Jandor questioned the veracity of Sanwo-Olu’s WAEC result’s sudden emergence and upload to the verification portal, and he summoned WAEC to appear in court and produce the claimed 1981 WAEC certificate under oath.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) failed to present the original certificate of Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.

As a result, the tribunal directed that the examination body submit its result verification portal back-end server and other information technology infrastructure for forensic study of Sanwo-Olu’s results.

The order was issued by the Lagos State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal in response to a request from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Abdulazeez Adediran, who claimed that Sanwo-Olu lied on oath in his 2023 form EC9 by presenting a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in 2019.

According to a statement released to newsmen on Monday, June 26, a study of Sanwo-Olu’s 2019 Form CF001 revealed that the stated statement of WAEC result he claimed he sat for in 1981 in Ijebu Ife Community Grammar School, Ogun state, was verified to be invalid on the WAEC result verification portal.

The statement partially read: “While responding to Jandor/ PDP petition, Governor Sanwo-Olu didn’t attach the purported WAEC certificate to counter Jandor/PDP claims, but the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the 4th respondent attached a printout from the same WAEC portal which hitherto confirmed Sanwo-Olu’s purported WAEC result to be non-existent.”

Jandor questioned the veracity of Sanwo-Olu’s WAEC result’s sudden emergence and upload to the verification portal, and he summoned WAEC to appear in court and produce the claimed 1981 WAEC certificate under oath.

Election Petition: Tribunal Orders Sanwo-Olu’s Service To Be Substituted

The WAEC representative who was bid to be in court last week in the oath of witnesses deposed to and sighted said: “I am unable to tender the duplicate copy of the May/June 1981 G.C.E. ‘O’ Level certificate of one Sanwo-Olu Babajide Olusola.”

The witness went on to say that WAEC did not make counterpart copies of candidates’ certificates and did not save duplicate copies of candidates’ certificates.

The statement added that: “However, a check on the WAEC website revealed that in the event of loss of the WAEC certificate, the council issues an attestation in the form of a CTC, but none of such was issued by WAEC to ascertain the claim of Babajide Sanwoolu, hence the order of the court that WAEC should submit it back end-server and other information technology infrastructure for forensic analysis. This exercise will expose the date and time the sudden appearance of Governor Sanwo-Olu’s purported 1981 WAEC result was uploaded, as the same result wasn’t there as of APRIL 7th, 2023 when Jandor/PDP filed their petition at the tribunal.”
