<!– Godwin Obaseki, Edo State Governor: My certificates are genuine –>
By Jethro Ibileke/Benin
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has described those raising eyebrows over his academic qualifications, as mischievous.
He also dismissed the allegations of certificate fraud as baseless, unfounded and diversionary.
Obaseki’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, challenged the accusers to approach the issuing institutions to verify the authenticity of the particulars.
Osagie in a statement, said Obaseki duly earned his certificates from the different educational institutions he attended.
He said those raising issues about them are only being mischievous.
“The hullabaloo over the Governor’s certificates is a lame and weak effort to cause crisis and stir unnecessary controversy.
The Governor’s displayed results are duly earned from the institutions he attended.
“If any individual or group of persons have issues with the results, they are free to approach the institutions to make enquiries as regards the authenticity of the particulars.
“They are free to go to St. Mathews Anglican Primary School; Eghosa Grammar School, the University of Ibadan (UI) and others, to verify the results.”
On issues over how the governor gained admission to the University of Ibadan with his results, Osagie said, “the criteria for admission is the sole preserve of the institution and anyone with issues over the criteria can also approach the institution for clarification.
“It is not the place of a political party to query an institution over the requirement for admitting its students,” he added.
