The West African Examinations Council, WAEC, has confirmed that an appointee of the Nigerian Vice President entered university using “fake, not genuine” results.
Okoi Obono-Obla, who was appointed by Professor Yemi Osinbajo as Chairman, Special Presidential Investigative Panel for the Recovery of Property did not seat English Literature but claimed to have scored C6, Deputy Registrar Femi Ola said to a House of Representatives ad hoc Panel.
A committee was set up in the lower chamber to investigate Mr Obono-Obla over alleged forgery.
Mr Ola said: “Considering the results, particularly on what is before me, I would say what I have brought here is the authentic and genuine one; his is not because it has been altered and such alteration renders it invalid
“From our record, the genuine candidate is Ofem Okoi Ofem, 09403/247 of Mary Knoll College, Ogoja. The exam number and number of subjects are the same.
“The difference is the grade in English literature in which he claimed to have scored C6 despite being marked absent in the true, certified copy,” the representative for the exam body said.
