EXCLUSIVE: Real reason Buhari is travelling to U.S.

Muhammadu Buhari

Contrary to claims that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress [APC], is travelling to the United States for medical reasons, PREMIUM TIMES has obtained a correspondence indicating Mr. Buhari is only honouring an invitation by the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies [CSIS].

Media reports had suggested some days ago that the APC candidate had become so sick that he was planning a medical trip abroad. Mr. Buhari responded by saying he was not sick but only had cold.

But PREMIUM TIMES has now obtained a letter signed by the Director, African Programme of CSIS, Jennifer Cooke, inviting Mr. Buhari to the organisation’s headquarters in Washington DC “to give a major public address on Nigeria’s future as it stands on the edge of a pivotal national elections.”

Ms. Cooke gave Mr. Buhari the liberty to choose a convenient date for the proposed lecture.

“We propose to hold this event on a day of your choosing on either the week of January 5th or the week of January 26th, 2015 but will of course do our best to accommodate your schedule should you have other preferences.”

Travelling at this time would mean Mr. Buhari opted for the week of January 26th.

Ms. Cooke who said the event is expected to attract a large number of United State policymakers, academics, business leaders and members of the diaspora, also told Mr. Buhari that he would be expected to take part in a private off-the-record briefing with a small group of senior US government officials and U.S Congress.

“The event would be on-the-record and given the importance of Nigeria’s elections would be certain to attract a large audience of U.S. policymakers, academics, business leaders, and members of the diaspora. In addition, we invite you to take part in a private, off-the-record briefing with a small group of senior officials from the U.S. government and U.S. Congress. This will be an excellent opportunity to develop contacts and articulate your key messages to an influential audience of foreign policy decision-makers.”

“The CSIS Africa Program has long been engaged in research and analysis on the African continent, and Nigeria specifically. For the past year, we have hosted a conference series analyzing various dimensions of Nigeria’s forthcoming elections and their implications for peace, security, and prosperity in Africa’s most important country. These conferences have provided a platform for Nigerian statesmen to interact directly with Washington policymakers and we wanted to extend this opportunity to you. We hope that your schedule permits your participation and look forward to receiving a positive reply.”

    Good. Please increase the integrity of your tabloid by doing investigative journalism and not the normal “anonymous source” Nigerian newspapers are used too

    • Howzat

      BUHARI MUST NOT GO TO AMERICA

      A trip to America at this time will blow Buhari to pieces.

      The first question the American journalists will ask is……

      • Howzat

        BUHARI SHOW YOUR CERTIFICATE

        • Aparicion

          Take him to court or FOH!

        • Babandum

          Jonathan, where is your thesis?

      • Al Jihad

        MY MISSION IN POLITICS ………Muhammadu Buhari

        “Sharia should be introduced in full across Nigeria. I will continue to show openly
        and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping
        all over Nigeria. God willing, we will NOT stop the agitation for the total implementation
        of the Sharia in the country. It is a legal responsibility which God has given us,
        within the context of one Nigeria, to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia
        wholeheartedly. What remains for Muslims in Nigeria is for them to
        re-double their efforts and educate Muslims on the need to promote
        the full implementation of Sharia law.”

        …….General Muhammadu Buhari

        (August 27, 2001)

        • Aparicion

          STFU! FOH!

        • Nonso Eze

          Shariah is always better that killing innocent people bcos shariah will only work on you if you do something wrong and by the way sharia will only affect those that believe in islam. It will never include or touch christian! Shariah ideology is always better than boko haram sponsored by ijaw guys and thier boss. Says no of killing innocent citizen in the name of boko haraamm

      • Aparicion

        FOH!

      • Babandum

        You think Americans are like you? They don’t judge your intellectual and leadership abilities by your certificates. That is why none of their presidents is a PhD holder even though they have the highest number of universities (3,301) and PhD holders in the world.

  • tyson

    Let him present the certificate he useD in enlisting into the Nigerian Army to INEC and stop all this childish games of Night Soil Men in APC. Again what is so special about being invited by an NGO or whatever body in the USA? Such that APC want to use it to score cheap political points? Buhari is supposed to have joined the Nigerian Army with a school cert like every other Nigerian-So why is APC and the Pastors behind him shielding him from presenting his certs to the public? We cannot have a quota system general and a quota system president–for now–The Fulanis must fight for every ball of akara like any other zone in Nigeria—and stop behaving like a spoilt aje butter kids from CHAD-One law for Jonathan and another soft one for the Fulanis–and those who killed Kudirat Abiola?

    • Stone

      @ Tyson what is your level of Education, l mean where you stopped at school.

    • Aparicion

      Take him to court!

    • Bidemi Lukman

      Nothing is so special other than having a strategic off the record meeting with senoir US officials. Do you know what that means? US have seen the hand writting on the wall and need to pally with him. Simple

      • Babandum

        Right bros. They want GMB to assure them of their strategic interests in Africa and Nigeria. Once GMB does that, GEJ is history.

    • Ha

      ‘tyson’ and ‘tiresome’ are synonyms. Depression kills. So watch out!

    • Ha

      “One law for Jonathan and another soft one for fulani….” Yes because he is dumb and naturally clueless, so he needs to be drilled more. None of Fulani presidents had Jonathan’s qualification, but who is as clueless and as dumb as Jona? Fulanis have natural leadership qualities, you can’t do anything about this. The clueless one cannot do anything about that too.

  • Arike Bello-Banky

    who is deceiving who? He has gone to U S for medical attention like the way Tinubu has been going to UK every week for check. All we are saying is that we do not need a sick president cos we are not ready for any state burial. Buhari should respect himself and just step down. However, i pity the northerners who think they are wise to have brought in Buhari cos sooner he will be late and Osinbanjo takes over

    • Aparicion

      And if Osinbajo takes over? I’m a northerner and I don’t give a shit where you come from as long as you know what you’re doing. “Osinbajo was not a clueless choice”. FOH!

      • Arike Bello-Banky

        dont worry, you all will soon start crying again and by that time we all will agree to sign the treaty of dissolution and then you northerners will know what you are up to…. Ire ooo!!!!

        • Aparicion

          FOH!

        • Aparicion

          Dissolution will be a better fate than for that plonker to wipe out our population. At least then we will face our problems since he clearly doesn’t care. Yes! I am all for dissolution! Now FOH!

      • La’eazie

        Shet! You nailed it! The choice of a certificateless Buhari is far better than GEJ whose Phd certificate makes a ridicule of the Doctorate degree…all I just see is wicked people trying to connect the APC change agenda with Islamization of Nigeria…what has Islam done to you for heaven sake?why don’t you people ever analyse the actions that led to other people’s reactions?anyways I don’t hate GEJ, it’s his party I hate and I’ll be forever grateful to anyone who kicks PDP out

        • Aparicion

          Only FOOLs will let religious differences or ethnic mumbo jumbo get in the way of their progress.

        • Bidemi Lukman

          Bros, I think Nigeria Phd holders need to protest and ensure GEJ Phd is retrieved. He has rediculed this country so much so that a toddler from Pakistan had to travel to Nigeria to talk sense to him just as one agbero has to wishy washy him from South Africa.

          If GEJ was not guilty of what that guy said, Nigeria suppose to summon SA ambassador on such statement while SA gov will apologise to Nigeria

    • Bidemi Lukman

      I know you must be a god in charge of death and know who next is dying. Mandella was President at age 76 was alive till age 95. So, Mrs god of death, go and kill Buhari. People like you are enemy of progress. You still prefare a president that publicly said what Nigerians are calling corruption is mere stealing. This means as long as he lives, he would never prosecute a thief. You and I know stealing of pubilc funds is the major problem this country is facing.

      I have no doubt that Superior GOD, greater than you goddess of death Arike Bello Banky (if that is your name) will surely disappoint by making Buhari rule this country and afterwards, live to witness his great grand children.

      goddess Arike, death is inevitable, do you know if you and I will outlive Buhari? Is my prayer I outlive him becasuse I worth being his grand child and I belive you dont need same prayer since you aleady know who will die next

      • Arike Bello-Banky

        i dont need you to say the same prayer for me. i live by what is in the scripture (Bible). you APC e-goats are found of lying…. if you are unfit, you go and take care of yourself. my take is this and i will continue to say it that Buhari will never get there

        • Bidemi Lukman

          This is the problem with we Nigerians. We are the most hypocite specie I ever known. We are too religious. You procalim Christainity that says you should love your neighbour as thyself and yet, you wish a being like you a death just because he is aged ; even if he is sick. Do you know how many times Mandella was announced death while on sick bed before he finally died? Your statement is at variant to the sripture you belive in. If the scripture you belive in actually supported your death wish for your felow being, no case.

          If you happen to be Buhari’s daughter, how will you feel about such statement or if someone say similar thing to your dad? Are you a daughter to Fayose, the god of death?

          Arike, lets face rerality here, I am no party card member and every Nigerian have right to support political party of thier choice. Am not scolding you for not support Buhari, but dont wish him death.

          The point am driving at is on no circumstance must you wish a fellow death.

          Arike baby, I know you are dady’s pet and will take correction.

          Cheers!!!

          • Arike Bello-Banky

            so what is the hypocrisy in saying the man is sick and is drawing close to his death? you guys preach islam as a religion of peace and you go ahead killing ppl like animals. i say it and will continue to say it that Buhari will never get to aso rock. Gbam!!!!!

          • Bidemi Lukman

            Am happy you finally take correction by re-phrasing you statment “i say it and will continue to say it that Buhari will never get to aso rock” Gbaga!!!!!!!!!!

          • Arike Bello-Banky

            i mean he will die before time

          • Babandum

            We chose an excellent presidential candidate in the person of Buhari and went ahead to choose a VP twice as good! So, Arike, you can see it is a win-win situation for the masses of this country.

          • Bidemi Lukman

            OK oooo. Am finally convinced that the scripture you belive allows you to wish fellow human death just as your dady Fayose displayed by quoting your sripture verse.

            “i mean he will die before time” So, goddes, you know his time and you know he will die b4 his time.

          • blueeyedkitten

            i think you need somebody to be really hash on you… since you refuse to listen when talked to calmly. ofcourse buhari would never get to aso rock, because you might not be alive when he gets there. Gbam!!!!!!!!!!

          • Arike Bello-Banky

            And you think that will move me. i tell you if i become harsh on you, i bet you u will be crying after reading it. Foool

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            May your days on earth be long and blessed !

    • UNAFFECTED

      So all you want is for Buhari to step down? All this talk about certificate, ill-health, Islamization are just ploys to stop him from contesting because the pendulum is swinging in his favour. Just realize that you are saying this about another human being, a father and grandfather. Buhari didn’t do anything to you except to offer himself for an election, win his party’s nomination and just going round the country soliciting for votes. Did he break any laws in doing this? No. Yet there you are without any access to his medical records or even being a doctor yourself saying that he will die because he is running for president. I don’t think you have reviewed your statements but just know that the law of karma waits at the other end.

  • Big Bros

    General Buhari’s presidential bid is connected with Islamic State of Nigeria.
    It has nothing to do with academic certificates or any grand intellectual reformation.
    A little child in any other part of Nigeria knows there’s an on-going Islamic Jihad.

    The only group of people who do NOT know this simple fact in Nigeria
    are the Yoruba Christians in the South-West having the highest number
    of professors, doctorates and university graduates, but who will rather
    throng, en masse, behind an Islamic party – APC.
    How my people perish for lack of knowledge!

    • staaaaaaaaaaa

      Yes yorubas dont believe in nonsense! How come Buhari cancelled nigeria participation in OIC in 1984, yet Jonathan organised a delegation for nigeria to attend OIC meeting in 2014?

  • tyson

    The analysis, context and rationale of the think-tank’s projections is contained in the Brookings publication titled: Foresight Africa – Top Priorities for the continent (January 2015).

    “Though the election is expected to be very competitive, the odds still favor President Jonathan.’

    According to Brookings, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a fragile anti-jonathan establishment with a sole purpose to return power to the north.

    “The party is, however, a fragile one that seems united only in its quest to wrest the presidency from Jonathan or to have power “returned” to the north”

    “The APC gets much of its strength from tapping into anti-Jonathan sentiments in the Muslim north and grievances among the Yoruba who feel that the Jonathan administration has ignored them in key political appointments.”

    The Report also indicated that the APC’s strategy is hinged on a combination of popular votes from the North West, North East and “the battleground SouthWest” but also hinted at the possibility of Bola Ahmed Tinubu not delivering the region contrary to speculations.

    “What remains to be seen, however, is whether Bola Tinubu—a former governor of Lagos State who played a pivotal role in the formation of the APC and is considered to be the party’s strongest mobilizer in the southwest—will be very enthusiastic in delivering the battleground southwest to the APC during the elections.”

    CERTIFICATE SCANDAL REVEALS BUHARI AS A DISHONEST MAN THAT LACKS PERSONAL INTEGRITY

    All along the APC and most Nigerians have always presented Buhari as an honest man with nothing to hide.

    But the certificate scandal has revealed that Buhari is an extremely dishonest man who bluntly will not come clean and tell Nigerians the truth .. no matter what.

    I really do not believe anything that emanates from Buhari or anything that Buhari says anymore.

    • True Nigerian

      Why can’t Jonathan and his campaigners speak without impersonation of someone or some other fraudulent activities such as writing smear e-mails by a presidential aide who then sends the e-mails under the name of Wendel Simlin? Can’t you see how damaging this style of yours can be to Jonathan? You guys just think that everything is Propaganda.

      • SAM .A

        You have forgotten that all PDPigs, their e-rats ,including their President are living up to their names :People Deceiving Party. Please refer all the campaign promises of GEJ of 2011 , state by state , how many have been fulfilled ? 2 examples : Electricity& Niger bridge @ Onitsha . They have been deceiving Nigerians . He once told an audience in Europe ,that it he can’t complete Power in 4 years ,he is not fit to continue .

  • tundemash

    Ms. Cooke who said the event is expected to attract a large number of United State policymakers, academics, business leaders and members of the diaspora, also told Mr. Buhari that he would be expected to take part in a private off-the-record briefing with a small group of senior US government officials and U.S Congress.

    Look like US is already engaging the in-coming President; e-rats can g hang themsleves

    The US have boarded the Buhari bandwagon! You can hate them, but you can’t deny their influence. Change is Inevitable!

  • ikenna

    Things don’t add up with this write up. He denied that he is travelling out now the mouth piece of APC (Premium news) is trying to justify when Buhari is travelling out. Please let us be sincere to ourselves and there is nothing wrong saying that Buhari is going for a medical checkup instead of lies.

  • Action_Nigeria

    BUHARI IS A MONUMENTAL EMBARRASSMENT TO NIGERIA & AFRICA

    I would like to plead with APC to all that they can to stop Buhari from travelling to the United States so that Nigeria can be shielded from further ridicule and enbarrament by an illiterate Nigerian Army General (Retired) who boasted out of ignorance that he would personally and single handedly stabilize global Oil Prices.

    • Aparicion

      Who has embarrassed Nigeria more than GEJ? Chad is offering to rescue Nigerian towns now, he has embarrassed Nigerians both grammatically and intellectually, people laugh at Nigerians now because of GEJ, Nigerians are seen as charity cases . Just…. FOH!

    • Thepeople

      The event would be on record, it would rational, intelligent and fair to wait and hear his views and performance.

      • Action_Nigeria

        Buhari has no views and he is incapable of having any views ….. the only view he has is that he would stop corruption and stop Boko Haram …….. hogwash ……. talking from off the top of his head … making no sense.

        Buhari could not stop corruption in PTF ….. in fact Buhari erected corruption in PTF ….. how then can he stop corrption in a much bigger Nigeria.

        Buhari should stop corruption by first asserting his credibility ….. to assert his credibility Buhari should present his none existent educational certificates to Nigerians ….. makes sense.

        How on earth can Buhari stop Boko Haram when Buhari has publicly stated that the goals of Boko Haram represent his lifetime goals inter alia:

        • Thepeople

          Politics or no politics, at times it may be more intelligent to make yourself more believeable, otherwise you are doing your paymasters no favours. It becomes exercise in futility.

          • True Nigerian

            Do you think they are intelligent enough to understand what you just said? If they know that, they would have known the damage inherent in comparing Jonathan to Jesus and by referring to their boss as the best President that ever ruled this country.

            For Jonathan and his recruits, loudness is equal to conviction and lies are equal to good logic. That is exactly why Jonathan is left wondering about what has happened to his popularity in 2011. He and his aides are simply too absent-minded to see the context you just offered them in your comment.

            Anybody who wants to be believable will not have Femi Fani-Kayode as the face of his campaign – a man who has had more negative and most discrediting words on Jonathan than anybody else.

    • Concerned Citizen

      Can you kindly provide evidence of him saying he will stabilize the GLOBAL oil PRICES?

      • Action_Nigeria

        Where have you been ? How could you have missed it ?

        • Babandum

          Where is the evidence? They asked you a simple question and you replied with a question.

          • Concerned Citizen

            Thanks Babandum…

        • Concerned Citizen

          Once again… I have heard him make commentary on STABILISING THE NIGERIAN OIL MARKET…. But nothing about GLOBAL OIL PRICES. Important to pay attention to details as we Nigerians tend to jump on the band wagon without doing our own diligence. Hence, why I ask you to enlighten me.

          As my brother once explained to a layman, if you like eating beef suya and you rare your own cow in your house but yet you pay extortionate “net” amount to buy meat from the market, wouldn’t you want to review your cow business?

            Please do me a favour and answer my question otherwise please don’t go about making noise.

            I will do you a favor and direct you to the December 2014 interview with Channels TV (accessible via YouTube where GMB made this comment, which all the PDP fans have now twisted, cooked, grilled and bbq). He never used the words “GLOBAL” and “PRICE”. That is the key.

            Many thanks for not answering my question and doing a Jonathan on me (aka answering a question with a question / dodging a question because you don’t have the content to support a statement you made)

            Take care and vote WISELY

      He was not an embarrassment when he went to War college in Pennsylvania US , Reno you are getting psychotic . If you really have a formal education at all , you will appreciate other people’s level of education.
      It is certain now you desperate, frustrated and suicidal, because your repeated demand for certificate will never materialize . Therefore, we are placing you on suicidal watch

      • Concerned Citizen

        Agree with you.. APC have been matured and measured in their campaign. Love their little issue whiteboards and their overall campaign has really IRKED PDP

        Re certificates, I have a feeling they will release it a week before the election and shut all these people up.

        Reality is that in AFRICA you can get a phd in 2 months (e.g Grace Mugabe, Zimbabwean first lady), so I wonder why they are soooooo focused on the certificates even though INEC has done its due diligence and OK’ed the candidate

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        The truth is that the old tyrant was ill-educated,he does not possess a first school leaving certificate and O’levels . He must produce those certificates or they will hunt him all the way to Washington and back

  • ceweeco projects

    There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right. APC, your propaganda has fail, a clear conscience should fear no accusation. If all the world hated you and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved of you and absolved you from guilt,
    you would not be intimidate and people will stand by you, but we know how desperately wicked you are APC, Your conscience is the measure of the honesty of your selfishness. Listen to it carefully. The Roots of your Violence APC is Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice, Politics without principles has all being your trades mark.

    • Mark

      Duro:

      A country which thumb-prints to elect Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari
      authorizes him to spread Sharia Law to the 36 states of Nigeria.
      Such a country would forfeit international help against the resulting
      Islamic State of Nigeria, because under international law, the U.N
      is not permitted to overturn the free votes fairly cast voluntarily
      by Christians yearning for an Islamic State of Nigeria.

      • Thepeople

        Dubai, the London of most corrupt Nigerians. Where they do business, buy houses, have birthday parties and even burial ceremonies is in an Islamic state. Indonesia…Islamic state. Nigeria could do better could better as an Islamic state if it could be like UAE and Lagos like Dubai. There is limit to which all these deceit and gingoism can go. Nigerians know better. Ask father Mbaka!!!!

        • Mark

          My brother, Islamism is the problem with Nigeria, all other crises derive from that.

          • Thepeople

            Thank you Mr Mark. You know that is not true. The problem is there are no true and patriotic leadership that would not use religion in any form or shape to gain political advantage. A leader that truely believes in our people, Nigerians no matter where they come from and what religion they are. A leadership that would make Lagos, Ibadan, Sokoto, Damaturu, Jos, Enugu, Port Harcourt……Dubai. All these corrupt and irresponsible leaders go to Dubai, have houses in Dubai, their families in Dubai. Shameless they come back, learning nothing on how to improve our people but only to tell those who would and could be deceived that Islam is a problem.

            Thank you for your response! Now since the event is a PUBLIC one, could you please avail us with a copy here to verify what you just said. Of course being aware of corporate rules and regulations, I know if you had no power to avail us with the public invitation in a public forum such as this, then your superiors would also NOT have sanctioned your clarifying the official position of CSIS in this forum! So please we are waiting to see a communication to show us you invited both GEJ and GMB to this historic PUBLIC event.

          • Jennifer Cooke

            The invitation will be posted at csis “dot” org, and the event will be webcast live and posted at csis “dot” org/program/csis-nigeria-forum. Hope you will tune in. Babandum, we invited candidates from the two leading parties, in part for logistic reasons. Throughout the year, we’ve had a range of civil society, political party leaders, and state officials, offering a neutral venue to share perspectives. There are many Nigerians living in the Washington area, as well as many other supporters of Nigeria who wish to see a successful ,free and fair election, regardless of eventual outcome.
            Signing off,
            Jennifer

          • Babandum

            And permit me to also add a trivial question: Why did you invite only two (you said both) parties?

        • True Nigerian

          It’s really terrible how Jonathan’s government and its paid online supporters have embraced fraudulent and impersonation as their preferred means of communicating to Nigerians. It is really a poor choice. But then, it is also good, because that is exactly why Nigerians will have a new ruling party and new leader in February.

          From the word go, Jonathan appointed questionable aides; from Ima Niboro, to Reno, to Doyin Okupe, Alison Madueke, etc. And then Reno took over his facebook page in which they basically shared lies and manipulations. I repeatedly asked myself, wouldn’t this man achieve the same opinion moulding by simply solving the problems that produce those opinions and then putting the evidence out for all to see?
          Reno then went further to spend millions of public funds to recruit an army of youths whose job description is to write online and those whose job is to challenge any critical view of Jonathan by either dismissing the person, attacking him or her, or trying to discredit the person, even when all the evidence weighs against the government on the issue.

    • emeka

      Poooint

  • ModyHH

    Buhari is quick to show his letter of invitation by a Washington-based NGO, why can’t he with the same sense of urgency show his school certificate? I am beginning to believe that Buhari has no school certificate after all but had managed to crook his way through the Army and through several Presidential contests by capitalising on the same Nigerian very corrupt system he would like the world to believe he wants to fight.

    • taewo

        Wähala, the guy who claims to live in Germany but cannot speak or write a single correct German.How you dey? So today you are off duty in the day to work in the night? In which kitchen are you now helping out? Bros, do they now allow you to make salat for the white people or are you still on Hartz IV? Manage it sha, at least you can afford a smartphone in Germany.

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          The guy is an old “Aduro” loitering around Germany without any future at home !

          • ModyHH

            Unfortunately, there are many of them here who, like Buhari, cannot point to any certificate of qualification. Unlike Buhari who has managed to crook his way through the Nigerian stystem without basic education, many of our brothers here cannot make it in a knowledge-based economy like Germany without training. They resort to minal jobs or drift into criminality. The frustration is high, unfortunately.

    • Bidemi Lukman

      Some Nigerians will continued to be reasoned for. The Guy sworn an affidavit that the Military under IBB ransacked his house and carted away his documents including the credentials while he was indetention. IBB put him under detention for 3yrs. That is why he said the certificates are with the Millitary. If you want him to show you certificate, you may propably be expecting him to show you “oluwole” (fake certificates)

      • Uwadiegwu

        The evil man put people away for longer periods, even those declared innocent by courts (eg Michael Ajasin, Ambrose Alli). Some died because of Bokohari’s wickedness and tribalism, but you want me to be shedding tears because his house was ransacked. The military has asked him to come and get copies of whatever certificates he has in his file. Or let him go to his old school and get a certified statement of result if he had one. You can be fooled but there are millions of Nigerians who refused to be fooled. Do not forget that the last date to change anything in relation with the presidential election was December 30, 2014. Officially, APC has no valid candidate in this race.

        • UNAFFECTED

          • Emeka

            Lol

      • ModyHH

        If IBB carted away his documents, did he also cart away the schools Buhari attended and the WAEC that issued his certificate? Enough of fooling Nigerians, Sir!

        • Bidemi Lukman

          Bros, neither the Court asked him to go to his school b4 giving him affidavit nor INEC b4 accepting the affidavit as a valid document in place of his credentials. So, why did he need to go to WAEC or his schools? He has been using this in the previous 3 elections and no dust was raised. Why now?

          INEC has repetedly said those agrieved about Buhari’s credentials should go to court. If the affidavit is not valid, INEC would have disqualified him.

          OK, if he should go to his school, on whose request. INEC or Court?

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    This think-tank is well known for supporting the northern oligarchy in their control of oil blocs in Nigeria. Buhari’s main reason for travelling is his health,this is a cover up . The “lecture” is arranged to cover up his inadequacies and distract Nigerians who are demanding the following :

    1. BIRTH CERTIFICATE .

    2. MEDICAL CERTIFICATE.

    3. FIRST SCHOOL LEAVING CERTIFICATE.

    4. O’LEVEL CERTIFICATE .

    A coup plotter who derailed democratic process in the past through the force of arms is today desperately trying to disguise as a democrat. A military tyrant who executed Nigerians through retro-active laws and enacted draconian anti-press degrees,imprisoned press men and closed media houses is today trying to jump around Washington as a democrat . A brutal dictator who kidnapped an exile in a botched illegal attempt to bring him back to Nigeria from the UK is today parading himself in the corridors of Washington as a democrat ……..WONDERS WILL NEVER END !!

    Eat your heart out Dumbo… the World is already dealing with the new C-in-C.
    I’m sure Dumbo is sulking wherever he is and reading this letter now that it has become clear the Americans have sidelined him and invited his rival to an “int’l campaign rally” in DC. I bet he’s swallowing greedy gulps of ogogoro and wondering how Buhari will paint his corrupt and inept Govt. to the Americans, and the advise and promises of support he will receive in return on how to deal squarely with the Otuoke drunk should he misbehave after losing the elections. This is no ordinary lecture, the “off-the-records” talks with policy makers, business moguls and Naijas in diaspora are strategic meetings on contingency plans and how to contain Aborigines who may be nursing ideas about fermenting trouble after FeBuhari. Me-sef advise Gen. Buhari to charter a Boeing 747 and load it full of senior APC chieftain, well-wishers and a few “sweepers” with brooms singing, a ti de o! Show dem Yanks the real and true face of honest Nigerians, unlike Dumbo’s annual entourage of hangers-on to the UN Gen. Assembly. Hahaha chei! President-in-waiting is going to God’s own country to learn about Change We Can Believe In from Obama himself… Glory, Glory, Alleluia! Sai Buhari, Alleluia!

    It is even more ludicrous that the APC candidate can put up such trifling excuse in the middle of critical electioneering campaign.
    Would the US candidate go to a non-important talk conference in the middle of the US electioneering campaign.

    We all know this a belated cover-up, a medical trip is what it is…..Buhari should come clean…as for me he is HUMAN and could be sick.
    If he is sick, he could ask the physician to come to Nigeria and do the checks in a good Nigeria Hospital like Reddington lagos.

    Lastly, if he is going abroad for Medical trip and promises to ban all medical trip with is 100 days covenant with Nigeria, then it is safe to say that GMB is a two-face candidate which cannot be trusted with his electoral promise.

    • Action_Nigeria

      I wish you had read what Prof Wole Soyinka had to say about Buhari : Prof Wole Soyinka said that he does not believe anything that emanates from Buhari or anything that Buhari says anymore. …….

      CERTIFICATE SCANDAL REVEALS BUHARI AS A DISHONEST MAN THAT LACKS PERSONAL INTEGRITY

      All along the APC and most Nigerians have always presented Buhari as an honest man with nothing to hide.

      But the certificate scandal has revealed that Buhari is an extremely dishonest man who bluntly will not come clean and tell Nigerians the truth .. no matter what.

      I really do not believe anything that emanates from Buhari or anything that Buhari says anymore.

        Obama went on visit 18 days to election day? Do you equate Obama’s tour of Europe with Bokohari’s invitation by one Washington DC-based NGO? An invitation that is open to Nigerian civil society leaders, government officials etc? Inferiority complex at work.

        My friend google will show you that US and other countries allow alien voting system.
        So canvassing for vote then in UK, France and others will be in order as it is part of electioneering.
        Nigeria do not allow alien votes. So it makes no sense.
        He can show is political sagacity with policies and can-do spirit after the elections and not before.

  • Ahmed

    GMB giving lecture in the USA is like saying the Obama has begun teaching Hausa in an Almajiri school. How many lectures has GMB ever given in Nigeria speaking English? How many times has he been a keynote speaker at any event where intellectuals gather? This is a ruse. Most of the time, GMB speaks in Hausa to his northern followers and his English is slurred. Even his radio interviews are granted in Hausa. Where he speaks English, he is bound to goof as he is gaffe prone and unable to make intelligent contributions where required. While I don’t think he is going for a medical trip, I find it rather strange that GMB is giving a lecture in the U.S on a topic like this where he has never made any reasonable contribution on the topic back home. It is all a campaign arrangement to boost his intellectual bankruptcy. Osinbade will prepare him the speech and he will go and read it but everyone will be convinced: “I am not as intelligent as the speech I just read.”

    • blueeyedkitten

    Birth certificate

    Medical certificate

    First school leaving certificate

    O’levels certificate

    This is usual practice in advanced democracy to invite a front runner in an election to lay proper groundwork for future cooperation. At least they knew they will be dealing with His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari from May 29th 2015 so this invitation is in order. He will be visiting the UK very soon. All western countries have given up on Dr Jonathan, they know he cannot win his ward let alone a national election. And those of you doubting his invitation, it was attached why not read it and if in doubt call them. Are you this lazy? you cannot even justify the monies you are receiving from Mr Jonathan.

    • Isi Agwo

      Do not read too much into this invitation because the CSIS Nigeria Forum, according to the organization, is “Supported by the Ford Foundation, the series will bring Nigerian officials, civil society activists, and opinion leaders to Washington, D.C. to engage with U.S. policymakers and Africa experts on how best to ensure that Nigeria’s upcoming elections are peaceful, credible, and free.” However, given Bokohari’s sham international profile, every little international invitation helps.

    “Mr. Buhari is only honouring an invitation by the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies [CSIS].”
    Yet PDP and Jonathan are busy spreading their sickness and death messages on Buhari’s proposed USA trip! You can now see that the name Buhari has become a TERROR in the camp of PDP and the Presidency?

  • Hmmm

    For 50 years, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) has developed practical solutions to the world’s greatest challenges. As we celebrate this milestone, CSIS scholars continue to provide strategic insights and bipartisan policy solutions to help decisionmakers chart a course toward a better world.

    CSIS is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. The Center’s 220 full-time staff and large network of affiliated scholars conduct research and analysis and develop policy initiatives that look to the future and anticipate change.

    Since 1962, CSIS has been dedicated to finding ways to sustain American prominence and prosperity as a force for good in the world. After 50 years, CSIS has become one of the world’s preeminent international policy institutions focused on defense and security; regional stability; and transnational challenges ranging from energy and climate to global development and economic integration.

    Former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn has chaired the CSIS Board of Trustees since 1999. John J. Hamre became the Center’s president and chief executive officer in April 2000. CSIS was founded by David M. Abshire and Admiral Arleigh Burke.

      The Nigeria government does not intrude into the elections of friendly nations either !!

    It will never change anything if Jonathan knows how to use his power as C in C, I have said it that Jonathan might be rigged out by Jega if he fails to remove INEC Chairman Atahiru Jega but Jonathan kept silent and he will see that every Northern muslim stands for north even when Buhari is not qualified to contest due to his inability to produce his certificate.

    • amazing2012

      Oh now Attahiru Jega is not to be trusted !! When the same Jega credibly announce that jonathan won last election why you did not say it’s rigging ?

      • Goodguy

        Didn’t you see what he has been doing since last year? He Attempted to create a bogus pulling boot in the north even in the war ravaged North East until peoples outrage which made him to give up that Idea, now Certificate saga, but let me tell if that were to be Jonathan you idiiots would not have taken it lightly.

    GMB giving lecture in the USA is like saying the Obama has begun
    teaching Hausa in an Almajiri school. How many lectures has GMB ever
    given in Nigeria speaking English? How many times has he been a keynote
    speaker at any event where intellectuals gather? This is a ruse. Most of
    the time, GMB speaks in Hausa to his northern followers and his English
    is slurred. Even his radio interviews are granted in Hausa. Where he
    speaks English, he is bound to goof as he is gaffe prone and unable to
    make intelligent contributions where required. While I don’t think he is
    going for a medical trip, I find it rather strange that GMB is giving a
    lecture in the U.S on a topic like this where he has never made any
    reasonable contribution on the topic back home. It is all a campaign
    arrangement to boost his intellectual bankruptcy. Osinbade will prepare
    him the speech and he will go and read it but everyone will be
    convinced: “I am not as intelligent as the speech I just read.”

    • Dr. Kay

      Bad belle go kill you oh ,ha ha ha ha , you are soo jealous, incensed and angry that someone without certificate(according to PDP) should be invited to such a prestigious event to give a lecture and your oga the “plagiarized PhD holder” is not even given a call, and to put salt into your already gaping angry wound , he will be meeting with highbrow personalities of high calibre in the diaspora and US politics.

      Good point indeed!!! But of the two gaffers, GEJ and Buhari, I will still choose buhari. GEJ said in UK in November that bcos boko haram has not attacked or killed Nigerians in one week, therefore, Nigeria is winning the war against terror. A one week lapse was enough for our C-in-C to declare victory before an audience of British MPs. Though buhari/bokohari accent and some other areas may be weak, he will still bring a much higher level of discipline and fiscal responsibility to our institutions than what is currently obtainable under Mr. clueless ebele jonothing.

  • endingNaija

    I have the following observations especially for we CHANGE VESSELS-(i) Please note that the online media campaign of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Team is coordinated from several angles. Beside those who are sponsored by some ministers and those who are children of some of the ministers who are afraid of job loss and personal family loss and conveniences from corruption (such as flying first class when they travel) – when Jonathan loses(these children are based mainly abroad), the other official coordinators are Femi Fanikayode/Reno Wendel Omokri/Reuben Abati/Doyin Okugbe. (ii) The Jonathan Campaign team from these sources I have mentioned have added NEW ONLINE NAMES to their traditional names-so do not be confused-stay focus on the CHANGE MESSAGE which are about ISSUES and LACK of ACHIEVEMENT of Mr. Jonathan FOR SIX YEARS. This election is a referendum on Mr. Jonathan’s lack of achievement for SIX YEARS. (iii) We are CHANGE AGENTS AND VESSELS OF CHANGE. So? We are not afraid. We are winning because our cause is of God Almighty and it is about saving and rescuing Nigeria from the jaws of DEATH and CORRUPTION as represented by SIX YEARS of MISRULE by Mr. Jonathan. The Global Community know this. So? Do not be provoked. Do not provoke. Stay Calm and laugh and smile for Jesus always because we are winning. Why do we want to provoke when we are winning? No reason. (iv) Go Back to the streets, the buses-like Mr. Osinbajo, the Vice presidential candidate to Mr. Buhari- is doing, your communities, the grassroots , your neighbors, your families, your friends, your universities-preach the Gospel of CHANGE with joy, smiles and laughter WITHOUT BITTERNESS. WALK FOR CHANGE with smiles and joy. Why? This is of God-period. Why will be angry when it is of God. Cant you all see the way the leader and main vessel of CHANGE -Buhari -dismisses the wild allegations against him? Follow him. Follow his PEACEFUL and RELAXED example-that is the leader! Follow the path finder of CHANGE, the one on whose shoulder our living Jesus has placed the enormous task of leading us out of SIX YEARS of darkness of Mr. Jonathan(v) Be PEACEFUL. This is important for us. (vi) Be watchful. On the day of election, WATCH your votes PEACEFULLY. A thug like Ayo Fayose will provoke-DO NOT REPLY. Smile for Jesus. Shout halleluyah for our God has delivered us. If God endows you with a beautiful voice, and you can sing burst into song. If you can dance, DANCE for CHANGE. Our God , our saviour is a joyous God, a loving and peaceful God. We will use our votes, the song of love, unity and peace to exit Mr. Jonathan back to Otuoke from where he came-Say halleluyah and FOCUS ON THE ISSUES. We are running a campaign on issues. We are running on an anti-corruption platform. Sai Buhari, Shout Halleluyah, Sai Change oyoyo!!! God has delivered us from SIX YEARS OF DARKNESS but there is work to be done-pray and campaign without season-Sai Buhari-Febuhari 14th 2015 IS IT! We are One people, one country, under the protection of one and same God! Sai Buhari oyoyo! Sai Change. Febuhari 14th 2015 here we come!!! Peace, Love and Unity always!

      I think so.I also think that Buhari has already lost the election before it is held! The battle ground for the presidency of this nearly 200 million people is in Nigeria, not the USA. Going to America now for an average Nigerian who has been following the goings on between Nigeria and the US is a big minus for Mr Buhari; that could be a good reason Nigerians may find him unelectable.The west especially America,has been nonchalant towards this West African country. Nigerians are a very proud people, north or south.They may have their peculiar problems like anyone else; they don’t want foreign influence in their elections. Buhari should learn from Abiola’s visit to the US Congress, how well did it serve the good late Abiola?Meanwhile, Buhari’s entourage should include Atiku,let us test his popularity here.

    Breaking News:

    3,000 Protesters storm Abuja streets over Buhari’s certificates

    “Youths, including men and women numbering over 3,000 have
    given one week ultimatum to the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive
    Congress (APC), Gen. Mohammadu Bhuari (rtd) to table his certificates before
    the Independent National Electoral Commission or they will go to court.

    They were led by the National Coordinator of Coalition of
    Nigerian Youth for Good Governance, Godwin Meliga and a female activist,
    Princess Amarachi Nlumanze. The protesters, who carried placard with various
    inscriptions; ‘Nigeria is bigger than one man’, ‘Mr Integrity show your

    urged Bhuari to comply with the electoral laws.”

  • Brandon Landry

    WHY PDP HAS LAUNCHED A MASSIVE HATE CAMPAIGN AGAINST BUHARI.

    -Buhari is extremely disciplined and incorruptible. He will purge out corruption.
    -Buhari is the only ex head of state that rejected the monthly N23 million naira pension paid to all ex heads of state. He collects only N2.3 million naira (just 10%) because he believes N23 million naira a month per person is a waste of Nigeria’s resources.
    -Buhari is the only Nigerian government official known to regularly return the unspent portion of his travel allowance (estacode) back into the Nigerian treasury every time he returned into the country from official overseas travels.
    -He has no house or land in Abuja or anywhere else except a humble 1-storey family house in Kaduna. This is unprecedented in Nigeria for a past head of state, ex PTF chairman and past head of NNPC.
    -He has no filling station or oil rig – unprecedented for a past petroleum minister
    -He collected no salary as PTF chairman – unprecedented for a Nigerian
    -He slashed the number of muslim pilgrims by 50% – Unprecedented for a muslim head of state.
    -Buhari constructed ALL Nigeria’s refineries
    -He constructed over 3200 km of Nigeria’s petroleum pipelines
    -He snuffed out the Maitatsine insurgency with haste and alacrity.
    -When he was GOC under Shagari and Chad made the mistake of launching an incursion into Nigerian territory, Buhari mobilized his forces and launched a blitzkrieg counter offensive against the Chadian invaders. He pursued them out of Nigeria’s territory all the way deep into Chad. It took the desperate intervention of Shagari and the then Chief of Army staff to stop him from over running Chad completely. This man is a no nonsense nationalist.
    -He kept the Naira stable at 1:1 to the British pound during his government
    -He discovered Professor Dora Akunyili and recommended her for NDLEA.

    HEAR WHAT PROMINENT NIGERIANS SAY OF HIM…….

    “The army, after toppling our democratic regime had no option but to install Buhari as head of state so as to avoid credibility problems, especially in the sight of the international community, because of his being an epitome of integrity.”
    – SHAGARI.

    “All what PDP is saying of Buhari as being a fundamentalist are mere hot lies. They are just fearful “
    – OBJ

    “General Muhammadu Buhari, as a member of the Supreme Military Council and as Head of NNPC was by nature taciturn and introvert. But he took any work that was given to him very seriously. He is as reliable as he is hardworking and honest, his path of moral probity and rectitude incorruptible”
    – President Olusegun Obasanjo , in his book, “Not My Will”.

    “Buhari is a big brother and a father who desires nothing more in life and for the nation other than good. So, I fear no harm from him.“
    – LATE SHEHU MUSA YAR‘ADUA.

    “Buhari is honest and sincere in all his conduct that perhaps, only very few Nigerians can match in integrity.“
    –GEN. ABDULSALAM ABUBAKAR

    “Gen. Muhammadu Buhari is a true patriot, respected former head of state and elder statesman and a nationalist”
    -PRESIDENT JONATHAN.

    “I have realized our collective mistake in overthrowing you. Please, come and do what is best known about you…patriotic service to the nation.“
    –LATE GEN. SANI ABACHA (PTF inaugural speech).

    “If Buhari quits the PTF job as he promises and as we know him to mean his words, I support the idea of scrapping PTF as no one else can do the job as he can”
    –IBB

    “I respect Buhari. He was my Boss. He is an honorable man. And I can say this anywhere”
    -General Ibrahim Babangida.

    “As a member PDP Board of Trustees, I decided personally to donate N5,000,000 to Buhari‘s campaign organization because of my firm belief in his ability to right all the nation wrongs”
    -ALH. ISIYAKU IBRAHIM.

    “Buhari is as clean as this book I am holding”
    -ALHAJI ISIYAKU IBRAHIM, member, PDP Board of Trustees at a Book launch in Kaduna

    “The issue of Gen. The Buhari‘s presidency is always being derided by the criminals who looted the nation to stupor by embarking upon a campaign of calumny so as to smear his name with a view to denying Nigerians a leader who can improve their lot“
    –PROF. DAVID WEST.

    “If the truth must be told, Buhari remains the only real threat to PDP whether he runs for the presidency or not due to his wider followership among the masses“
    -SEN. MAKARFI.

    Buhari, on why he did not promote himself General, retiring with the rank of a Major-General:

    “It was the conviction of our regime that, being the Head of State and Commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces, does not mean that you are the overall General. My ultimate goal as at then was to ensure integrity, justice, equity, accountability and transparency in the system. That was why I did away with unnecessarily promoting myself to General.” At the launching of two books: “Nigerian Military in Politics: 1966-2011 and Politics of Transition to Civil Rule in Nigeria” in Zaria, Kaduna State, 5th July 2013.

    “Truth, like cork, cannot sink. It cannot be sunk. It always floats. Time will vindicate General Buhari”
    -Professor Tam David-West, Buhari’s minister of petroleum and energy.

    “After Buhari came out of detention, he told Babangida to tell the world about his corruption.The records are there. The same thing happened with the PTF. He told Obasanjo to publish the report of the panel, but Obasanjo could not publish it because it was a certificate of honour for Buhari. If that Haroun’s report had any page in it that indicted Buhari, Obasanjo would have used that to disqualify Buhari from contesting against him. Buhari is clean. He is not corrupt. To show how Buhari loves Nigeria, he doesn’t like spending Nigerian money frivolously. When he overthrew Shehu Shagari, Buhari never changed any chair or curtain in Dodan Barracks. Buhari used what Shagari was using until he left. As minister, our total pocket money under Buhari was N200 per month. You could spend less than N200 without accounting for it, but anything above N200, you must account for it. When he increased the money to N250, we clapped for him at the executive council. Now, as a former governor of the defunct north- eastern state, former minister of petroleum, former head of state, former executive chairman of PTF, Buhari has no house in Abuja. If he goes to Abuja, he stays in a private hotel. He has no house either uphill, hilltop or downhill, apart from his house in Kaduna.”
    -Professor Tam David-West, Buhari’s minister of petroleum and energy.

    -Buhari is a very likeable and honest person. You can always know where you stand with him on any issues, he is very straightforward. He is a man who adheres to principle.
    -General DOMKAT BALI

Imam, may Allah protect you, get healed fast and come home to face the final defeat so that we will not be talking about you the rest of the year.

    I know there will be no shortage of fasting and prayers for our ailing Imam. Similarly, we fasted and prayed hard for Musa, although our prayers did not do him any good, Allah still called him home. Whatever be the case, Imam, do your best in the United States, take you pills diligently. If Allah says you will come home alive to face defeat, please do so, but if Allah calls you home as he did to Musa, be courageous. We know you have done what you had do on earth whether good or bad.

    On Buhari ceritificate:

    I was watching Rivers state APC Guber campaign live of Channel TV mesmerised by the slogan MR PRESIDENT MY PRESIDENT BUHARI BUHARI MY GOVERNOR MY GOVERNOR DAKUKU DAKUKU. I just saw this headline and felt
    duty bound to shut this morons up onece and for all. Being a highly formally educated person myself with a doctorate in engineering, and masters in law, public and project management and Business adminstration, and now a dutiful student of native intelligence, I think I am very qualify to make this submission.

    Get the fact right, these cabals will never go down tamely not with the Mossad involvement. PDP is gone for good no doubt. I want to refer the readers to the story of probably the MOST POPULAR LEADER of his time described by President
    Obama as the MOST POPULAR PRESIDENT, popular and competent.

    The man is LUIZ Inácio Lula da SILVA. A SHOE SHINER that become president of Brazil. I was chanced to be on this man team that visited South Africa. He opined then that a President that will not perform better has no business seeking second term, refering to Jacob Zuma of South Africa bid then.

    It will be quiet interesting to read about Lula, a man that change the fortune of Brazil for good. Lula first ran for governor of
    the state of São Paulo in 1982 and LOST. He contested TWICE and FAILED for the presidency until 2002, when he decisively defeated José Serra for the presidency.

    Lula had essentially LITTLE formal education. He quit school in PRIMARY 2!!!! Even then, only a buffon will compare the competencies and charisma of leaders like Tafawa Balewa, Aminu Kano with Jonadaft a PhD. Buhari HAS FAR ABOVE A
    SCHOOL CERTIFICATE EDUCATION. Some on legality point, he is eminently qualified having met the requirement.

    SO GUYS LETS GET BACK TO ISSUE WHO IS BETTER FOR NIGERIA NOW.

      Thanks for the Tales By Moonlight.

It is like you telling whatever university you attended that they have to set aside the rules and procedures for a PhD Viva because you’re kind of special and born in a special part of the Earth, where the rules are bent in your favour – always. Let Bokohari go and enjoy the millions we pay him as pension, although he was head of state because he seized power by force.

        Ask your elders of his achievements when he took power by force and the reason for taking over. Please, let them tell you the truth nothing but the truth. If truly Nigeria is your family business am sure your elders will bring Buhari by force if presented along side your phd jonathan to manage the affairs. Be wise and considerate not only about the benefits your family gets but also future of Nigeria and generations yet not born.

      • Progress

        I will never, I repeat never, encourage or support travesty of the law. The rule of law must at all time be sacrosanct.

        The problem is that PDPigs and their lackeys noises can not be equated to the laws of the land. U cannnot accuse and be the judge at the same time. Worse still, nothing is beyond the NEST OF KILLERS.

        If you have proofs, you know where to go, going to the PUBLIC COURT is actaully a DENIGRATION OF RULE OF LAW. Which is what Fayose, FFK, JonaDaft and the rest are doing. IT CAN ONLY MEAN THERE IS NO CASE.

          Thank you sir, we will not disappoint you guys, the future of my children and your children depend on the coming election and we cant wait for our people to start returning home. Nigeria is the hope of Africa and by God’s grace the building of Africa hope JUST BEGAN. Change is on the way.

      May u live long to see the better Nigeria we all dream of friend!

    • Debo

      This is by far the most intelligent submission of the lot, thank you sir. But before we proceed, can you share your opinion on the perjury case. Did LUIZ Inácio Lula da SILVA also submit an affidavit claiming that he has completed secondary school education given the fact that he quit school in primary 2?

      • Debo

        please endeavour to keep the GEJ’s performance and politics angle out of this, because that is not what this is about for me. i am just interested in knowing what is right.

        • atari d Lion

          Mr Debo.the problem of us Nigerians is, we dont research, research and research..pls try and read the NIGERIAN CONSTITUTION SECTION 318 1999,( as amended)..in relation to this baseless certificate issue…i cant be bothered to type it out, make an effort to inform yourself.. WAEC or school cert as nothing to do with running for President as long as you have obtained an equivalent or higher…is a 4 star Nigerian Army General (WITH BATTLEFIELD EXPERIENCE) less than a Gradute?…GMBs Diploma in Strateic Studies from US Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania in 1980, alone nullifys this distraction…..Pls time to activate a higher state of conciousness with cognitive analysis..GMB OR JONA , who is a better leader??. I rest my case

          • Debo

            With all due respect, I was not referring to you. No wonder you goofed.

          • Debo

            You have only refused to see this the way it is rather than the way you want to see it. If you have even researched a little bit, you would have realised that the issue at stake here is perjury and not minimum requirement for election. Nobody forced him to decalre WASC but since he has done so, he has to back it up with proof. That is the real issue – practise what you preach.

      • Progress

        If a case of perjury is established I will be the first to denounce the person involved. In the case of Buhari, I promise you this is not the case. If I am wrong, I will apologise and campaign for the law to take its course.

  • Alcindo Satori

    All we are saaaaayyiiinngggg, show us your certificate!!!!!!! Come this FAILBUHARI 2015. Even the Nigerian Army has said it is not in possession of the original or photocopies of the credentials of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari. It said at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday that it had a letter from the Principal of Buhari’s secondary school, dated 1961, recommending him for enlistment into the military school. Hey! Alarm don really blow this time! Hehehehehehehehehehehe!!!!!!!!!!!

    Details later…

    • M Bukar

      I think the United States has already declared him (Buhari) a president elect. I am sure you were not born when he and late General Idiagbon displayed leadership by example, era of peace and overhaul, discipline and order. For nearly six years Jonathan has been at the helm of affairs of this great nation. Unfortunately, he will go in history as the worse president of Nigeria, worse commander who fail to command and protect the territory of his country, the worse religious bigot who steals and shields corruption with impunity, the worse leader who fail to utilise the opportunity presented to him on a platter of gold. Incumbent governments vying for re-election all over the world use their achievements during re-election campaign rather than gathering clergy men and threatening them or castigating age, religious affiliation or regions of their opponents. Thank God you did not say Buhari is thief, corrupt or incapable of turning around Nigeria’s fortunes.

      • endingNaija

        Tasty and Crispy!!! God Bless. Sai Buhari oyoyo!!! Sai Change oyoyo!!!

  • Gaskiya

    @ Otile!! Why do you give your hypocritical prayers to GMB. Why don’t you keep yourself busy praying for Jonathan and PDP? Jonathan and PDP urgently need your prayers considering the imminent defeat they are going to suffer next month.

    Most Nigerians know that Jonathan and his supporters are so much worried about the loss of their major supporters which was a consequence of his misrule and cluelessness.

    As for GMB’s health, the truth of the matter is that, his health must be quite good, considering the degree of stress he has been subjected to so far in the campaign without any sign of weakness or sickness. For your information, majority of these retired generals are much more healthy than people like you and Jonathan, because their body must have been very healthy to have endured the kind of rigours of military training they underwent. Another advantage, GMB has is his genetic makeup which make a naturally slim person. So he is more likely to have less burden of atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, diabetes mellitus which are all related to obesity.

    • endingNaija

      Oh my God Gasikiya, why are you wasting precious intellectual time with these people? Please ignore them and shout haleluya with me as i sing with joy of the Lord-Sai Buhari oyoyo!!! One more time as we ignore Otile -Sai Change oyoyo!!! Let us shout one more time as we ignore Reno Omokri, Sai Buhari oyoyo!!! On Febuhari 14 2015 we stand.
      One people, One country, under the same joyous God- God Bless you and your family- Gaskiya-but keep your PVC very well oooo!. Ignore these people and just sing and dance for our country-Nigeria- that is bouncing back again under the leadership of the vessel of Change-the Leader, the Wise One-Buhari on whose shoulder History and God have placed this change.
      Peace Love and Unity to our country as we celebrate Sai Buhari oyoyo on Febuhari 14th 2015!!!

      • Leslie

        I’m sweating so much from dancing and singing for change that has already happened. The date don’t matter no more.God bless Nigeria.

  • Gaskiya

    Those paid PDP thugs disturbing us about certificate have run short of ideas to campaign for Jonathan and therefore resorted to this stupidity. Prof Jega can not disqualify anybody because he also loves to live and move freely in Nigeria. So if you think Prof Jega will disqualify GMB for Jonathan, you are kidding. Nigerians are wise now and don’t dare try to tell us non-sense. We are fed up with your rascality.
    For your information, more than half of current Buhari’s supporters were Jonathan supporters few years and months ago. It was the way Jonathan treated Nigerians and Nigeria that led to this nightmare for him and his diehard supporters. Even if APC decides not to run in the coming election, Jonathan can not rule Nigeria beyond May 2015. He must hand over power to someone else.

    • Otile

      But where is the WASC certificate Imam once claimed to have? Why is he not making the same bogus claim again? Affidavits are no substitute for WASC. Officially, the Army said they haven’t seen any of the imaginary school certificates Imam claimed to have lodged with them.

      It is shameful that a man aspiring to go through electoral process in this day age is counting of false affidavit in lieu of genuine certificate. This is the height of corruption. APC founded on corruption will stand by him till the end. But this kind of corrupt practice will not work for him again.

      This is a scandal.

      • Leslie

        Anything that comes from a court of law,evev if it’s an affidavit, is legally binding.So try to take heart.There is nothing you PDP apologists can do about it.And as for your last sentence, GEJ is the embodiment of corruption,something Buhari forbids.

        • Debo

          So tell me the meaning of lying under oath and perjury.

  • excel

    Why some people where busy with hypocrites looking for certificate GMB is getting honour from home and abroad. GMB health can never be question even a man at is 30s will have take a rest by now, with the kind of stress GMB has pass through in recent weeks. CHANGE YES YES is POSSIBLE, Let vote out clueless gej/pdp and make Nigeria a GREAT place. Vote GMB vote for CHANGE

  • Gaskiya

    PDP is gone and we will make sure it is dismantled into its individual components and thrown into Atlantic Ocean. We will not bury it on Nigerian soil.
    Please vote APC.

  • Dankasa

    Tell them ooO! Mr. excel. Certificate or no Certificate GMB is going be sworn in as our next President comes May, 2015. Lets have breathing space, the few run our generations down for decades yet some blindfolded guys are looking at this change in a different way. CHANGEEEEEEEE

  • Rommel

    Ichabod is the new name for president Jonathan

  • Guguru

    Great news.

  • Ayodele Ohakim

    There’s so much misinformation surrounding Buhari’s health that I wouldn’t be sure of anything concerning it. One element, though, remains intact, in the fact that he is a relic of the past that has no business in being unearthed a 4th time given his past as a dictator and human right abuser.

  • Save Nigeria Father

    Those clamoring for better Nigeria under the powers that be are dreaming and the earlier we avoid this avoidable mistake, the better. The greatest opposition we have today in Nigeria is GEJ and we need a strong opposition like this to move this country forward. Why have they kept dump over the issues of 2000 massacre at Baga and few killings at Paris is a major issue. The global oil price fall is not unconnected with huge supply of stolen oil to the world market which is to the interest of the powers that be in exchange for weapons used in killing our brothers and sisters and no weapon supply to our Federal Government to counter the agent of the master whose mission is to steal, to kill and to destroy. But the son of man come that they might have live and have it abundantly. Might if only Nigerians will avoid this grave mistake for nothing good comes from the Devil. I would have prefer a government led by GEJ and GMB but the powers that be have interest in Osinbajo not Buhari. Though I am not perturbed because the keeper of Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep for I am only witnessing deep calling unto deep at the thunder of His caterlaths. And the decampers and defectors became a citing reference as we forgot that they are the corruption machine. What Nigerians should know if they have really awaken from this prolonged slumber is that whoever is endorsed by the global cabal that sup with their master the prince of this world is not good for Nigeria. Nigeria is the spiritual Israel according to the Bible where also their Lord was crucified and he was crucified from the foundation of the world.

  • Machie

    Buhari’s age and health are certainly matters to be taken seriously by the voters. After all, Nigeria needs a strong and healthy President who will be able serve his difficult future term without the threat of health problems. At 72, this seems unlikely for Buhari. While he may be officially travelling to the US to participate in the event and mingle with US policy makers in the hope that their support and his publicity will make him a more credible candidate in Nigeria, this is unlikely to change the minds of so many who were alive during his failed military rule and witnessed his inability to govern.

    • Dene emma

      What i expect to hear from someone like you, is that you need a tug which suit your description of a strong and healthy president, as he is not going there to wrestle,

  • Juliet Okoro

    Buhari that will go to the US and agreed with the US in some terms on how to govern Nigeria that will be used as a stooge that doesn’t have his own say and Jonathan that refused to be influenced by the US on their selfish interest and detriment of Nigeria as a whole, who between this two is capable of being our president

  • Chuckwuebuka Alavavite

    Just a few days after Goldman Sachs called voters to vote for Buhari, he is going to the US. Well here is some insight on who paid for his campaign. It also goes to show that many foreign powers want ton replace President Jonathan by someone more
    compliant. Why not let the Nigerians decide? I thought colonialism was over.

  • chioma okeke

    It is about time Nigerians stated taking decisions on their own without inviting foreign bodies. Since! Buhari can’t afford to take a national decision on his ow without the help of Goldman Sachs, that’s more reason he should step aside for the capable ones to avoid the repetition of colonization or being subjected to the whites in a nearby future.

  • Akinfenwa Mikel

    I would rather him go to the US for his health! Nigerians need to start taking matters into their own hands than to go back to the colonial system. Our country is big and successful enough to fend for ourselves, as GEJ has proven with his economic and infrastructure improvements during his presidency. Buhari leaving in the middle of the presidential campaign to court favor with American billionaires is not going to help anything in the long run, but just put Africa’s big country in more debt to them.
