I Have No Certificate Scandal Like Buhari-Jonathan

By Ikenga Chronicles March 28, 2017

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has denied ever having a certificate
scandal and faulted the listing of his name by a national newspaper among
prominent Nigerians that have questions surrounding their academic

Jonathan’s denial is coming a day after the Presidency also refuted claims
that President Muhammadu Buhari also has a certificate issue.

Recall that Buhari, former President Jonathan and Sen Dino Melaye among
others, were listed by a newspaper as prominent Nigerians who have
certificate scandals around them.

However, a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by the former president’s
media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, dismissed the claim as lies and stressed that
Jonathan has “never been linked to any doubt, scandal or controversy
concerning his academic qualifications.”

He said, “We really don’t know where this is coming from, but we wish to
remain unambiguous in our assertion that this is obvious falsehood, since
the former President has never been linked to any doubt, scandal or
controversy concerning his academic qualifications.

“We are not aware of any probe, allegation or litigation relating to his
very well-known academic qualifications.

“For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to restate that former President
Jonathan’s educational records can easily be traced to St Michael’s Primary
School, Oloibiri and Mater Dei High School, lmiringi where he obtained his
first school leaving certificate and General Certificate of Education
Ordinary Level respectively, as well as the University of Port Harcourt,
where he received his Bachelor of Science, Master’s and Doctorate degrees.

“Luckily, many of former President Jonathan’s classmates from primary
school through the university are still alive and are traceable. It is
therefore obvious that there is no justification for this abstruse
association, as there is nothing linking the former President to the story.”
