Nigeria‘s minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has asked Nigerians to pardon President Muhammadu Buhari over his certificate.
During a recent interview with Channels TV, Lai Mohammed says he thinks President Buhari should be pardoned because it has been 53 years since he left secondary school.
Mohammed believes that it is possible Buhari does not know where he kept his certificate again because to him, 53 years is a very long time.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are seeking nullification of the victory of President Buhari on the ground that he lacked the requisite educational qualification to contest the last presidential election.
Amongst the grounds of the petition was that Buhari did not possess the academic qualification necessary to contest the poll.
Also under cross-examination by the petitioners’ lawyer, Mr Kyari said he was 67 years old and that he had known the second respondent for nearly 40 years.
Mr Kyari also said he signed for and collected the Cambridge documents for the assessment by Cambridge.
He also confirmed that the curriculum vitae signed by Mr Buhari did not have any certificate listed, apart from the list of institutions attended by the President.
