The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it will indeed head to court to seek redress over the controversy surrounding the credentials of the opposition candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, which they have insisted he provide.
“The party is going to court,” Director of PDP Campaign Council (Southwest), Akin Osuntokun, said on Sunrise Daily on Monday, noting that it was a topical issue.
Osuntokun, who appeared on the programme to discuss the 2015 elections, as well as espouse the achievements of the Goodluck Jonathan led administration, insisted that General Buhari’s failure to present his certificate implied that he had none.
He also claimed that contrary to reports that the Nigerian Military admitted that it had copies of the former Head of State’s academic records, the military only said the rule was that they had copies of all who had passed through the organisation.
“Nobody said – Buhari’s certificate is with me,” Osuntokun insisted.
However, it appears the party would have to settle its grievances in court as the electoral umpire, INEC, directed it to the judiciary, to iron out any issues it had regarding the primary school leaving certificate of General Buhari.
