BIG NEWS! See Why Buhari May Be Disqualified After This Powerful Allegation Emerged Against Him In Favour Of Atiku

The controversy of President Muhammadu Buhari’s certificate has continued to attract reactions even after the 2019 presidential election.

Festus Keyamo(SAN), President Buhari’s campaign spokesperson had said on a Channels TV program on Sunday that the president doesn’t need a West African School Certificate Examination(WASCE) for his position, In formation Nigeria reports.

According to the lawyer, there are other qualifications that the constitution requires of the person seeking the highest position in the country.
 

This statement has sparked a lot of reactions from Nigerians especially Femi Fani Kayode, a former minister for aviation.

According to Fani Kayode, Buhari goofed by presenting a form which indicates that his qualification includes WAEC. He wrote: Buhari may not need a WAEC certificate to contest but once he swore to an affidavit or presented a form indicating that his qualifications include WAEC it becomes a different matter. Or has he withdrawn his WAEC claim? This is a matter of perjury and not whether he is qualified.

Recall that APC Campaign Council’s Spokesman, Festus Keyamo had earlier said that one does not need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.

Keyamo said this while appearing on Channels TV on Sunday night when asked about the eligibility of President Muhammadu Buhari to contest the presidential election.

According to him, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, you do not need a WAEC certificate to become president of Nigeria. Keyamo said “There are other levels of qualifications to run for the office of President. In fact, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, by the provisions of the constitution, you do not even need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.

This is coming days after the APC filed a motion at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja by its lead counsel, Lateef Fagbemi faulting the candidacy of Atiku in the election, claiming that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is a Cameroonian and not a Nigerian citizen.

APC, hence stated that the former Vice President’s petition against President Muhammadu Buhari, its own candidate, should be dismissed for lacking in merit.

The matter is still in court. Both parties are waiting for the judgment of the court.
