The University of Ibadan has confirmed to the Federal High Court in Abuja, that it issued a Bachelor of Arts certificate to Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, in 1979.

The University, which was summoned through a subpoena, said it was not true that Obaseki forged the certificate he attached to Form EC9 (Nomination Form), which he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, for the purpose of the gubernatorial election that held in Edo State on September 19, 2020.

The school, which appeared as the second witness, DW-2, on the day Obaseki opened his defence to the certificate forgery suit the All Progressives Congress, APC, instituted against him, was represented by its Deputy Registrar Legal, Abayomi Ajayi.

Ajayi said he was in court on the strength of the subpoena that was served on the Registrar of the University.

The subpoena was admitted in evidence and marked as Exhibit D6.

Asked under cross-examination to confirm that the copy Obaseki attached to the nomination form he submitted to INEC was forged, the witness said he would not regard it as forged, but an incomplete photocopy.
