The certificate forgery scandal of the senator representing Anambra South, Andy Uba just got messier as two different o-level results bearing his name from the same year have been uncovered, The Cable reports.
On Wednesday, a private investigator accused Uba of forging his West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate.
Speaking at a news conference in Abuja on Wednesday, Uwajeh said the O-level certificate Uba was “parading” was forged.
“WAEC confirmed that the certificate Nnamdi Uba is parading is a fake document, and I expect the authorities to look into this vehemently because forgery in the national assembly is alarming and I feel the media is crucial to straightening issues in Nigeria,” Uwajeh said.
Uba has since dismissed Uwajeh’s claim, labelling him a blackmailer.
In a petition to the inspector-general of police, Uba said that Uwajeh was targeting his “reputation, career and life through the spread of scandalous falsehood”.
Checks on two certificates bearing the senator’s name show discrepancy.
The “forged” certificate which Uwajeh showed journalists at the press conference shows Uba finished secondary school at Boys High School, Awkunawaw, Enugu in 1974.
The other result – a statement of result – which the lawmaker submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as his original credential, shows that he graduated from Union Secondary School, Awkunanaw, Enugu state in 1974.
The grades on both results are also different.
