They had labelled the certificate of Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Classical Studies which Obaseki bagged at the University of Ibadan as a forgery.

Their suit asked the court to label Godwin Obaseki as “not qualified to run or seek election to the office of the governor of Edo State”.
The case was, however, today struck out by Justice Anwuli Chiekere following the absence of the plaintiffs and the defendant.
