The governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has responded to the recent accusation of forgery of an academic certificate by stating his credentials are authentic to the All Progressives Congress screening committee for the state’s upcoming governorship election.

The governor made this announcement on Friday, the day before the APC’s governorship primary, which is scheduled for April 20, when he was the first candidate to be approved by the screening committee.

The governor, who purchased the party’s N50 million governorship nomination forms, has been engaged in a political battle on the party’s platform in the state with a few other contenders, including Mr. Wale Akinterinwa, Mr. Mayowa Akinfolarin, Mr. Isaacs Kekemeke, Chief Olusola Oke (SAN), Mr. Gbenga Edema, and Senator Jimoh Ibrahim.

After a lawyer named Oladotun Hassan wrote a petition to the Police Service Commission and Inspector General of Police Kayode Egbetokun, claiming that a high-ranking official was going to alter the findings of an ongoing investigation into the governor’s academic credentials, the dispute had revolved around his credentials.

However, Aiyedatiwa said to reporters at the APC national secretariat on Friday following his screening, “One of the processes aspirants have to go through is screening.” I just finished mine this morning.

The screening committee has to verify all of the submitted documents and ask questions if there are any that are unclear. There were queries and responses.”In the end, I was exonerated, particularly with regard to the matter concerning my certificate, for which a written petition was submitted. That has been resolved as of today. My credentials are real and valid. I believe that some candidates, who view me as the man to beat, are playing around and trying to find a way to disparage me personally.

It has been confirmed and disproved as of today.Aiyedatiwa claims that Lateef Jakande, the governor of Lagos at the time, was forced to combine some schools—especially those impacted by flooding—with the Ikosi High School, where he had attended.

As a history student, you probably remember that private schools were taken over in 1989 when Lateef Jakande was appointed governor of Lagos State. For the communities, schools were constructed. And Ikosi High School, which I attended, was one of the institutions established by Lateef Jakande’s administration.

According to the records, the school was founded in 1980. At that time, he continued, “I was in Form 3 at a private school called New Nation in Ikosi, and Royal Comprehensive High School is located in Ajegunle Ikorudu, which is very close to Ketu.”However, in response to the screening, another candidate, Senator Jimoh Ibrahim, made fun of the governor while showcasing his full academic record and giving out certificates to media.

Ibrahim claimed that the governor was merely attempting to reenter Government House on the strength of the late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s ticket and a few endorsements from the State House of Assembly.”As you can see, I have all the necessary credentials and cer tifications,” he declared. What succeeds Aiyedatiwa?

To Aketi, he was just a couple. He was not our choice to win. We chose Aketi to win. However, I promise you that the governor is a major joker. With his alleged P8 and P7 grades, he is unable to continue in government.

By the time we conclude the APC primary next week, the governor will have left that location. There is nothing he can do about his disappearance.”I generally do not oppose people. I will clear everyone on my own and let them head to primary. Decide with the electorate. I have been elected to the Senate.

I received 111,677 votes to Agboola Ajayi’s 60,000, winning in six of the six local governments and 65 of the 66 wards.
