Spokesperson of the 2019 Buhari campaign organization, Festus Keyamo, has said that to be a president of Nigeria you don’t need a WAEC Certificate.
Festus Kenyamo who is a lawyer was a guest on Channels TV last night where the issue of President Buhari’s WAEC certificate was discussed.
The opposition party, PDP and other political parties, have contested President Buhari’s eligibility to be the President on the grounds that he has not tendered his WAEC results to INEC.
Speaking in the interview, Keyamo says a WAEC certificate is not a prerequisite to becoming the President of Nigeria.
He said if you have occupied public office for a reasonable length of time, by the provisions of the constitution, you do not even need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.
“There are other levels of qualifications to run for the office of President. In fact, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, by the provisions of the constitution, you do not even need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria”.
“It becomes extremely foolish for anybody who is not statutorily empowered to issue WAEC certificates to come and challenge the body that has the statutory power to issue certificates,”
