Why my SSCE certificate carries Sadiq Abubakar– Atiku Abubakar



By Sola Omoniyi, Lagos

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has come out to explain why his Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) certificate bore a different name, Sadiq Abubakar, instead of Atiku Abubakar.

The presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2023 Presidential election made the clarification through Dele Momodu who took to his X handle to convey the explanation.

Momodu, who was the Director of Strategic Communications of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, said the clarification is a response to allegations of forgery against his principal by members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). He claimed that some APC members had questioned the name ‘Sadiq Abubakar’ in Atiku’s WAEC certificate as against his other credentials.

Momodu, however, said he forwarded the questions to Atiku, who provided an answer for the discrepancy.

“Yes l used Sadiq Abubakar to sit for my WAEC and after passing my exams I went to swear an affidavit to say I am the same person as ATIKU Abubakar. I went to ABU as Atiku Abuakar and passed my Exams as Atiku Abubakar. Interviewed as Atiku Abubakar by the Federal Civil Service Commission and hired into the Customs Service as Atiku Abubakar. So where is forgery there?” Atiku stated
