Obi’s name on NYSC, UNN certificates different – Lamidi Apapa’s Labour Party alleges


Abayomi Arabambi, the National Publicity Secretary of the Lamidi Apapa-led faction of the Labour Party (LP), has alleged a discrepancy in the credentials of the presidential candidate of the party, Peter Obi.


Arabambi made the allegation during an interview on AIT while reacting to Obi’s press conference on the controversy over Bola Tinubu’s Chicago State University certificate.


The factional LP’s spokesperson said he was among the people who screened Obi before the party’s presidential primary.


According to him, the name on Obi’s academic certificate from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) was not the same as on his National Youth Service Corps certificate.


“I was part of the people who did the screening for him. In the form EC9 we gave him, he wrote that he attended the University of Nigeria Nsukka and that he finished his youth service but unfortunately, in the final submission of the form, he only submitted his school certificate,” Arabambi said.


“So something is fishy, and I want to say the name the school sent for mobilization was not what was written on his NYSC certificate, and he knows that.


“For us, we don’t know the true identity of Peter Obi even in the Labour Party because everything was shrouded in secrecy at that time between him and Abure in Asaba.


“You know we were rushing because we had just a day to do our presidential primary, and that was why he was able to get away with it, but we have it on record that Obi’s name on his NYSC certificate and the one on his University of Nigeria, Nsukka certificate are different,” he concluded.
