Below are the headlines found on The Vanguard Online Newspaper for today, Saturday, 9th December, 2017.

Sat, 09 Dec 2017

In 2015, Governor Fayose told us about his 74 year old mother and her diapers.  He was desperate to paint the picture that a 73-year old would be too frail, too demented, to be president.  He bought front pages of  some national newspapers. He made  Buhari  the butt of deathly geriatric  jokes. In a few months, he would  return to the soap box.  Fayose would ( tell people to vote  for  a 73-year-old Atiku. Atiku would be 73 in 2019.  I  believe Atiku is fit. But  the Fayoses of the PDP would have to repackage  their tales.

2019 can’t come too soon.  The PDP would  have to campaign  without mentioning certificates. In 2015, the PDP had a candidate  who flaunted a PhD. So they mocked Buhari. They said he didn’t have the required academic qualification to contest for president. They were not persuaded that he had  passed the senior officer’s course at the United States War College. In 2019,  the PDP would have to sell Atiku and his certificates. Atiku  Abubakar owns a  miserable grade 3 WAEC certificate. His certificate was so pale it couldn’t keep him in the Police College  where  he had been admitted. Atiku Abuabkar  had failed  O level  mathematics. The PDP and  Atiku can  burnish that  diploma from the Kano  school of hygiene. They could tell us that the Kano school of hygiene is an ivy league school.
