Festus Keyamo has once again raised the argument that his boss, the president of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari does not need to have a WAEC certificate to become President.
Naija News reports Keyamo made the remark earlier this week while featuring as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
He said “There are other levels of qualifications to run for the office of President. In fact, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, by the provisions of the constitution, you do not even need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria”.
Keyamo who is director strategic communications of President Muhammadu Buhari, 2019 presidential campaign, in his recent argument stated that even the U.S, Germany & France have NO educational requirement for the office of President.
Even the U.S, Germany & France have NO educational requirement for the office of President. These are HARD FACTS, not my personal view. We need to read the proceedings of the making of these Constitutions to know why they left it that way so our conversations may be more informed https://t.co/tWQRuq7rKI
