Buhari: PDP desperation over my certificate, health beyond my understanding


Former head of state and the Presidential Candidate of All Progressives Congrese (APC), General Mohammadu Buhari, has accused the ruling People Democratic Party (PDP) of desperation and misinformation over his state of his health, certificate issue and alleged Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) fraud under him, saying the desperation beyond his understanding.

…Buhari explained that Obasanjo who set up a committee to investigate the allegation of fraud at PTF has cleared him as far as management and chairmanship of the organization under him was concerned.

Speaking with journalists on Sunday in Abuja, the APC presidential flag bear also debunked what he called fake story concerning his state, saying ?how they got the impression that I was sick I do not know, of course I got cold and that did not stop me from going through my schedule.?

On the PTF issue, Buhari said, ?That one has been cleared. There is no fraud in PTF, there was an investigation and General Obasanjo has answered that question, he confirmed that there was an investigation and the report was brought to him and there was nothing on ground as far as my management and chairmanship of the PTF was concerned. So what else can I say the person who did the investigation because he was the Head of State he cleared me so what else can I say.

On his state of health, he explained that a national daily reported that he was to jet out for medical check up yesterday, ?but here I am. I was at Nasarawa and Benue states yesterday, tomorrow I am going to be in two states. The day after tomorrow in two more states. I am doing two states per day.?

Still on the document flying around regarding his alleged ill health, Buhari said: ?I don?t know of this desperation. The issue we are telling Nigerians is that of corruption in this country for the last 16 PDP has literally destroyed this country. This is the issue and what does my health got to do with that one, I have been sick on daily  basis? And document have been put on paper, on tweeter that I am sick and the ABU said they are forged document. This desperation in beyond my understanding .

While reacting to the issue of certificate, Buhari said: ?Why didn?t Nigerians ask? I have contested three times under the same rules set by the INEC where there is basic eduction qualification you must have and 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.?

He however, alleged that Nigeria as a country is presently broke, adding that ?Even in December most families were hungry during Christmas because could not pay their salary yet they are talking  about the individual health instead of paying the people.?

 When asked to make a categorical statement on his state of health, Buhari jokingly asked the reporter, ? how old are you, 50 year?; I am telling you if we go to the field, you would not last the time I will last in the field.?
