PDP Lacks Integrity To Query Buhari’s Certificate, Says Tinubu

All Progressives Congress (APC) National
Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has
lambasted the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) for calling on the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) to disqualify APC
presidential candidate General Muhammadu
Buhari over certificate issues.
Tinubu, who spoke yesterday during the
APC’s rally in Abeokuta, the Ogun State
capital, described PDP as a “shameless”
He said: “I laugh when the incapable
government of Nigeria, the Poverty
Development Party has nothing to say; they
have the temerity to question the educational
qualification of General Buhari and look for his
certificate. Aaaaaaa! (laughter) Shame on
them… what an insult!.
“The Armed Forces institution… Don’t go
through General Buhari, ask the military.
After all, he went to Army school – from Cadet
School, he got a star. From there, he became
Colonel, dem no talk. Then Major, dem no
talk, from Brigadier General to General, dem
no talk. He went to war and came back, dem
no talk. They (military) sent him to Army
School in London, he passed; you (military)
also sent him to United States where he and
white Americans did left, right, left, he
passed. He came back and was not removed
from the Army. He became Head of State.
Nobody talked about his certificate. Since he
has been contesting for the presidency, no
one complained about his certificate. Now
that we begged him to come and rule, they
are asking for his certificate. I don’t want to
follow a leader who lies.”
Tinubu reiterated that Gen. Buhari is the
right person Nigeria needs at this challenging
“Every nation,” he said, “has a period of
challenges.” “When United States was
challenged, they turned to a war great man,
their ex-military general, Harrison Iowa; when
the French were challenged, they turned to
General Charles de Gaulle; when Britain was
challenged, they turned to their great
general, Winston Churchill. Today, Nigeria is
challenged, economically challenged,
physically challenged and security
challenged; who do we turn to… General
Muhammadu Buhari. He is the real man for
the job; if you talk of military experience, he
has it abundantly; if you talk of courage, he
has it abundantly; if you talk of simplicity, he
has it abundantly; if you talk of great
determination, a combination of mission and
ability to perform, honesty and integrity, he
has it abundantly, abundantly, abundantly…”
Tinubu flayed President Goodluck Jonathan’s
10 million jobs promise made at a campaign
in Ibadan on Monday.
He said: “Today, many of our youths are
unemployed and only yesterday (Monday),
the man (Jonathan) promised 10 million jobs.
He has spent six years without securing jobs
for our children and now you are looking for
votes. Is he a liar or not? Lies have torn their
umbrella. They are failures. Under free
economy aspect, they cannot create jobs for
you. Are you not tired of it? You went to the
university for seven or eight years for a four-
year course. Are you not tired of it? School
fees are becoming a thing of tears. Are you
not tired of it? I can teach them how to
create the jobs locally. We will give you
student loan. Our programme – four years
would be four years. You will not stay beyond
four years before graduating from the
university. By your fourth year, you will be
taken through that critical path.
“You have not been able to create that job for
six years. You assembled our youths at the
stadium in Abuja, Owerri, Enugu, everywhere
and told them to pay for forms; they died
without getting job. You did not show
remorse. Nobody was sacked; and now he is
making another promise. Who are you
deceiving? PDP! Don’t be deceived. If they
want to continue to say we are sadistic, we
are not. Our children are dying. Our nation,
our being, devastated through the hail of
bombs. If your son comes back from school
and says he has failed, you tell him to look for
another job. Jonathan said he has failed; let
him go and look for another job. We don’t
want a President that can’t perform. It is not
his fault; he does not have what it takes to
rule Nigeria. Let him go and rest at home.”
