Stop politicising PMB’s certificate
after propaganda. From “Buhari will Islamize Nigeria” to” Buhari is terminally ill”, to” Buhari has no certificate”. All of their propaganda fell flat on their faces.
Now that elections are around the corner, they have resurfaced again with the “Buhari has no certificate “propaganda. It will be a complete waste of effort this time as this election is going to be about issues and not propaganda. The election is going to be about track records of the different parties while in office.
The people are going to be comparing the roads now and then they will compare power supply now and then. The parents of the over 7 million schools pupils being fed every school day will compare now and then. The over one million most vulnerable poorest of the poor amongst us receiving N5000 conditional cash transfer every month, the over half a million graduates receiving N30,000 every month, all of these people will compare the party in power now with the performance of those who left power in 2015. These are what the Nigerian people will be discussing in 2019 not some mundane propaganda sponsored by some failed politicians who squandered the opportunity to better the lot of the people whilst they were in power.
Let me also use this opportunity to dismiss their lies. The constitutional requirements to run for office of the president are very clear and unambiguous. President Buhari’s former school, Government College, formerly Provincial Secondary School Katsina released a statement that Buhari actually graduated from the school and that he wrote the School certificate Examination there. The school later went ahead to release the result to the public, including a copy of the result spread sheet showing other candidates who sat for same exam with their results as well. So what other evidence would the detractors of the President require before they are satisfied?
It is outright ridiculous and very mischievous to claim that President Buhari isn’t educated up to school certificate level. There are those who believe that the PDP might have sponsored some people to tamper with President Buhari’s documents with the army. If not, how could this suddenly just be an issue in 2015. The same forms he submitted to INEC 2003, 2007 and 2011 and this issue was not raised, then suddenly in 2015 his documents were missing. I am tending to believe in this line of thought by now. If not, how do you confidently wake up and then start accusing a retired general of the Nigerian Army that he didn’t attend secondary school. There must be something informing such confidence may be they know something we don’t know.
In 2015 whilst President Buhari and his party were out there campaigning, telling the people what they will do, I remember Fani Kayode and his fellow party man, Ayo Fayose were busy selling propaganda to the people calling Buhari all sorts of names. Rather than tell the people what they have done and what they intend to do better they rather preferred abuse and propaganda. We all saw what the outcome was, President Buhari trumped them at the polls with a wide margin. The Nigerian people will have none of their nonsense any more.
The same thing is already playing out now. President Buhari as usual will not join issues with anybody. He has been focused on the job at hand, commissioning projects up and about the whole country, on the other hand those who are challenging to take over are not telling Nigerians what they will do better but want to start the nonsense they did the other time and lost, again. The propaganda that could not save them whilst in power is not likely to get them back to power now that they are out. Nigerians are interested in real issues that affect them daily. Not mundane propaganda about President Buhari’s health or certificate.
