Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has expressed satisfaction with the Judgement of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which acquitted him of alleged certificates forgery.
The governor said to those who instituted the case were attempting to sabotage the will of the people of Edo through the “backdoor”.
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Saturday dismissed a case of certificates forgery instituted by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its chieftain Edobor Williams against Obaseki.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed ruled that the plaintiffs failed to prove their claims against the Edo governor.
But reacting to the jdugement on Saturday Obaseki stressed that the case was a “needless attempt” to remove him from office through the backdoor by desperate politicians.
Obaseki, while hailing the judiciary for the judgement, he commended President Muhammadu Buhari, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Edo people for standing solidly behind him.
According to him, “The verdict of the Federal High Court, delivered by Honourable Justice Ahmed Mohammed on the allegation of certificate forgery is well-received and a victory for the rule of law.
“The suit was a most needless attempt by desperate individuals trying to undo the will of the people through the backdoor but we are happy today that justice and truth have prevailed.
“My profound gratitude goes to the judiciary who have stood indefatigably for truth and justice; the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR); my party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); our party leaders and members; my teeming supporters; the good people of Edo State and all Nigerians.”
