Naija News had reported that the spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo (SAN) had declared that one does not compulsorily need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.
Keyamo made the assertion on Sunday when he answered a question on the eligibility of Buhari to contest the presidential election.
In his submission, the Senior Advocate of Nigeria said, 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 to Keyamo assertion on Twitter, Femi Fani-Kayode 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“Or has he withdrawn his WAEC claim?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.”
