I LOST MY CERTIFICATES TO FIRE, SAMBO TELLS INEC

Vice-President and President Goodluck Jonathan’s running mate in the forthcoming election, Namadi Sambo has told the Independent National Electoral Commission that his Bachelors and Masters degrees certificates in Architecture from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, have been consumed by fire.

Punch reports that Sambo made the declaration in the documents he filed with INEC and displayed on the commission’s office in Abuja. The documents were received and stamped in INEC headquarters between December 10 and 18, 2014.

The report also has it that the VP’s declaration was validated by two letters from the ABU.

The first letter, signed by one Alhassan Garba for the institution’s registrar under the title, “To Whom it may Concern: Mohammed Namani Sambo,” read, “I certify that the above-named person having completed an approved course of study and passed the prescribed examinations was awarded the Bachelor of Science (Architecture) with Second Class Honours (Lower Division) in 1976 by the Senate of this University. His original certificate got burnt. Please treat his case in view of this certification. Thank you.”

The second letter, also signed by Garba for the ABU registrar, read, “I certify that the above-named person having completed an approved course of study and passed the prescribed examinations was awarded the Master of Science (Architecture) on May 25, 1978 by the Senate of this University. His original certificate got burnt. Please treat his case in view of this certification. Thank you.”
