The National Examinations Council (NECO) has cleared Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of certificate forgery allegations, saying his school certificate is genuine.
KanyiDaily had reported that Senator Ifeanyi Ubah was accused of allegedly submitting a forged NECO certificate to contest the February 23, 2019 senatorial election.
However, in a letter dated January 23, 2020 addressed to the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), NECO officially cleared Ubah, confirming the certificate he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as original and authentic.
NECO confirmed that Ifeanyi Ubah took a total of eight subjects, had credit in seven subjects and failed one subject.
The subjects and the grade as listed by NECO are English Language – C6, Mathematics – C6, Biology – F9, Government – C6, Economics – C5, Literature in English – C5, Commerce – C5 and Christian Religious Studies – C6.
The embattled senator took to his Facebook page on Monday, January 27, to reveal that NECO have cleared him of certificate forgery allegations.
This is coming a few days after a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja restrained INEC and the National Assembly from effecting a court’s judgment on April 11, 2019, that sacked Ifeanyi Ubah from the Senate.
