After sifting and digging into piles of ancient scrolls and documents, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) finally came up with what they call “attestation certificate” which is said to confirm that President Buhari had a school certificate.
This discovery was disclosed by Mr. Femi Adesina, who’s the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity on Friday, after WAEC‘s registrar, Iyi Uwadiae, had issued president Buhari the certificate.
The move quickly attracted criticism from the opposition party, people’s democratic party, PDP which called it a “tragicomedy.”
“It is a tragicomedy. We never expected Mr. President to dramatically come this low because you cannot have a certificate and be calling it an attestation.” as declared by Kola Ologbodiyan, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary .
“What are they attesting to? We stand by our position that Mr. President has no school certificate.”
“it is simply a political certificate. We have said that the Buhari presidency and his handlers are always fretting at the mention of a certificate.”
“if Mr. President has a certificate, why did he not use it in 2015 election? Why is the certificate suddenly emerging few months to the election? And have you checked the photograph that was attached to the certificate? In 1961, was it the requirement of WAEC to have a passport attached to school certificate?
“So, they want to mislead Nigerians to say that Mr. President has a school certificate”
“Even in our own generation, was a condition in WAEC that you must submit your passport to be attached to your certificate? They should come off it. It’s too low.
“You remember they procured Martin Luther Award presented to our president which later was discovered to be fake? This is a similar award, a procured. We are waiting for the story of its declaration as another procured document.”
He also expressed his disappointed on how WAEC managed to dig up this bogus document.
