Buhari Opens Up On Why He Has Poor Educational Background

By Ikenga Chronicles December 15, 2016

President Muhammadu Buhari has on Thursday December 14 in a press statement,opened up on how he was unable to attend high academic excellence, stating that he was pre-occupied with coups and counter coups.

Buhari made this disclosure during the decoration of his Aide-De-Camp, Col. Mohammed Abubakar; and the Commander of the Presidential Air Fleet, Air-Vice Marshal Sadiq Kaita, with their new ranks at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Recall that Buhari has been accused of tendering forged WAEC certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) prior to the 2015 election.

While speaking, Buhari said: “I am happy with the intellectual approach of the military. In our time, there was no time for academic pursuit. It was all about war, coups and counter-coups.”

He said modern military required superiority of intellect and imagination to achieve victory in warfare.

While expressing happiness with the dazzling array of university degrees the newly-promoted officers had acquired, the President urged all officers to ensure the translation of academic achievements to performance in the field and other places of assignment. Buhari said in times of peace and stability, military officers should use such opportunity to pursue their intellectual transformation which should go side-by-side with hardware transformation of modern armies.

The President urged officers to read History, irrespective of their academic backgrounds, describing it as an important prerequisite for strategic learning and success in the military.

Buhari congratulated both officers on their various achievements in their services, calling on them to always be mindful of the welfare of those placed under their command.
