Tender your WAEC certificate at election tribunal – PDP tells Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party () on Monday, April 15, charged President Muhammadu to tender his West African Examination Certificate (), which he claimed he has, to the presidential election petition tribunal.

The opposition party, in a statement made available called on Nigerians to note that the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s claim that President does not need such a certificate for the office confirms that he actually does not have it.

The statement signed by the ’s national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that it is wrong for the president to have sworn to an affidavit to claim an educational qualification he does not possess.

The therefore maintains that the onus is on President to tender the certificate he claims to possess before the tribunal.
