Uba, who represents Anambra South Senatorial District, on Sunday, reiterated his position via a statement his media aide, Mr. Chike Okeke, released.

The Senator denied suggestion that the WAEC certificate he filled in  INEC form as part of his qualification to contest for election into senate was forged.

Instead Uba said the WAEC certificate he used was the one he obtained when he sat for the exam as a student of Union Secondary School, Awkunanaw, Enugu in 1974,with Examination No: 05465/089.

The senator went to say that his classmates from primary school through the university are still alive and can confirm his claim.

The statement reads in part: “These are the certificates he used in his INEC Form CF 001 with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) submitted in the 2007, 2010, 2011 re-run and 2015 general elections. Being public documents, they are open to the general public for verification.”
