Certificate Forgery: Governor Obaseki Reacts To Court Judgement, Says Truth Prevailed.
Godwin Obaseki hails the ruling of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on a certificate forgery case. The re-elected governor said though "desperate individuals" tried to undo the will of the people but justice and truth prevailed. He also thanked the Peoples Democratic Party and the people of the state for their support during the court travails.
The governor made this known in a press statement released from his office on Saturday evening.
Earlier on Saturday, a Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed the alleged certificate forgery case filed against Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State. All Progressives Congress and one of its members, Edobor Williams, filed the case. Justice Ahmed Mohammed held that the plaintiffs failed to prove the allegation leveled against the governor.
The judge noted that a Deputy Registrar of the University of Ibadan had given evidence in the suit that the university duly issued the certificate to Governor Godwin Obaseki when he graduated from the institution.
Many Nigerians including former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has also commended the decision of the court.
Atiku on his Twitter handle said: "I congratulate @GovernorObaseki for his victory in the frivolous suit brought against him for certificate forgery."
"Kudos to our great party @OfficialPDPNig and the good people of Edo State for standing firmly by the governor, and protecting their electoral mandate from being torpedoed by anti-democratic forces."
