Tribunal: Atiku Exposes Buhari’s “Fake” Education Claims
The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] in the 2019 presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has made more damning revelation on the education status of President Muhammadu Buhari as “fake”.
Alhaji Abubakar made the revelations in the document he presented before the tribunal as part of evidences he won the election and that President Buhari should be disqualified from the race.
According to Atiku, the schools Buhari claimed he attended in his forms and Curriculum Vitae submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] did not exist as at the time he indicated.
Also, Buhari/PDP claimed to have written WASC in 1961 while that qualification (WASC) did not even exist as at that time, which suggests that Buhari was not qualified to run ab initio.
The documents stated that the educational institutions Buhari “claimed to have attended and the certificates presented by him namely, Elementary School Daura and Mai Aduaa between 1948 and 1952, Middle School Katsina between 1953 and 1956 and Katsina Provincial College (now Government College, Katsina) between 1956 to 1961 and mentioned by the 2nd respondent in his curriculum vitae attached to Form CF 001, were not in existence as of those mentioned dates.”
Buhari/PDP added further: “The 2nd respondent in Form CF o01 filled and submitted by him to the 1st Respondent at Paragraph C, Column 2, Page 3, under SECONDARY, wrote “WASC,” thereby falsely claiming that qualification whereas there was no qualification known as WASC as of 1961.”
ElombahNews had earlier reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) computer server shows that Atiku Abubakar won the February 23 election with about 1.6 million votes to defeat President Buhari, the opposition candidate claims.
This was contained in the petition filed on Monday by PDP and Abubakar, to challenge the victory of Mr Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC).
The petition, which sought to rely on 50 sets of documents, was filed before the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja against INEC, Mr Buhari and the APC respectively.
The petitioners, therefore, contend that the Buhari was, at the material time, not qualified to contest election for the exalted office of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
