The governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, will today, Tuesday, January 5, open his defence before an Abuja federal court.
The Sun reports that the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a suit, accused the governor of forging his University of Ibadan degree certificate.
Wothappen.com gathered that the suit was filed by the APC and one of its chieftains, Williams Edobor.
The court had at its last sitting on Thursday, December 31, 2020, adjourned to Monday, January 4, for the cross-examination of the fourth plaintiffs’ witness, one Raphael Onwuzuligbo, a retired police officer and a forensic document examiner.
Onwuzuligbo told the court how he was engaged by one Faithful Steward to examine documents relating to the certificate of Governor Obaseki being contested.
He, however, said he did not know if the INEC issues certificates belonging to the University of Ibadan.
