- An activist has called for an end in clout chasing President Muhammadu Buhari's secondary school certificate issue
- The activist said the cyberattack on the president over his WAEC certificate is unnecessary
- According to the activist, ndigbo should focus on succeeding President Buhari in 2023
An activist has warned Igbos against every tendency of chasing after President Muhammadu Buhari's certificate saga.
The executive secretary of Anti-Corruption and Research-Based Data Initiative (ARDI), Dennis Aghanya, warned Igbos against any further cyberattack on the president.
Aghanya urged the Igbos to focus more on planning out succession strategy from the president in 2023.
The Guardian reports that Aghanya in a statement said: “Nd’Igbo should desist from this self-destructive tendency by chasing after Buhari’s certificate and strategize for the 2023 presidency."
Reacting to the tribunal judgement by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, Aghanya commended the Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, for applying "political wisdom in congratulating the president over his victory against PDP's Atiku Abubakar."
Urging the Igbos to concentrate on 2023 presidency, Aghanya said: "The north and southwest are already strategising respectively on how to outsmart each other to clinch the ticket come 2023, but here we are occupying ourselves with the quest for President Buhari’s certificate."
"This is not good enough for us as a component part of the Nigerian federation. There is competition among the various tribes and we must desist from chasing shadows when others are chasing substance," he added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that PDP governors have backed Atiku Abubakar's plan to challenge the judgement of the PEPT at the Supreme Court.
The chairman of the PDP's Governors' Forum, Seriake Dickson, said failure to challenge the tribunal's judgement would affect Nigeria's democracy negatively.
