An Abuja High Court, sitting in Apo, Gudu District, yesterday, dismissed a certificate forgery suit filed by Uchenna Nnadi against Senator Andy Uba.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted Justice Valentine Ashi as saying that the plaintiff had failed to lead the court with further evidence, as provided by law.
Ashi said the plaintiff should have investigated and gotten his facts from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which cleared the defendant as being eligible for elections.
Nnadi had sued Uba on the grounds that he presented a forged School certificate from Boys’ High School, Awkunawu, and so unqualified and ineligible to stand for elections.
Uba, in his counter affidavit, however, denied ownership of the said certificate and maintained that he graduated from Union Secondary School, Awkunawu, which he submitted to INEC and was properly cleared.
