Certificate forgery: INEC devices new strategy, picks dates for Edo, Ondo display

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it would display personal credentials of political aspirants ahead of the governorship elections in Edo and Ondo states for public scrutiny.

INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, who revealed this during a meeting with resident electoral commissioners in Abuja, Friday said the new was imperative after the supreme court sacked David Lyon, the former governor-elect of Bayelsa state, on the grounds that Biobarakuma Degi-Eriemienyo, his deputy, presented forged credentials to INEC.

He said the credentials of candidates will be publicly displayed on July 6 in Edo and August 4 in Ondo, ahead of the gubernatorial elections in both states.
