I Made Second-best Result—Okowa:

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Tuesday, debunked reports that he had no West African Senior School Certificate, disclosing that he made the second-best result in his set in the country in 1976.

There had been reports on social media last week Friday over the missing certificate of Governor Okowa.

However, Okowa said that the issue around the certificate was a wrong perception and unnecessary politics, explaining that virtually all universities in the country offered him admission based on his outstanding performance in WASSCE and Higher School Certificate examinations.

At a press briefing, INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Francis Ezeonu, said the figure excluded those who had applied for a review, transfer of polling units and replacement of permanent voter cards (PVCs) as of June 27.

He said that in the first two-quarters of the exercise, which lasted from June to December 2021, the state registered 16,511, out of which 7,145 (43 per cent) were invalid due to double registration.

However, Mr Ezeonu said that following popular demand, the voter registration exercise, which should have ended on June 30, had been extended until further notice.
