Despite the release of the school certificate result of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, the controversy over the released result has not subsided.

A research report by an educationist and Professor of Educational Foundations at the University of Ilorin, A. A. Adeyinka, has punched holes in the claims by Buhari that he sat for and got a credit pass in Hausa Language from the Provincial College (now Government College), Katsina, in 1961.

Adeyinka, in the report titled: ?Major Trends in Curriculum Development in Nigeria?, said no school in Nigeria offered subjects in local languages at the time.

His research report had further chipped away the credibility of the Statement of Result released by the college to support Buhari?s claim that he sat for the secondary school certificate examination in 1961.

According to Adeyinka?s research findings available at www.unilorin.edu, prior to the emergence of a centralised government of the regime of General Yakubu Gowon from 1966 to 1975, all regions in Nigeria had different academic curriculums.

He added that it was only the Western Region that offered a local language as a subject in both its curriculum and school certificate examinations.
