Certificate Scandal Worry Ogun APC Governorship Candidate, Dapo Abiodun

Billionaire businessman and All Progressive Congress Ogun governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun is presently not in the right frame of mind.

His pensive mood is the certificate scandal currently rocking his image as the candidate of the ruling party.

Abiodun’s post-secondary school qualification is being questioned.

According to the information pieced together by Happenings Magazine, Dapo only declared his West African School Certificate (1978) in the form CF001, he submitted to the INEC on October 23, 2018, ahead of the general election.

Reports have it that when he ran for a senatorial seat in 2015, he claimed to have attended the University of Ile-Ife, graduating in 1986.

He studied at Kennesaw University, Atlanta, Georgia, United States and graduated in 1989.

All these are in the form with the affidavit he swore to at the High Court, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Abiodun listed  B.A (Hons) Accounting as degree he received in 1986 but didn’t release the course and qualification at the Kennesaw State University.

A further dig into the website of his company, Heyden Petroleum, has under his name listed B.Sc Civil Engineering and BA Accounting.

The argument is, if Abiodun went immediately to Kennesaw after graduating from Ife in 1986, he would not have finished his four-year course before 1990.

There are strong indications that Abiodun did not serve his compulsory National Youth Service, as he claimed to have finished his first degree in 1986.

Born on May 29,1960, he was 26 in 1986, claiming to have finished his first degree. The age limit for national service is 30

Aside from the fact that Abiodun committed perjury either in 2014 or 2018, investigation shows that he skipped the national youth service, which is punishable under the law.
