Election tribunal: WAEC confirms the originality of Kwara governor, Abdulrazaq’s result

The West African Examinations Council, (WAEC), yesterday has officially confirmed the authenticity of the secondary school leaving certificate of the Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

The council also confirmed that he sat for its senior school leaving examination in 1976 at the Government College Kaduna, using the name Razaq A.R. as contained in the credentials the governor repeatedly submitted to INEC when contesting for elections.

The confirmation was contained in the certified true copy (CTC) of the results of the governor and other candidates of the same set that the examination body forwarded to the Kwara State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ilorin.

It would be recalled that the People’s Democratic Party challenged the election of AbdulRazaq on the allegation that he did not have WAEC results as required under the law.

Meanwhile, the case under the hearing of the tribunal and chaired by Justice Bassey Efiong, has been adjourned to July 23 for the respondents to open their defence.
