The battle over who clinches the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the September governorship election in Edo State has heated up again. Pressure on the ruling APC to disqualify the Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, from the race over yet to explain inconsistencies in his certificates, which he displayed at the national secretariat in Abuja.
The All Progressives Congress has made public the certificates of all six governorship aspirants seeking the party’s ticket in Edo State ahead of the primary election. However, the incumbent Governor Obaseki did not past his WAEC judging by today standard set by JAMB. In order to gain admission into the university, a candidate must obtain a least 5 credits including Maths and English to be able to sit for JAMB. For our assessment Governor, Obaseki did not meet up with these requirements.
According to the document placed on the notice board of the party at the National Secretariat in Abuja, Governor Obaseki has three credits and three passes in his 1973 West Africa Examination Council test submitted for screening.
The subjects Obaseki passed include English P7, Literature P7, CRK C6, History A3, Geography C6 and Chemistry P8.
Obaseki thereafter proceeded to the Institute of Continuous Education between 1976-1979 before gaining admission into the University of Ibadan, where he studied Classics.
