A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to the claim by Festus Keyamo, the Spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign Council that one does not need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.
Keyamo had in an interview on Sunday claimed that under the Nigerian constitution, one does not need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.
According to him, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, you do not need a WAEC certificate to become president of Nigeria.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode on his Twitter page on Monday wrote:
“Buhari may not need a WAEC certificate to contest but once he swore to an affidavit or presented a form indicating that his qualifications include WAEC, it becomes a different matter. Or has he withdrawn his WAEC claim? This is a matter of perjury and not whether he is qualified.”
