Listen to article

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has won the certificate forgery case instituted against him by the All Progressives Congress, APC.

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Saturday dismissed the suit filed by APC.

The presiding Justice Ahmed Mohammed who delivered judgment said that the APC failed to prove the forgery allegation beyond reasonable doubt.

The judgment which was slated for 12noon, began at about 1.20pm, when the judge began by first reviewing the testimonies for the two parties.

The APC and one of its members had dragged the Governor to court, alleging that he had submitted a fake University of Ibadan certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to be eligible for the September governorship election.
