The registrar at the prestigious University of Ibadan, UI, has confirmed that Godwin Obaseki, the Governor of Edo graduated from the school.
Olubunmi Faluyi, said that “Mr Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, the Governor of Edo State graduated in 1979 with a Second Class Honours, Lower Division.”
The school’s registrar made the confirmation, following a slide remark by Adams Oshiomhole, a former of Governor of the state, who handed over to Governor Obaseki, stated that “if the certificate Obaseki parades is that of the UI, find out how did he pass senate screening of those days?”
Mr Oshiomhole, who is now the chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, the party which Governor Obaseki is a member and is seeking to run a second term, has been at loggerhead with his successor.
The APC Chairman who is said to be on a path to destroy the party, does not want Governor Obaseki to get a second term.
Although the APC Chairman, a two-term Governor, he is bent on giving the ticket to a former member of the opposition party.
Today, he questioned the university certificate of his successor, saying “someone should approach the UI and end this matter once and for all. If the certificate Obaseki parades is that of the UI, find out how did he pass senate screening of those days?
I’m aware that in those days when this man never dreamt of becoming a governor, every student, no matter your status or your family name, must pass the screening,” he said.
But, the institution has put to bed such frivolous statement made by APC chairman.
According to Mr Faluyi, “Mr Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, the Governor of Edo State graduated from the University of Ibadan where he studied Classics,” the statement read.
“Obaseki gained admission to the University in 1976 and graduated in 1979 with a Second Class Honours, Lower Division.
“Records of his Admission and Graduation are intact in the archives of the University.”
