidavit submitted to the
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that
his certificates were in the possession of the Secretary,
Military Board. »
However, the Army in refuting the claim stated that it
does not hold on to the original certificates of either
retired or serving soldiers.
According to Vanguard » , a military source stated that
“the Army cannot keep anybody’s original certificate
because it is the personal property of the owner.”
The source also reportedly stated that original
certificates are only required upon admission into the
military and that the Army only keeps photocopies of
such credentials.
“The original certificate of any officer or soldier is only
needed at the point of entry into the service either as a
cadet officer entering the Nigerian Defence Academy, or
the recruitment officers when interviewing recruits to be
sent to the depot for training. That is so, because they
are needed to verify what were in the photocopies
supplied by them or from the necessary examining
bodies,” the source said.
The source also reportedly added that anyone claiming
that the Military Secretary is in possession of his
original certificates is doing so because of an “ulterior
motive.”
