Okowa APC 2023 presidency

The Delta State Governor and vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said the controversy surrounding his missing West Africa School Certificate is political, adding that he made the second-best result in the country in 1976.

Okowa stated this while inspecting ongoing projects at the Delta State University of Science and Technology, Ozoro in Isoko North Local Government Area.

The governor said, “On the issue of my certificate, I think it is a misconception. People try to play politics with everything.

“Yes, I lost my WAEC certificate, but I have the print out from Edo College, Benin City, which clearly stated that I have distinction in all subjects.

“The Higher School Certificate was attached and it has been acknowledged by Edo College and the school put it out there that I made an ‘A’ ‘B’ ‘B’. I do not pride myself but it was very difficult to make such a grade in high school at that time.

“My high school result was the second best nationally in 1976, when I finished. So, many universities admitted me through Telegram as of that time, and I had to start making choices of which to accept.

“Of course, it is very clear that I finished medical school at the University of Ibadan. I was 21years and some months. I was less than 22 years of age.’’
