The examination officer, Government College, Katsina, Kabir Ahmed has explained why the school authorities attached a recent passport photograph of the presidential candidate of the APC, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari to his statement of result.
Mixed reactions have been trailing the result of the former Head of State released by the school authorities as many are demanding explanations for the appearance of a 2014 passport photograph on a 54-year-old result.
According to Daily Post, the examination officer confirmed that the school authorities decided to release the result after the owner had demanded for it.
Asked if the Daura General personally applied for it, Kabir said,
“must he apply for it in person? We received a message that one of our ex students was demanding for his result and we had to release it. However, we are still expecting him to come in person for verification.”
Clearing air on the use of Buhari’s recent passport photograph on the controversial result, Kabir said:
“this happened over 54 years ago. My work is to release the result as demanded, which I did. We have to attach his recent passport because we could not locate the one he used during registration. The issue now is, they demanded for the result and I’ve done my job”
When prodded further to explain why the result bears ‘Katsina’ State which was not created as at the time Buhari sat for the exam, Kabir said:
“Mr. Journalist, I am going for prayer now, please call me back.”
When this correspondent tried to reach him, his number was perpetually switched off.
