- A senior WAEC official, Oshindeinde Adewunmi, has confirmed President Buhari's secondary school results
- Adewunmi said Buhari sat for eight subjects and scored five credits in WAEC
- The WAEC official, however, noted that it would be illogical to say that anybody who sat for eight subjects and scored five credits did not attend secondary school
Oshindeinde Adewunmi, a senior official of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and one of the witnesses of President Muhammadu Buhari at presidential election petition court, on Wednesday, July 31, confirmed the president's secondary school results.
The Nation reports that the official said during the cross examination that he is the deputy registrar in charge of school examination in Nigeria.

Legit.ng gathered that the petitioners, Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are challenging Buhari’s election at the last presidential election on some grounds including his qualification.
The petitioners claimed that the president did not have a school certificate for him to be qualified to run for election.
Adewunmi confirmed that the copy of the University of Cambridge school certificate tendered by Buhari on Tuesday, July 30, was what he certified.
The witness, who said he has been with WAEC for 30 years, confirmed that by the result, Buhari sat for eight subjects and scored five credits. He gave details as English C5, History C3, Geography C6, Hausa C5, Health Science C6
The witness said a person with such certificate cannot be said not to have attended secondary school.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that President Buhari on Tuesday, July 30, tendered the certified true copy of his school certificate before the tribunal.
It was reported that the president made the submission alongside 26 other documents, including academic credentials from University of Cambridge, West Africa School Certificate (WASC) 1961 for Provincial Secondary School, Katsina state while opening his defence.
