The Nigerian army say they are not with Gen. Buhari's certificate

A few days ago, APC Presidential candidate, Buhari said he could not tender any of his academic certificates before INEC because they were all with the Military board and not at his disposal. (read here). Well, now the army has contradicted that claim, saying the do not keep the certificates of any serving or retired officer or soldier. A military source told Vanguard;
"The Army can not keep anybody’s original certificate because it is the personal property of the owner. The original certificate of any officer or soldier is only needed at the point of entry into the service either as a cadet officer entering the Nigerian Defence Academy, or the recruitment officers when interviewing recruits to be sent to the depot for training. That is so, because they are needed to verify what were in the photocopies supplied by them or from the necessary examining bodies.”
"Let me tell you now, in the Navy, the Navy Secretary, keep the documents of all Naval officers and ratings and not their original certificates which are their personal property."
