Running the nation Nigeria with his primary six certificate and light bill as claimed by some source who took the president to court 2016. But not to bore you with different issue surrounding the Nigeria government let’s read what PDP has said about President Buhari’s indoor meeting with INEC boss
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday condemned an alleged secret meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, last Friday in Abuja.
PDP cautioned the INEC against succumbing to pressure to manipulate the electoral process in favour of Buhari as such could cause a serious crisis in the country.
- I am sure you are transform by the information you get through me, I am also sure you can be part of our daily updates. why not leave your email behind let me keep you informed with information, jobs and inspire you always.
In a statement by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, yesterday, the party, after reviewing the rising tension and degenerating security situation in the country, charged Buhari not to allow his personal ambition to push the nation into chaos.
It said the president’s handlers who “are desperate to force him on an unwilling nation, are fast pushing the country to the brinks and should be checked before it is too late.”
PDP said its fresh caution to the INEC chairman was predicated on an alleged secret meeting he held with Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari, at the Presidential villa last Friday.
The opposition party further urged INEC to note that “Nigerians are aware that by President Buhari’s declaration, in an affidavit, that his said certificates are with the military, his nomination documentation is, therefore, constitutionally incomplete, making him ineligible to contest the 2019 Presidential elections.
“Also, by failing to write to the military authorities to release his claimed certificates, Mr. President leaves Nigerians with no option than to hold that he does not have the credentials, and the 1999 Constitution (as amended) did not provide that affidavits can be used as a substitute for any candidate’s credentials.”
To the PDP, Buhari’s affidavit also shows that he did not submit any certificate in 2015, making his candidacy for that election improper and defective under the nation’s laws.
“Prof. Yakubu must have noted the heavy public criticisms that have been trailing his provocative declaration that Nigerians should go to court over the certificate saga. His statement betrays an electoral umpire who is under threats and heavy pressure to abdicate his statutory duty of enforcing constitutional requirements for elections.”
The PDP said it believed that allowing such a siege mentality on the country’s democratic institutions to fester would surely spell doom for the country.
Meanwhile, the deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Yekini Nabena, has said the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, cannot stop Buhari’s reelection bid in the 2019 poll.
Nabena particularly pointed at President Buhari’s integrity and clean record in public service as a selling point which, according to him, the electorate would not overlook on the election day.
