President Muhammadu Buhari last Friday received the attestation certificate and confirmation of school certificate result from the West African Examination Council, WAEC.
President Buhari had been under attack after he failed to submit his credentials to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC as the various presidential candidates’ credentials were made to .
Buhari only submitted an affidavit where he claimed that his credential was with the Secretary of the Military Board.
However, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Friday announced that President Muhammadu Buhari had received the attestation certificate and confirmation of school certificate result from the West African Examination Council, WAEC.
But this has stirred divergent opinions from Nigerians who wondered why it took Buhari so long to get WAEC certificate.
Here are some comments gathered by gathered from Twitter:
@Akinadesoji “If it took the President 3 years (2015 – 2018) to get his Confirmation of Result from WAEC, what’s the hope for mere mortals??
@mayor_ic “Attestation certificate in 2018, were is this attestation in 2015? please make it public for rational verification. illegality individuals in the seat of power, fighting institutions to prove fake innocence.
@Tomm_wears ” Buhari just removed his cap in this picture and they made the picture white and black for us to feel that the result was old.”
@Igie_nosakhare “Why did it take WAEC about 15yrs to do that? Why now that he’s the President? Why?
@Lamoko “Everything is possible in Nigeria, afterwards who pays WAEC?He who pays the piper detects the tune.”
@Ge_asuquo “If Apc govt continues beyond 2019, we might not have a country called Nigeria. 2014, Buhari claimed his cert was with the military and they debunked it. Buhari as CoC couldn’t get the army to produce his cert if truly his claims then were correct but guess what? He waited till 2018 to remind us his cert is still with the Army. Nigerians simply ask he orders the army to release it but No; they’re here to sell us attestation from WAEC and we’re saying INTEGRITY.”
@Igie_nosakare “Femi that’s a big fraud. Buhari is using his power to acquire WAEC result illegally. Why didn’t he get it in 2015?
@Owonifariesq “The certificate still looks doctored! whoever did that had just one job MAKE IT LOOK REAL! But y’all combination of HEADS couldn’t even make that happen!
@UgoA9 “What Nigerians want is compliance with INEC requirements. No one is interested in making a mockery of anyone. Asking WAEC for the replacement of a missing certificate is what would have been done all this time, not politicizing the matter. This is a major breakthrough, after donkey years of searching for missing WAEC certificate.”
