In regard of the recent Global Education Submit, It has been made known through a 3 minutes video clip as it was recorded of him, the first citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammad Buhari GCFR says:
“Education is a starting point because you cannot succeed beyond an ordinary educational qualification.”

Despite the inability of the President Buhari to provide his West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) result to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) during the 2015 elections has also given a speech addressing the world on education.
This must have really grieved some Nigerians as a statement gotten from reports stated by a WAEC official, Osidehinde Adewunmi saying, “I cannot say whether it is a certificate because my signature is not on the document. It is not bearing my name or the name of my organization.
“This document is bearing the name of Cambridge University Assessment International Education. It is not from the West Africa Examination Council. This is the foundation, the primary foundation for the issuance of a certificate. This is not a certificate. I have never worked with the University of Cambridge.”
On the other hand, Buhari said with Nigeria’s large population, it is a major challenge for any administration. However, making people realize that education is the starting point.
He concluded his conversation with the interviewer by giving a promising statement to increase the education budget for the year 2022.
