A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed the certificate forgery case the All Progressives Congress, APC, and one of  its members, Mr. Williams Edobor, instituted against Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State.

Delivering judgment, the judge, Justice Ahmed Mohammed, held that the Plaintiffs failed to give credible evidence before the court to establish that Governor Obaseki forged either his O’level Certificate or the Degree Certificate  that was awarded to him in 1979 by the University of Ibadan.

Justice Mohammed held that the allegation of forgery the Plaintiffs levelled against  Mr. Obaseki bordered on crime and therefore required to be proved beyond reasonable doubt.

He further held that the discrepancies in the documents Governor Obaseki submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, were explained satisfactorily before the court.
