Edo Governor has reacted to his university certificate saga saying posterity will always vindicate the just.
This is coming from the statement released by the University of Ibadan (UI), which confirmed that the governor graduated from the institution after some opposition leaders in the state’s chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) accused him presenting a fake certificate.
The governor took to his Twitter page and wrote: “Posterity will always vindicate the just”.

The university had in a statement by its Registrar, Olubunmi Faluyi, said Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, studied Classics at the institution which he admission into in 1976 and graduated in 1979 with a Second Class Honours (Lower Division).
“Records of his admission and graduation are intact in the archives of the university.” the statement said.
The opposition leaders in the party had said he did not graduate from the premier university. But the UI statement has drawn the curtain on the supposed certificate scandal crisis.
Obaseki, who had said that he is unsure of getting a fair judgment from the party had said he would contest under the platform of the ruling party he won the first term.
His running battle with his predecessor Adams Oshiomhole could hinder him from getting the second term ticket at the expense of former Secretary to the State Government, Osagie Ize-Iyamu who recently defected to the party fro the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
With Ize-Iyamu being Oshiomhole’s preferred candidate, the National Chairman of the APC has vowed to ensure the governor does not get a second term in office.
