President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has told the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC that his credentials are still with the military.
Ahead of the 2019 general elections, Buhari again failed to attach necessary supporting documents, insisting that they were in the custody of the military.
In the affidavit which he swore to, Buhari said,
“I am the above named person and the deponent of this affidavit herein. All my academic qualification documents as filled in my Presidential form, APC/001/2015 are currently with the Secretary of the Military Board as of the time of this affidavit.”
Major rival in the upcoming poll, Atiku Abubakar on his part, submitted all relevant documents, with a Diploma in Law in 1969 from the Ahmadu Bello University being his highest qualification.
The former Vice-President also attached tax returns indicating that he had paid N10.8m in tax from 2015 to 2017 while declaring his income within the period as N60.2m.
Over 70 out of the 91 political parties are presenting presidential candidates that will participate in the 2019 Presidential elections.
