Tinubu’s certificate shouldn’t be an issue if INEC has an efficient record keeping- Uzodinma

Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has broken silence on the certificates saga of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu,

According to him,  if the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) record keeping is good and its server functional, it should not be an issue.

He made this remark  after a thank you visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, for approving the hosting of Army Day celebration in Owerri

It should be noted that Tinubu had in an affidavit submitted to the electoral body said he did not attend primary and secondary schools.

Tinubu  claimed he had two degrees from two US universities, which he noted stated were stolen by unknown soldiers during the military era of the 1990s.

Uzodimma who defended Tinubu saying “But for my presidential candidate, the issue of certificates shouldn’t even arise. In 1999 he contested elections and became the governor of Lagos, in 2003 he contested election as second term governor of Lagos. He ran and won as a senator in the country. Where record keeping is efficient, and INEC server is functional, he doesn’t need to do fresh submission. However, if whatever he is supposed to submit is not handy, it is not late yet. I’m sure before the time he will submit whatever is required of him.”
