Adamawa 2019: Bindow’s WAEC certificate missing as he emerges APC Gubernatorial candidate, INEC Accused Of Suppression Of Record
Daily Trust reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released particulars of 28 gubernatorial candidates in Adamawa State amidst anxiety over who would emerge as the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer.
Plethora of petitions against the candidature of Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla Bindow who was declared winner of the controversial primary election had generated uncertainty about who would make the final list.
Jibrilla emerged as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) amidst contention over his O’ level school certificate.
The INEC’s published credentials stirred curiosity as they contained testimonial for Jibrilla from Government Secondary School Miango rather than WAEC O’ level certificate as presented by candidates of other parties.
Daily Trust reported that an Abuja high court had recently ordered that summon be served on Governor Jibrilla and the WAEC after a non-governmental organisation filed a case of WAEC certificate forgery against the governor.
The inclusion of a testimonial raised questions as voters were seen snapping the document with their handsets and flipping through other papers attached to the form.
Speaking to the correspondent with Periscope Global Investigative, on the issue of Bindow’s missing alleged forged certificate, an electorate lamented that the deception has just begun with the complacency on the side of INEC to corruption with the suppression of record.
“We can’t fold our arms. We must fight injustice. Our state must get out of the maze, ” the electorate said
