Ondo Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa In Fresh Certificate Forgery Scandal
A fresh political crisis seems to be brewing in Ondo State following an allegation of certificate forgery against Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa.
A social-political group, the Ondo State Redemption Initiative (OSRI), has accused the Governor Aiyedatiwa, of certificate forgery, adding that he is unfit to lead the state.
This was contained in a statement by its president, Adebayo Ogunsanmi; secretary, Jide Oriola; and publicity secretary, Sunday Ayeni; on Monday.
The group alleged that Aiyedatiwa’s educational claims have been exposed as fraudulent.
According to the group, Aiyedatiwa’s curriculum vitae indicated that he obtained an Advanced Diploma in Business Administration from the University of Ibadan in 2001.
However, their investigation revealed that such a diploma was not available at the University of Ibadan in 2001.
The group presented Aiyedatiwa’s academic records, stating that his educational journey commenced at Saint Peter’s UNA (now FAC) Primary School in Obe Nla/Obe Adun, Ilaje Local Government Area (LGA), Ondo State, from 1970 to 1976.
“He pursued his secondary education at Ikosi High School in Ketu, Lagos State, completing it in 1982,” the group said.
“In 1986, Aiyedatiwa achieved his Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE) in Economics and Government at Lagos State College of Education (now known as Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education) located in Ijanikin, Lagos.
“He claimed to have earned an Advanced Diploma in Business Administration from the University of Ibadan in 2001, after which he claimed to have become an alumnus of Lagos Business School – Pan Atlantic University, situated in Lekki, Lagos, though year and course of study were not included,” the group announced.
