Why President Buhari declined to make his WASC result public —Adesina

Date:

The former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina, unveils the reasons behind the ex-president’s decision not to disclose his WAEC result during the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections in his book, ‘Working with Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015 – 2023).’ Buhari expressed deliberate resistance to releasing his West African School Certificate, stating that he allowed critics to “please themselves.”

Despite public outcry in the lead-up to the 2019 elections, Buhari maintained that his credentials were with the Secretary to the Military Board.

However, in November 2018, he was presented with a Letter of Attestation by officials of the West African Examination Council.

Buhari explained that he had always possessed the certificate but refrained from releasing it to let critics have their way.

In the book’s fifth chapter, Buhari emphasized the importance of his WASC examinations for attending the Defence Services Staff College, India (1973), and the United States Army War College.

He recounted his educational journey alongside Gen. Musa Yar’adua, highlighting the rigorous military examination in English, Mathematics, and General Knowledge.

Adesina’s book also delves into Buhari’s decision not to dismiss the embattled Central Bank of Nigeria governor, Godwin Emefiele, amidst speculations about his 2023 presidential ambitions.

Additionally, Buhari expressed a preference for extraditing Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, to face trial in Nigeria rather than resorting to elimination.
