The National Examination Council (NECO) had said that the certificate Ifeanyi Ubah, senator representing Anambra south, presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is genuine.

Ubah of member of Young Progressive Party (YPP), was sacked by a federal capital territory (FCT) high court as senator on that grounds that he submitted forged a NECO certificate to INEC.

INEC was ordered by the court to withdraw Ubah’s certificate of return and to issue another one to Obinna Uzoh, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate.

In a letter addressed to Vidiyeno Bamaiyi, YPP national secretary, Comfort Kolo, head of the department of legal and board affairs of NECO, said the result was given to the YPP candidate in 2003.

YPP had written to the examination body for confirmation of the certificate.

“In all, we state with every sense of duty and responsibility that both the statement of result and the certificate are genuine,” the letter by Kolo read.

“They both emanated from the council and correspond with the records in our database.”

According to her, Ubah scored C6 in English, C6 in mathematics, C6 in government, C5 in economics, C5 in literature in English, C5 in commerce and C6 in Christian Religious Knowledge.

Kolo said biology was not included in the result because the YPP candidate scored F9 in it.
