VIDEO: Obasanjo Weighs In On Buhari’s Certificate Controversy, in London


During a book launch in London, former President Olusegun Obasanjo told a packed hall that the controversy surrounding Muhammadu Buhari’s possession of a school certificate was trivial distraction by President Goodluck Jonathan’s team. Obasanjo stated that there was no one during his time in the army that didn’t have a prerequisite qualification to enter the army. Speaking further, he said even if that wasn’t case Buhari’s training at the Nigerian Army staff college and the US War College were more than the required qualification to become president.

The former president’s book, “My Watch” is banned in Nigeria by a court order obtained by President Jonathan’s political associate and a wanted drug baron, Kashamu Buruji.
