A chieftain of the Young Peoples Party and senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Ifeanyi Ubah, has accused a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Obinna Uzoh, of altering his (Ubah) National Examination Council results.
Senator Ubah in a statement alleged that his NECO result which his rival for Anambra South seat, Obinna Uzoh presented to the Court was forged to deceive the Nigerian judiciary.
The chieftain of the YPP accused Uzoh of “parading photoshopped NECO results and sponsoring unsubstantiated propaganda.”
The statement issued by his media office further alleged that Uzoh altered the serial numbers of his NECO certificate to sustain the false narrative that Senator Ubah was parading a forged NECO results.
The statement read in part: “This vividly shows that Obinna Uzoh and his cronies are not in tune with the conventional practices of examination bodies; NECO in this case, and WAEC also.
“Recent events have further unveiled the fact that he does not know the difference between a “Statement of result” and “Certificate”.
“It is also crystal clear that Obinna Uzoh does not know that INEC requires candidates to submit only “Certificate” and not “Statement of Result”.
“It is a well-known fact that Obinna Uzoh and the claimant, Anani Cletus, through their lawyer swore an affidavit before the court stating that the missing F9 was the basis of their allegation.
“NECO officially responded and punctured their false claim with a letter authenticating and clearing Ifeanyi Ubah of forgery allegation.
“NECO stated that it did not include failed (F9) subjects in their certificate.
“Obinna Uzoh seeing that he has landed himself in another dilemma has once again, shifted the goal post.
“This time, he “photoshopped” a NECO certificate and tried to alter the serial number, changing number (8) to (5) without looking at the body of the letter emanating from NECO which clearly stated the serial number 303865920 twice.”
