Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) has called for the disqualification of President Buhari from the 2019 presidential election if he does not present his West African Examinations Council (WAEC) certificate.
This was made know in a statement issued by the President of the group, Alhaji Yerima Shettima on Sunday, October 28, 2018, according to reports.
Buhari recently did not submit his WAEC results, as required by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
According to reports, the President only swore to an affidavit claiming that his credentials are with the the Secretary of the Military Board.
According to Daily Post, Buhari’s affidavit reads: “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.”
However, The Cable reports that a former registrar, West African Examination Council (WAEC), Alex Ajayi, claims to have issued Buhari’s WAEC certificate along with those of Generals Sani Abacha and Ibrahim Babangida.
His words: “…I joined the West African Examination Council as a pioneer staff. I was the first substantive Nigerian Assistant Registrar. I took over the control of the examination from the University of Cambridge. I took examiners to Cambridge for training across 10 years and trained them in Nigeria. I had the opportunity of issuing WAEC certificates to three former Heads of State: Buhari, Abacha and Babangida in the 60s.”
