The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) on Friday condemned the sudden release of a suspicious confirmation of result by the West African Examination Council, WAEC in favour of Buhari few days to the commencement of the suit seeking to disqualify him from the 2019 election.
In a statement available to newsmen In Abuja its Spokesperson, Mr Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere , the Group describe the development as, “very strange, laughable, unbelievable and a desperate effort to mislead the court and shield Buhari from disqualification from participation in the 2019 general election.”
The CUPP called on WAEC to produce the official ledger and booklet containing the scores and records of names of students of the provincial secondary school katsina now called Government Secondary School, who sat for the exam in 1961 and not the manufactured after thought confirmation of result which was not backed with any evidence to show President Buhari participated in the 1961 exams.
It alleged that WAEC succumbed to high-level pressure to issue out the document which was suspicious and aimed at misleading Nigerians and the court to believe President Buhari sat for the WAEC certificate exam when in an actual sense he did not, as there was no evidence to support the assertion.
According to the Group, “let Nigerians be reminded that a few days ago the opposition raised an alarm that there was an ongoing move to tamper with the records of WAEC and pressure the leadership into manufacturing a result for President Buhari
“Today’s action of WAEC have vindicated our earlier fears and confirmed our stand that WAEC is now competing with Oluwole Market in manufacturing document.”
The CUPP challenged WAEC to publicly display the original 1961 ledger and booklet containing the names of the 1961 candidates who sat for the exam from the provincial secondary school Kastina to back up their confirmation of result issued to President Buhari or apologise to Nigerians for attempting to mislead with the booklet and destroy the credibility of the once respected examination body
It made it clear that ” no amount of desperation engineered misinformation can change the mind of Nigerian voters from voting out the incompetent regime of President Buhari that have destroyed the Nigerian economy, divided our people and made our Nation insecure.
