MISSING CERTIFICATE: I MADE SECOND-BEST RESULT, OKOWA SAYS

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Tuesday, debunked reports that he had no West African Senior School Certificate, disclosing that he made the second-best result in his set in the country in 1976.

There had been reports on social media last week Friday over the missing certificate of Governor Okowa.

However, Okowa said that the issue around the certificate was a wrong perception and unnecessary politics, explaining that virtually all universities in the country offered him admission based on his outstanding performance in WASSCE and Higher School Certificate examinations.

Okowa made this known after inspecting ongoing projects at the Delta State University of Science and Technology, Ozoro, in Isoko North Local Government Area.

He said that on the issue of his certificate, he thinks it is a misconception and that people try to play politics with everything.

He admitted that he lost his WAEC certificate, but he has the print-out from Edo College, Benin City, which clearly stated that I have a distinction in all subjects.

He added that it’s very clear that he finished medical school at the University of Ibadan when he was 21 years and some months.

On the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the governor called on the Federal Government to expedite action in resolving the issues, adding that every government should be sincere enough to keep to promises and agreements at all times.

He then said that he continues to sympathize with Nigerian students who have been at home for several months now rather than being in school.

However, he reveals that it is unfortunate that the Federal Government has not been able to attend to issues, as requested by ASUU.
