Obaseki Dragged To Court For Certificate Forgery

In the suit filed before a federal high court in , Edobor Williams, Ugbesia Abudu Godwin and Amedu Dauda Anakhu accused the governor of forging his Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) certificate in classical studies from the University of Ibadan.

They said the offence contravenes section 182(1)(i) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999, which therefore makes Obaseki “not qualified to run or seek the office of the governor of Edo state” in the forthcoming 2020 governorship election.

In an interview with Daily Trust, Alex Ejesieme, counsel to the governor, described the suit as frivolous and irrelevant.

He said the defence team is preparing the reply to challenge the plaintiffs in court next week.
