Recall that the Bayelsa chapter of the All Progressive Congress(APC) earlier secured a court order asking the DSS to investigate the NYSC certificate of the new deputy governor of the state, Senator Lawrence Oborawharievwo Ewhrudjakpo of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), well the APC has come out to further claim that it has discovered a fresh move by PDP to swap the ‘fake NYSC certificate which was earlier submitted to INEC.
This was made known by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of APC, Mr. Yekini Nabena, who stated that APC has obtained a copy of the ‘fake’ certificate as presented to the electoral body.
He further warned both the PDP and INEC to be cautious as they are watching.
“Information reaching us is that agents of the Deputy Governor of Bayelsa State, Senator Lawrence Oborawharievwo Ewhrudjakpo have approached officials of INEC and NYSC with bribe offers to swap the allegedly forged NYSC certificates he presented to INEC for the Senate and Deputy Governor positions.
“We have already obtained the certified true copies of the allegedly forged NYSC certificates the Bayelsa Deputy Governor presented to INEC.
I hereby call on the leadership of INEC to thread cautiously by resisting the pressure and rejecting the bribes of the Bayelsa Deputy Governor to swap the NYSC certificates”.
“The national leadership of APC has approached the Supreme Court seeking a review of its ruling on the Bayelsa Governorship Election.
The general public is already aware of the forgery case involving Bayelsa deputy governor, Senator Lawrence Oborawharievwo Ewhrudjakpo,” Nabena stated.
