Phillip Shaibu, Deputy Governor of Edo State, displayed his dancing skills on Saturday after the Federal High Court, Abuja, dismissed the certificate forgery allegation brought against his principal, Governor Godwin Obaseki and affirmed his legitimacy as the state’s leader.
According to Justice Mohammed, the plaintiffs relied on the photocopied document presented by Governor Obaseki without getting in touch with the university to verify the authenticity of the said certificate.
He stated that no iota of truth was brought before the court by the plaintiffs who alleged forgery, saying it was a criminal matter, but the claimants were unable to prove their case.
The judge held that the Deputy Registrar (Legal) of the University of Ibadan had given evidence in the suit that the university duly issued the certificate to Governor Obaseki.
He noted that the governor was duly and properly admitted to study Classics which was later renamed Classical Studies in 1976 and graduated in 1979.
According to Justice Mohammed, the plaintiffs failed to prove their allegations of forgery against Governor Obaseki
Following the court’s verdict, a video surfaced on social media showing Shaibu dancing with his friends and associates to Korede Bello’s “Godwin” in celebration.
