“Buhari is a sincere leader. Buhari is an epitome of transparency. Buhari is a very honest statesman, so what is this noise about him having a secondary school certificate or not?”
This was the question an Abuja (Nigeria’s FederalCapital city) based international business woman and fabric merchant, Princess Bunmi Jegede threw up early in the week over the raging allegation that President Muhammad Buhari has no WASC School Leaving Certificate which is said to be a basic neccessity in the constituion for anybody aimimg to rule Nigeria. The case which was instituted by a lawyer, Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe was droped some 48 hours ago but the heat generated by the suit has continued un-abated.
The Iwaraja-Ilesa-Osun State (South Western Nigeria) born Princess Bunmi Jegede expressed her disatisfaction over the inability of Nigerians to see the goodness in President Buhari’s leadership atributes rather than certificate. Speaking to a group of business women who visited her Asokoro Abuja residence early in the week Princess Jegede said “I think it is the heigh of insensitivity for someone to start harrassing Mr. President over one useless certificate issue that does not amount to capacity building or anything near good leadership skills. What is in a certificate compared to Mr. President’s good intention and leadership ability?” Princess Jegede asked.
The founder of Honey Bee Textiles Ltd warned Nigerians not to make the mistake of using a small portion of fart to mess up the beauty of their buttocks “I want to tell Nigerians that we are very lucky to have President Mohammad Buhari leading this country at this material time and we must be grateful to God for this opportunity. Buhari has been a responsible statesman and soldier in the last 5 decades of his life. He has managed bigger positions and very rigorious assignments and he didn’t falter. He was a former Governor of the Northern Eastern States of Nigeria; he was a former minister of Petroleum resources in this country. And history has it that it was during his tenure as minister of petroleum that Nigeria took the good decision to build three refineries. Did he do that with the intellect of a school leaving certificate or with that of a talented administrator?” Princess Jegede asked.
“Durimg his campaign, we told you that even if President Buhari presents a toilet paper as his certificate, we will vote for him. If he presents just his NEPA bill, we will vote hm and that is what we did. So, what is the stress all about?”

She spoke further on the good qualities of President Buhari “I am sure we all know that this man has no any other credibility than his spartan virtues and his deep hatred for corruption. Between 1983 and 1985, he tranformed the national psyche of Nigerians with his War Against Indiscipline concept. He and his partner, the late General Tunde Idiagbon did a transformation that was second to none in the history of Nigeria. For the first time in the history of Nigeria, we had people behaved well and conducted themselves transparently. Did he achieve that with a school leaving certificate? Somebody should answer that question. Today he is back, not by his own power but by the power of God. He has successfu help Nigeria to retrieve a large portion of our stolen wealth from all nooks and crannies of Nigeria and he is taking bold steps to retrieve the ones abroad. President Buhari has taken a deep passion in returning normalcy to public life. Can you imagine the level of atrocities commited by people in government during the last regime of President Jonathan? A minster of Petroleum stole our wealth so blind to the extent that we are hearing that she has returned N90 billion naira. Do you know what N90 billion can do to our education sector alone? Do you know what N90 billion will do to skills arquisition program and employement schemes across States? I think those who are asking for Mr. President’s school leaving certificate at this critical moment of our history are confused”
Princess Bunmi Jedege who has a degree in Sociology from the University of Abuja listed some of the reasons why Nigerians must allow President Buhari to continue “I think Nigerians should go and start studying their leaders. A man who does not have School Certificate and wouln’t steal your common wealth is better than a man who has doctorate degree and will loot your common wealth with reckless abandon. The last man who ruled us was a doctorate degree holder but see the way he used his degree to loot and stole Nigeria’s common wealth. He nearly sold our country off to the winds if not for the miracle of March 28, 2015 when Nigerians jointly said NO to his regime of mass loot. So, if we have appointed a man who can change our destiny for good, why do we start castigating him over an irrelevant issue like school leaving certificate?. Our people make laugh at times; is good leadership about school leaving certificates? What certificate did Moses posses in the Bible before he could lead the israelites out of Egypt? Did anyone asked Moses for his certificate to be able to take the Israelites across the red sea? I think people raising issue on this School Cert thing are blind and hungry. You know it is a double trajedy to be blind and at the same time hungry. It is never a good experience”
The International business woman and enthusiast of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) urged Nigerians to continue to support President Buhari as his leadership promises great reward for Nigeria and Nigerians in the long run “He (Buhari) is the only leader that can help us regain our sanity and that he is doing gradually. With him I can see a new Nigeria filled with great hope and opportunities; a Nigeria that will be socially and economically stable as the United States of America where the young ones are catered for through several welfare schemes and senior citizens through several pension schemes that will make them live longer. Under Goodluck Jonathan, a civil servant (Maina) looted billions of senior citizen’s pension and ran away with it yet Jonathan has a doctorate degree but a man who does not have a doctorate degree is now chassing the looters and recovering our loots and yet we are raising dust over one useless paper called WASC or whatever you call it. Durimg his campaign, we told you that even if President Buhari presents a toilet paper as his certificate, we will vote for him. If he presents just his NEPA bill, we will vote hm and that is what we did. So, what is the stress all about?”
“ I don’t want to say Nigerians are ungrateful people because I am equally a Nigerian but all I will say is that we should mind our emotions. Things could be worse for the economy now, but tell me, how do you change something without that thing going through the process of change?. Even if you want to lose a mass of weight from your body you will go through some tough moments before you can achieve good health. Nigeria as a country is shedding her old weight of corruption and bad governance and that is the reason why we are moaning. Trust me, President Buhari has more than enough capacity to change the fortune of this country. He has the right sense of leadership. He has the right team to work with. He has the sheer determination to see things change and with his present reforms in the political sector, his anti-corrupton war, we have no reason to panic as the future is bright for Nigerians”.
Princess Jegede gave a final word to Nigerian women “I encourage all women in Nigeria, no matter the hardship in the land, please, pray for this president. You might not have this opportunity again in a very long while. Since we have it now, let us protect it. Let us value it. Let us admire it. Let us cherish it and Nigeria will be a great nation again. Not for us alone but for our children and entire household” Jegede concluded.
