Popular gospel singer claims the Buhari’s certificate is a fake
Okposo supposedly claims that some subjects written by the former Head of State weren’t included in the West African Examination Council, popularly known as WAEC, curriculum in 1961.
The release of the certificate of All Progressives Congress’ (APC) Presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, by the West African Examination Council (WAEC), happened to have been received with mixed feelings by the social media users inclusive of Nigerian celebrities.
One of the many celebrities is popular Gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, who claims that Gen. Buhari’s WAEC certificate is forged and says some things don’t add up.
Okposo clarified the fact that some subjects supposedly written by Gen. Buhari weren’t in the WAEC curriculum in 1961 – the year Buhari claimed he wrote his senior school certificate exams.
It is quite clear that the award-winning gospel singer is a die-hard supporter of President Goodluck Jonathan who is contesting for a second term under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
To show his support for Jonathan, he wrote earlier:
“Positive and meaningful change means moving/going forward not 32 years backwards”
