Competence and Passion for Development Trump Mere Certificates: Debunking the APC’s Malicious Article on Murtala Yakubu Ajaka


Recently, a malicious article published by the All Progressive Congress (APC) attempted to undermine the credibility and competence of Murtala Yakubu Ajaka by suggesting that he had only submitted a secondary school certificate. Such a baseless attack on a candidate’s qualifications undermines the essence of true leadership, which lies in competence, passion for development, and a vision for progress. This article aims to debunk these unfounded claims and highlight the importance of focusing on qualities that truly matter for the betterment of society.

Competence: Beyond Paper Qualifications

While formal education undoubtedly plays a crucial role in shaping an individual’s knowledge and skills, it is essential to recognize that competence extends beyond mere certificates. Competence encompasses a wide range of qualities, such as critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, effective communication, and a track record of accomplishments.

Murtala Yakubu Ajaka’s experience in various leadership positions, both within the public and private sectors, speaks volumes about his competence. He has consistently demonstrated his ability to drive positive change, implement innovative policies, and foster collaboration between different stakeholders for the betterment of communities. These achievements are testament to his ability to deliver results, regardless of the level of formal education he possesses.

Passion for Development: A Catalyst for Progress

A passion for development and a genuine desire to uplift communities is a characteristic that should be valued above all else in a leader. True leaders are driven by a vision to create positive change, to address societal challenges, and to improve the lives of those they serve.

Murtala Yakubu Ajaka’s unwavering dedication to the development of his community is well-known. His initiatives to empower youth through skills acquisition programs, his focus on sustainable infrastructure development, and his commitment to healthcare access for all are all reflective of his passion for the betterment of society. These qualities demonstrate that his leadership is fueled by a genuine desire to make a difference, and that he is well-equipped to address the needs and aspirations of the people he represents.

Beyond Mere Certificates: A Call for Balanced Evaluation

While formal education is undoubtedly important and should not be discounted, it should not be the sole criterion by which we evaluate leaders. Merely focusing on certificates can overlook individuals who possess the necessary qualities and skills to effect positive change, but may not have had the same access to educational opportunities as others.

A balanced evaluation of leadership candidates should consider a holistic view of their abilities, accomplishments, and their commitment to the development and progress of their communities. This ensures that those who have the passion, dedication, and expertise required for effective leadership are given the opportunity to serve.


The malicious article published by the APC, suggesting that Murtala Yakubu Ajaka only submitted a secondary school certificate, is a clear attempt to undermine his credibility and divert attention from his demonstrated competence and passion for development. True leadership lies not in mere certificates, but in a combination of competence, vision, and dedication to the welfare of the people.

As responsible citizens, we must reject the narrow-minded focus on certificates and instead prioritize evaluating leaders based on their abilities to bring about meaningful change. Murtala Yakubu Ajaka’s track record speaks for itself, and his commitment to development and progress makes him a formidable candidate deserving of support. Let us focus on what truly matters: competence, passion, and a genuine desire to create a better society for all.
