Constitutional lawyer, Prof. Itse Sagay, says

the qualification Maj.Gen Muhammadu Buhari

(retd.) has is equivalent to a Master’s degree,

Punch reports. He said,



“This whole discussion of Buhari’s

qualification is a negative

distraction from the legitimate

process of electioneering which

should involve issues, records of

the candidates, their character, and

their capacity to govern. These are

things we should be talking about.

“The constitution is very clear on

the issue of qualification. It states

that you are qualified to be a

President if you have achieved the

level of school certificate or its

equivalent. Buhari has been to

Military College in Britain, he has

been to colleges in India and USA,

involving high level of training and

intellect. “We need to ask if

participation and completion of

courses at these levels and the

basic officers training in Mons

Officers Cadet School are less than

school certificates. On the contrary,

you need school certificate to

attend those courses. So, if he has

attended all those courses, then

there is absolutely no need to be

talking about secondary school

certificates anymore. “So, this man

attended secondary school and we

hear he was even the head boy. He

has been to the Cadet School in

Mons, he attended the War College

in the US and was given a certificate

which is equivalent to a master’s

degree. Sagay said Nigeria had

continued to worsen under the

leadership of President Goodluck

Jonathan despite the fact that he

was the first doctorate degree

holder to become the President of

Nigeria. “If I may add, how has the

Ph.D of the President helped this


he said.
