Ejes Gist Newspaper gathered, however, that all the institutions attested to Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori’s enrollment.

Ejes Gist Newspaper reports that  the higher institutions, Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma and Delta State University, Abraka, where Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori did his undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Political Science, have confirmed in a letter to the two security agencies that he graduated with second class upper (2:1) at the BSc level and an MSc in the same field respectively.

While the Ambrose Alli University in Ekpoma acknowledged that Sheriff Francis Oborevwori was named on the certificate it gave him, the Delta State University in Abraka claimed that the same was true.

The institutions also stated that Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori had signed an affidavit that was published in the Observer newspapers edition of January 30, 2004, to address the concern that his primary and secondary school transcripts did not include the name Sheriff.

While this was going on, Mr. Jacob Akpodiogaga, the former principal of Oghareki Grammar School in Oghara, where Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori re-enrolled for his WASC exam, confirmed that the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly had taken the WAEC exam during the 1998–1999 session.

Additionally, in separate interviews, classmates of Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori from both secondary schools and universities attested that the Speaker was a fellow student.

Both his Ambrose Alli University classmate, Chief Mrs. Rasheeda Egbedi, and his secondary school classmate, Oghenejabor Ikimi, a lawyer, affirmed that Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori was their student and provided a precise description of the Speaker.

Recall that Olorogun David Edevbie, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori’s opponent, is suing the PDP over the lopsided victory of Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori in the guber primary, saying that the candidate’s credentials were falsified.

The Court of Appeal, which heard the case on August 19th, has reserved judgement until a time before September 5, 2022, to be announced to all parties.
