The political comedy surrounding the WAEC certificate presented by the examination body to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Rock on friday has continued to elicit reactions from Nigerians, the latest being from the immediate past governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose.
The former governor described the entire process as a national embarrassment to the nation after President Buhari was presented with an ‘Attestation of Result’ by a WAEC official on Friday, accompanied by fanfare and photo ops pasted all over the Nigerian media.
Mr. Fayose expressed his displeasure over the event on social media as he tweeted;
“If it was this easy to get WAEC to issue the “Attestation/Confirmation Certificate, why waiting this long? Why contesting four times without a single certificate? So when will the military produce the credentials that he claimed are with them? Many questions begging for answers.
My consolation is that (provided they will allow votes to count) Nigerians will have the opportunity of ending this national embarrassment in 4 months time. I have never seen a nation that has been so embarrassed by a mere question of ‘Mr. President, where are your credentials?” Fayose asked
