Oshideinde Adewunmi, a former official of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), says President Muhammadu obtained a Cambridge University West African Examination certificate.

Adewunmi, a witness called to the stand by Wole Olanipekun, Buhari’s counsel, said this while being cross-examined by Livy Uzokwu, counsel of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Wednesday.

The former WAEC official, however, noted that Cambridge certificate presented to the tribunal has a typographical error.

He explained that the Cambridge certificate has “Mohamed Buhari” rather than “Muhammadu Buhari” as the name of the second respondent.

Adewunmi said although the Cambridge certificate has six subjects, the president sat for eight in 1961.

Buhari wrote the exams with 17 others and had an aggregate of 32, the witness said.

According to him, Buhari was listed as number two in the order of those who took the exams.

The witness said the president passed English, history, geography, Hausa and health science.

Mohammed Kwatu, another witness called to the stand by Olanipekun, spoke on the 2019 presidential election.

He said there was no over voting in his ward in Niger state.

When asked if he knows that election would not hold if a card reader failed to accredit voters, Usman said: “I don’t know.”

Thereafter, Olanipekun prayed for an adjournment till Thursday.

The tribunal led my Mohammed Garba granted his request.

The petitioners – PDP and Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate – argued that Buhari did not have the qualification to hold the highest office in the country.
