The president had only submitted an affidavit where he claimed that his credentials were with the Secretary of the Military Board.

Buhari explained:” I am the above-named person and the deponent of this affidavit herein.

“All my academic qualification documents as filled in my Presidential form, APC/001/2015 are currently with the Secretary of the Military Board as of the time of this affidavit.”

Reacting in a post on his Twitter handle, Melaye wrote: “Atiku submitted His certificates to INEC, Buhari submitted excuses to INEC.
