Obaseki was unqualified to gain admission into university - Osagie Ize-Iyamu

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Edo governorship election, Osagie Ize-Iyamu has said Governor Godwin Obaseki was not qualified to be admitted to the University of Ibadan in 1976.

Ize-Iyamu made the statement on Sunday, September 13, during a governorship debate organised by Channels TV, Premium Times reported.

The APC candidate argued that records show that Obaseki failed his school certificate exams.

He stated that the governor had just three credits, without English and Mathematics, noting that such a result would have even been difficult to qualify for A Level.

Ize-Iyamu also challenged the Edo governor to produce his A Level result if he had any.

"We are not doubting you going to the university. That is not the issue. The issue is (that) you failed by your own records. You failed school cert. You had three credits, no English, no Maths, even to enter A level would have been difficult.

"And if you got the A Level, where is the result? That is a moral question. A lot of people are looking up to you as a governor and as a leader. The question is that you failed your level and that is why you were disqualified (by APC) and your disqualification arose from information from the PDP, your party now. Because the PDP when I was contesting against you (in 2016) said you have no results. Why have you not answered the question. Where is your result?" Mr Ize-Iyamu queried.
