PDP Chides Buhari Over His Certificate



The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has chided President Muhammadu Buhari over his failure to present his secondary school certificate and charged him to do so if he has in order to put an end to the controversy.

The PDP in a statement issued by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan on Friday said while its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, submitted his documents including certificates, Buhari has resorted to flooding the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC with affidavits.

Charging Buhari to come clean, the PDP said:

“A situation where President Buhari has been dodging the certificate issue raises huge questions of integrity, which demands that he makes available his credentials, or apologize to Nigerians, if he has none, so that the nation can move ahead.

“President Buhari knows by now that Nigerians are no longer interested in his claims in an affidavit wherein he stated, ‘I am the above-named person and the deponent of this affidavit herein. All my academic qualification documents as filled in my Presidential form, APC/001/2015 are currently with the Secretary of the Military Board as of the time of this affidavit.’

“PDP maintains that integrity strictly demands that President Buhari, particularly as the commander-in-chief, writes to the military authorities directing them to forward his claimed credentials to INEC, as requisite evidence of compliance with a key requirement for election into the Office of the President, under section 131 (d) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

“That President Buhari and the previous INEC succeeded in circumventing the law in 2015 does not make such acceptable in our current electoral process.

“President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC,  must realize that even their followers, that were beguiled in 2015, are currently not prepared to accept ‘NEPA bill’ as WAEC certificate in the 2019 elections.

“This is particularly as the certificate scandal contributes to the erosion of Mr. President’s rectitude to check the humongous corruption, ineptitude and recklessness among his officials which has brought the nation to its knees under his administration.”
