Mr. Festus Keyamo, Senior Lawyer in Nigeria and spokesman to Mr. Muhammadu Buhari campaign organization for 2019 presidential election has said WAEC certificate is not needed for one to become a President or a governor in Nigeria.
Keyamo made the disclosure when he appeared on Channels Television’s programme, ‘Politics Today’ on Sunday.
“There are other levels of qualifications to run for the office of President. In fact, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, by the provisions of the constitution, you do not even need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria”.
Keyamo defending Buhari certificate said he sat and passed all exams, emphasising that WAEC issued certificate to Buahri
It foolish for those who do not work in WAEC to contest certificate issued by the body, he added.
