After telling the Vanguard yesterday that they do not have Gen. Muhammadu Buhari’s certificate. the Nigerian Army backtracks admitting they actually do have the certificate in their possession.
The Director of Public Relations of the Nigerian Army, Brigadier Olaleye Lajide, dismissed the reports, saying the military have Buhari’s academic records and are waiting for him to apply for it
The military spokesman made the disclosure while responding to a text message from SaharaReporters seeking clarification about the status of Mr. Buhari’s records. Brigadier Lajide affirmed that the Nigerian Army is in possession of all records of serving, retired and deceased officers since its inception. He added, however, that all military officers are supposed to keep original copies of their certificates.
According to him, in the event where an officer loses his or her original copy of records, the concerned officer must officially apply for copies from the army.
