The Director of Strategic Communications of Buhari Campaign Organisation, Festus Keyamo on Sunday said the opposition was trying to nail President Muhammadu Buhari.
He stated that plans were in motion outside the country to scrutinize the president’s West African Examinations Council (WAEC) certificate.
Buhari on Friday, in Abuja, received the attestation and confirmation of his 1961 West African School Certificate (WASC) Examination.
The documents were presented to him at State House during a courtesy visit by a delegation of WAEC led by its Registrar, Dr Iyi Uwadiae, accompanied by Olutise Adenipekun, Head, National Office, Abiodun Aduloju, Head Public Affairs, and Olufemi Oke, Zonal Coordinator, Abuja.
On Twitter, Keyamo lambasted those insisting that the certificate was forged, adding that Buhari’s opponents were holding meetings on next action.
“The dumbest comments I’ve read about d now dead issue of PMB’s WAEC result is to say WAEC forged its own document”, he wrote.
“Where there’s ONLY ONE body authorized by law to issue a document, it can only make mistakes or clerical errors on it (I don’t concede that here) but cannot forge it.
“On a lighter note, we understand the opposition is now hunting for the examiners who marked PMB’s scripts in 1961 to ascertain whether the grades in PMB’s WAEC result tallies with the marks they actually gave him.
“They’re flying in some US investigators to Dubai for consultation,” he stated.
