President Buhari’s WAEC certificate saga is dead.
The lawyer who sued president Buhari has filed a notice at the Federal High Court in Abuja to discontinue the case he brought against PMB.
The legal practitioner, Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, had opined that PMB was not qualified to occupy the position of a President.
Nwokocha said his reason is because PMB did not sit for the Cambridge West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961 as he claimed.
The notice was titled: “Take note that the plaintiff in this originating summons, Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe, hereby discontinues this action.”
When asked why he withdrew the case, Mr. Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe said he received death threaths from very powerful people.
According to Nwokocha, “I am concerned and my family and friends are too.
“I am not naïve and some subtle threats have already been made.
“For now it is small comfort that if anything happens to me, even if disguised as an accident or anything, Nigerians will know exactly who is responsible.
“In any case, it was Professor Wole Soyinka, I think, who once said in one of his books that ‘The Man Dies in Him Who Keeps Quiet in The Face of Tyranny’ or something of the sort.
“Speaking of which, I am amazed at the conspiracy of silence by Nigerians.
“It is astounding how all of our civil society advocates and activists have gone deaf and dumb in the face of tyranny.
“All those voluble persons who pretend they are activists or keepers of the moral conscience of the nation astonishingly can’t see or appreciate what is happening.
“This country really misses Chief Gani Fawehinmi; he was the only fearless, credible, true and genuine conscience of the nation.
“Not the pretenders we have today.
“All the others only make noise when it suits them and their interests but look the other way once they are compromised.
“None of us today, can tie Gani’s shoe-laces.”
The trial Judge, Justice Ademola Adeniyi has already agreed to quickly strike out the case, making it permanently dead.
