Mohammed Umaru Jibrilla Bindow

Muhammad Jibrilla Bindow, Adamawa governor, has been sued over the alleged forgery of his West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate.

The governor was sued by the Global Integrity Crusade Network (GICN), a rights group.

According to the originating summons, the group claims that the governor did not complete his secondary education at Government Secondary School, Mangu, Plateau state.

GICN asked the court to compel WAEC to produce the governor’s certificate.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the All Progressives Congress (APC), WAEC and the police are defendants in the suit filed at the federal high court, Abuja.

The group also asked the court to determine “whether by the true interpretation of Section 177 (d) of the 1999 constitution, the first defendant (Jibrilla) is not absolutely disqualified from seeking re-election to the office on the ground that he does not possess a school certificate or its equivalent issued to him by the second defendant either in 1983 or at any time whatsoever.

“Whether the fourth defendant should not decline to present the first defendant to the third defendant to purposes of screening ahead of the forthcoming election to the office of governor of Adamawa state on the ground that he does not possess a school certificate or Its equivalent issued to him by the second defendant either in I983 or at any time whatsoever”.

GICN also requested an order directing the police to “carry out its legal duty by arresting and prosecuting the first defendant for perjury if the fifth defendant investigates and finds that first defendant neither completed his secondary education at Government Secondary School, Mangu, Plateau state in 1983 nor was issued any school certificate or its equivalent by the second defendant”.
