President Muhammadu Buhari

The National Democratic Front (NDF) has said the ongoing debate over the WAEC certificate of President Muhammadu Buhari is unnecessary.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had on Friday challenged Buhari to show proof of his vaunted integrity by presenting his academic documents to INEC.

In a statement by the National President of NDF, Audu Auwulu, said the debate was a needless distraction sponsored by the PDP to divert attention from issues at hand.

He said: “The campaign of calumny over Buhari’s certificate is another needless debate sponsored by the Peoples Democratic Party to divert attention from issues affecting the country.

“NDF is not surprised that instead of addressing any of the numerous challenges affecting the country, a few vocal elements within the leading opposition party in Nigeria have decided to make mockery of the presidential contest by trivializing the campaigns using an already rested “certificate” saga to distract the people.

“NDF wants to hear real issues being discussed as it has long been settled that PMB has both his WAEC and other higher qualifications to be President of Nigeria. We would rather ask the PDP some pertinent questions.”
