Buhari’s 1961 class photograph that got the aide’s Twitter followers talking

Twitter followers of President Muhammadu Buhari‘s personal assistant on social media, Bashir Ahmad, committed to each other on the photo of the president showing him among his classmates at his provincial school of Katsina in 1961.

The president, then young in the photo, is sitting fifth from the left, with two white men presumably as officials of his school.

In the run-up to the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections, the topics relating to the President’s certificate and academic qualification were issues related to the campaign.

Once again, in the present case presented before the presidential election petition court by the opposition PDP and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, the President’s certificates also occupied a prominent place.

As a result, Ahmad’s tweet on the President’s Class VI photograph received criticism.
