The National Examination Council, NECO, has confirmed that Senator Ifeanyi Ubah sat for the examination; as well as passed seven out of the eight subjects in 2003.
The Head of the Department of Legal and Board Affairs of NECO, Comfort Kolo, stated this in a letter; she addressed to the National Secretary of the Young Progressives Party, Vidiyeno Bamaiyi.
She made the letter available to newsmen with reference number NECO/R/LGS/V. 20/006; and dated January 23, 2020, in Abuja on Monday.
The examination body said the letter was in response to YPP’s request; seeking details of Ubah results.
NECO said Ubah was given a statement of results in June 2003; containing the subjects he passed and the grades.
The results are English Language (C6), Mathematics (C6); Government (C6), Economics (C5), Literature in English (C5); Commerce (C5) and Christian Religious Studies (C6).
The body said biology was not included in the statement of results; because Ubah scored F9 in it.
The Senator, who briefed journalists on the issue in Abuja on Monday; said his accusers approached the court with a copy of his statement of results which indicated that he failed biology.
