PDP challenges Buhari to tender his WAEC certificate if he has any

Uche Secondus, PDP National Chairman

Again, President Muhammadu Buhari has been challenged to tender his West African Examination Council, WAEC, certificate, before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal instead of allowing his campaign spokesperson, Festus Keyamo to insult the sensibility of Nigerians by saying the certificate was needed by anyone to become the President of the country.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which made the challenge 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 Presidency, through Festus Keyamo, has finally admitted that President Buhari does not have a WAEC certificate as he claimed in his INEC form."  
The party's spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan in a statement Monday said: "The PDP says it is completely inexcusable for President Buhari to swear to an affidavit to claim an educational qualification he does not possess. 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 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."
