Due to the typographical error on the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) discharged certificate of the Edo state Governor; Godwin Obaseki.
The NYSC management has now issued a new certificate to the governor.
It will be noted that Obaseki name was mistakenly written on the NYSC certificate as OBASEK instead of his correct surname, Obaseki. In the programme had in the new certificate with number A 004280695 corrected the error.
The governor paid heavy becuase of this, the governor was disqualified from contesting in the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the inconsistencies in his degree certificate.
The Professor Jonathan Ayuba-led Screening Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Edo state Governorship primary election speaking on why Obaseki was considered ineligible to contest in the party’s primary election said in part; “On the NYSC certificate dated 6th August 1980, the committee observed that he bears the name ‘Obasek’ Godwin.
“While this may be an error on the part of the issuing authority, we observed however that the aspirant has not taken any step ever to have the anomaly corrected by the issuing authority.
Sequel to this controversy that rises because of his certificate among other issues, Obaseki decamped to the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Meanwhile, the governor defected to the opposition party to realize his second term ambition and unopposed emerged as the PDP flagbearer for the Edo governorship election slated for September 20.
