Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari was yesterday, issued a school certificate by the West African Examination Council.

In preparation for the 2019 Presidential Election, it was pertinent that the President produced his SSCE certification which is one of minimum requirements to contest for office (Buhari swore an affidavit in place of the certificate in 2015).

However, after the news made rounds, some Nigerians suspected foul play in the proceedings as they wanted to know why the President’s current passport photograph was used in the certificate for an exam which was allegedly written in 1961.

WAce has now explained why the president’s current passport appeared on the certificate, saying that since it is an attestation and not the original certificate, the passport photograph that was submitted during application is the one that would appear on the certificate when ready.

Waec tweeted ;

Let’s educate ourselves a bit:
1. President Buhari was given Attestation of Results not a certificate;
2. Attestation of Results is given to a candidate whose certificate is damaged or missing;
3. It carries the passport photo the candidate submitted during application.
