By Babajide Okeowo

There are jubilation on the streets of Edo state as a federal high court in Abuja has dismissed a case of forgery against Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) and one Williams Edobor, a chieftain of the party, had filed a suit against Obaseki, accusing him of forging the first degree certificate which he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to enable him contest the governorship election.

They submitted that the certificate which the governor claims is from the University of Ibadan did not carry a date of issuance and signature of the registrar.

But the governor had denied allegations of forgery.

He insisted that the error on photocopy of his certificate which he submitted to INEC was made by a photocopying machine.

Also, Abayomi Ajayi, an official of the legal unit of the University of Ibadan who was summoned to testify as a defence witness told the court that the institution issued a Bachelor of Arts certificate to Obaseki in 1979.

Recall that after legal arguments on the pre-election matter, the parties on Thursday adopted their written addresses, and the presiding judge, Justice Ahmed Muhammed, fixed today for judgment.
