Festus Keyamo, the Spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (All Progressive Congress) campaign Council has said that one doesn’t need a WAEC certificates to become President of Nigeria, naija news live reports

Keyamo stated this while showing on Channels Television on Sunday night when asked concerning the eligibility of President Muhammadu Buhari to contest the presidential election.

In accordance with him, when you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, you do not need a WAEC certificates to become president of Nigeria.

Keyamo mentioned “There are different levels of qualifications to run for the office of President. Actually, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable amount of time, by the provisions of the constitution, you don’t even need a WAEC certificates to become President of Nigeria.

“It becomes extraordinarily foolish for anyone who will not be statutorily empowered to issue WAEC certificates to come and challenge the body that has the statutory power to issue certificates.”

That is coming days after the All Progressive Congress filed a motion on the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja by its lead counsel, Lateef Fagbemi faulting the candidacy of Atiku in the election, claiming that Atiku is a Cameroonian and not a Nigerian citizen.

APC, therefore said that the previous Vice President’s petition against President Muhammadu Buhari, its personal candidate, should be dismissed for lacking in merit.
