Candidates Don’t Need A WAEC Certificate To Become President

Candidates Don’t Need A WAEC Certificate To Become President, In a interview with Lawyer and spokesperson of the 2019 Buhari campaign organization, Festus Keyamo, on Channels TV last night discussing the issue of President Buhari’s WAEC certificate was discussed.

The main opposition party, PDP and other political parties, have contested President Buhari’s eligibility to be the President on the grounds that he has not tendered his WAEC results to INEC.

In his interview, Keyamo says a WAEC certificate is not a prerequisite to becoming the President of Nigeria. According to him, if you have occupied 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.

See some of the responses below:

@renoomokri: @OfficialAPCNg took Senator Adeleke to Court, alleging that he had no certificate, now a shameless Festus (Stephanie Otobo) @FKeyamo is arguing that @MBuhari DOES NOT need a WAEC certificate to be President. It’s like saying you need a certificate to be gateman but not to be MD!

‏@chosensomto: When Buhari hires 13 SANS to defend his WAEC certificate, I knew he didn’t sit for the exam.

@MuhammadBello49: He quoted the Constitution, you should attack the Constitution rather than ad hominem. We didn’t see this same enthusiasm from you with respect to Adeleke forged waec certificate.

@delaw: Festus Keyamo that worked under the great Gani Fawehinmi and should have learnt a thing or two about honesty and the bond in the words of his mouth is saying you don’t need waec to become President?

@mrboboskie: Now that WAEC isn’t even needed to contest for any post in my country, it’s safe to say the ones in schools are not the leaders of tomorrow.

@ebubec1: What about your good friend Obono Obla, WAEC denied authenticity of his certificate, yet you are still hobnobbing with him. Kemp Adeosun, you allowed her escape to UK.

@AOlaosebikan: If you carry out analysis of some cooperations, some senior officer will not qualify in modern reality but are allowed such position because of experience and capacity developed over the years. You do not need WAEC to be elected officer. Pry school with 10yrs public service is ok.

@Menschinfotech: Now that we have confirmed Buhari doesn’t her waec certificate … Can they now charge him for forgery and misleading the public with fake results.

@MrPa_Johnson: If it is “common WAEC CERTIFICATE” why is senator Adeleke in court?.

@NdMajestic: Yet APC claimed Sen Adeleke did not sit for waec himself and is not qualified to run for gubernatorial elections.
