During the 2015 presidential election the controversy emerged over the school leaving certificate of President Muhammadu Buhari, the candidate of the then opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
The then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had accused Buhari, a retired Major General, of not having a secondary school leaving certificate – the basic academic qualification for candidates competing to be president.
Finally, the military have found the certificate after the election.
Recently the 'Buhari certificate saga' took another turn when a witness in the corruption trial of Justice Adeniyi Ademola has alleged that the president gave the embattled judge N500,000 while his certificate controversy was pending before Mr Ademola.
NAIJ.com has collected five photos that prove that President Buhari is well-educated.
1. Buhari as a proper Katsina boy, attended the Katsina middle school (Daura & Maidua, 1948-1952) and later proceeded to the Katsina provincial secondary school (now Government college, Katsina) for his high education from 1956-1961.
From there, he went off to start his army education, like many boys of the north at that time.

2. To receive his military education Muhammadu went to Mons Officer Cadet School, Aldershot, United Kingdom (1962-1963). Generals Sani Abacha and Obasanjo also attended this academy. In Aldershot, Buhari was described as ‘an only pebble in the beach, a star in his calm and calculating disposition.’
3. In the year 1962, he joined the Nigerian Army and rose steadily through the ranks. He also attended Nigerian Military Training College (NMTC) in 1962.
4. The incumbent president is also an alumnus of the Indian Defence Services Staff College in Wellington from where he graduated in 1973. Former president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo also attended this college.
5. President Buhari also studied in the US Army War College (1979-1980) where he was described as “US Army War College (1979-1980) where he was described as “a gentleman, a soft-spoken soldier, who preserved the ethics of the profession almost as a Quarter-Master-General.
"He would touch the tip of his cap in greeting for a lady, would never enter a room with his beret on. Always careful with his language, would smile at every joke and would never do anything to rock the boat.”
