Gov. Obaseki Reacts As University Of Ibadan Confirms Certificate

The Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, has reacted to the confirmation by the University of Ibadan, UI that he graduated from the institution.

There had been a series of speculations flying around that the Edo state governor forged his certificate. The rumour was further fueled when the APC national chairman Adams Oshiomhole challenged the authenticity of the embattled governor’s university degree certificate.

While inaugurating the APC’s screening and appeal committees for its members contesting the governorship primary in Edo, Oshiomhole was quoted to have said:

“Someone should approach the UI and end this matter once and for all. “If the certificate Obaseki parades is that of the UI, find out how did he pass senate screening of those days? I’m aware that in those days when this man never dreamt of becoming a governor, every student, no matter your status or your family name, must pass screening.”

However, the management of University of Ibadan, UI in a statement by its Registrar, Olubunmi Faluyi, confirmed that the governor graduated from the institution, adding that he studied Classics.

“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,” Faluyi said.

In his reaction to the University of Ibadan, UI’s confirmation of his studentship, gov. Godwin Obaseki tweeted via his official Twitter handle: “Posterity will always vindicate the just.”
