The View pictures in App save up to 80% data. Federal High Court at the FCT has dismissed the certificate forgery case filed against the governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseki.
For a good number of weeks now, the governor have been questioned on his educational qualifications to seek re-election as the governor of the state. This prompted the authorities at University of Ibadan to response by affirming that the Governor graduated from the university.
Those named as the plaintiffs in the suit are Ugbesia Abudu, Edobor Williams, and Amexj Dauda.
However, the plaintiffs maintained that the governor’s Bachelor of Arts certificate in classical Studies from the University of Ibadan, UI was forged.
They urged the court to declare the incumbent governor of Edo State, unqualified to run or seek re-election to the office of the governor in the forthcoming Edo State Governorship election.
However, when the case was mentioned at the Federal High Court on Monday, neither were the plaintiffs and their lawyers were present.
In the same vein, the incumbent governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki and his lawyers were also absent in court.
Following the developments, Justice Anwuli Chiekere canceled the suit against the governor.
