The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has expressed its satisfaction with the academic documents submitted by President Muhammadu Buhari while running for office.
Buhari’s early school certificate was one of the major grounds of a petition filed against his victory by his opponent, Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to Atiku’s legal team, Buhari claimed to have attended a school that could not be traced, adding that his certificate was not in existence at the time he claimed to have obtained it.
However, in response to Atiku’s grounds at the Presidential Elections Petitions Tribunal in Abuja, INEC said it had no objections about Buhari’s academic documents.
The commission said it was “satisfied with the educational qualification presented” by Buhari to contest for office, according to excerpts of its submission.
