President Muhammadu Buhari has tendered a certified true copy (CTC) of the result sheet of University of Cambridge, West Africa School Certificate 1961 for Provincial Secondary School, Katsina while opened his defence at the Presidential Election Petition Court [PEPC] on Tuesday.
President Buhari also tendered some other documents, including copies of his academic credentials.
Buhari, who is the second respondent in the petition by the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] and its canidate, Atiku Abubakar, meanwhile, has called his first witness, Major General Paul Chabir Tarfa.
He has also called another witness, his Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari.
Major General Tarfa said he was a mate with the President in the Nigeria Army and that they were all enlisted on April 16, 1962.
He said they were enlisted upon passing the examination and that they were thought in all the courses they attended in English.
However, under cross-examination by lawyer to the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC], Yunus Usman [SAN] the witness said they were not asked to submit their certificates to the Nigeria Army.
Contrary to claims by President Buhari that his West Africa Examination Council [WAEC] certificate is with the Nigerian Army, his course mate affirmed that no personnel enlisted by Army handed over their certificates to the Army.
Note the exchange between Usman [SAN] and Major General Tarfa below:
Usman: “You submitted all your school certificates to the Nigerian Army when you were enlisted?”
Witness: “There was nothing of such.”
