“Only one certificate was issued to Obaseki” – University of Ibadan


The University of Ibadan has stated that they only issued one certificate to the governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki.

The All Progressive Congress had initially pointed out that they noticed discrepancies in the governor’s university certificates and on that basis disqualified the governor from participating in the state primary elections.

The National Working Committee of the All Progressive Congress lead by National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, on Saturday, received the statement from the APC Screening Appeal Committee led by Abubakar Fari, which said, “It is inconceivable that the same University will award two certificates with separate dates for the same graduate.

“We also find it difficult to vouch for the authenticity of his National Youth Service Corps certificate, there is no indication as to where he served. We find that he should be disqualified.”

Adams Oshiomole congratulated the committee on a job well done.

He said “It appears you were extremely meticulous to details and you justified ours – not in terms of your findings but in terms of what you were able to amplify. That you have an eye for very important details.

“We are happy you were able to finish this work timeously. This is the final appeal level, what is left now is the NWC will meet and take a decision one way or the other,” he said.

However, the registrar of the University of Ibadan, Olubunmi Faluyi maintained that governor Obaseki is an Alumnus of the institution.

The registrar said the University maintains it’s stand in an earlier statement that “Obaseki gained admission to the University in 1976 and graduated in 1979 with a Second Class Honours, Lower Division. Records of his Admission and Graduation are intact in the archives of the University.”

The statement was also corroborated by the Director of Public Communications, Olatunji Oladejo, that the claims of the All progressive congress regarding governor Obaseki are totally false.
