The senator representing Kaduna Central at the Nigerian Senate, Shehu Sani, has told the West African Examinations Council (Waec) not to sail into the ‘stormy dishonourable sea of politics’, in what appears to be a reaction to the issuance of attestation to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Concise News had earlier reported that the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, said that Waec presented an attestation certificate and confirmation of school certificate result to his principal.
“Waec presents attestation certificate and confirmation of school cert result to President Buhari. What will the naysayers say next?” Adesina tweeted without the photos of the certificate.
However, moments after Adesina’s tweet, Bashir Ahmad, the Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, took to Twitter to display the photos of the President’s certificate.
Ahmad tweeted: The Waec presents attestation certificate and confirmation of school certificate result to President
Waec Registrar, Iyi Uwadiae, presented the document to the President on Friday at the State House in Abuja.
Reacting to the development in a cryptic message on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, on Sunday morning, the Kaduna central lawmaker told the Council to ‘save the innocent lads’ on the board as well the trust many have on the Council.
Senator Sani, who recently moved to the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) after dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said the Council would not only ‘wreck and sink’ but its ‘reputation will be bruised forever’ if it delves into politics.
The PRP lawmaker tweeted: “Oh thee Septuagenarian Waec; Save the innocent lads on thy board and in thy trust; Thou shalt not sail into the stormy dishonourable sea of politics; thee will wreck and sink and thy reputation will be bruised forever.”
Oh thee Septuagenarian Waec;Save the innocent lads on thy board and in thy trust;Thou shalt not sail into the stormy dishonorable sea of politics;thee will wreck and sink and thy reputation will be bruised forever.
