My Original Certificate Missing, Says Tinubu’s Running Mate, Masari

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been informed by Kabiru Masari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s running mate and the APC’s presidential candidate, that his original credentials are missing.

The change occurs in the midst of the debate about Tinubu’s primary and secondary school transcripts.

According to reports, Masari deposed to an affidavit about the loss of his primary and secondary school diplomas in the details he filed to INEC.

He did, however, claim to have attended Masari Primary School in Katsina State between 1972 and 1978 and to have earned both a Higher Certificate and a Grade 2 Certificate from the Katsina Teachers College.

Masari stated in the sworn affidavit for “Loss of Some Original Documents” obtained from the Divisional Police Headquarter, Wuse Zone 3, Abuja, attached to the information he provided to INEC, that he lost his Grade 2 Certificate from Katsina Teachers College and his First Leaving Primary School Certificate issued by Masari Primary School, Katsina State, in January 2021 while on transit within Wuse, Area FCT, Abuja (1972-78).

Additionally, he said that all efforts to find the objects had been ineffective.

Masari’s sworn affidavit read in part: “Ibrahim Kabiru Masari, male, Muslim, Nigerian citizen of Abubakar Rimi Crescent, National Assembly Quarters, Apo, FCT– Abuja, declare an oath and state as follows:

“That I am the above-named persons and bonafide owner of the under-listed documents. That sometimes in January 2021, while on transit within Wuse Area, FCT– Abuja, I discovered that my original Certificate of Occupancy of plot NoKT 17522, GRA Katsina Estate; Certificate of Kaduna State Development Centre from 1994-95; Grade 11 Certificate from Katsina Teachers College from 1979-83 and First Leaving School Certificate issued by Masari Primary School Katsina State from 1972-78 got lost. That all efforts made to trace the documents proved abortive, hence this affidavit. That this affidavit is required for record purpose and for all authorities and persons concerned to take note,” the affidavit reads in part.

To satisfy the INEC deadline for submitting candidate names for the 2023 elections, Tinubu chose Masari as a stand-in.
