*Falsehood: PDP politicians risk revolts from Nigerian masses – Concerned Citizens

*Say, “If they talk of hunger, we know why we are”

*Declare: “Whoever wants to go and die should do but Buhari’s certificate is settled”

“Despite the clear English Language spoken by WAEC, a so­-called main opposition party, headed by a lawyer as its national chairman, still has to grope in the darkness of its own mischief saying it is a twist and that the President has no certificate.  Let us assure the PDP that whatever chaos they want to cause in 2019 with their falsehood that they are spreading to mislead the people using our stolen money to back up their campaigns of hate and fakeness, we the rightful owners of Nigeria, the masses in support of President Muhammadu Buhari, are ever ready for them and their dogmatic, hungry followers. Let them continue till we meet because, we will fully support any action taken by government and security forces to curtail their unpatriotism,” he said.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari over the presentation of a West African Examination Council, WAEC Certificate of Attestation and Confirmation to him by the examination body last week.

The party likened the twist in the President’s certificate narrative to a huge smear on the nation’s integrity and the Office of the President.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said the development has turned the nation into a laughing stock in the West African sub-region and the entire global community, as “our President is now being mentioned as beneficiary of a duplicitous act.”

The PDP spoke just as it was swiftly replied by some concerned Nigerians, who ask the opposition to be more serious by, for once, taking a departure from the 2015 campaign tactics of blackmailing that aided its ouster from power as incumbent.

Also firing back at the PDP was Spokesman of the Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Mr. Festus Keyamo (SAN), who said the dumbest comments he has read about the now dead issue of the President Muhammadu Buhar’s WAEC result is for the PDP to say that WAEC forged its own document.

The opposition’s statement read: “Most appalling is that Mr. President’s handlers have succeeded in dragging a reputable institution as WAEC into public disrepute and opprobrium, as Nigerians are quick to demonstrate marks of forgery in the attestation issued by the examination body.

“A check on the attestation clearly shows that it does not have the “Original Certificate Number”, the key authentication feature in all genuine attestations by WAEC.

Instead, a “non-applicable” is entered, indicating that the beneficiary does not have a certificate to be attested to, thus rendering the said attestation unauthenticated, fake and of no effect.

“Also, the attestation is for West African Senior School Certificate, which President Buhari couldn’t have sat for, given that the Senior School Certificate Examination was established only in the late 1980s.

“Does it not smack of high level scam that the same WAEC, which, in 2015, confirmed that it does not have records of President Buhari’s certificate, now had to send officials to present Mr. President with an attestation, that has no original certificate number?”

The party also noted that “by WAEC rules, attestations are only issued in the case of missing or destroyed certificate. Why then should the exam body issue an attestation to President Buhari, whose certificate, he claimed are with the military and not missing or destroyed?

“If not intended to circumvent the system and deceive Nigerians, why did President Buhari’s handlers chose to write to WAEC to issue an attestation when he, as the Commander-in-Chief, has the powers to direct the military to make available his credentials for all to see.

“What the unauthenticated attestation has shown is that Mr. President does not have a WAEC certificate; we urge his handlers to humbly so admit and apologize to the nation, having exhausted all gimmicks to mislead Nigerians.

“The Buhari Presidency should know that there is no way the truth can be suppressed. In fact, the current disagreement between the Presidency and WAEC over who initiated the attestation deal is also very revealing. The PDP urged WAEC to redeem its image by handing over all its officials involved in the deal to the INTERPOL for investigation and prosecution, while also calling on the Nigerian Police to immediately “invite Mr. President’s handlers for questioning over this huge national embarrassment.”

One of the concerned citizens, who spoke to The DEFENDER, said, “Come to talk of it, if PDP wins 2019 election, how will it reconcile itself with all the damages that it has caused to Nigerian institutions including WAEC? Don’t believe that INEC, military, Police, NTA, and even Nigerian courts are failed institutions that have no truth in them as far as PDP is concerned. How should now Nigeria allow them to have their victory even if INEC declares one for them at any level?”

“It is just like those who say they want Biafra Republic and because of that have caused Nigeria a Zoo.  Imagine that when they wanted to fight the Army over their concocted allegation of murder of Nnamdi Kanu it was Nigerian court they went to seeking justice.  How do you see justice from a country that you have called a Zoo and you never believed in? This is what this PDP never realized; that it risks a revolt from Nigerian masses, who are determined not to be swayed by its politicians’ moneybag campaign spending, as they will not be ready to allow it enjoy any favour in case any poll victory tilts towards it in 2019.  That is even away from expectation that it will ever smell presidential victory anyway,” he said.

He concluded saying that, “As far we Nigerians are concerned, and when I say Nigerians I meant who Nigerians who are not Lazy Youths and hypocritical elders, ethnic jingoists, religious bigots, WAEC has spoken.  It said, ‘We have decided to seek this courtesy visit to clear ourselves and present you confirmation and attestation that we have your records and present you copy of your certificate, Your Excellency’.

“Despite the clear English Language spoken by WAEC, a so­-called main opposition party, headed by a lawyer as its national chairman, still has to grope in the darkness of its own mischief saying it is a twist and that the President has no certificate.  Let us assure the PDP that whatever chaos they want to cause in 2019 with their falsehood that they are spreading to mislead the people using our stolen money to back up their campaigns of hate and fakeness, we the rightful owners of Nigeria, the masses in support of President Muhammadu Buhari, are ever ready for them and their dogmatic, hungry followers. Let them continue till we meet because, we will fully support any action taken by government and security forces to curtail their unpatriotism,” he said.

“But wait a minute! Whereas Buhari and his government people plus the masses, who voted him in 2015 and are again working hard for his return in 2019, are busy rolling out itemized achievements of his administration with convincing explanations as to why those that have been done were done, how they were they achieved and why those yet to be completed have not been completed and how they will complete them, issue based! The whole of those so called lawyers and journalists and their elders who know ‘economy’ are busy with campaign of hates and fake news; campaign of blackmails and thinking that character damages plus ill-gotten dollarized wealth will hand them victory in 2019.  Not again!” He said.
