The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday, has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure to submit his academic credentials to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Buhari’s Secondary School certificate controversy made the headlines in 2014, during the build-up to the 2015 Presidential poll, where he was the Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ahead of the 2019 elections, details of various Candidates’ credentials were made available to Reporters, in Abuja, on Thursday, and it emerged that President Buhari only submitted an affidavit, wherein he claimed that his credentials were with the Secretary of the Military Board.
Buhari’s affidavit reportedly read: “I am the above-named person and the deponent of this affidavit herein. All my academic qualification documents as filled in my Presidential form, APC/001/2015, are currently with the Secretary of the Military Board, as of the time of this affidavit.”
Reacting to the development, PDP’s National Spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, advised Buhari on what to do.
In a tweet, Ologbondiyan stated that Buhari should write to the Military authorities, asking for his credentials.
He wrote: “Integrity demands that you write to Military authorities, asking them to forward your credentials to INEC.
“Even @MBuhari followers are not prepared to accept NEPA Bill for WAEC in 2019
