The dark cloud over Senator Hope Uzodinma Certificate forgery scandal has gathered steam as Lagos lawyer, Festus Keyamo is asking a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos to compel the West African Examination Council (WAEC), to produce a copy of the certificate it purportedly issued him in 1982.

Keyamo said that his move became necessary following the refusal of WAEC to respond to his letter dated May 14, 2013 where he requested for a Certified True Copy of the senator, who represents Imo West Senatorial District in the senate.

The suit, dated July 2, 2013, was filed as an ex parte application on the strength of the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, 2011. It bore the tag, FHC/L/CS/921/2013.

The lawyer alleged that Uzodinma did not graduate from Mgbidi Boys High School in Imo State, where he claimed to have sat for and passed WAEC’s examinations in 1982.

Keyamo stated in an affidavit accompanying the suit, “The said Hope Uzodinma claimed to have graduated from the Mgbidi Boys High School, Imo State in 1982.

“That inquiry and investigation into the names and persons that graduated in that year has revealed that Senator Hope Uzodinma was not a graduate of the school in 1982.”
