We can’t verify results without Buhari’s permission –UK varsity

Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)

The University Of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES), now known as Cambridge Assessment, in response to requests to prove the authenticity of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s exam certificate, has said on Friday that it will not be able to do so.

In a statement made available on its website, the institution said, “We can only confirm or verify results at the direct request of or with the permission of a candidate.”

“This is in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 and section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.”

The organisation also confirmed that according to the Regulations for 1961, African Language papers, including those for Hausa were set for the West African School Certificate.

Established over 150 years ago, Cambridge Assessment operates and manages the university’s three exam boards and carries out leading-edge academic and operational research on assessment in education.
