INEC produces blurred copies of Adeleke’s WAEC/GCE certificates before Tribunal

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday, produced Form CF001, containing the WAEC-GCE certificate and Secondary School Testimonial of Gov. Ademola Adeleke before the Osun Election Petitions Tribunal, sitting in Osogbo.

This was in compliance with the order of Justice Tertsea Kume, the Tribunal Chairman, on Nov. 25.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Kume had ordered the National Chairman of INEC to produce Form CF001, after INEC in Osogbo office said the documents were not in its custody, but with its Headquarters in Abuja.

Lead Counsel to INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, informed the court that the order given had been complied with and that the documents had been brought from Abuja by Mrs Joan Arabs, a Deputy Director.

Arabs, thereafter, presented the documents to the court, which was admitted and affirmed that the documents had been produced in compliance to the order.

However, Mr Lateef Fagbemi, Counsel to the petitioners (APC and Gboyega Oyetola), after going through the two pages of documents, told the tribunal that the documents produced by INEC (Form CF001) were not legible and could not be used to prosecute their case.

Fagbemi pointed out that they paid N305,000 for the documents and that the first document, West African Examination Council (WAEC) – General Certificate of Examination (GCE), does not have anything/result details on it and that only the signature at the bottom was legible.

He also said that the second document, School Testimonial, obtained from Ede Muslim Grammar School by Adeleke, does not have the address or location of the school on it.
