A political activist and former Deputy National
Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi
Frank, has dismissed a fake news being circulated by the APC to portray
General Muhammadu Buhari as having a West African School Certificate
Frank who was
reacting to a media report aimed at deceiving Nigerians and also swaying
the Presidential Election Petition Court to rule in favour of General
Buhari, urged the APC to stop spreading falsehood as “the world knows
that Buhari has no Secondary school certificate anywhere”.
to him, the report titled: “Buhari cambridge certificate verification;
PDP agent disappointed” is a fake news from the pit of hell.
report quoting an unnamed source had claimed among other things that
“As the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal kicked off few months
ago, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) sent a team of lawyers and other
party agents to the University of Cambridge to confirm the authenticity
of the West African School Certificate (WASC) of President Muhammadu
source said that the opposition party not only sent a delegation but
also made a request seeking potential evidence, citing doubts about the
authenticity of the President’s WASC results.
source said that the PDP representatives who visited Cambridge were
stunned to discover that the President did write the examination, passed
and were even dumbfounded when they cited the well kept records of the
source said even the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and
associates requested Cambridge provide them with a confirmation of his
certificate,” the report said.
wondered why the APC could descend so low in trying to fraudulently
rewrite history by claiming that Cambridge University allegedly
confirmed that a self-confessed certificate-less General Buhari now has a
“It is a shame that Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and his lackeys have become
so shameless to the point where they churn out blatant lies to confuse
Nigerians. The question is: does Gen. Buhari have a WAEC certificate?
yes, where is it? Lai Mohammed had admitted that Buhari does not have a
WAEC certificate and asked Nigerians to forgive him for not knowing
where his (Buhari) certificate was 53 years after leaving Secondary
now see why the APC’s government is clueless. This so called cambridge
source, who is he? What is his name? Nigerians will love to get in touch
with him to ascertain the veracity of the information.
I can assure Nigerians that the source will forever remain anonymous,
reason being that this so called source does not exist.
is pure garbage being churned out by the APC’s and Buhari’s propaganda
machine but glory be to God, Nigerians are not buying and will not buy
the lies this time around. Instead, Nigerians are asking that Buhari be
sacked, #SACKBUHARI,” the Bayelsa-born activist said.
said that of Justice Walter Onnoghen could be fraudulently hounded out
of the Judiciary as Chief Justice of Nigeria because of his alleged lack
of full asset declaration, why should General Buhari who has no record
of having completed his school certificate remain as President in brazen
violation of the nation’s Constitution?
said: “Onnoghen was embarrased and forced to resign from office as the
Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) for omitting to declare all his assets,
yet Lai Mohammed is asking Nigerians to forgive Buhari who has no WAEC
Certificate and once lied that his certificate is with the military.
Buhari is now the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, yet he cannot
fish out his certificate from the military authorities.
APC wants Nigerians to depend on an unknown and unnamed source from
Cambridge to believe General Buhari has a certificate. Why go to Sokoto
when you can get what you lack inside your ‘sokoto?’
Constitution is clear. A minimum of school certificate is required to
contest for the office of President. The law is also clear on the
penalty for pejury.
want to use this opportunity to remind the presidential electoral
petition judges that Nigerians are watching and waiting to read what
their judgement will be.
the right judgement by sacking Gen. Buhari because he does not have a
WAEC certificate which amounts to a gross violation of the constitution
and write your names in GOLD on the annals of Nigeria’s history for
being men of courage and integrity who stood by the truth at a critical
Buhari said the certificate was with the military. None of his course
mates in the military could testify under oath that they did submit
their certificates to the military.
even the military itself has come out boldly to say that they are not
in possession of General Buhari’s WAEC certificate. Is this a ‘Yahoo
Yahoo’ certificate that people cannot see?”
