Just like the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, his running mate or “placeholder”, Alhaji Kabiru Masari, has notified the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) about the loss of his original certificates.
Masari had indicated in the documents he submitted to INEC that he had deposed to an affidavit about the loss of his primary and secondary schools certificates just like Tinubu.
Masari claimed that he attended Masari Primary school, Katsina State between 1972-78 and obtained a Grade 2 Certificate from Katsina Teachers College in 1982 and a Higher Certificate in 1995.
The vice-presidential candidate had stated that in January 2021, while on transit within Wuse, Area FCT, Abuja, lost the C of O for a land located in GRA, Katsina along with his Grade 2 Certificate from Katsina Teachers College and First Leaving Primary School Certificate issued by Masari Primary School, Katsina State, (1972-78).
According to him, all efforts made to trace the items proved abortive.
The complainant was, however, issued with Police Extract and was informed that the extract is not a substitute for the lost items and was advised to go to any competent court of law to swear to an affidavit to enable him to get a replacement from the issuing authority.
