Ifeanyi Okowa, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) vice presidential candidate, acknowledged on Tuesday that he had misplaced his original West Africa School Certificate (WASC) diploma.
However, Okowa revealed that he had a printout of the outcome.
In a statement released by the Press Unit, Delta State Government House, Asaba, on Tuesday, July 5, 2022; he made this disclosure while speaking to journalists in Ozoro, Isoko North Local Government Area.
Okowa, however, noted he had a good result.
The statement reads: “Yes, I lost my WASC certificate. But I have the printout from Edo College, Benin City; which clearly stated that I have a distinction in all subjects.
“The Higher School Certificate was attached and it has been acknowledged by Edo College…The school put it out there that I made an ‘A’ `B’ `B’.
“I do not pride myself but it was very difficult to make such grades in higher school at that time.
“My high school result was the second-best nationally in 1976 when I finished. So, many universities admitted me through Telegram at that time… I had to start making choices of which to accept.”
Meanwhile, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, a former governor of Ogun State, on Tuesday, July 5, declared that; despite the “injustice” shown to his camp, he will support President Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu; the APC’s presidential candidate.
Amosun declared that he would not obstruct any of his supporters from pursuing their political goals inside their preferred political party.
He begged to be excluded from the talks though, saying his main priority is to make sure Tinubu wins the 2023 presidential election.
In addition, Amosun vowed to stick by the President till the end of his term on May 29, 2023, saying that no matter what happens, he will always be his buddy.
Adekunle Akinlade, Amosun’s chosen candidate for the 2019 Ogun governorship election, resigned from the APC citing egregious injustice.
As a result of the national leadership of the party failing to ensure that a sharing formula suggested by the party’s reconciliation committee be followed in Ogun, it was learned that some other influential members of the Amosun political camp had also left the party.
