@AMADICHIMA Gudmorning Dr. I'm going to do a thread about what I read from Col Gbulie, maybe you can throw more light on it. Together, we are on #ProjectRescueNigeria
More light have been thrown on the controversy surrounding the APC presidential candidate, Buhari and his release of a Toronto certificate to online media instead of INEC by Col. Ben Gbulie (rtd)'s scholastic narrative.
@AMADICHIMA The situation in Nigeria pre and post Independent where unqualified people are favoured against the qualified, made it impossible for due process and that was how Buhari joined the army in 1962 and less than 2 months to this date, he had a letter claiming to be a student
@AMADICHIMA He was six months in Military training school and went to UK and stayed six months for 3 years course, there was no time in record that Buhari went back to college to complete his secondary school
@AMADICHIMA According to Col. Ben Gbulie (rtd) writing, "By 1960, shortly after Nigeria's independence, the Prime Minister, Alhaji Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, had directed the Principal of King's College,Lagos, Mr. P.H. Davies, to provide places, annually, for at least 15 boys from the North
@AMADICHIMA In an attempt to catch up militarily, the Northern politicians had thrown out all discretion.They had lowered standards of admission, settling for the minimum. For as I recalled, all the Northerners in my intake had been trained at Mons Officer Cadet School in Aldershot - Gbulie
@AMADICHIMA And they had become officers after barely six months of military training, whereas those of us who had been sent to Sandhurst had had to do two long years to earn the Queen's Commission. The implications were quite clear - and most disturbing - Gbulie
@AMADICHIMA They became commissioned officers before we were halfway through our first year at Sandhurst, they had all risen to the enviable rank of Captain before we could even appear at the sovereign's parade which served essentially as a prerequisite for our passing out as 2nd Lt - Gbulie
@AMADICHIMA By 1964 a group of young Nigerian officer-cadets had been declared academically unfit and hence repatriated by the Canadian military authorities. These cadets were however pronounced commissioned by the Nigerian Federal Government no sooner than they had arrived the Ikeja Airport
@AMADICHIMA "Consequently they had had to be absorbed into the Nigerian Army as commissioned officers, even though they had received no requisite military training."
----- Col Ben Gbulie (rtd) in "Nigeria's Five Majors" page 13, published 1981
@AMADICHIMA "Zak (Maimalari) had held the rank of Captain in 1960. But before my return from the United Kingdom in 1963, he had soared to the top rank of Brigadier" - Gbulie
@AMADICHIMA "In other words, he had risen from Captain to Temporary/Major, to Substantive/Major, to Temporary/Lieutenant-Colonel, to Substantive/Colonel and then to Brigadier, all within that short span of time. It was just scandalous" - Gbulie
@AMADICHIMA It is a shame that Pa Buhari entered the Army with a false document and not meeting the prerequisite, insisted on contesting the 2015 presidential election, knowing fully well that he has no secondary school certificate and now, he wants to continue same falsehood in 2019
@AMADICHIMA If Pa Buhari is man enough, let him submit the doctored 'School Certificate' to INEC or any government department and he will earn himself a ticket to prison.

Nigeria Must not be drawn back to another mediocre, his joke is getting out of hand. #ProjectRescueNigeria
