Andy Uba Certificate Scandal: Protesters storm NASS, demand Senator’s arrest and expulsion

Anambra Youths demand Andy Uba's arrest and expulsion from the Senate

The protesters are also seeking a ban on Senator Andy Uba from ‘ever contesting' for any elective position in Nigeria.

Youths on the platform of Anambra Youths Movement (AYM) today stormed the National Assembly to demand the arrest and prosecution of Senator Andy Uba (Anambra South) over alleged certificate forgery.

Recall that an Abuja based private investigator, Victor Uwaje had accused Senator Uba of ‘forging’ his West African Examinations Council (WEAC) result.

Addressing journalists on Tuesday, April 25, 2017, Austin Okeke, the national coordinator of the AYM demanded “an open and clinical investigation” into the alleged falsification of Senator Uba's WAEC results. 

Austin noted the group had submitted a petition to the office of the Inspector General of Police, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the of Senate President to that effect. 

"Senator Andy Uba has extensively falsified his academic credentials,” he said.

“Documents obtained by private investigators reveal that Mr Uba has systematically lied about every level of his academic experience, brazenly doctoring his secondary school leaving certificate and making claims to several university degrees, including a doctorate, even though he never obtained even a bachelor's degree. 

 

“Based on our private investigation, Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba completed his secondary school education at Union Secondary School, Awkunanaw, Enugu, in 1974. His statement of result as issued by his secondary school revealed that Mr. Uba sat for nine (9) subjects.

“The document according to the petition, which contained the Senator’s examination number, 05465089, showed that Mr Uba’s original/authentic results were as follows: 

English Literature – 9 (Fail) 
Christian Religious Knowledge – 9 (Fail) 
Economics – 9 (Fail) 
English Language – 8 (Pass) 
Mathematics – 7 (Pass) 
Physics – 8 (Pass) 
Biology – 8 (Pass) 
Statistics – 8 (Pass) 
Chemistry – 6 (Credit)   

“It also revealed further that Mr Uba forged a different ‘Confirmation of Result’ dated November 13, 2013, claiming that the document was issued by the West African Examination Council (WAEC). In it, the fake document listed his grades as follows: 

English Literature – 4 (Credit) 
English Language – 7 (Pass) 
Christian Religious Knowledge – 7 (Pass) 
Economics – 4 (Credit) 
Statistics – 6 (Credit) 
Mathematics – 6 (Credit) 
Physics – 4 (Credit) 
Chemistry – 6 (Credit) 

 

”We officially writes to demand an immediate withdrawal of the Certificate of Return issued to Mr. Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba (Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Federal Republic of Nigeria) over criminal cases of Deceit, Forgery & Perjury regards his representation during the 2015 general elections.” 

The group is also seeking a ban on Mr Uba from ‘ever contesting' for any elective position in Nigeria.
