The Attestation of result presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by officials of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) on Friday, has been generating alot of reactions, both for and against, and some prominent politicians from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party(DPD)have all taken to their respective social media handle to expressed their views.
“Today I received the attestation and confirmation of my 1961 West African School Certificate (WASC) Examination result, from the Registrar of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC). It was also an opportunity for me to thank WAEC for upholding its integrity over the years.
As a Nigerian military officer, it would have been impossible for me to have attended the Defence Services Staff College in India in 1973, and, after that – in 1979 – the United States Army War College, had I not sat for the WASC examinations, which I did in 1961.”
“The late General Shehu Musa Yar’Adua was my classmate. We spent close to nine years in boarding school, at primary and secondary levels. And from there, after our WASC, we moved to join the Army, where we had to take a military examination as one of the requirements.”
See all the reactions from the PDP members:
Former Governor of Ekiti State Governor Ayodele, reacting to the news, said:
“If it was this easy to get WAEC to issue the “Attestation/Confirmation Certificate, why waiting this long? Why contesting four times without a single certificate? So when will the military produce the credentials that he claimed are with them? Many questions begging for answers.”
“My consolation is that (provided they will allow votes to count) Nigerians will have the opportunity of ending this national embarrassment in 4 months time. I have never seen a nation that has been so embarrassed by a mere question of; “Mr President, where are your credentials?” Fayose said.
Senator Ben Murray Bruce said:
“President Muhammadu Buhari sells off national assets built or established by previous PDP administrations, he must first of all apologise to them for claiming that they did not achieve anything. If they did not do anything, why is he selling what they established?”
Reno Omokri on his part said:
“Yahoo boys are learning when compared to Muhammadu Buhari and WAEC and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is arresting the wrong people. What magic is this? Same WAEC that officially wrote that they have no record of Buhari sitting for School Certificate suddenly abracadabras a certificate!”
