PDP Tells Buhari To Withdraw From Presidential Race Over Certificate Saga

The Presidential Campaign Organisation, PCO, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, accused the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari, rtd of committing perjury, alleging that he (Buhari) lied on oath.

Addressing Journalists, the Director of Media and Publicity of the PDP campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode who asked Buhari, to as a matter of urgency throw in the towel by withdrawing from the race.

The PDP campaign Organisation Spokesperson who urged him to report himself to the nearest police station, adding that the Armed Forces must strip him of his ranks and privileges, stressed that with the papers on ground, General Buhari who rose to the rank of a Major- General and and a former Head of state, was never qualified to enlist in the Nigerian army as a commissioned Officer, adding that if h fails to report to the Police, the PDP would then hand him over to God.

Femi Fani-Kayode whose speech was titled, ” And Buhari lies on Oath, said, “Information reaching us now has shown that the Presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed today in Kano at a press conference that the affidavit he swore to in which he claimed that his credentials were in the custody of the military was not true after all.

Recall that Buhari, at another press briefing Wednesday said; “I had assumed all along that all my records were in the custody of the Military Secretary of the Nigerian Army. Much to my surprise, we are now told that although a record of the result is available, there are no copies of the certificates in my personal file. This is why I formally requested my old school the Provincial Secondary School, Katsina (which is now known as Government College, Katsina) to make available the school’s copy of the result of the Cambridge/West African School Certificate. This will be made available to the press the moment this is available”.

Fani-Kayode continued, “The implication of the action of this so-called “Mr Clean” is nothing but perjury and we all know that this is a grave criminal offence under our laws and constitution.

“We urge Buhari and his party to do the right thing and tender an unreserved apology to the Nigerian people, throw in the towel and report to the nearest police station for interrogation and prosecution. Anything less than that would be an insult to the collective intelligence and integrity of the Nigerian people.”
