Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has emerged victorious in the certificate forgery suit instituted against him by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and one of its members, Edobor Williams.

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Saturday, January 9, dismissed the suit on the grounds that the plaintiffs failed to prove their claim that Obaseki forged the academic certificates he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The development has drawn reactions from Nigerians on social media with diverse perspectives.
