Alhaji Murtala Yakubu Ajaka was indeed a student of Barewa College
Barewa College, Zaria Kaduna State has confirmed that Alhaji Murtala Yakubu Ajaka was indeed a student of the school.
Reaching to an earlier letter which the school was reported to have written in response to an enquiry to verify his history in the school the Principal Mallam Alhassan Isyaku apologized that there was an inadvertent a mix up.
The letter addressed to the Chairman of the Kogi East Elders Forum, Chief Gabriel Aduku, said its earlier response was an error of omission.
“After additional investigation of our archived records I confirm that the Murtala Yakubu with registration number 14667 was a student of the college from 1996 to 1998.
A statement issued by Faruk Adejoh-Audu Director of Communications to Social Democratic Party, SDP, Governorship candidate, However, he did not sit for WAEC in 1998 in the college hence the absence of his name in the 1998 WAEC Gazette.
“I apologise for the error and we are available should you need further clarification. “
The Alhaji Murtala Yakubu Ajaka Campaign Organization wishes to assure all our teeming supporters that there is indeed no cause for alarm.
The error of omission by the school was as a result of the fact that the original enquiry was couched to verify the WAEC Certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which Alhaji Ajaka never said emanated from the school.
Rather it was an external GCE Certificate issued directly to the candidate by the Examination Council.
The public is therefore urged to disregard the campaign of calumny by desperate individuals based on the earlier erroneous communications.
