“I’m far more educationally qualified than Atiku” – President Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has accused the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, of not possessing the statutory educational qualification to contest the February 23, 2019 election.
In his counter-accusation, Buhari dared Atiku to produce his “educational certificates, indicating the schools attended by him, with dates,” before the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.
He said Atiku made conflicting claims to the tribunal by claiming he won the election and at the same time challenged the entire result of the same election.
Buhari argued that “by virtue of Section of 137 of the Electoral Act, petitioners cannot question the results of elections in states where they claim to have won and still retain themselves as petitioners” and urged the tribunal to dismiss the petition.
