<!– Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki –>
By Taiwo Okanlawon
The Management of University of Ibadan (UI) has confirmed that the Edo state governor, Mr Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, graduated from the institution.
According to a statement by the university’s Registrar, Mrs Olubunmi Faluyi, the Governor gained admission to the university in 1976 and graduated in 1979 with a Second Class Honours (Lower Division) in Classics.
“Records of his admission and graduation are intact in the archives of the university.” the statement said.
The case was filed on 29 May.
The plaintiffs in the case, according to a report by Independent, are Edobor Williams, Ugbesia Abudu Godwin and Amedu Dauda Anakhu.
Governor Obaseki has however, dismissed the allegations of certificate fraud as baseless, unfounded, and diversionary, calling those raising eyebrows over his academic qualifications, as mischievous.
Obaseki has been in a running battle with his predecessor Adams Oshiomhole over the second term ticket. The latter, who is the National Chairman of the APC, has vowed to ensure the governor does not get a second term in office.
