. . .Tackles PMB Over Certificate



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari is morally burdened over the certificate saga. The party added that the fret and jittery in the Presidency whenever the issue is mentioned shows that it ostensibly has something to hide.

The PDP, in response to a statement credited to the Presidency alleging that those raising the certificate issue are sowing seeds of discord, maintained that President Buhari’s handlers should do the needful by placing the certificate in public domain instead of confronting and threatening Nigerians for demanding that the President shows his certificate.

A statement by the national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said, “The Buhari Presidency should know that their threats and confrontation cannot take away the fact that their principal’s certificate issue requires a personal responsibility and Mr. President cannot wish away this responsibility as he had always done on official matters.

“If Mr. President has nothing to hide, he should end the confrontations by his Presidency and show integrity by writing the military authorities to make public the said certificate.

“In failing to do so, Mr. President is opening himself to public opprobrium particularly as millions of Nigerian youths see such as grossly undesirable of a leader, expected to set examples. 

“Moreover, President Buhari should know that Nigerians are aware that he is not the only retired military officer to aspire for elective office in the country and none of them brought the claims of their certificates being held by the military.”

The PDP however added that the President “must show Nigerians his claimed school certificate upon which his nomination as a candidate is based. If he does not have this credential, he should make such declaration and stop the nebulous claim that his credentials are with the military.”
