Gen. Yar’Adua And I Wrote WASC, Joined Army Together – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari with a delegation from WAEC at the State House in Abuja on November 2, 2018.
 
President Muhammadu Buhari says he wrote the West African School Certificate (WASC) examination along with late General Shehu Musa Yar’Adua in 1961.
The President disclosed this in a series of tweets on Friday shortly after receiving the attestation and confirmation of his WASC examination result at the State House in Abuja.
Reacting to the controversy over his school certificate, he said he would not have attended the Defence Services Staff College in India (1973) and the United States Army War College (1979) if he had not sat for the examinations.
President Buhari said General Yar’Adua was his classmate back then and they spent about nine years together at both primary and secondary levels.
Having sat for the exam, he explained that they went ahead to join the Nigerian Army where they had to take a military examination, as one of the requirements.
The President was delighted that the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has validated his claims with the examination result presented to him.
He thanked the examination body for upholding its integrity over the years.

Today I received the attestation and confirmation of my 1961 West African School Certificate (WASC) Examination result, from the Registrar of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

As a Nigerian military officer, it would have been impossible for me to have attended the Defence Services Staff College in India in 1973, and, after that – in 1979 – the United States Army War College, had I not sat for the WASC examinations, which I did in 1961. pic.twitter.com/pqTGMpcyC2

The late General Shehu Musa Yar’Adua was my classmate. We spent close to nine years in boarding school, at primary and secondary levels. And from there, after our WASC, we moved to join the Army, where we had to take a military examination as one of the requirements.
