The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has described the sudden release of Senior School Certificate to President Muhammadu Buhari by West African Examination Council (Waec) as suspicious.
Buhari had on Friday received his West Africa Examination Council certificate from Dr Iyi Uwadiae, the Registrar of Waec.
The CUPP stated this in a statement issued in Abuja by its National Spokesperson, Ikenga Ugochinyere.
Uwadiae said that there were indications that the result was hurriedly released to stall the commencement of the suit seeking to disqualify the President from the 2019 election.
The opposition parties also described the action as laughable, unbelievable and a desperate effort to mislead the court.
Uwadiae called on Waec to produce the official ledger and booklet containing the scores and records of names of students of the Provincial Secondary School, Katsina, now called Government Secondary School.
The spokesperson said Waec succumbed to what he called “high level pressure to issue out the document which is suspicious and aimed at misleading Nigerians and the court to believe President Buhari sat for the exam when in the actual sense he did not, as there is no evidence to support the assertion.”
He said, “Let Nigerians be reminded that a few days ago, the opposition raised the alarm that there was an ongoing move to tamper with the records of Waec and pressure the leadership into manufacturing a result for President Buhari.
“Today’s action of Waec has vindicated our earlier fears and confirmed our stand that Waec is now competing with Oluwole Market in manufacturing documents.”
