A statement issued yesterday in Abuja by Maduekwe, maintained that the integrity of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not in doubt, adding that he was known for transparency and due process.
“My attention has just been drawn to an unnecessary controversy over the question of Buhari’s credentials. I want to say that the on-line controversy is uncalled for because Buhari is a man whose antecedents are well known. His integrity is not in doubt, he is known for transparency and due process.
“We are in the age of search engines any effort to goggle Buhari’s credentials will yield the required results. He attended Katsina Provincial School where he was a school prefect and Head Boy before proceeding to the Nigerian Military Training College which was later renamed Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA), the records are there.
“There is no how he would have proceeded to the academy if he did not have the requisite academic qualifications from the provincial school. Haven attended defence school he attended several military institutions at home and abroad including Anderlecht in the United Kingdom, other military institutions in the USA and India.
