‘He Attended Our School, But Didn’t Write WAEC,’ – Principal Exposes Kogi Guber Candidate

The candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the November 11th governorship election in Kogi State, Murtala Yakubu Ajaka has been enmeshed in certificate scandal, with fresh revelations that he did not seat for WAEC Examination at Barewa College, Zaria.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), had published the final list of candidates for the election, alongside their qualifications. Ajaka submitted WAEC Certificate, an action which had stirred criticisms across the state.

Causing further confusion, the Principal of Barewa College, Alhassan Isyaku has confirmed that Ajaka attended the school, but did not seat for WAEC there.

The Principal stated this in a letter dated Thursday 8th June, 2023 and addressed to the Kogi East Council Forum.

“After additional investigation of our archived records, I confirm that the Muritala Yakubuwith registration number 14667 was a student of the college from 1995 to 1998.

“However, he did not seat for WAEC in 1998 in the college hence the absence of his name in the 1998 WAEC gazette,” he said.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson of the embattled candidate’s campaign organization, Faruk Adejoh-Audu, on Friday said there was no cause for alarm,that the candidate never said his result emanated from the school.

Whilst the spokesperson did not reveal where the examination was written, he said it was an “external GCE Certificate issued directly to the candidate by the Examination Council.”
