All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, fired back at reports about his medical fitness and educational qualification.. He said it was all a ploy by the PDP to distract from the core campaign issues of corruption and incompetent leadership.Buhari who was reported to have flown to the USA held a press conference in Abuja yesterday...
“I was at Nasarawa and Benue states yesterday (Saturday). Tomorrow I am going to be in two states. The day after tomorrow in two more states. I am doing two states per day. How they got the impression that I was sick I do not know although I got cold and that did not stop me from going through my schedule.
“I don’t know of this desperation. The issue we are telling Nigerians is that of corruption in this country for the last 16 years PDP has literally destroyed this country. This is the issue and what has my health got to do with that one?
“Document have been put in the papers, on twitter that I am sick but the ABU said they are forged documents. This desperation is beyond my understanding.”
When a reporter asked him to make a categorical statement on his state of health, Buhari jokingly asked the reporter:
“How old are you? 50 years? I am telling you if we go to the field, you would not last the time I will last in the field.”
On his certificates..he said
“I have contested three times under the same rules set by the INEC. I was allowed to contest all these elections because my certificate was in order and there were individuals that wrote to the United States War College and the college answered them and it was published by some of your papers. So really this desperation of misinformation that is being passed around will do nobody any good because our minds are being taken away from the serious issues of corruption and incompetence by the PDP”
