Mr. Festus Keyamo has asked a Federal High Court in Lagos to compel the West African Examination Council, WAEC, to produce a copy of the certificate it purportedly issued to Senator Hope Uzodinma in 1982.

The Lagos lawyer stated that his suit was necessitated by the refusal of WAEC to respond to his letter dated May 14, 2013 requesting for a Certified True Copy of Uzodinma’s certificate for Senior Secondary School Certificate Examinations.

The suit, dated July 2, 2013, was filed as an ex parte application on the strength of the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, 2011. It bore the tag, FHC/L/CS/921/2013.

Keyamo had alleged that Uzodinma did not graduate from Mgbidi Boys High School in Imo State, where he claimed to have sat for and passed WAEC’s examinations in 1982.

He stated same in an affidavit accompanying the suit; “The said Hope Uzodinma claimed to have graduated from the Mgbidi Boys High School, Imo State in 1982.

“That inquiry and investigation into the names and persons that graduated in that year has revealed that Senator Hope Uzodinma was not a graduate of the school in 1982.”


  1. Seems this mad dog called keyamo is having rupture in his head. If truly he wanted to fight a course, Bola Tinubu is there for him to start with but for the fact that he collected money from him, he was blind to all his scandals. If you have nothing to do better go and hang.
