Supreme Court affirms Fayose’s election, dismisses APC’s suit

Governor Ayo Fayose

The Supreme Court has affirmed the election of Ayo Fayose as the governor of Ekiti State, dismissing a suit that sought to nullify the 2014 polls.

Mr. Fayose’s election was challenged by the All Progressives Congress, APC, whose candidate in the election, Kayode Fayemi, lost to Mr. Fayose.

The governor is currently facing an attempt by state lawmakers to impeach him.

Ahead of the Supreme Court ruling, Mr. Fayose, in a state-wide broadcast on Monday asked the people of the state to maintain the peace and pursue their businesses and lawful duties normally.

He credited the success of his Peoples Democratic Party in Saturday’s House of Assembly election to Ekiti residents and thanked them accordingly.

Mr. Fayose said the victory confirmed that he had the genuine support of the people.

The governor said he would be vindicated at the end of the day and “triumph over whatever plot being hatched to truncate,” his tenure.

‎The APC had petitioned the Ekiti Governorship Election Tribunal challenging the victory of Mr. Fayose in the governorship election.

The Tribunal, on December 19, 2014, upheld Mr. Fayose’s victory and dismissed the APC’s petition for “lack of merit”.

Dissatisfied with the verdict, the APC went to the Court of Appeal, on the grounds that Mr. Fayose was not eligible to contest the governorship election since he had been impeached on October 16, 2006 during his first tenure as governor.

The APC also alleged that the governor forged his academic credentials and breached the Code of Conduct rules.

On February 16, a five-member Appeal Court panel, led by Justice Abdul Aboki, upheld the judgment of the Election Tribunal and affirmed Mr. Fayose as winner of the June 21, 2014 poll.

The Appeal Court, however, upheld APC’s complaints that the military was used to harass and intimidate its supporters and leaders during the polls.

The APC, not satisfied with the judgment, went to the Supreme Court.

The court on Tuesday upheld Mr. Fayose’s election, the News Agency of Nigeria reported.

Details of the ruling are yet unclear.

    LAST Sunday’s visit of the United States Ambassador to Nigeria to the International Conference Centre, in Abuja, where the collation of results for the 2015 Presidential election was taking place, was a brazen breach of diplomatic protocol. It was a visit that should be condemned for what it represents: an undue interference in a sensitive and important internal affair of this country.

    James Entwistle, while at the ICC, was quoted as saying that the Permanent Voter Card employed in Nigeria’s 2015 elections, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, was of higher technological value than the one in use in his home state of Virginia in the US. “I think we need to come and study it so that we can use it in my country,” he said. Although seemingly well-intentioned and commendable on its face value, that statement, to say the least, was also patronising.

        Action Nigeria, you seem to have so many sleepless nights about President Buhahari’s credentials. let me me tell you something, nothing will happen on the 22nd except that the case would be thrown out for lack of merit. The only reason pdp and their corrupt judges adjourned the case then was cos It would have overblown Buhari’s popularity. And in any case Buhari is not paying anybody to defend him, lawyers are rolling over themselves to offer their servicrs free of charge. Above all, visit part iv,section 318 of the 1999 constitution, the likes of you will see that Buhari is over qualified to be the president of Nigeria. what we want right now is performance and not certificates. May 29th is a reality,nothing can change it.Nigerians have spoken.

        • Ed

          Just for your information in case you’re new to the forum. We stood up to all kind of name calling defending Buhari for months.
          We’re sleeping very well now. We’re thankful that our prayers are being answered. No shaking.

    True! He who must kill Gov. Fayose must first present to the Ekiti people and indeed the entire humanity an approval letter from God Himself before embarking on such venture. Congratulation to you, dear Gov. Fayose for your divinely inspired political triumph. My advice to you, however, forget not to serve the Ekiti people well. God bless your excellency!

  • Action_Nigeria

    NIGERIA WILL NEVER EVER ACCEPT BUHARI AS PRESIDENT ……….. THOSE WHO ARE PARADING BUHARI AS PRESIDENT ELECT WILL BE DISAPPOINTED IN THE END.

    It is no longer hidden that Muhammadu Buhari provided false information in his completed and tendered INEC forms falsely claiming that he has WASC ………. truth is that Buhari does not have WASC and was not even qualified to join the Nigerian Army Officer Corp.

    For the avoidance of doubt ……. the issue is not whether Buhari has the academic qualifications constitutionally prescribed for Candidates contesting for the Office of President. Notwithstanding, it is instructive to note that going by the documents Buhari tendered to INEC, there is no evidence that he has the academic qualifications constitutionally prescribed for Candidates contesting for the Office of President.

    Furthermore, the issue is not whether Buhari committed perjury or not ……… the issue is that Buhari provided false information in his duly completed and tendered prescribed INEC forms … the perjury issue only serves as concrete proof that Buhari provided false information in his duly completed and tendered prescribed INEC forms contrary to the provisions of the Electoral Act …. the consequences are very, very clear and obvious …….. DISQUALIFICATION
    ….. PERIOD

    Section 31 subsection 5 & 6 of the Electoral 2010 as amended is very clear and states inter alia:

    S31.5:

    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 Federal High Court, High Court of a State of FCT against such a person seeking a declaration that the information contained in the affidavit is false.

    RESTATED FOR CLARITY: S31.5:

    Any person who has reasonable grounds to believe that any information given by a candidate in ……………… any document submitted by that Candidate is false may file a suit at the Federal High Court, High Court of a State of FCT against such a person seeking a declaration that the information contained in the affidavit is false.

    S31.6:
    If the Court determines that any of the information contained in the affidavit or any document submitted by that candidate is false, the Court shall issue an Order disqualifying the Candidate from contesting the election.

    RESTATED FOR CLARITY: S31.6:
    If the Court determines that any of the information contained in ……….. any document submitted by that candidate is false, the Court shall issue an Order disqualifying the Candidate from contesting the election.

    It is not in doubt that Mohammed or Muhammadu Buhari submitted a document to INEC that contained false information viz. falsely claiming that he has WASC …… which obviously he does not have.

    What then is the basis of the delusion that Buhari is the President Elect ?

    NB:

    It is instructive to note that Section 31 of the Electoral Act also makes reference to “the prescribed forms” which indeed stipulated that Buhari attach copies of his academic qualifications claims to his completed “prescribed forms”.

    The essence of this provision was to ensure that crooks like Buhari and Tinubu who are veteran certificate
    forgers are not given an escape route .

    But Buhari, being a hardened crook who has been cheating on the certificate issue since 1961 when he joined the Army Officer Corps without WASC proceeded to commit perjury by claiming strangely that all his certificates are with a none existent Secretary to the Military Board.

    BUHARI IS A WORLD-CLASS LIAR AND CHEAT WHO WILL NEVER BE SWORN IN AS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

    • TC

      Auto repeat…… you are dusty and need an update….lol

    “Notwithstanding, it is instructive to note that going by the documents Buhari tendered to INEC, there is no evidence that he has the academic qualifications constitutionally prescribed for Candidates contesting for the Office of President.”

    • Jonathan_na_real_Mumu

      WHAT DO YOU MEAN ?

      First, Buhari said that all his certificates and documents are with a none existent Secretary to the Military Board.

      Much later Buhari went to his hometown Daura in Katsina State and declared that all his certificates and documents are with his late Great Great Grand Father who died in 1867.

      How then can you recover Buhari’s documents and certificates from his late Great Grand Father who died many, many years ago ….. who do you expect to go to Buhari’s Late Great Grand Father’s grave and recover Buhari’s certificates and documents …….. i beg leave matter jooo !!!

    • tundemash

      Pakistani girl …. looks like you are stil hurting .

      Ask your boys’ scout of Nigeria what happened to the certificates they claimed it was in their posession as of January 4th.

      • Action_Nigeria

        If they stole the certificates that are with the Army ……. why it so difficult for Buhari to ask Cambridge Assessment, UK to give him a copy …… is that not the most reasonable thing to do ?

        Why spend N25Billion on SANS when Buhari can spend nothing if he chooses to ask Cambridge Assessment, UK to give him a copy of his none existent WASC.?

        It’s very clear Buhari does not have WASC

        • tundemash

          Definitely , you are not schooled. No where are school certificate duplicated or copied. If you lose your certificate, the best you can get is exams resiult which was what Cambridge releasee. If in doubt, ask those who went to school in your family.

          Your fake propaganda failed to stop Buhari before the election so keep wasting your time. We have moved beyond election lost by Dumbo, we are eagerly awaitig the Otuoke Clown to vacate Aso Rock so that people’s General can make his triumphant entry. If you are in doubt of who is President-elect, ask Dumbo !!!!!

  • Aladelegan

    Lesson teacher for the Water-bed ex-Governor of Ekiti

    Alhaji Kayode Fayemi – the waterbed Ekiti State governor – does not know how to think.
    He need not be a lawyer to know how to think logically. He brought a no-brainer case.
    A court of law takes judicial notice that Ayo Fayose has again won 99% seats in
    the Ekiti state House of Assembly on April 11th, 2015. His 100% victory in 2014
    – being appealed to the Supreme Court – could therefore not have been rigged.
    That simple logic escapes the past Ekiti waterbed governor; Alhaji Kayode Fayemi.
    Fayemi needs to read: ‘HOW TO THINK WELL AND NOT OFFEND JUDGES’.
    It is a slim 65-page book published in simple English by The Westinghouse.

  • TC

    Shame, shame, shame….. Armed forces, DSS, Police, National assembly, Ministries, EFCC, churches, Media, JUDICIARY….etc.. All compromised and openly corrupt…..very sad and unfortunate the institutions that make up the fabric of our nation have gone rotten and can’t function. But thank God for change, welcome General Buhari & SAN Osibanjo….. we will see the needed reforms. These folks leading us are too dusty and archaic……

    • Wähala

      What this ruling means is that it’s perfectly ok to beat up Justices, tear up and destroy court documents… all by a man who used the military to rig and win elections he was not even qualified to be a part of on account of being impeached. Fayose has no certificates and was a suspected murderer who slapped the lights out of a sitting Judge. A big shame on all those corrupt justices who took part in today’s travesty… hope a tout slaps each of them one day in their evil lives since what goes round comes around.

      • TC

        They are not tired of embarrassing Nigeria, too much impunity. I pray that abysmal slap comes May 29th …. Terrible and pathetic miscreants.

  • Wähala

    Nigeria has no justice system, the idea of Constituted law is a joke in a country where corrupt criminals wearing horsetail rags on their heads and calling themselves lawyers & judges is a travesty by itself. This Supreme Court with Mary Odili as part of it acquitted Bode George, allows permanent injunction against Peter Odili, acquitted James Ibori of 17 charges only for a proper & civilized court to toss the clown into prison on mare 2 counts. Everything in Nigeria is abused to high heavens, Thank God for change and I truly wish Buhari flushes away the stench in our legal systems with Prof. Osinbajo as the sole umpire… Nonsense!

    • Bigtin

      Wow! You must be sent from heaven. Nice

      • TC

        He’s on point….. makes sense.

    • kenny

      Nothing good will come out of this useless change of yours. Did you see Fayose slap the judge? Nigeria has no justice system just because a judgement is not your favour.

      • Wähala

        Did the Nigerian legal system not acquit James Ibori of all charges…
        Where is Ibori today? I have never had any respect for your corrupt Justice system as it is purely pay-n-go legal system. A Farce!

        • kenny

          Yes, Nigerian legal system acquitted Ibori of all charges, but things are a bit different now. Did the same Nigerian legal system rule in favour of ACN in south west? I have never had any respect for any system in Nigeria. The same corrupt system has been given judgements in favour of APC. Many things are wrong in Nigeria, including the manner your president elect emerged a presidential candidate, yet all of you believe Buhari is the best.

          • Wähala

            This same gang of criminals masquerading as justices also upheld you moron’s right to run for re-election, had he won he would be the only man to be sworn-in as President three times against the junta-made Constitution everybody abuses… Go-siddon! Does Dumbo have a PhD? Throughout his political career he had been sworn-in as “Dr.” without Thesis nor proof of it. Fraudsters!

          • Action_Nigeria

            @WAHALA:

            I would like to know if all your certificates and documents are with a none existent Secretary to the Military Board or are they with your Late Great Grand Father who died in 1867 ……. sai Buhari !!!

          • Wähala

            The Army itself originally said they have Buhari’s credentials before Minimah stole them and ordered Olaleye to claim they didn’t have them… now that Buhari is president-elect, the Army suddenly claim they’ve found his academic credentials, doesn’t that sound silly and fishy to you, Deri?

          • Action_Nigeria

            Stop eating APC false propaganda …… the Army cannot find what Buhari does not have.

            What stops Buhari from asking Cambridge Assessment, UK to provide him with a copy of his WASC since November 2014 when this scandal broke ?

            Answer: Buhari knows that he does not have WASC

            What makes Buhari hire over 20 SANS to defend him on the WASC scandal with a legal expenses bill of of over N25Billion Naira when Buhari knows that it would cost him virtually nothing to ask Cambridge Assessment, UK to publicly declare his result.

            Answer: Buhari knows that he does not have WASC

          • tundemash

            Cl0wn ……. those were the words of your boys’ scout of Nigeria on January 4th.
            What happened to those certificates will be known after may 29th except if Dumbo is taking the with him to Otuoke.

          • Action_Nigeria

            If they stole the certificates that are with the Army ……. why it so difficult for Buhari to ask Cambridge Assessment, UK to give him a copy …… is that not the most reasonable thing to do ?

            Why spend N25Billion on SANS when Buhari can spend nothing if he chooses to ask Cambridge Assessment, UK to give him a copy of his none existent WASC.?

            It’s very clear Buhari does not have WASC

          • Action_Nigeria

            The Army7 had since released what they have showing that Buhari had nothing on file

          • Wähala

            Idiyot, did you not read the Army press release on the issue in January?
            Ken Minimah will be disgraced out of the army like your uncle Azazi was for that criminal act.
            Obasanjo said he saw Buhari’s certificates at the Army Archives, likewise IBB and others… Dumbo is the evil thief who stole them via your wetback uncle and they will all pay dearly for that gaffe. Watch!

            You mean with all the hair on her back and chest which you have to shave every Tuesday, and in spite of her beating you on a daily basis, she managed to be Heaven’s Finance Minster of the Year even though $20 billion was missing under her watch, eventhough she stole $1 billion from the ECA to pay petroleum marketers, even though she lied about Nigeria’s level of employment in 2013, etc.? LOL. My brother, you are not shaving the hair on Ngozi’s back properly. Your undying love for Ngozi is amazing. I have a new shaving cream that could help your efforts at pleasing Ngozi by removing the hair on her chest. LOL.

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            LOL. My mother does not want to be a criminal like your wife Ngozi or NOI. My mother does not want to wear the trousers in the relationship. My mother does not have thick hair or forest on her chest like your sweetheart Ngozi (NOI). How do you really manage to pull out the hair on Ngozi’s chest these days? Did Ngozi beat you last night as she always does?

      • TC

        You must have been sleeping since 1960 and just waking up…. you seem out of touch with reality and current events. Stop embarrassing yourself…..you won’t be forgiven even if you claim ignorance.

        • kenny

          What reality? Continue to deceive yourself, very soon you will realise that Buhari has got nothing to offer.

          • Wähala

            What did Dumbo offer in 6yrs? Do you know that power supply has dropped to below 3000mws, what was it when Dumbo took over? He inherited 100% of Nigeria and allowed Boko Haram to acquire a huge chunk. Corruption nko, in the history of Nigeria has any President lost $20bn in 18mos? The list is endless but, I’m certain you will vamoose from here when Buhari spreads your moron’s dirty laundry out in the open air… Clown!

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            But Ngozi iweala was part of that 6 years. She was the coordinating minister. The economy was rife with corruption. So, was Ngozi not the coordinating minister for corruption economy in Nigeria? How can you attack Dumbo and yet say nothing about your dear Ngozi?

          • Wähala

            Dr. NOI is the reason there’s still Nigeria today. Without her, Dumbo and his creek crooks would have looted everything and left idiyots like you holding your crotch at motor parks… Stinking baastard!

          • Guguru

            Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

            LOL. You sound like a malfunctioning being. An employee of a criminal Jonathan administration (Ngozi iweala) who happens to be your wife and lover, saved Nigeria from further looting, ehn? Really? So, you still insist on being a woman wrapper, while wearing the skirts in your relationship with Ngozi while she wears the trousers? How many times do you shave the hair on Ngozi’s chest everyday? How many times does Ngozi beat you everyday for you to make your inane and lousy remarks? LOL.

    • Action_Nigeria

      I suggest you spend your time thinking about Buhari WASC matter that will come up for hearing on April 23 & 24, 2015.

      Please don’t forget:

      1. Going by the documents Buhari tendered to INEC, there is no evidence that he has the academic qualifications constitutionally prescribed for Candidates contesting for the Office of President.

      2. First, Buhari said that all his certificates and documents are with a none existent Secretary to the Military Board.

      3. Much later Buhari went to his hometown Daura in Katsina State and declared that all his certificates and documents are with his late Great Great Grand Father who died in 1867.How then can you recover Buhari’s documents and certificates from his late Great Grand Father who died many, many years ago ….. who do you expect to go to Buhari’s Late Great Grand Father’s grave and recover Buhari’s certificates and documents?

      4. Premium Times published Buhari’s fake poorly done “oluwole” WASC from Katsina

      5. APC propaganda machine went to town to say that the Army has found Buhari’s none existent WASC.

      6. As it stands now, WASC presented by Buhari will never be accepted unless it is authenticated by Cambridge Assessment, UK.

      • Tunsj

        Nonsense. You are two faced lying fraud.

      • Wähala

        Deri…
        I’ve told you, “the game is over” and you need some respite. Dumbo has been flaunting a fake PhD and even got UniPort to block all inquiries into his academic life. When Buhari takes over is when shit will hit the ceiling. There will be no hiding place for the pig from Otuoke. Everybody saw a secondary school picture of Gen. Buhari with oyinbo principals and Administrators, has anyone seen anybody whom Dumbo lectured at UniPort of even his WEAC results? A clown who cannot express himself in simple English and has been a mega embarrassment to Nigeria on world stage, a drunkard who missed several speaking engagements due to alcohol abuse. Go to Hell boo! We have crossed that academic bridge and heading to Chibok to find out what happened to our virgins under his drunken gaze. This ruling is pure travesty by irresponsible clowns masking as justices… Here in Germany, it takes about 3yrs on average for any case to make it to Karlsruhe where real honorable Justices decide Constituional matters. In Nigeria every tout can bribe any Supreme Court ruling to his favor… Banana Republic, indeed. Hopeless land. Just pray Buhari lives long enough to straighten things up… Sai Buhari!

        • Action_Nigeria

          FACT:

          It does not matter what pictures Buhari took with Oyibo, what matters is this:

          Going by the documents Buhari tendered to INEC, there is no evidence
          that he has the academic qualifications constitutionally prescribed for
          Candidates contesting for the Office of President.

    • Guguru

      Wahala aka Segun aka Segun Abiodun aka Rotimi Lawanson,

      How can you make such comments when Ngozi Iweala is as charlatan and as pedestrian in her thinking and ideas as Fayose? How can Dumbo be so bad and yet you say nothing about the lies and deception created about the economy by Ngozi who helps to coordinate the corrupt economy in Nigeria? Why do you love Ngozi so much?

          Honestly, I was really hoping now the elections are over-ish (barring the tribunals) that these PDP trolls would simply go away. I wish Premium Times and other publications would start moderating comments to keep away insane trolls. I wish there was a way we could make their comments invisible. I try to ignore their comments no matter how provoking. I think we should all do the same. Chances are, the comments might all be coming from one demented person.

    Another Church Burnt In Sokoto To Celebrate APC’s Victory.

    A Pentecostal Church in Sokoto state capital, Sokoto was set ablaze by youths of the Nigerian first Islamist Party, the APC, to celebrate the Victory of Hon Aminu Tambuwal as their Governor elect.

    The Church was singled out according to locals because of its name, The Goodluck Embassy Church. A Muslim leader whom the youths accused of supporting President Goodluck Jonathan was also Stoned by the youths, but was rescued by his family and friends that Challenged the celebrating youths.

    About five churches have been burnt down by rampaging APC youths since Muhammadu Buhari was declared winner of the 2015 Presidential election. What a shame

      What’s wrong with churches being set ablaze?

      I replied you before and you ran to another page to repeat the same thing. Can’t you hear word?
      I say that i am happy to hear that so far five [5] churches have been burnt since Buhari was elected.
      I will be so angry that i can wound any Pastor – whether Redeemed or Mountain of Fire – should i hear
      any complaint over it from any Christian Bishop or Prelate. I am saying it with all the seriousness in me.
      As Christians are being burnt on the streets, or in their churches, let me not hear any noise from them.
      I can be very brutal when i am angry. Let the Christians set on fire just burn quietly without disturbing me!
      They voted for CHANGE, so let them burn! Nobody should worry over how many Christians are burnt.

            Sharia Law cancels the Holy Bible in source and contents. Whoever voted for APC
            voted for Sharia law and ceased to be a Christian, forever, from the date of Nigeria’s
            last election because Sharia Law is an Islamic ordinance enacted to nullify Jesus’
            commandments, and so, a law enacted to nullify Jesus Christ is offensive speech
            against the Holy spirit, and there is no forgiveness for endorsing offensive speech
            against the Holy Spirit. That is what the Bible says, that the retarded Pastors did
            not warn the congregation of and so became joint criminals in pursuit of money.

            The Commander in Chief of the Nigeria armed forces as of today is President Goodluck Jonathan. People killing and burning churches should be arrested regardless of which party they belong to. The failure of Jonathan to act as a president is the main reason is on the way back to Otuake.
            Buhari or any other leader will not look the other way when churches or mosque are getting burned he or she will arrest and prosecute them. The responsibility of the president and the government is the security of the people and their property. Please put the blame on the president and the criminals.

          My man, you are on the right road. Nigerian Christians are un-thinking people.
          They don’t even understand the scriptures. Nor do their Pastors understand it.
          On liberation theology amid a Jihad, Nigerian Christians are worse than clueless.

          Because the scriptures say Christians don’t walk by sight, the idiotic born-again
          Christians in Nigeria pluck out their own eyes to become blind to Islamist Jihad.

        I agree with you completely. Since they have sold their birthright for a mess of porridge (VP), they should not complain when the jihadist comes calling. I hope they will not seek the blessings with tears like esau.

  • the truth

    Many neutrals are happy with this decision. Some unwise people are pushing for a one party state. To them only APC should take up all the positions. Tyrants and authoritarians think this way. When the law rules in favor of them it is the beauty of democracy when it goes against them the judiciary is corrupt. Look at some of them say Osinbajo would come and clean the judiciary, do this people know the difference between a military government and a democratic dispensation.

      where were you when the pdp turned the country into a one party state bragging all over the time that they’ll be in power for 60years. of course not only the judiciari but every facet of the nation will be cleansed. Change has come. Thank you apc.

    Nigerian Army, Wasc/Cambridge Certificate, and, General Buhari

    Please allow me a little space on your web page. I want to thank the Nigerian Army.
    I respect those army generals who came out and told us the truth on Buhari’s Wasc.
    They’ve been under cruel verbal attacks for doing their duty to tell the truth, by law.
    Some wicked commentators referred to them as political generals. But they are not.

    Buhari himself invited the army into the issue by swearing an affidavit citing the army.
    Buhari said in that affidavit that his original Wasc certificate is with the Nigerian Army.
    In effect, Nigerians flooded Army headquarters with requests for official confirmation
    Rather than answer each enquiry the army issued a public notice for all of the enquiries.
    That was the correct step educated army generals should take, even here in America.

    • Ed

      What’s your point. The Nigerian Armed forces said they have Buhari’s certificate. Case closed.

        Re: Tokunbo Afikuyomi and Buhari’s WASC,

        The Nigerian Army has so far acted with incredible restraint. In any other country,
        Tokunbo Afikuyomi who tweeted the FALSE AND LIBELLOUS NONSENSE on 3rd April
        that the Nigerian Army has found Buhari’s certificate – which Buhari never submitted –
        would still be in military detention. But the Army has restrained itself admirably to allow
        Buhari come to court on 22nd April and say his own story. That restraint is of course
        not tantamount to immunity for Tokunbo Afikuyomi who shall be severely punished
        under military regulations when the Buhari’s court case is over. He is a reckless
        small boy who can only learn through severe flogging, pains and punishment.

      ………..(2) Nigerian Army, the Wasc/Cambridge, and, General Buhari

      Because the Nigerian Army did the right thing, last Sunday’s
      Vanguard comment by Brigadier Ikpomnwen (rtd) is wrong and without any factual
      basis in fact; or any rational basis in law. According to Brigadier Ikpomnwen, the Army
      should have refused to say the truth by instead saying that all enquiries must be
      directed to either the INEC office or to the Katsina Provincial School.

      I think Nigeria is very lucky that the likes of Brigadier Ikpomnwen (a lawyer) have retired
      and left the army. For this is what he would have done, as he said, and he would have
      damned the law. Tellingly he did NOT say why he’d rather do such outrageous nonsense
      than simply obey the law and tell the truth as the valiant military officers in the army today
      have done to global admiration.

      I surmise that as APC chieftain in Edo state Brigadier Ikpomnwen might just
      be worming his way into the heart of Buhari for a federal appointment. Otherwise,
      his lawless view simply does not resonate in any decent civilian or military circle in Nigeria.

      First of all, the Nigerian army would have still been bound to come and make this same statement
      in a court of law, having been drawn into this Wasc case as a witness, by Muhammadu Buhari himself.
      So, what’s the sense in the army firstly flouting another Federal Law on Freedom of Information until
      13 subpoenas are served by the 13 persons who filed cases in court against Buhari on this Wasc case?

    • Jonathan_na_real_Mumu

      Please stop eating APC false propaganda …… the Army cannot find or provide what Buhari does not have.

      Does Buhari have need to rely on the Nigerian Army for his WASC when he can easily ask Cambridge Assessment, UK to provide him with one ?

      Question: What stops Buhari from asking Cambridge Assessment, UK to provide him with a copy of his WASC since November 2014 when this scandal broke ?

      Answer: Buhari knows that he does not have WASC

      Question: What makes Buhari hire over 20 SANS to defend him on the WASC scandal with a legal expenses bill of of over N25Billion Naira and counting when Buhari knows that it would cost him virtually nothing to ask Cambridge
      Assessment, UK to publicly declare his WASC result.

      Answer: Buhari knows that he does not have WASC

      FACT: Going by the documents Buhari tendered to INEC, there is no evidence that he has the academic qualifications constitutionally prescribed for Candidates contesting for the Office of President.

      FACT: Buhari provided false information in his duly completed and tendered prescribed INEC forms by falsely claiming that he has WASC.

      FACT: In an attempt to cover up the false information that he provided, Buhari proceeded to commit perjury by strangely claiming that all his certificates are with a none existent Secretary to the Military Board …… a position not known to the Nigerian Constitution and not known to the Nigerian Army Ordinance.
