I Lost My Original Certificate -- Tinubu’s Running Mate, Masari Tells INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been informed by Kabiru Masari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate's running mate, that his original credentials are missing.

In information provided to INEC and attached to an affidavit on the loss of his elementary and secondary school transcripts, he acknowledged this.

Masari's missing original certificate comes amid the debate surrounding Tinubu's primary and secondary school transcripts.

He claimed to have attended Masari Primary School in Katsina State between 1972 and 1978, graduating from Katsina Teachers College with a Grade 2 Certificate in 1982 and a Higher Certificate in 1995.

Masari claimed that in January 2021, he lost his Grade 2 Certificate from Katsina Teachers College and his First Leaving Primary School Certificate from Masari Primary School, both of which were given in Katsina State, when he was traveling within Wuse, Area FCT, Abuja (1972-78). He claims that every attempt to find the things was unsuccessful.

This was mentioned in a sworn document for "Loss of Some Original Documents" that was attached to the information he sent to INEC, and acquired from the Divisional Police Headquarter, Wuse Zone 3, Abuja.

"Ibrahim Kabiru Masari, male, Muslim, Nigerian citizen of Abubakar Rimi Crescent, National Assembly Quarters, Apo, FCT– Abuja, declare an oath and state as follows:

"That I am the above-named persons and bonafide owner of the under-listed documents.
