A document issued by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) declaring that Senator Emmanuel Nnamdi Uba, also known as Andy Uba, forged both a secondary school certificate and “Confirmation of Result” which he presented to British authorities has been obtained.
In a letter dated February 12, 2014 and addressed to the attention of George Smith of Public Agencies, located at 57 Peel Road, Wembley Middlesex, HA9 7LY in the United Kingdom, WAEC stated, “Letter reference no. L/CR/CONF/05465089 dated 21st November, 2013 is fake.” According to the examination body, “Mr. A.A. Okelezo, as you rightly observed, reported as the Controller of our branch office in Calabar on 7th October, 2013 having been deployed from the Ikeja Zonal Office. He was never the Head of National Office, as indicated at the foot of the letter under reference. The signature on the document is in no way similar to his signature.”
In a report earlier today, it was disclosed that Senator Uba, who represents Anambra South senatorial zone, had falsified the grades he earned in the secondary school leaving certificate exams conducted by WAEC throughout West Africa. Mr. Uba, a former senior domestic assistant to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, attended Union Secondary School (formerly Boys High School), Awkunanaw, a suburb of Enugu, the current capital of Enugu State. Records obtained from the school and elsewhere showed that the controversial senator attended Union Secondary School from 1970 to 1974, when he sat the secondary school leaving certificate.
