Bashir Ahmed, personal assistant to the president, Muhammad Buhari on social media matters, posted on Twitter a photograph of the president, which was seen among his classmates in a school in Kastina province back in the 1960s. In the past presidential elections of 2015 and 2019, the issue of presidential certificates and academic qualifications was the subject of an election campaign. Before the current presidential election, the actions of the PDP Petition Court and Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar became clear. Thus, Ahmed’s tweet was criticized for portraying a sixth-level chairman. Tweet display:
Many of you talking rubbish here, with your watery university degrees are nowhere near as educated as a Colonel in the NIgerian Army. It’s a kind a illiteracy to not know what it takes to be a General in the Nigerian Army.
