A Federal High Court in Abuja on Saturday has dismissed the alleged certificate forgery case filed against Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state.
The case was filed by the Edo State All Progressives Congress and one of its members, Edobor Williams.
The judgement, which was delivered by Justice Ahmed Mohammed said the plaintiffs failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Gov. Obaseki forged his academic certificates that he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission prior to the September 19, 2019 governorship election in the state.
The judge observed that the plaintiffs did not make efforts to cross-check from the institutions where the Governor attended.
The Next Edition reported that Obaseki attended the University of Ibadan, which officials had appeared before the court to confirm that the certificate was not forged.
