Justice Yahuza
An Abia state lawmaker, representing Aba North Constituency, Emeka Nnamani is in trouble over alleged forgery of University of Port Harcourt’s Degree. The University has openly disowned him.
Nnamani, who is alleged to be a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in his home State, Enugu, contested the election on the platform of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State where he resides.
His opponent, Dr. Mrs. Blessing Nwagba of the PDP who is challenging his victory at the tribunal, made the submission of the alleged forgery, saying that he does not have a university certificate as claimed.
She told the National and State Assembly Election Tribunal sitting in Umuahia that Emeka Nnamani, representing Aba North Constituency, allegedly forged a University of Port Harcourt certificate, which he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the April 2015 elections.
Following the allegation, the institution has, through its Registrar, disowned the lawmaker, saying he did not graduate from the institution.
The tribunal, headed by Justice S. Yahuza, admitted in evidence, a letter from the Registrar of the University of Port Harcourt, disowning Nnamani as a graduate of the University. [myad]
