Supreme court dismisses APC’s certificate forgery suit against Obaseki
The supreme court has dismissed a certificate forgery suit against governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki
The All Progressives Congress (APC) and Williams Edobor, a chieftain of the party, had filed a suit against Obaseki, accusing him of forging the first degree certificate which he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to enable him contest the governorship election.
But the governor had insisted that the error on the copy of his certificate, which he submitted to INEC, was made by a photocopying machine.
Also, an official of the legal unit of the University of Ibadan, Abayomi Ajayi who was summoned to testify as a defence witness, had told the court that the institution issued a Bachelor of Arts certificate to Obaseki in 1979.
