PDP Lists Out the 'Lies' in Buhari's Certificate + My Opinion

I think instead of spending unreasonable time trying to prove who is wrong and/or who is right, who has a certificate and who doesn't, our politicians should concentrate on finding the needs of the people and meeting it. Jonathan says Buhari doesn't have a certificate, Buhari tries to prove him wrong by providing the certificate. PDP listing out the lies and all that, Buhari saying trash about Jonathan, Jonathan calling Buhari names; all these are childish to me.

How are we so sure you guys can even lead us right. I sometimes feel we live in a nation where the followers are wiser than the leaders cum politicians.
