‘Buhari Show Your WAEC Certificate!’ Nigerians Express Outrage On Twitter [TOP TWEETS]



Outrage greeted the news that Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has hired 13 senior lawyers to defend him in a suit at a federal high court in Abuja challenging his eligibility for the office of president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria over his failure to present his WAEC certificate.
The president’s legal team is made up of 13 senior advocates of Nigeria, SAN, and is led by Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN).  The other lawyers on Buhari’s defence team are Mr. Lateef O. Fagbemi (SAN), Chief Akin Olujinmi (SAN), Oluwarotimi O. Akeredolu (SAN), Kola Awodein (SAN), Prof. Taiwo Osipitan (SAN), Charles Edosomwan (SAN), Emeka Ngige (SAN), Femi Atoyebi (SAN), Femi Falana (SAN), Funke Aboyade (SAN), H.O. Afolabi (SAN), Muiz Banire (SAN). Ten other lawyers are on the team.
An Abuja-based lawyer, Mr. Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe is challenging Buhari’s eligibility to contest for the office of president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria because he did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961 as he claimed in his form submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Nigerians took to social media to express their disappointment and anger that their president would fail to present a basic education certificate for secondary school. Buhari had sworn an oath while filing his form at the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in 2014 that his original school certificates were with the military board. The Nigerian Army had issued a statement denying being in possession of the retired general’s certificates in the heat of the 2015 elections.

Below are some of the messages on microblogging website Twitter using the hashtag, #PMBShowUsYourCertificate and #PMBShowUsUrCertificate.
Highest form of corruption is certificate forgery. That is the root of all other forms of corruption.. 
A legal fee paid for only 1 SAN will do the needful to search for your certificate even if it in Pluto. 
He that must come to equity must come with clean hands@MBuhariyaya kasua?
Corruption fighter why this cert saga?
My International associates have inundated me with calls and mockery that our President has no WAEC certificate.
Buhari is using a Corrupt Judge to Fight Saraki and also a Fake Result to Lead Nigeria 
This is how to show ur certificate not with15 SANs,Buhari show ur certificate now 

Pretends to be frugal but rather than show his WAEC CERTIFICATE, hires  for defence. 

Buhari’s certificate issue again, we shouted enough during campaign but they wouldn’t listen 👂.Shame on @APCNigeria
Under oath, he claimed that all his certificates are with the Secretary to the Military Board. 
Now that he is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, why can’t he force the military to release it. 

The Court asked for Certificate Buhari gave them 13 SANs
Showing that He don’t have any. Shame!
Nigerians this morning ask @MBUhari @NGRPresident to make his certificate available for all to see 
We are not playing opposition here. We are simply asking for a common WAEC certificate. @MBuhari Mr Integrity.

Is either Buhari sat for WASC but did not make the minimum qualification and doesn’t want to expose himself.
Except if Buhari’s waec certificate is stored jupither or pluto, if not just bring out the certificate. 
I dont understand Buhari again..
You swore on your integrity that you have your certificate..
why contract 15 SANs?
What is there why are you hiding your certificate and stop this long protocol
13 SANs, 11 lawyers, costing N10bn cannot produce ordinary waec. Strong thing 
Court: Do you have WASC?
Buhari: I have 10 SANs.

This no be O’level matter again.

The Man that said lawyers should not defend alleged looters is now hiring battalion of lawyers to defend fraud

 if Buhari can’t show us his cert,it means He is corrupt;simple! Nigeria is too complex to be ruled by illiterates.
I blame the stupid lawyers that wasted years in school only to be hired by a man with no certificate
I will be the happiest Nigerian if our president shows us his acclaimed WAEC certificate. 
Dear PMB,
Education is vital.I shall be willing to sponsor ur WAEC exam registration fee if u wish to sit for it.
 Waec has 9 papers and you hired 13 SAN’s; wouldn’t it hav been better if each of them wrote a paper for you? Fraud
@MBuhari certificate forgery shows d depth of incompetence in@AttahiruJega_ & INEC.Both knew he was an illiterate

Someone who doesn’t have ordinary WAEC certificate may not understand what devaluation is. 
only in ds country you see professor like Soyinka praise a illiterate over a  holder
The same @MBuhari that is broke and couldn’t buy APC’s presidential form is now capable of hiring 15 SANS

Even if you don’t have first degree show us your WAEC certificate
Wen it comes to doing d Brain work Buhari hired Yoruba & Igbo SANs, not a single Fulani SAN 

Where was Buhari when other past military heads were quickly going back to school to secure a certificate 

No wonder our economy is currently in comatose! A president with no SSCE certificate
