Abayomi Arabambi, the National Publicity Secretary of the
Lamidi Apapa-led faction of the Labour Party (LP), has alleged a discrepancy in
the credentials of the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi.
Arabambi made the allegation during an interview on AIT
while reacting to Obi’s press conference on the controversy over Bola Tinubu’s
Chicago State University certificate.
The factional LP’s spokesperson said he was among the people
who screened Obi before the party’s presidential primary.
According to him, the name on Obi’s academic certificate
from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) was not the same as on his
National Youth Service Corps certificate.
“I was part of the people who did the screening for him. In
the form EC9 we gave him, he wrote that he attended the University of Nigeria
Nsukka and that he finished his youth service but unfortunately, in the final
submission of the form, he only submitted his school certificate,” Arabambi
“So something is fishy, and I want to say the name the
school sent for mobilization was not what was written on his NYSC certificate,
and he knows that.
“For us, we don’t know the true identity of Peter Obi even
in the Labour Party because everything was shrouded in secrecy at that time
between him and Abure in Asaba.
“You know we were rushing because we had just a day to do
our presidential primary, and that was why he was able to get away with it, but
we have it on record that Obi’s name on his NYSC certificate and the one on his
University of Nigeria, Nsukka certificate are different,” he concluded.
