Presidency: I Lost My WASC Certificate – Okowa
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, on Tuesday, admitted that he lost his original West Africa School Certificate (WASC) certificate.
Okowa, however, disclosed that he has a printout of the result.
He disclosed this while addressing journalists in Ozoro in Isoko North Local Government Area, and was contained in a statement issued by the Press Unit, Delta State Government House, Asaba.
The Delta State Governor said he had a good result.
Okowa said he was less than 22 years old when he finished medical school at the University of Ibadan.
The statement reads: “Yes, I lost my WASC certificate, but I have the printout from Edo College, Benin City, which clearly stated that I have distinction in all subjects.
“The Higher School Certificate was attached and it has been acknowledged by Edo College and the school put it out there that I made an ‘A’ `B’ `B’.
“I do not pride myself but it was very difficult to make such grades in higher school at that time.
“My high school result was the second-best nationally in 1976 when I finished. So, many universities admitted me through Telegram at that time, and I had to start making choices of which to accept.”
