The All Progressives Congress says it will appeal the court’s dismissal of its certificate forgery case against Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki.

Law Reporters had earlier reported that Obaseki had on Saturday emerged victorious as Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed the certificate forgery case filed against him by the APC and a member of the party, Edobor Williams.

The judge, however, declined to award cost against any party.

The APC and Williams had, in the suit alleged that Obaseki forged his West African School Certificate O/level and A/level.

According to them, the first-degree certificate from the University of Ibadan which the governor submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission in the September 19, 2020 governorship election was forged.

They, therefore, prayed the court to disqualify Obaseki for allegedly breaching Section 31 (5) and (6) of the Electoral Act and Section 182(1)(J) of the constitution.

Delivering his judgment, Justice Mohammed held that the plaintiffs failed to discharge the burden of proof required of them under the law.
