According to Buhari, he intentionally refused to disclose his certificate despite an outcry by Nigerians.
Buhari noted that sometime in 2018, “I was going through a drawer some days ago, and saw copies of my certificate. I always had it, but refused to release it, so that those venting spleen on it could please themselves.”
The ex-president was quoted as saying in chapter 5 of a book authored by his former media adviser, Femi Adesina.
Mathematics in the military was necessary, coupled with Geography. We were trained how to be dropped off in the bush, given only a pair of compass and since we’re not astronomers, you’ve to learn to find your way, calculate, using the Pythagoras Theorem and others to work out your position.”
