“As ‘Mr. Integrity’, Tender The WAEC Certificate You Claim To Possess” – PDP Challenges Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to tender his West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate, which he claimed he has, to the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

The spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC), campaign Council, Festus Keyamo had on Monday said that one does not need a WAEC certificate to become a President or Governor in Nigeria.

Keyamo said this while responding to critics who had argued that Buhari didn’t deserve to run for the presidency on account of the controversies surrounding his WAEC certificate.

However, the PDP in a statement issued on Monday by its spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan, insisted that President Buhari should tender his WAEC certificate to the presidential election petition’s tribunal instead of allowing his campaign spokesperson, Keyamo to “insult the sensibility of Nigerians with a lame attempt at diversionary tactics.”

“The PDP, therefore, maintains that the onus is on President Buhari, as ‘Mr. Integrity’ to tender the certificate he claims to possess before the tribunal instead of this lame diversion from Presidential aides

The party also called on Nigerians to note that in claiming that an aspirant does not need WAEC certificate, but the ability to speak English, to contest for the office of the President, “the Buhari Presidency, through Festus Keyamo, has finally admitted that President Buhari does not have a WAEC certificate as he claimed in his INEC form.”

“An attempt to deceive the public using a defective reading and skewed interpretation of a section of the constitution cannot exonerate President Buhari.

“Moreover, Section 295 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) is very clear on issues of interpretations and reference to questions of law.

The PDP said it is completely inexcusable for President Buhari to swear to an affidavit to claim an educational qualification he does not possess.
