#Nigeria2015: Jonathan wants Buhari disqualified

President Goodluck Jonathan at a Presidential rally

President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign team has asked for the disqualification of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, from next month’s election.

In an address by its spokesperson, Femi Fani-Kayode, the campaign team also accused the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, of deliberately allowing Mr. Buhari to contest the February 14 election even after he has ‘failed’ to meet the basic educational qualification required to run.

Mr. Fani-Kayode, who addressed a press conference on Saturday in Abuja, said the inability of Mr. Buhari to present the minimum requirement of a school leaving certificate questions his morals and other credentials for pursuing the position of the president of Nigeria.

Mr. Buhari’s academic qualification generated controversy recently after it emerged he submitted a sworn affidavit at a Federal High Court, FCT, High Court Abuja to the effect that all his academic qualifications were with the Secretary of the Military Board.

His party, the APC, through its spokesperson, Lai Mohammed, said Mr. Buhari lost original copies of his credentials when his house was raided while he was in detention; and that he had been using court affidavits since then.

 “General Muhammadu Buhari was in detention for over three years; while in detention, captors raided his residence and vandalised his property including certificates and diplomas; and that consequently, after his release, whenever the General is asked about his academic qualifications, he would refer such bodies to the Military Command, who has his service records including his academic certificates,” Mr. Mohammed said in a chat with Leadership Newspaper last weekend.

He also said Mr. Buhari had taken the same procedure for the 2003, 2007 and 2011 elections in which he was a candidate.

Mr. Jonathan’s campaign team, however, said it is not satisfied.

“Academic qualification is a threshold issue that cannot be waived for any citizen no matter how highly-placed and irrespective of whichever region such individual comes from except as provided by the constitution,” Mr. Fani-Kayode said.

The former minister cited Section 131 of the Nigerian constitution which states that: “A person shall be qualified for election to the office of President if: (a) He is a citizen of Nigeria by birth (b) He has attained the age of forty years(c) He is a member of a political party and is sponsored by that political party; and (d) He has been educated up to at least School certificate level or its equivalent.”

Mr. Fani-Kayode said section 131 (d) is a specific directional order for all candidates to show proof of education up to a minimum standard not below school certificate or its equivalent.

“But from what INEC has published, Buhari has not submitted any personal particular of minimum school leaving certificate for the 2015 election and, shockingly, from INEC documents displayed in all constituencies, he also did not submit anything in 2011 and never referred the electoral umpire then to the Secretary of the Military Board as well as previous elections he contested as evidenced in all available INEC records until this current discovery.

“If the constitution did not require proof, it would not specify a minimum,” he said.

Electoral Act

The former Minister of Aviation added that the current Electoral Act directs that proof of educational qualification must be sworn to by each candidate at a Court under Section 31 (ii) to (v). 

He noted that for elections to the office of the president and for the purpose of display of particulars of candidates for all presidential elections, the entire country is taken as one constituency.

 “Nigerians that have perused the affidavit of nomination as submitted by General Buhari and as published in all INEC offices, as well as the copies of his similar INEC documentations for 2011 election, could see clearly that General Buhari who claims to be a man of integrity has not been true to Nigerians. 

“It can be seen, as indicated in section 31(6), that there are reasonable grounds to believe that a false deponent was declared in the affidavit where it indicates that all documents relating to the personal particulars of General Buhari are with the Secretary of the Military Board,” he said.

He said in the form he filled for the 2015 election, Mr. Buhari referred INEC to the Military Board for copies of his educational qualification, even after Section C of the form states that candidates should “attach evidence of all educational qualifications.”

He also said it was curious that Mr. Buhari did not refer INEC to the military board in 2011.

Mr. Fani-Kayode said the military board like any other body does not keep or retain original copies of personal particulars of individuals such as birth certificates, passports, and academic credentials of any personnel, especially retired personnel after over 3 decades.

“It must be stated that INEC erred in law by publishing the name of a candidate without receiving the personal particulars of the candidate within 7 days of receiving his nomination forms as indicated in section 31(3),” he said.

“This is indeed a tragedy illustrating what Nigeria has become, that an individual is so powerful that the law has to be ignored to accommodate him. 

“Certainly, INEC printed nomination forms or High Court affidavits are, in no way or by any stretch of definitions, the same as personal particulars such as school leaving certificate.”

The former aviation minister said the Jonathan campaign is convinced that Mr. Buhari “is not qualified to contest the 2015 presidential election.”

    So druggie, go to court ….. how difficult is that ?
    Only this lunatic can do the dirty job Metuh/Abati/Okupe have refused to do so far !

    • endingNaija

      Yes tundemash, Metuh/Abati/Okupe have official Goodluck Jonathan Aso Rock budget . But Femi is out of job. He needs to draw some pay from the illicit 21 billion naira Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Fund. But leave him alone. I am ready for him-Femi Fanikayode right here and the -e-rats they send from Aso Rock.

  • jade

    I think the major thing or issue on ground now has gone beyond certificates. If a PhD holder fails to deliver even with his degrees n a school sets holder can deliver in more unique way so who cares about degree? Na certificate we wan chop? Fk, I think u are sick upstairs! Nigerians are simply tired n they need change so that’s the wish of the people n I think it should be respected without further delay!

    • jude L/A USA

      Its too late now in the day to substitute GMB with any body now. And for his certiPicate issues, he should make copies of the receipt of the Presidential nomination form he bought from INEC and submit to them. But come next month, its FEBuhari 14th. all the way.

      • endingNaija

        King jude L/A USA, this is election is an anti-corruption election. It is an election to secure Nigerian borders. We need the $20billion which Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke, (Goodluck Jonathan petroleum minister) stole from the NNPC on behalf of Mr. Goodluck Jonathan . We understand that part of this money has been recycled to Goodluck Jonathan 21 billion Naira Campaign Fund. But Mrs. Alison Madueke should bring the balance openly to the Nigerian treasury before the exit of her man-Mr. Jonathan

  • King Romeo

    APC pls change Buhari. The man is not qualified and his previous conduct in public office clearly supports that assertion. Give us Kwakwanso and Oshiomhole.

    • endingNaija

      Because Buhari is already winning against your candidate-outgoing Presdient-Mr. Goodluck Jonathan?

    • tundemash

      APC will not change their candidate because a druggie is scared of going to jail. Let PDP go to court, as suggested by INEC, to challenge Buhari’s eigiblity. That is the reasonable thing to do id PDP and their supporters think they are right.
      Kwankaso/Oshiomole, you may want and some people may not want that; everybody can’t be satisfied; the fact is that majority of the people are satisfied with Buhari/Kwankaso hence the looters are jittery. And the more they leave the main issues; corruption and insecurity, and dwell on mundane issues, the more they make Buhari look larger than life!

      • Oleku

        The APC should just replace Imam Buhari with another Mohammedan–perhaps Atiku and save us from this national embarrassment of having an illiterate contesting for the number one spot of the country–what a shame

        • endingNaija

          Ole, I am here for you and King Reno Romeo Omokri. I have already given him my first shot. This one is for you or the name you people(Jonathan Campaign Team) in Aso Rock use. You are wasting your time. This election is an anti-corruption and security issue election. The frst thing you should do is to write to the woman of Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, your candidate-Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke that Nigerians will want her -Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke, to release the $20b, she Mrs. Madueke is keeping on behalf of her man , Mr. Goodluck Jonathan , the surely outgoing President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

          • tundemash

            You have time for the creek monkey ? You are only feeding his fantasy, he gets paid by the number of copy and paste he does on this blog; best way to deny him those allowances is to ignore the creek monkey ! He will never engage you with any reasonable line.
            @wahala has requested him and other e-rats to show the marriage certificates of their mother and father to proof they weren’t cross-bred with monkeys … till now ….. duh !!!
            I dey go watch football jo !

          • endingNaija

            Thanks tundemash. I know their game. I know what you mean. I need to preserve my shots and punch for any of the other monkeys that will show up. But since I know OLE very well, I must first hit the monkey before I ignore him. Let him bring it up and I will “kick” his the drugged head with some punches before I face other names they bring up from AsoRock Jonathan Campaign team. I am ready for them here. Let them call it any name. These Goodluck Jonathan Online Campaign Aso Rock e-rats are really drugged. I will use the language they deserve on them depending on the context. Anyway thanks a lot tundemash, God bless you and your family plenty.

          • Oleku

            Mumu replying himself–Buhari should provide his certs-period–change must be seen ati felt not heard

          • endingNaija

            Ole, ode.

          • Oleku

            I gree I be ode I be ole–but the issue of Buhari’s cert is not going to be swept under the rug–it’s either he presents them or risk being disqualified from the race–even if compromised Jega allow him to contest and he rigs himself as a winner his mandate will be rendered null ati void for failing to meet stipulated electoral guidelines-cheers

        • Wähala

          Ole! Sai Buhari or Nigeria burns…
          Dumbo’s picture on a bus was set ablaze, Sambo was booed in his Emir’s Palace… get the drift?
          This certificate issue is a last straw and like Victor Ikpeba said, “Even if Buhari show me NEPA bill as certifcat, I will still vote for him”. Forget it, start saving for stormy days ahead, Amnesty Program ends in a few weeks… and like the wind, you will be gone with it. Meanwhile, ask your mommy which chimp she was cross-bred with to produce you or, #YaMomaShowHerMarriageCertificate…
          to prove you’re human!

    • endingNaija

      King Reno Omokri, why? Because your candidate -Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, the outgoing president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is already being defeated? I will advise you to begin to wake up your fall back position which is the threat from Dokubo-Asari and Tompolo (who already have SIX WARSHIPS) that they will rekindle the terrorism from the South South Creeks if Mr. Goodluck Jonathan loses. Please begin the Dokubo-Asari and Tomoplo option now because we are not going back on inflicting maximum defeat on Mr. Goodluck Jonathan during the Feb 14 elections.

    • Aminulahi Aminu

      Yes u need someone that u can defeat easily, buhari is the only one that can defeat pdp, so we will not change any candidate.

    • Sani

      The constitution stipulates a School Certificate or its equivalent. We need to ask ourselves what exactly is the equivalence of a School certificate. For some of us who have taught in academic institutions, some institutions take experience very seriously when it comes to admission into certain programmes. I have seen cases where people who applied for Post Graduate studies are considered even though they have a deficiency in their O-Levels thanks to their wealth of experience. Will Buhari’s wealth of experience as former Head of State count for nothing in this regard? I think this is a very simple matter, but blown out of proportion by FFK, who cannot hold on to something. Lastly, it is important to note that Namadi Sambo also submitted an Affidavit to INEC, claiming that his certificates were gutted by fire. Does this mean that he does not have certificates? The fact that the Buhari cannot submit photocopies of his certificates does not in any way mean that he did not attend secondary school. The most important thing is for the PDP to ask the Military Board for the copies. Plain and simple.

    • Omoagunmate

      You wish abi, in your dreams. The d-day is FeBuhari and your oga don talk am, all the corrupt people and their supporters are afraid of jail. They are shitting in your pants already. The change we need is here even before the election, the corrupt are suddenly very jittery on the prospect of a Buhari/Osinbajo in Aso Rock.

  • Bishop

    Please even if it’s his TV receipt let him present. What good has all the certificates done to the masses?

    • warry

      The difference is the way people behave up north and down south,despite the fact that the North has ruled more. Ignorance is very expensive.

      • endingNaija

        You can go ahead with your North/South Dichotomy, it will not work. Why? This Feb 2015 election has two themes-(i) anti-corruption to save the moral soul of our nation and (ii) security to secure the physical borders of Nigeria from Boko Haram and Niger Delta terrorisms so that we can at least have physically a country again upon which we will restore our sovereignty and moral soul. So? King Romeo Reno warry Bishop Oleku Omokri, you are wasting your time. Next post from King Jonathan Nebu’s Online Campaign Team? I am here for you.

        • warry

          In my last comment, I was only using that to illustrate the importance of Education. Certainly, that is not to say every southerner is better than a Northerner. Certainly, there are very good persons everywhere, however.,the more the level of education everywhere, the better for the country as a whole. I make bold to say that most of the things we dispute in this country is mostly do to our different levels of understanding

      • Bishop

        Am a Nigerian and see things same way. Let’s talk about leadership by best hands not region,or is GEJ the best from his part of the country? Its that mentality that we are paying the hard price for today

  • endingNaija

    Mr. Femi Fani Kayode, are you normal? Femi, what exactly is the problem with your state of mind? Is there a problem?Things seem to be getting worse with your state of mind and stability. Are you okay Femi?

  • Bishop

    Obasanjo said it. Give him food and he will sing for you. He is a smart boy. FFK we know all you said about PDP b4 now.

  • larry

    I will vote for buhari if he shows nigerians his primary six certificate 🙂

    • endingNaija

      This election is an anti-corruption and security issue based election. First shot on this: ask the woman of Mr. Jonathan, Mrs Diezani Alison Madueke to immediately return the $20billion she stole on behalf of her man( -the outgoing president of Nigeria, Mr. Jonathan-)to the Nigerian treasury.

      • warry

        You see that is why I say mist of our discussions in this country is based our abilities to critically analyze issues and come to a logical conclusion. Now the global Financial. System now is such that nobody can move large sums of money without being detected. I hope you will not say that the $20 billion was a cash transaction. Now look at the current FG budget for this year #4trilloon which is approximately!$20 billion. Now how can you believe that in a single year somebody took away the entire FG budget and salary bill of $15billion for that year and projects of about $5billion was done? Did Nigeria sell oil beyond it’s quota that year?
        The Senate did it’s investigation, even calling for outside help and came up with a verdict that no such money missing. Why is some people so wicked?

    • tundemash

      Your non voting for Buhari would matter a lot if you yourself can show Nigerians you voted for him in 2003, 2007 and 2011 and the you are actually not voting this year because of the certificate issue.

      Meanwhile, you have every right as a Nigerian to go to court and demand a disqualification of Buhari says INEC and Lawyer Agbakoba !

      • taiwo

        No need to go to court we wont even vote for him in the ist place.He should keep his promise of never contesting again and go to daura for some much needed rest and meditation for forgiveness for all the blood he has shed or caused to be shed in nigeria

        • Sani

          I think you better speak for yourself. The ‘we’ thing is quite irritating. Lastly, you need to make good you claim by retracting your statements that Buhari caused Bloodshed in the country. The world is now a small place. It is now easy to go to youtube and watch the numerous interviews by FFK vilifying the person of the president and the PDP. If that is possible at this time and age, I think Buhari comments for bloodshed, if he has made them at all, can also be found on the internet. Please refer us to any link that buttress your point that Buhari shed or caused bloodshed of Nigerians.

          • taiwo

            Sani your irritation is merely starting get ready for the one after february14 after we have spoken with our votes but be advised that the security apparatus in the country has perfected plan to deal decisively with any irritated person waiting to shed innocent bliood after the polls

          • endingNaija

            which votes? OILED Stomach Infrastructured votes? The votes you are using the 20billion dollars which mom-Diezani Madueke stole to buy?

          • Sani

            At least you should, as a matter of principle, address the issues I have raised in response to your empty assertions. You must make good your claim by referring us to any document, video or audio clip that demonstrates that Buhari is responsible for the bloodshed in the country. Just yesterday, Premium Times put up a video refuting GEJ’s preposterous claim that MEND was procured to assassinate him. In fact, GEJ rushed to exonerate MEND at that time thinking Orkar will go along with him in incriminating some prominent Northerners for the bombing. Orkar bluntly refused and he is now paying for his dear life in a South African jail. All well meaning Nigerians must stop this wicked president from returning. Lastly, I am still waiting for your response to my issues.

EVEN convicts have the right to question buhari on how he got enlisted into the army-without the requisite qualification——————-how–? And we must get answers to these questions——-if buhari has any conscience left in him–he will confess his sins to the nation—-u cannot fight corruption with corrupt ideas—never—the very man who sent southerners to 300 yrs imprisonment—–cannot lie his way through the Holy Spirit again–happily he has a pastor and a lawyer by his side-as his VP–so-let them campaign with the fear of God in them and not boko haram—Buhari must show his certs–period

  • orkar

    (The inability of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, to present even the minimum requirement of just a leaving school certificate questions his moral and other credentials for pursuing the position of the president of Nigeria. The current shocking disclosures bring to the fore how and what qualifications were used to recruit him into the military, without a minimum school leaving certificate, where he rose to the rank of a General and even became the Head of state through a military coup that truncated a democratically-elected government in 1983.)

    • endingNaija

      Shut up King Reno Romeo OmOKAR i -Do Nigerians a favor. Go back to mom-Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke and ask her to return the $20b she stole on behalf of her man(Goodluck Jonathan) to the treasury before all of you leave office because this election is an anti-corruption election and a security based election.

  • Thepeople

    To those of you who have school certificate or more, this is a simple issue. Let’s be a bit intelligent and not be fooled by people who want to decieve Nigerians again. If FFK or indeed anyone is sure of his facts, I would suggest they drag Buhari to court. That how people with school certificate or more should think and behave. It is called the rule of law. FFK is busy making unintelligent noises while PDP is drowning. FFK , please sell Jonathan to Nigerians. Tell us his achievements, his leadership qualities, how he made us feel more safer and how we are better off, not the PDP campaign team in the past 6 years. CHANGE MUST COME TO NIGERIA.

        He has had wonderful speeches at the UN, AU Addis Ababa, CNN, etc. His interviews with CNN’s Isay Cisse and Christian Amanpour are wonderful. All these are achievements of GEJ.

You una make me laugh when you pollute the air with GEJ’s achievements. Even GEJ knows that he has achieved nothing.

    All these things are happening bc the north is keeping quiet but at the right time we will talk with our votes.Buhari is not the candidate of the north but that of Tinubu and Ameachi.APC lost their chance to present a candidate for us when they allowed tinubu to manipulate people like kwankwasor and atiku out of contention.We have learnt our lesson from the yar adua saga that Obasanjo put us thru,we will not allow Tinubu to do the same again.Soon four year will finish and it will be the turn of the north to do its own uninterrupted 8yrs.Sai Jonathan since APC no get sense

    Shame to GEJ and his entire campaign team if this is how they want to win. This FFK guy is the biggest nuisance of all time. I hope GEJ realizes that he is also indicting the Nigeria Army who promoted buhari to the exalted rank of a major general not forgetting the insult this insinuation is to the sensibility of to the millions of the supporters of the great general.
    Anyway,I have always said GEJ’s plan is to set Nigeria on fire now that he knows his game is up. But let him and his cohots remember that nobody nor any section of Nigeria has a monopoly of violence if that’s how they plan to go about it.

    • taiwo

      we all know that the fulani stock for years then were untouchables both in the fed govt and in the army.Instead of shamelessly bringing the army into our discuss,pa buhari should be man enough to admit he is uneducated and allow us to choose whether we prefer an illiterate archaic ruler to a phd holder especially in these turbulent times of global economic meltdown

I think that will make you a little more educated than your master Jonaharam.

    based on my understanding i think this is an indication to us once more that Jonathan cannot fight corruption. cos this allegation against Buhari is a corruption allegation against Buhari and the Nigerian Military council. so what have the EFCC and ICPC done so far about this case?. the Military have to be called upon to defend itself on why it enrolled someone without the minimum education requirement into the Nigerian Army CADET. and if this happens to be false allegation against the military then i urge the Nigerian Military council to take a decisive action on the Jonathanians for discrediting the integrity of NIGERIAN ARMY

At the end of the contest which was attended by some mothers of the Chibok abducted girls, the teenage pakistani girl told Mr. Jonothing what he is expected to do as a responsible father and Commander in-chief of the nation, She said that he must meet with the parents of the abducted girls and make sure that their children are brought back.

    “Even if Buhari presents NEPA bill as certificate, I will still vote for him” – Victor Ikpeba (Ex-Eagles Great)

    When deceitful Dumbo told the opposition to base their campaign on issues I knew he was high on ogogoro. But soon as they flagged-off his campaign in Lagos, he mounted the podium to make this a personal issue. He has called OBJ “motor park tout” for airing his (OBJ’s) views, called Buhari an illiterate who cannot remember his phone number… and now his dogs are mouthing-off obscenities at the opposition for lack of achievements to campaign on after six (6) wasted years on the saddle. Sad. Truly pathetic. Well, this report did not expatiate on Buhari’s qualies. According to the APC, Gen. Buhari attended Daura Primary School. Went on to Katsina Provincial School (now Govt. College, Katsina) before proceeding to Nigerian Military Training College, Zaria. Later, he also attended prestigious military academies in the UK, USA, India, South Africa etc, where he never failed any courses and was duly promoted based on passing the advanced courses such institutions offer. So, who goes through all these schools/institutions without being granted certificates, biko? If anyone is least qualified to be sworn-in as President a third time in a row, it’s Dumbo. If he rigs re-election he would’ve spent 10yrs consecutively in the same office against the provisions of same Constitution Fani-Kayode is mouthing off about. FFK is a lawyer, he is better off explaining what the Constitution says about term limits than this watery campaign propaganda he is marketing. Either way, as long as Buhari was not disqualified in the past when the playing field was not level, especially contesting against this same Dumbo, it will set off a firestorm to disqualify him now his chances are rosier. Sha, the final place to take their complaint to is the courts, where even a Supreme Court decision on Dumbo’s eligibility is pending final judgment in a case brought by a senior PDP stalwart, Mr. Eze. Let them settle that case before worrying about a new one… Nonsense!

    S. 131(d) says: ” A person shall be qualified for election to the office of the President if; (d) “he has been educated up to at least School Certificate level or it equivalent” This clearly depicts 2 clear points 1. The expectation is education to school cert level! Meaning that even where s person didn’t not sit for his WASC but left d 5th form or attains equivalent he still qualifies, he need not produce WASC certificate or any for the matter in d literary interpretation of of the paragraph, the operative words are “EDUCATED UP TO” the drafters didn’t mention presentation of WASC certificate or sitting for d exam proper 2. That in d event that d person cannot fulfil the 1st part of School cert education, any equivalent of any kid will do! This part likewise is silent on need of any certification so pls what are u ppl talking about? My submission therefore is that once the statutory authority is certified that the person seeking this office has attained o level standard or equivalent, whichever comes 1st! Certificate is not required! I rest!

    • taiwo

      now you are defending your principal abi? so you have now accwpted he is a primary school drop out .

      You people should be ashamed of yourselves. In a party of great intellectuals like APC, it’s an illiterate Buhari that cannot produce ordinary a level certificate you made your presidential bearer. What happened to the great Fasholas, Ashiomoles, and other young educated men in your party? Imagine Buhari as the president of Nigeria in the committee of presidents, or being called upon to make a speech in the united nations assembly…..Nigeria with their sophistication in every sphere of life cannot afford to be a laughing stock before the committee of nations.

  • Okey

    Buhari’s initial advantage has become his albatross of today. But he cannot get the best of worlds engaging the same circumstances. Fact is, in their time (1950-1960s boys of Northern extraction were sought out for, some in Secondary School class 3 or 4, while a few in their last grade in Secondary School, to go and fill Northern Region reserved positions in the Police, Customs, Immigration and the Military. It is now obvious that people like Buhari had similar advantage of taking off from either Class 3 or Class 4 to go to the Nigerian Defence Academy and join Southerners like Emmanuel Ifeajuna and Victor Banjo (University graduates) in military training. He even became luckier that without the compulsory (PSc) his rise to the highest rank was unstoppable. Still many others like Col. Yonna Madaki (now late) remedied their WAEC deficiencies whilst in the Army and went further to read Law, etc. Buhari did not.

    Now will he wants to contrive similar circumstance to enable him gain advantage of the present ? The answer is No. The law requires a minimum of Secondary School Certificate. If Gen. Buhari has it, let him present it and stop placing the nation on the edge and under needless embarrassment and tension.

    That he has contested before without the requisite qualification is no answer to the question. If, for instance, I steal 9 times and was not caught, I cannot plead these 9 times as defence and justification when I am caught at the 10th time. The fact that he he contested 3 times earlier and was not caught cannot justify his being allowed now without the requisite qualification.

    Now, can we ask ourselves this simple question: were Jonathan be found today to have filed in forged credentials with INEC, won’t our nation be witnessing unprecedented street protests in Lagos and violent destruction in Kano ?

    Buhari is contesting on the platform of a moral beacon with honesty and anti-corruption as his chef mantra. Therefore, he should present the minimum requirement or exit the stage if he truly loves this nation, unless he deliberately is setting the stage for the blood of the baboon (the rich) and the monkey (the poor masses) to be spilled on the streets of Nigeria.

    • Sani

      You must not downplay a crucial aspect of that provision. It is a ‘school certificate or its equivalent’. The equivalence of a school certificate can be a Grade II Certificate, cognate years of experience, Military Honours medal, etc. In my opinion, these and many others can make up the ‘equivalent’ aspect of this provision.

      • Okey

        You are making a claim the man never made. He said “My credentials are with the Military.” The military said “Sir, the originals of what they are are with you, but if you need copies of what we have come and take it”. Till now he has not requested for any copy. If he has even S.75, the certificate given to those who could not pass WAEC, let him present it, that suffices.

        • Wähala

    Since jonathan and pdp started their failing campaign it has been personal issues they have been talking about not what jonathan has achieved in the last six years and what he is going to do in the next four years if re-elected. All what Nigerians are saying now is that we want the country to be rescued of our economic woes, lack of safe clean drinking water, lack of infrastructure, lack of power, lack of security and many other issues that have degraded the Nigerian state in the last sixteen years of pdp misrule. fani-kayode is a totally useless man who was indicted because of corruption, who does not have a family structure that anybody is proud of and who can never be a good role model to our youths. Nigerians want issue based campaign which will uplift our standard of living. Shame on jonathan and pdp and I am shocked that he is still on the campaign trail after more than 2,000 Nigerian souls were massacred in Baga and twenty people killed yesterday. He is so insensitive.

  • Gbofia Lunar

    Gen Buhari’s qualifications far surpasses the minimum required for the top job, so can PDP quit acting like this man had never seen the 4 walls of a classroom. In the UK I know a mature student above 26years is not even required to posses GCSEs for higher learning, as long as you have work experience and can confirm such by providing written references from your employers. Recently my 16year old son didn’t quite make the grades for A levels and opted for the BTEC level 3 instead as a route to uni and I remember a lecturer during the interview telling him to work harder in his new course as future work opportunities would be determined by his higher learning qualifications than his GCSEs. So Gen Buhari higher qualifications in my opinion makes him more than qualified to be president of Nigeria as its way above the minimum required. This is my understanding of what “minimum requirements or its equivalent” means… 9ja problem na too many over sabi noise makers with absolutely no sense of any analytical reasoning, it’s so damn scary…

  • bigboy

  • Blessed Bright Uhunoma

    that is the truth

  • CuriousScholar

    Why is his qualification such a big problem? Hasn’t the army confessed to having it in their possession? Also what about Sambo’s certificate? Forget all this qualification matter, Buhari and Jonathan need to come out and debate so that we can know who is more qualified to be the president of our great nation.

  • True Nigerian

    PDP doesn’t get it. These things will make Buhari more popular. People who want to vote for Buhari are not planning to do so based on his education. They are doing so because they have groaned for four years under the government of a PhD holder who does not have enough common sense to know that he should meet the victims of the Chibok girls abduction, unless a teenager from Pakistan begs him to do so.

    Soon, neutral voters out there (if there are still any) will see the stoopidity of this issueless emphasis and swing also to Buhari, making his position more impregnable and sealing the fate of PDP in the next election.

    I am educated in one of the most powerful universities in the world. Yet, I am so frustrated about the state of Nigeria today to the extent that even if you give me evidence that Buhari is an illiterate, I will still vote for him. That’s how dead serious the voters of APC will be.

    If Nigeria was a good country, I should be running for office rather than voting for a septuagenarian. But given the state of this country today, this septuagenarian is a thousand times better than a 30-year old President from PDP, let alone when the option is a sorry eyesore named Jonathan. Never again!

    Sai Buhari! Sai Buhari! Sai Buhari!

    PDP will be drenched on 14 February by this so-called certificateless man, and it will turn a new page in our history. When the result is announced in mid February, those who will lead this country in the future will learn that their overrated Harvard and Cambridge certificates will not be as important as their performance and problem-solving skills on a national scale.

  • True Nigerian

    Have you wondered why Femi, as a lawyer, has never handled any big brief despite brandishing a Cambridge law degree?

    It is because, in addition to his history of mental health and drug abuse in the UK, this is how POOR he reasons. Just look at the squalor of his reasoning as a lawyer: He says that since the constitution prescribes a minimum, it means that the constitution requires a proof. And so you start asking yourself, what is the question of fact that does not require a proof in law? As a lawyer that he is, he thinks that the law needs to specifically require a proof if the law requires the establishing of a fact. It is a ridiculous reasoning for a Cambridge-trained lawyer.

    Taken as a given that Buhari needs to show a proof that he has met the constitutional requirement, the next question then is, what threshold of evidence should be considered a sufficient proof?

    If the constitution requires education up to first school leaving certificate, is a degree-level military course in the UK, US, India and Nigeria higher than what the constitution requires? Obviously, the answer is YES. If the Constitution does not require paper certificate of the primary school education, and the candidate in question also has incontrovertible proof (both paper and professional opinion) of his degree-level military education, does that meet the requirement in terms of evidence and proof? Again, any lawyer that knows his onions knows that the answer is YES.

    Femi is a bad advertisement for Cambridge law degree.

    Anyway, this shows increasingly that there is panic in PDP and Aso Rock. It shows that these guys are really beginning to see that there is a real chance of an end to the 16 years of misery and unjustifiable darkness!

    • Onike24

      Femi is a walking example of why people should stay away from drugs. Femi went to Harrow, his grandfather went to Cambridge to study law in 1921. He is a third generation Cambridge man, he was born into immense wealth and privilege but all he does is spew nonsense on the pages of papers, which is why OBJ said once you feed him, he will start dancing for you. Such a great shame.

    Jonathan is being exposed big time with his
    lack of depth and inspiration in his messages(I not sure of his First Degree…talk
    less of P.hD) . In 2011 Election, he was covered by Obj and others around him.
    But this time around, we can now see how empty he is. Since the campaign
    started..they have not being able to tell Nigerians of their Plans in the next
    four years. NO SINGLE PLAN…OPPORTUNITY PRESENTED ITSELF YESTERDAY TO STATE
    HIS ACHIEVEMENTS AND PLANS FOR THE FUTURE, BUT HE WENT DEFENSIVE. Mr President,
    I am asking you as opposition have outlined their own plans:

    What is your plan on SECURITY that 20,000
    civilians have died since you took over?

    What is your plan on the ECONOMY that is in
    comatose?

    What is your plan on DIVERSIFICATION?

    What is your plan on INFRASTRUCTURE, when
    you claimed LAG-IBD EXP is under construction, while a single kilometre has not
    been done on the road?

    What is your plan on Electricity that was
    3,500 mgw when you took over and after spending $50 billion dollars,we are now
    having 3,000 mgw ….?

    What is your plan on INDUSTRIALISATION?

    What is your plan on UNITY of Nigeria after
    the division you created?

    What is your plan on RULE OF LAW that was
    non existent under your administration?

    What is your plan on PROBITY AND
    ACCOUNTABILITY..after you conjure the phrase ‘STEALING IS NOT CORRUPTION’?

    What is your plan on MORALITY when you
    watch and supported that 16 >19, 7>21?

    What is your plan on CORRUPTION when
    ministers under your watch can go to court to stop probe of alleged
    misappropriation of funds?

    What is your plan on INTEGRITY when
    auditors’ reports on $20 Billion is swept under the rug?

    It is quite clear that YOU : GOODLUCK EBELE
    JONATHAN is not the right man for the job.

    Is this man sane at all? The same that quoted the above still has the gut to spew malicious message or when he was copying the section, he didn’t use is glasses to read that it can be sworn to. INEC has come out severally that they cannot disqualified any candidate. If GEJ and his cohorts not satisfied they should approach the court for relieve.

    The reason why GMB’s certificates have become an issue now is because he is coasting home to victory. PDP is shooting the breeze. Having seen that the game is up, they are trifling around. Buhari is over-qualified to run for President. PDP is simply insulting Nigerian generals by suggesting that a man who rose to the pinnacle of his career, and who previously ruled the nation, is unqualified.

    The PDP cannot interpret the laws of the land. It is left for the courts to do. So, PDP, there you have it. Head to court and stop behaving like cry babies.

  • Dazmillion

    Mr Fani should actually read the constitution that he is quoting. The section says: (d) He has been educated up to at least School certificate level or its equivalent.”. The constitution is saying that the person needs only to have been educated up to secondary school level or it equivalent which can mean military service.

    It did not say to present a certificate of exam results, that means someone can present “F” for all subjects and still qualify.

    Any way if educated Fani can read the constitution then he should know that only a court can disqualify Buhari. If Fani is serious about his claims he should be heading to court immediately and not making loud speeches for his pay masters.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Was Buhari qualified to join the Army as it were ? did he meet the minimum requirement as it were ?

      Nigeria has moved on but the likes of Buhari simply don’t get it, his whole life in public service ought to be questioned critically if at any stage he broke the law or cut corners to attain a personal objective .
      THE FACT THAT BUHARI IS AN EX-MILITARY TYRANT WHO THROUGH THE FORCE OF ARMS REMOVED A DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT MAKES IT WORSE. COUP-PLOTTING AS WE KNOW IT IS A TREASONABLE OFFENCE WHICH ATTRACTS THE DEATH PENALTY.
      THE LIKES OF BUHARI SHOULD IN FACT HAVE NO BUSINESS WITH A DEMOCRATIC DISPENSATION,HE OUGHT TO BE TRIED, CONVICTED AND MADE TO PAY FOR HIS CRIMES AGAINST NIGERIANS !!

So as a general you cannot be there without passing Junior div. senior div, staff college and host of others.

Can’t you go to the schools Buhari claimed he attended to very before this dance of shame request to INEC? No wonder, we are seeing the result even before the election.

    All Nigerians who were alive & above the age of 5years through,1983/1985 knew how Babangida and his goon took over from Buhari /idiagbon regime. The wickedness following the overthrown were not fully known. But the vengeful evil Babagida put Buahari in Prison , will not allow him to see his sick mother despite plea from all Nigerians , the mother died , the evil IBB will not allow him to attend the burial, and say bye to dear and lovely Mother.
    Today we are now informed what happened to his property at the hand of Federal Government of the devil. They destroyed his property and carted away his certificates and destroyed it , because they wanted to break him. All Nigerians above who were matured knew this . The persistent of PDP now megaphone by Drug addict and corrupt politician who still has a pending case in court we allow allow more SYMPATHY for Buhari . INEC has already asked Fanikayode a lawyer and his cohorts of thieves to go to court.
    It is now clear that PDP cannot face Buhari , they are already afraid of their loss , how they are going to be tramped at the poll. It is going to be worse for them than the defeat NRC faced from SDP in 1993.
    Let the first Papa Deceive Pikin. cast the first stone.
    PDP should ask Babagida who luckily is not only their member but also the Father of the president Ebere Jonathan. Takuando Incommunicado should take note .
    On FeBuhari 14 , we stand . God bless Buhari / Osinbajo , Jonathan / Gambo and all Nigerians.

    Buhari’s Certificates: Go to Court, Agbakoba Advices Nigerians

    Foremost senior advocate and former president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Mr. Olisa Agbakoba, has advised that any Nigerian, who has evidence to show that any of the presidential candidates in the February 14 election lacks the minimum educational qualification, could approach the court to pronounce on the candidate’s eligibility or otherwise.

    Speaking amid the raging controversy surrounding the educational qualification of the presidential candidate of opposition All Progressive Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, Agbakoba said that although only the courts reserve the power to disqualify candidates, only a petition brought before a competent court by a Nigerian citizen can activate the powers of court to disqualify.

    “If you want to challenge a candidate’s aspiration to become president, then you bring your petition before the appropriate judge; upon the judge’s review of the documentation, he makes the proper pronouncement,” he
    said.

    Speaking in an exclusive interview with The Union, he stated that “According to section 31 of the Electoral Act, any Nigerian has the right to look into any candidate’s eligibility to contest in the election.”

    He maintained that “It is almost the same procedure as if you are getting married in the church. The priest would put up bans of marriage and say any person who has an objection to the couple that is getting married should raise the objection.

    “So the proper procedure now is that if you feel you have enough evidence why any of the presidential candidates cannot move forward on grounds of any disqualifying feature, then you approach a State or Federal High Court and make your case.”

    According to Section 31 (5) of the Electoral Act, 2010, “Any person who has reasonable grounds to believe that any information given by a candidate in the affidavit or any document submitted by that candidate is false may file a suit at the High Court of a State or Federal High Court against such person seeking a declaration that the information contained in the affidavit is false.”

    While stressing the position of law as established in the locus classicus suit of INEC v. Atiku, Agbakoba said: “INEC does not have the power to disqualify, as established in INEC v. Atiku. At that time (2007), I was the president of the NBA when INEC disqualified Atiku. The court held that it was only the court that can take that decision.”

    He maintained that the question of whether a candidate meets the constitutional stipulation as to minimum educational qualification to contest in an election is simple, saying “it is a straight forward matter.”

    According to him, “There is a minimum requirement prescribed by the constitution and if you do not have that minimum requirement of educational qualification, then you are disqualified.

    “For example it is either you have a degree to practice Law or you don’t.

    “If you challenge my qualification as a lawyer, all I need do is to show you my law certificates.

    “If I cannot produce it then I don’t have it. It is as simple as that.”

    On the procedure a citizen could follow to challenge a candidate’s eligibility, the lawyer said, “Now that INEC has published the list of presidential candidates, you start with an application to the umpire to give you the certified true copy of the nomination form lodged by the candidate.

    “If you get hold of, say, candidate A’s nomination form, and in comparing it with the constitutional requirement, you can see that he did not qualify, that would be the case you make before the court.”

    Muhammadu Buhari Exposed as Fraudulent……….

    Vanguard newspapers report that 3rd-party investigations reveal the following facts:

    • That, Muhammadu Buhari, by his own past admission in writing,
    spent less than four [4] years in primary school but did not obtain
    a completion certificate.

    • That, Muhammadu Buhari has no proved attendance
    of any secondary school, perhaps in consequence.

    •That in 1963 Muhammadu Buhari attended a 2-month
    basic rifle-training course at Cadet School in Aldershot,
    United Kingdom, which is NOT equivalent to School cert.

    • That the United States of America’s War College has
    confirmed in writing that it ‘..searched its records from
    1980 to 1990 and there is no ‘Masters student’ name
    like Muhammadu Buhari (in any combination)’ –

    contrary to earlier claims made.

    • That these four key facts were established by the
    investigative initiative of a group known as
    South-West Democracy Circle – with offices

    located at 5, Njamenna Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja.

    This is a senseless cheap propaganda from Femi-Fani kayode, God has taken the Position of the President of Nigeria from Chief Dr Azikuwe Ebele Goodluck Jonathan. He GEJ will receive 23 million in a year for his pension and that is enough.

  • tsunami1earthquake

    Mr Fani-Kayode, this matter has been debated variously on the Sahara Reporters website and the APC lawyer, Tunji Abayomi, has been oscillating from one point to the other, clutching at one straw or the other in order to defend Buhari. As a lawyer that he is, his only defence has been that his opponents in the debate were wrong! How could he, as a lawyer, say that other views to the situation were wrong? In other words, he was the repository of all knowledge. As a lawyer he should know that the only arbiter in matters like this is the court; and that is why the court was established in any society. In fact his way of argument put me off and I stopped responding. He made a try but his effort was not good enough. I’m sure if he were at the other side of the aisle, he would not be arguing this way.

    But, coming back again to this certificate issue, I smell a rat in all the stories Buhari releases to the public and to INEC. First story was that his certificates were with the Military Secretary; the latter saying that only copies were there and that Buhari was at liberty to apply for copies of those copies. Yet Buhari has seemed not to exploit that route. Then the next story was that his certificates got lost when his house was burgled and vandalized when he was in detention. Assuming those certificates were the only valuable the thieves/vandals were interested in, why has Buhari not made any attempts at obtaining copies of those certificates; at least statements of results from all the institutions he had attended? I ask this because Buhari, being a political office aspirant, should have read carefully the various laws regarding running for political offices in Nigeria, and should have known that those certificates were very essential for running for any political office. Yet he sat there, unmoved, unfazed and unconcerned, and did not make any move to retrieve those stolen certificates at least by way of statements of results. That is very intriguing and very worrying when looking at Buhari as a person and at Buhari as a potential president of this country. Is this the type of person his party is grooming to preside over the affairs of the nation?

    I’m not saying categorically that Buhari is a liar since I, as an observer of this drama, don’t have any hard evidence but facts of this matter seem to suggest that something is either wrong with Buhari as a person or that we have not heard the last about this certificate matter. The question I usually ask is this: what would it take Buhari to make those certificates available and put this difficult-to-forget matter lie? Is it that Buhari is merely displaying a trait of impunity and daring Nigerians to do their worse or is it that Buhari scarcely knows how to pursue this matter? I don’t know which to believe here but sometimes I’m tempted to see Buhari as someone not fit to be president of this country. This same phlegmatism at rising up to act even on matters concerning his own person was why IBB was able to remove him in what they called a ‘palace coup’ at the time. Buhari himself owned up that he knew IBB was planning to remove him and yet, as a soldier, he did nothing! Would one need any further proof to conclude that Buhari is not proactive, lacks decision and is a kind of leader who would rather allow a growing problem to blow away? People in administration would surely not hire anybody with this kind of characteristic. And I warn Buhari who now continues to show impertinence and brazen impunity over this certificate matter that he is running into the murky waters of a lame-duck president, should he win this election. Those very people who have been protecting him by making various ridiculous constructions over this issue would be the very people that would tether him to a fence and render him ineffective. He should remember, in the words of George Orwell in his ‘Animal Farm’, “the very day this strength of yours would fail you, Mr Jones would send you to the knackers!” Don’t allow this certificate matter to be a reason you could be sent to the knackers in your presidency, should you win.

    And to Fani-Kayode, the INEC has said anybody who has any evidence in this case should go to court. If your party has such evidence, there is still time to approach the courts for arbitration. We are tired of debating this matter on Cyberspace.

  • By popular demand

    WHY PREMIUM TIMES IS BEST AND MOST RELIABLE…..

    If eligible; and voters choose Buhari, so be it; or, if they choose Jonathan; so be it as well.
    A Journalist’s duty is to publish full facts and leave electors to make their judgement call.
    Premium Times exceptionally does that even-handedness the best in journalism’s tradition.

    I give kudos to Editors of Premium Times for demonstrating honesty of purpose in reportage.
    Your Editors win discerning readers from other websites who want the whole truth – not a slant.
    No newspaper or website can decide a country’s election. A website delusively thinking it can,
    is either sick or silly. A narrative presented with sense of responsibility is all journalism means.

    A sense of responsibility means even-handed use of the same principle to both sides.
    Theft by one person should not be reported as negligence on the part of another person.
    That is no longer journalism, but irresponsible scribbling, to swell the journalist’s pockets.

    • By popular demand

      …………(2) WHY PREMIUM TIMES IS BEST AND MOST RELIABLE

      No journalist in history has ever decided the outcome of a national election in any country.
      It is folly and supercilious of any journalist to delusively think he can influence voters for APC;
      or PDP or even APGA, by publishing a slew of tendentious propaganda. That will not work;
      it is rather a journalist’s insane folly by other means.

      The aggregate intelligence in the greater society is much bigger than that in any newsroom.
      Quarterbacking for a political party under the pretext of reporting the news is an irresponsible
      bug in several other media and websites.

      It never worked successfully anywhere in the world. The public will instead react to it with
      cynical scepticism that such journalists are over-bribed. No newspaper or website slurred
      with bias or bribe can ever exit from under that dark cloud without a miracle.

      A self-convinced newspaper or website working for a political party must publish a red caution.
      It must be honest to announce with caveat emptor that readers should NOT expect fair news.
      Simultaneously, it must declare truthfully that it exists as mouth-piece media for a (named) party.
      Readers could then be less irritated by latterly clever-by-half attempts to disguise bias as news.

  • petersen

    APC should display the certificates to shun PDP. Any document coming from the military board must be the originals of his certificates because that is what he stated in the affidavit. Not this cooked up stories by Lai Mahammed.

    How low can Jonathan go?

    It is a very sad day for our democracy if this is the best cheap pot shot PDP can come up with in their quest to discredit a viable opposition candidate. This whole certificate brouhaha by PDP is very telling of a party whose floundering ship is sinking fast without a lifeboat in sight. GMB may not have a PHD but he is by far a better man to steer the ship of state to a safe anchor than the cack-handed mumu we have as a president. GMB – we are with you all the way to Aso Rock. The momentum is with you – not even the faltering PDP machinery can stop you.

      The situation is different in a military rule, where laws are dispensed with…
      Under military rule, armed (power) robbers seize power at gun point and impose themselves on you as your rulers…
      That was the case of Buhari when he seized power in a coup d’etre on Dec 31st, 1983….
      All he needed then to become head of state was the gun…
      In a democracy, on the contrary, the law sets the standards, part of which is educational qualification…
      It is not PDP that is the problem…
      Blame the law that sets the standard for eligibility in respect of anyone aspiring to occupy the highest office in the land….

      When did asking for a candidates qualifications become rubbish? I don’t like this shameful system in Nigeria where they make one rule for Northerners and another for people east of the Niger.

      There is something terribly wrong with a system where an illiterate Northerner is allowed to be a president, bank manager, federal minister, judge, general, infact anything he aspires to become, but they talk down on every educated man or woman from east of the Niger.

      Dr Iweala, Dr Tam West, Dr Jonathan, Dr Ogbemudia etc have often been described as illiterates by Fulani Yorubas while at the same time they tell us the Imam Buhari, Gen Abacha, Dogonyaro, Hajiya Turai, Usman Hassan Katsina them are better qualified than anybody east of the Niger.

        Tawanda: Sometimes you guys don’t give Obasanjo credit for something.
        He may not be as educated as a good country’s president should be and may be
        crass and slovenly in speech and manners, but he has instincts to sense failure.

        He knows when to run. He knows a lost battle from a distance. His blitzkrieg book attack
        on President Jonathan failed to resonate because Obasanjo does not have the bona fides
        – the good faith and honesty – to back that assault. And once Jonathan came hard on Obasanjo
        just two days ago, defining Obasanjo as no better than a motor park tout
        Obasanjo ran out of his trenches barefoot, waving a white flag
        like a captured soldier in tears. What a shame!

      I am not Obasanjo’s spokesman, all i am just saying is there are many interpretations

        Muhammadu Buhari Exposed as Fraudulent……….

        Vanguard newspapers report that 3rd-party investigations reveal the following facts:

        • That, Muhammadu Buhari, by his own past admission in writing,
        spent less than four [4] years in primary school but did not obtain
        a completion certificate.

        • That, Muhammadu Buhari has no proved attendance
        of any secondary school, perhaps in consequence.

        •That in 1963 Muhammadu Buhari attended a 2-month
        basic rifle-training course at Cadet School in Aldershot,
        United Kingdom, which is NOT equivalent to School cert.

        • That the United States of America’s War College has
        confirmed in writing that it ‘..searched its records from
        1980 to 1990 and there is no ‘Masters student’ name
        like Muhammadu Buhari (in any combination)’ –
        contrary to earlier claims made.

    The problem with Nigeria is that we are being governed with English language that over 90% of Nigerians do not command properly. Section 131(d) of the Constitution says: He /She has been educated up to at least School Certificate level or its equivalent. Even those who sat for School Certificate and failed are educated up to School Certificate level which means that not all who are educated up to School Certificate level should possess a certificate. At best, what the constitution demands from any candidate is a proof that one has attended a secondary school or its equivalent. Being educated up to School Certificate level or its equivalent is not the same thing as possessing a School Certificate.

      I am not sure if it could be accepted that someone who attended the full course of a secondary school education only on lectures without sitting for the final examination will be deemed as having been educated up to school certificate level.
      How do you reconcile the situation where someone had a first leaving (primary) school certificate, never went to or saw the inside of a secondary school, trained by way of article clerk, was able to attain part qualifications in Accountancy; but never fully qualified?
      Looks like section 131(d) needs to be revisited and properly defined.

    He said he studied economics in the United States of America in the 1970s. Fine.
    Now, judged by the standard of an economist, Dele Sobowale told intentional lies
    three weeks ago in his column where he published a chart stating that Lagos state
    debt is just one(1) billion U.S dollars only

    I was very dis-appointed by such lies-telling. He was in a position to know better,
    if he were honestly pursuing the truth but i doubt that he cared for the truth at all.

    Whereas, on May 21st, last year, the Lagos State Commissioner for Finance, Ayodeji Gbeleyi,
    had publicly confirmed that Lagos state debts, as at May 2014, stood at whopping N435 billion –
    including N275 billion in bonds – equivalent to 2.7 billion United States dollars as at that date.
    It was later on that Lagos state went on to borrow additional one billion dollars from World Bank.
    In Dele Sobowale’s economics 2.7 billion + 1 billion dollars = one [1] billion dollars only. Nonsense!

    A rejoinder to an article “A President Without Balls” by FFK; see Leadership Newspaper of Friday October 4, 2013 page 72.
    I INSIST : JONATHAN IS A PRESIDENT WITHOUT BALLS-FEMI FANI KAYODE
    “70 more people killed in Borno and Adamawa states by Boko Haram today.
    Gosh. What a wonderful and effective Commander-in-Chief we have.
    Jonathanians clap for yourselves. No matter how much you use your EFCC and your SSS to harrass us I maintain that you still remain a ”President Without Balls” (olori oko ti o lepon). Instead of using the state’s resources to try and jail your
    perceived enemies even though they have done no wrong why don’t you be… a man and a real President and fight Boko Haram. As I wrote in my article titled ”A President Without Balls” (or ”The Gutless Eunuch and the Spirit Of The Jagaban”) you are not only incompetent and clueless but you are just ”weak, weak, weak”.
    May the blood of all those innocent Nigerians that were slaughtered by Boko Haram yesterday and the 7000 that have been slaughtered by them in the last 7 years haunt you and yours until the day you die. No matter what you do, as long as there is life in me, I will oppose your evil rule and your corrupt and wicked government.”

    In Nigeria, only four sets of people can vote for Jonathan and PDP next month:

    (1) those who are blinded by corruption and therefore afraid of the unknown, should power change hands.

    (2) those who are intellectually blind.

    (3) those who are blinded by ethnicity.

    (4) those who are suffering from a combination of the above terminal sicknesses”

    Therefore, think of the implications of voting Jonathan and PDP to you, your children and grandchildren.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      In Nigeria,only four sets of people can vote for Buhari and the APC next month :

      1, Those who are blinded by the ideology of Jihad and extremism therefore afraid of a free liberal society.

      2. Those who are terminally retrogressive and would like to drag Nigeria back to the stone-age.

      3. Those blinded by hate and the born-to-rule mentality

      4. Those who prefer subjugation and unequal treatment for all tribes in Nigeria .

      Therefore ignore the APC threats of violence and mayhem and vote for civilisation….VOTE JONATHAN !!

          Well, if he had the papers he would have submitted them. Obviously, he doesn’t. Again, it is too late for him now to tell the world that the affidavit he swore in lieu of the certificates is false. He has to go all the way to the end of the election and come back a defeated man.

  • Remi

    Fani kayode and PDP are desperately looking for a back door way to prevent Buhari from contesting because they are afraid that defeat is imminent. Otherwise if they are sure of victory why are they worried about an issue that they themselves know they cannot win. With the level of our education in this country why do they consider a man that attended the prestigious war colleges in USA, UK and India is not educated up to secondary level in Nigeria. They had better work hard because whether they like it or not Buhari is contesting to win.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      The law must apply to all Nigerians equally,Buhari will not get the “sacred cow” treatment being mulled around by APC oppressors . The old tyrant must realise that this issue is not going away,Nigerians will not submit to his dictatorial arrogance at all.

            …..with your mentality I know you would not believe that you encourage poverty and illiteracy by ignoring issues like Buhari’s certificate but you do…..SO YES IT IS A BIG DEAL TO INSIST THAT Buhari follows the due process especially considering that this is a guy who comes from the poorest part of the world (not only Nigeria), overthrew a democratically elected government, and promising semi-literate NIgerians to fight corruption when HE HIMSELF is an epitome of corruption…

            ……..corruption is not only about STEALING MONEY (that is the symptom)…..rather DISTORTING OF OUR CONSTITUTION through overthrow of government, supporting Sharia law in a secular nation is the GREAT GREAT GRANDPARENTS OF CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA……..THINK!!!….even a semi-literate can think….

In the areas of Education, unemployment, security, food crisis, transportation, health care system, power sector, drinkable water, e.t,c, If they refused to focus on what cannot bennefits Nigerians, I am affraid they are digging a grave of failure for themselves. Let both Presidential Candidates continue to focus on the subject matters to the poor Nigerians. By now less than a month to the election Nigerians have not heard anything concrete from the two Presidential candidates than name callings. Let us think like people with visions and seriousness.

    This Buhari certificate saga must be actioned in court as soon as possible…time is on nobody’s side…
    The courts must pronounce on it now!!!
    We need to move forward!!!!
    I say as soon as possible, because the courts must dispose of this matter before Feb. 14…
    If the courts cannot dispose of this constitutional logjam foisted on us by mystical Buhari, and elections must hold on Feb. 14, then APC is obliged to replace Buhari with another presidential flag-bearer that is qualified…
    But if APC is fixated on Buhari, then the opposition is furtively plotting to frustrate this election; perhaps they are calling for its postponement, as the case against Buhari might only be concluded at the Supreme Court…
    And of course this means time, time far beyond Feb. 14…
    Consequently, we are now locked with the choice of either side-stepping (or subverting) our constitution in order to accommodate Buhari or frustrating the Feb. 14 election so that the courts would have enough time to pronounce on the eligibility of Buhari to contest for the highest office in the land…..

        • Bigafo

          I think you are intelligent enough to understand that this is not an issue over the right of an illiterate in criticising the President and the style of governance in his or her country. So also no one has indicated that professorship in English Grammar is an absolute criteria obtainable for the right to comment on the performance of a sitting President. However, he or she who makes reference to and makes a mockery of another person’s/subject’s qualification/s (professional or academic); should also show certain (minimum) expected level of literacy and constructive public criticism.

          • Ore ara ilu

            You are not showing it either. “…an absolute criterion…” NOT “…an absolute criteria..”. Grammar is not an issue here. Our forefathers were more intelligent but did not go to school. True or false?

    The case of certificates of General Buhari is been used to distract attention from making concrete points of the election. Let them put their plans for electorates to judge. If it is continuation of Corruption and weakness let us read them. We are literate enough to read between the line. The American War College sent openly his certificate of the College. Also some maintained that he was a student at Katsina College where he was a prefect. The funny part of it now is that some are now afraid of him becoming the President. Where were these Fani Kayode, Abati and Doyin Okupe when he contested in many elections earlier? The handwriting is on the wall for the corrupt government of Jonathan. We can not continue like this. We should defend the Country from corrupt politician.

    ” Despite the suffering of Nigerians, one thing that is not in doubt is the commitment of President Buhari to building a new Nigeria. If it will take him, his wife and children to eat just once a day to get the economy on track, he looks like one who would do so.” This paragraph from the writers article is false and it beats my imagination why a writer will commit such blunder. Mr President cannot sanction people for secret recruitment as he’s the biggest beneficiary of such arrangements, thanks to Junaid Muhammed we all now know Mr President has in-laws, nieces and nephews in government. Mr President cannot go on a meal a day because he increased the budget for feeding at the villa, increased budget for maintenance of the state house clinic and included outrageous amount for wildlife conservation at the villa. He’s still maintaining 12 Aircrafts in the presidential fleet yet claims Nigeria is broke, who is he deceiving.
