Keyamo had in an interview on Sunday claimed that under the Nigerian constitution, one does not need a WAEC certificate to become President of Nigeria.
According to him, if you have occupied the public office for a reasonable length of time, you do not need a WAEC certificate to become president of Nigeria.
But reacting, Nnamdi Kanu in a tweet on Monday, described Nigeria law as a ‘joke’.
He said, “It is worrying when supposed senior judges and lawyers, including Senior Advocates, don’t know their School Certificate from their First School Leaving Certificate.
“Law in Nigeria is a joke! No School Certificate (WAEC) no presidency, Period!”
