A group known as the Global Integrity Crusade Network (GICN) has approached the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to compel the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to commence the prosecution of Jibrilla Bindow, Governor of Adamawa State, over offences allegedly related to forgery and perjury.
In the originating summons, a copy of which was made available to journalists, the Governor was said not to have completed his secondary education at the Government Secondary School, Mangu, Plateau State, as claimed.
Bindow is described as a business tycoon, new to politics, and those close to him revealed that he did not possess secondary school certificate despite claiming so in his resume before his election as Governor.
Those close to Bindow say he has been running from pillar to post to get out of the mess, but that it is increasingly becoming impossible as “the certificate scandal cannot be covered since WAEC has not been able to prove that he has an authentic certificate”.
Reacting to the allegation, Macaulay Hunohashi, Senior Special Assistant on Media to the Governor, described it as “a desperate move by those who have lost the grip of power.
“I can tell you the certificate forgery allegation is simply malicious and a move to embarrass the Governor, but I can tell it will get them nowhere near the coveted ticket of our great party,” he said.
Asked if the Governor was aware of a lawsuit instituted to compel the IGP to commence prosecution against him, Hunohashi said: “Neither the Governor nor any of us in his legal team is aware of the purported lawsuit.”
