CERTIFICATE SCANDAL : NYSC Cleared Me Of Certificate Forgery Allegation – Imo Speaker



The Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Chi­ji Collins, has said that he has no questions to answer on authenticity of his education credentials.

Recall, the Speak­er had come under media attacks from opponents who alleged him of pa­rading himself with counterfeit certificates and demanded for his persecution.

BlazeNewz gathered that in November last year, an ad-hoc committee headed by Chigozie Nwaneri, former Majority Leader, was set up by the House, to investigate the matter after a journalist had made the allegation.

Also, Hon. Lawman Du­ruji, former lawmaker, had weekend accused the Speak­er of persuading the ad-hoc committee to bury the matter, insisting that such actions would not save him from impending doom soon.

Duruji had said: “Quote me, Chiji parades fake credentials, his PhD is fake and he also forged NYSC exemption cer­tificate. Why has he refused to publish his certificate for public scrutiny? No amount of delay tactics and intimidation can save him this time.”

But, Collins insisted that all his credentials were ver­ifiable and that his position was not under any threat.

According to him, NYSC had also cleared him on the said allegations and challenged his traducers to take him to court if they felt otherwise.

He said: “My educational certificate has been in the public domain since 1992 when I ran for the Senate, verifiable and the whole world has gone to pick it up.

“The university I attend­ed, Nigerians are still there till tomorrow. So, the school I went is not a hidden school.”
