Buhari The Only Illiterate President In The Universe That Requires 13 SAN To Produce His Certificate

Buhari The Illiterate Nigerian President
As the controversy surrounding Buhari’s WASCE certificate lingers, he has employed the services of 13 Senior Advocate of Nigeria and 10 other lawyers for his defence. It would be recalled that an Abuja-based legal practitioner, Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe had earlier dragged Buhari to court, challenging the authenticity of his WAEC result and arguing that he did not meet the educational requirements to contest the Presidential elections.

He alleged that Buhari did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961 as he claimed. Interestingly, on May 26th, Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed Buhari’s preliminary objection to Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe’s suit.

Many well meaning people in the society expected Buhari to show his mere certificate and save himself from the embarrassment of public ridicule. Instead, he went ahead to hire 23-man legal team to defend his claim of a certificate he never had. That is the Nigeria's anti-corruption czar for you! Does anybody need the services of a soothsayer to see for himself the open, smelling rots in the Nigeria's presidency?
A country where Phd holders are ruled by an illiterate without a certificate has something wrong with it.

The hired legal representatives to quell the Buhari’s certificate saga  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.

While we close our noses to protect ourselves from the infectious decay oozing from Nigeria's seat of power, we are even more bewildered that the third arm of government cum the Judiciary has contacted the spreading infection. The number of Senior Advocates involved in a mere case of certificate presentation is so staggering that a curious mind would immediately ask himself, 'why the need for such number of legal luminaries for a simple certificate case?'

But a deeper reflection shows a more serious issue hidden behind the scene. The Judges are more materialistic than moral! They have accepted the services of a man who manipulated Nigeria's electoral laws to the seat of power, probably to defend and retain him in power. Can these lawyers be so quick and in such numbers accept to defend a poor man in the society whose case is not linked to forgery, lies and manipulation as in Buhari's case? The speed at which these lawyers and SANs thronged to the court to defend Buhari's certificate is not only alarming, but indicates the rots in the Judiciary. No poor man, and no innocent person in Nigeria can have the services of such number of lawyers.

The case of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra is a clear contrast here. If the number of lawyers defending a certificate fraudster has defended Kanu, the situation would be different today. The world should now see the true nature of the man who for the past twelve months has held sway under the pretence of anti-corruption crusader that he is not!

Corruption has been the bane of Nigeria politicians. In 1999, Salisu Buhari, a speaker of the House of Representative forged his certificate from the university of Toronto, Canada. Since then, more politicians in Nigeria have been indicted for certificate forgeries and none of these lawyers paying homage to Buhari ever stood for, or talked about it. Today we have another Buhari certificate saga that will certainly go the same path.

The world should see Nigeria as a den of political rogues, liars, cheats, and manipulators, and endorse the recognition and restoration of Biafra. We cannot be ruled by a savage, much more an unlearned one at that.

On Biafra we stand. Let the world hear us!

  1. What a country and people - that elected a former military dictator to be their president. A president without a basic and minimum requirement of West African school leaving certificate to be president. The tyrant hires 23 lawyers to defend his fake and fictitious school leaving certificate. Nigeria is now truly a laughing stock among the comity of nations. This is the more reason, Biafrans must unite and work together to free themselves from this foolishness and stupidity.

    1. One day he who heats buhari will surely die, for the spirit of buhari is powerfull than expectations , while you try to black paint him , nigerians loves him even more. If Buhari can become a peesident without having a kobo for campaign in nigeria only to be sponsored by his enemies and the poor people, why then you can nat realise that its God's will? We suffer hardship but we still pray for him than our selfs .stupid biafrans was it not the northern wealth that was used to build the oil sectors ? You will never learn your lesson untill u try north !
