Appeal court dismisses APC’s certificate forgery suit against Obaseki
The Court of Appeal (Abuja Division), on Thursday, dismissed the alleged certificate forgery case filed by the All Progressives Congress, against Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki.
Justice Stephen Adah held that the lower court was right in its findings and conclusion in the suit.
The testimony of the Deputy Registrar (Legal), of the University of Ibadan, Abayomi Ajayi, who confirmed that Obaseki attended the University in 1976 was upheld by the judge.
According to Justice Adah, the evidence of the Deputy Registrar was direct in showing that Obaseki did not forge any of the certificates he submitted to the INEC.
Justice Adah dismissed the suit for lacking in merit and awarded N250,000 cost in favour of governor Obaseki
Recall that the the All Progressives Congress had filed a suit against Obaseki alleging that the University of Ibadan Degree Certificate presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission by Obaseki, was forged.
