PDP Elected House Of Rep Member Loses Seat Over Certificate Forgery


A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, elected member of the House
of Representatives, Christian Abah, has lost his seat after a Federal High
Court in Abuja today directed the Independent National Electoral Commission
(INEC) to invalidate the certificate of return earlier issued to him due to
certificate forgery.

In his ruling, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, in the suit filed by
Hassan saleh, contesting Abah’s eligibility to stand for the election, held
that the allegation of certificate forgery levelled against the first
respondent (Abah) has been proved to be true beyond reasonable doubts.
It was proved that Abah forged the National Diploma (ND)
certificate in Accountancy he claimed to obtain from the Federal Polytechnic
Mubi, Adamawa, in 1985 and which he submitted to the INEC.
The judge however urged the Inspector General of Police to
prosecute Mr Abah.
Abah, was returned unopposed by the INEC as he was the only
candidate fielded for the March 28, 2015 Presidential and National Assembly
elections in his constituency.
