Nothing could prepare me for the shock that greeted me when I
opened the dailies on Friday, October 26, 2018. Right there on the
front-page headlines of my beloved THISDAY was the news that
President Buhari, again, could not present his West African School
Certificate Examination certificate because the original is with the
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me! That
lame excuse could hardly suffice in 2015 when President Jonathan
was the Commander-in-Chief of the Army, but it is certainly an
untenable excuse today!
How on earth could Buhari again tell the Independent National
Electoral Commission that his certificate is with the army. Who
controls the army as Commander-in-Chief? Is it not Buhari? We
have seen the evidence of certificate less leadership. We will not
accept that excuse in 2018 or 2019.
The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, His Excellency,
Atiku Abubakar, has produced his certificate to INEC, while the All
Progressive Congress’s candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari
has produced his excuse to INEC. By their actions, you will know
who is prepared to govern for the next four years and who is
prepared to make excuses for the next 4 years. Nigerians will not
be fooled again.
What kind of country has Buhari turned Nigeria into? Nigerian
youths, who Buhari called lazy, need to present certificates before
they can serve in the National Youth Service Corp, yet
Muhammadu Buhari does not need to present a certificate before
he can be President and we are wondering why we are the world
headquarters for extreme poverty?.
Other than the 11 million jobs he lost, the only jobs that Buhari
could create in almost four years were the jobs he gave the
thirteen SANs that he engaged to go to court to prevent him from
presenting his certificate to Nigerians. Now he is telling INEC a
cock and bull story.
Which company or business will give you a job if you tell them that
your certificate is with your child? Who controls your child if not
you? The Nigerian Army is Muhammadu Buhari’s child. If the
certificate really existed, Buhari would have collected it rather than come up with this tales by moonlight about it being with the army.
How can the Commander-in-Chief of the army claim that his
certificate is with the army?
Only one name fits all three categories, yet that fellow wants to
preside over the people who have the highest educational
qualifications of any African nation? How are the mighty fallen.
And the sad thing is that in this same paper, there is a headline
with the caption ‘Buhari: I’m very disappointed in the Nigerian
media’. How can the man who led Nigeria to her first recession in
25 years, the man who led Nigeria into being the world
headquarters for extreme poverty, the man who destroyed the
Naira’s value, say he is “disappointed in the Nigerian media”. Who
should be disappointed in who?.
Nigerians should not be deceived. Those around Buhari know that
he has nothing to offer Even Festus (Stephanie Otobo) Keyamo
knows for a fact that Buhari and the APC are not the best for
Nigerians. None of those around Buhari believe in him. This
includes Buhari’s own wife and his protege Nasir Elrufai.
In a January 4, 2018 interview with Sahara TV, Festus
Am I here to think that the APC is the best thing to happen to
Nigeria? I will be a fool to say so. Am I here to say that there are
no thieves within the APC? I will be a fool to say so. Will I be here
to defend APC as the purest political party and the cure to all we
have been looking for? No.”
Nasir El-Rufai knows his lord and master very well. On October 4,
2010, El-Rufai warned Nigerians not to vote for Muhammadu
Buhari, saying as follows:
The question remains: Where is Buhari’s WAEC CERTIFICATE?
Was Buhari legally qualified to contest the 2015 Presidential
election? Was that not monumental corruption?.
