Nigerian minister of Defence, General Aliyu Gusau has confirmed that he was a school mate of General Muhammadu Buhari who is currently the Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) for the February 14 election.
“You know that I’m not a politician but the truth needs to be told that I know Buhari since 1960. He passed through the school that I also attended. He sat for his Cambridge/ WASC examination and came out with Division 2. He then joined the Army, rose to become Major General and Head of State.”
General Gusau, who reacted today to the lingering controversies dogging the secondary school certificate of General Buhari when he spoke to newsmen, wondered why uptil now, the Old Students Association which was formed years ago had not come out to defend its member, in the person of General Buhari.
“We had just formed an association of old students of Katsina Provincial School, right from when it was a Middle School till date. And His Royal Highness, the Emir of Katsina, as an ex student of the school, invited some of us as the representatives of different sets, to his palace and we decided to even form a secretariat. I thought that the secretariat of our association should have clarified the status of Buhari’s certificates long before it took this dimension.”
General Gusau said that he met General Buhari in the Katsina Provincial Secondary School when he was enrolled into the School in January 1960, the year of independence.
“General Buhari, at that, was in form five. I stayed two years with General Buhari at the school. They passed out in 1961 and we passed out in 1964. Buhari had leadership qualities since secondary school; in form five, he was a House Prefect.
“Their set went up to form six but we were the first set that finished school at form five. Normally, out of those in form five, the school authorities used to pick House Prefects and when they get to form six, House Captains were chosen from those who were House Prefects. In Buhari’s case, he was a House Prefect in 1960 when we joined. By 1961, when he was in form six, he was chosen to be the Head Boy of the School.
“There were four Houses during our time in the school; Magaji House, Kaura House, Alkali House and Durbi House. Buhari was the House Prefect of Magaji House in 1960, Justice Umaru Abdullahi was the House Prefect of Alkali House, the late Mamman A Zango who became a policeman, was House Prefect of Kaura House while the late General Shehu Musa Yarádua was House Prefect of Durbi House. By 1961, all of them became the House Captains of their respective Houses but Buhari became the Head Boy.”



  1. Thank you for this device clarification, evil people that are bent in formeting trouble in the coming election in the name of certificate forgery will be cast to fire. Fani kayode pay day is fast approaching

  2. Why are you bothered..If Buhari has only tissue paper as certificate Nigerians will vote for him. enough of PDP evils in the country..APC will win and anyone that doesn't like it can leave Nigeria.

  3. Your comment is immaterial.Inec requirement is for Candidates to attach copies of their credentials.If Gen.Buhari had complied.this long stretch of stories could have averted.Gen.Babangida is evasive,and was vainly advising against undermining the military.Is INEC issue a military affairs?May be he could be doing this to mitigate Gen. Buhari revenge after all the incarceration that visited him after his over throw.Gen.Obasanjo was defending a formal closed PDP affairs in public domain and that a General talk only when he wish to talk.Then leave politics and return to the barrack.For God sake,Politics is not a regimental affairs,if you must play it,match it.

  4. Nonsense!
    Go and tell that to Fani Kayode.
    Even if Buhari had no school mates,his examination number is more than enough to convince us.

  5. Ogbemudia Terry Osayawe Nekon James Still not satisfied? Terry I told you to give sometime to clarify your doubts, hopefully this answers all your previous questions.. #over
