AGENE GODWIN , Benin
The state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Dan Orbih has asked the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate Mr Godwin Obaseki to publicly display to Edo people the original copies of his educational certificates which he said he was expecting from the US city of New York.
In a statement, signed by the State Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Chris Nehikhare, in Benin City, Orbih said Obaseki can go on air and use any of the many television stations in the state to publicly display the certificates or do so during his campaigns for the world to see that he actually went to school as he claims.
He said the time between when Obaseki said he got a call from his relative in New York that the documents which were missing in Lagos are in America, and now, over three weeks has passed and the period was enough for him to have received the documents if he actually has them.
He also said Obaseki should come out of his shell and tell the whole truth about his educational certificates which he said in an affidavit got lost while he was moving from one office to another in Lagos which certified true copies he now carries about.
Orbih then appealed to the voters in Edo state to read between the lines of Mr Godwin Obaseki that he has found his certificates three weeks ago and his refusal to show them publicly at campaign rallies as proof that he has has no plans for Edo people and does not deserve to be elected governor.
