Reactions As President Buhari Receives His WAEC Certificate

The West African Examination Council has presented attestation certificate and confirmation of school certificate result to President Muhammadu Buhari. The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, disclosed this on his Twitter handle, @FemAdesina, on Friday.

Adesina wrote, “WAEC presents attestation certificate and confirmation of school cert result to President Buhari. What will the naysayers say next?”
Photos of the certificate presentation at the State House followed and Nigerians have been reacting to the news, demanding to know why he is just collecting his certificate from WAEC, after he had presented a sworn affidavit to the Independent National Electoral Commission, claiming that his certificate was with the military.

However, here are questions Nigerians are asking

8. Questions For WAEC and President Buhari

1. Does WAEC or any educational institution or examination body in Nigeria have the power to issue certificate the SECOND time after the first is issued and without first retrieval of the first certificate (just as they have done in the case of President Muhammadu Buhari)?

2. Does WAEC or any educational institution or examination body in Nigeria (and globally) have the right to issue a fresh certificate to an individual after a previous issuance even when the individual never reported that the previous certificate contains error nor returned same to allow for a fresh certificate to be issued (just as they have done in the case of President Muhammadu Buhari)?

3. Is it not expected of WAEC or any educational institution or examination body in Nigeria to issue a certified true copy of certificate to individuals whose certificates got lost, stolen or damaged, as with the global norm and policy?

4. If President Buhari swore on oath on five occasions (2003, 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2019) that his original WAEC certificate was with the Military board, does it not amount to fraudulent practice for him to be issued a fresh certificate by WAEC?

5. If President Muhammadu Buhari applied to WAEC for misplaced/stolen/damaged original certificate, is WAEC permitted under the law to issue a fresh certificate or a certified true copy of the previous certificate?

6. If question 5 is the case, does it not amount to deception under oath by President Muhammadu Buhari to have alleged in his affidavit that his certificate was with the military board instead, and thereby committing perjury?

7. Has Nigeria become a Banana Republic where those in power are permitted to do as they please without regards for procedures, policies and laws?

8. If WAEC claim that the new certificate issued to President Muhammadu Buhari is "Attestation Certificate", is it ideal for such to be issued when the President swore to oath that the original still exist and is with the military? Or Was it a false attestation made by President Buhari?

Debts/Liabilities inherited by Buhari Admin in 2015:

Pension/Salary Arrears: N740bn

Oil Subsidy Debt: N350bn

Paris Club Overdeductions: $5.4bn

JV CashCall Arrears: $6.8bn

Contractor Debt/EEG Debt: N1.9 Trn

Refunds to States for Roads: N488bn

Total: 7 TRILLION Naira

You can’t understand where we are today without understanding where we’re coming from. At least 7 TRILLION Naira in unpaid debts/liabilities, accumulated between 1999-2015, inherited by Buhari Administration.

All now being paid/settled. Even amidst relatively-low oil prices.

Look at Salaries/Pensions arrears. Examples abound: Nigerian Airways staff laid off 2003/4,unpaid until 2018. Delta Steel Co, Ex-Biafra Police Officers (pardoned since 2000)

See this thread from earlier this year by former Finance Minister @HMKemiAdeosun:

Look at Paris Club Overdeductions. The monies in question date back to the period between 1995 and 2002. (FG over-deducted money from States for repayment of Paris Club debt)

In 2016 PMB directed that the claims of over-deduction be formally reconciled by the DMO.

The reconciliation started in November 2016. The first set of Refunds (50%) to State Governments were released between Dec 2016 & Sept 2017.

Balance of 50% - amounting to ~$2.7bn - has just been paid, in fulfillment of PMB’s Promise:

Another Debt Paid.

It's a pity that many Nigerians can no longer reason having been blinded or delusioned with ethno religious sentiment and hatred. While they spend fortune on data to upload or download rubbish, selfies, posting and sharing unverified posts, less attention is given to research.

I have read many comments on PMB recently acquired WAEC certificate and I can only conclude that many are actually educated but illiterate, walloping in their high level of ignorance while wailing in the ocean of bitterness and hatred thereby alluding it to hunger and poverty in the land.

You may need to ask the following salient questions concerning the certification after which your eyes of understanding may be opened with the answers provided below, thereby making you to discuss intelligently with wisdom irrespective of your political lineage or belief

1. Is it possible to get another certificate to replace the lost one?

Answer : No

2. How come that WAEC presented another certificate to PMB?


WAEC never presented
another certificate to PMB but Attestation based on request.

3. What is the difference between attestation and certificate or Why Attestation instead of certificate?


Attestation is a validity of any result upon which a certificate can be issued or has been issued.

4. What happened to PMB original WAEC result?

Answer : Ask the Army headquarter ( IBB)

5. Why should WAEC issue him with attestation? Is it because he is the president?

Answer :

WAEC can issue anyone with attestation irrespective of the person background upon request by the individual and backed up with a police report and court affidavit.

6. How come the certificate looked new with recently taken passport photograph as displayed on the PMB WAEC CERTIFICATE?

Answer :

What was issued is not certificate but attestation which normally comes with an embossed recently taken passport photograph in accordance with the WAEC rules and regulations that guide the conduct
