Certificate Saga: Stop threatening Nwolocha-Ahaaiwe, Group tells Presidency


A human rights group in Nigeria, the Centre for Human Rights and
Social Justice (CHRSJ) has warned the Presidency under the headship of
President Muhammadu Buhari against the threatening of a Private
Lawyer, Barrister Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe over his stance on the case
instituted against President Buhari for alleged lack of prerequisite
West Africa School Certificate (WASC) to contest the March 28, 2015
Presidential election, insisting that Buhari lacked the least
requirement of School Certificate to stand for the election as
required by Form CF001 of the Independent National Electoral

It disclosed that this  issue of Certificate forgery would continue
reoccurrence until President Buhari presented his acclaimed School
Certificate to the whole world which it should not different in
contents from the ‘Statement of Results’ shown to the whole world in
February 2015 during a purported Press conference at the wake of 2015
Presidential election, recalling that the First Speaker of the House
of Representatives, Mr. Salisu Buhari in this political dispensation
were removed from office and hallow Chamber of the National Assembly
as a result of Toronto University Certificate forgery .

Reacting to the threat of the Presidency by its Spokesperson, Mr.
Garba Sheu against Nwolocha-Ahaaiwe , through a signed statement by
the CHRSJ’s Executive Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman which
a copy was made available to newsmen on Monday, stated that no amount
of threat from the Presidency against the courageous Legal
Practitioner, could stop the truth of the matter before the  Court of
Competent jurisdiction, Presided over by Justice Adeniyi Ademola.

Rights activist who urged President Buhari to tender unreserved
apology for the great stigma he brought to the country as a result of
his failure to present the acclaimed West Africa School Certificate
(WASC) to the public by taking the honourable step of tendering his
voluntary resignation from office of the President, saying that the
era of impunity has become the thing of the past in the land.

Speaking further on the threat issue against Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, Comrade
Sulaiman who saluted the courage of the Abuja based Legal
Practitioner, maintaining that Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe has put himself in the
shoe of our late Legal giant and  fearless, credible, incorruptible,
genuine social crusader and conscience of the nation, Chief Gani
Fawehinmi,SAM,SAN, throwing the group weight behind the genuine cause
of the Certificate saga of Mr. President, adding that this was the
reason why, the British Prime Minister, Mr. David Cameroon called
Nigeria, a fantastically corrupt country recently.

According to him, “This is high time we call a spade a spade. The well
meaning Nigerians, particularly, the Northern leaders should tell
President Muhamamdu Buhari to present his Cambridge WASC certificate
to the public as being claimed in the INEC Form CF001.From all
indications, President Buhari did not sit for the west Africa School
Certificate(WASC) Examination and Buhari just joined the Nigeria Army
with a ‘Letter of Recommendation’ from his Principal instead of School
Certificate.This is a fraud of highest order which should not be
allowed to stand during this hard earned democratic era. Mr. Salishu
Buhari was just removed from the Lower Chamber of the National
Assembly because of Toronto forgery Certificate Saga at the wake of
this current democratic dispensation. President Buhari should just
tender his voluntary resignation because he did not qualify to contest
for the election at the initial stage. The lack of educational
qualification of the President really shows in the way and manner the
country is being governed presently.

“With this development, Buhari has committed a criminal offence of not
being able to provide the original certificate of his acclaimed
‘WASC’s Statement of Result’. Barrister Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe has
constitutional rights to express his opinion on any issue of national
importance like this nature. This is how some hoodlums were physically
attacked late Chief Gani Fawehinmi at the High Court Premises in Lagos
State during the trial of alleged Chicagogate forgery case against the
then Lagos State governor, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.

He faulted the nation’s electoral body under the then Chairman,
Professor Attahiru Jegga for not disqualifying Buhari from the
presidential race of March 28, 2015 election, noting that this
development shown the level of compromise by the electoral body during
the run-up to the election, describing the threat by the Presidency as
a ruse, undemocratic, satanic and unconstitutional which was against
the tenets of democracy.

Sulaiman who doubles as Chairman, Civil Societies Coalition for the
Emancipation of Osun State (CSCEOS), then called on the authority of
the security agencies in the land to beef up security around the
Barrister Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, noting that Presidency should be held
responsible if anything bad happened to the legal luminary, adding
that the genuine pro-democracy activists would not allow President
Buhari and his co-travelers to return the country back to the despotic
military dark days.
