On the presentation of the 8-page document, Ananaba sought the court’s permission for the bearer of the document to leave because she had a scheduled flight to catch to Abuja.

In his reaction, the counsel to All Progressives Congress (APC), Lateef Fagbemi, said that while N305,000 was paid for the documents, two out of the eight pages brought before the court by INEC are not legible and blurry.

Fagbemi’s words:

“WAEC GCE Certificate of Education content is not legible except for signature and Testimonial obtained from Ede Muslim Grammar School is not clear.”

Further reacting to Fegbemi’s submission, Ananaba said that the INEC official can not answer on the legibility of the documents submitted by the commission to the tribunal.

“Also in the testimonial, the address of the school attended was missing. So, the legible certificates must be produced.”

Having heard all the arguments, Justice Kume adjourned the matter till Saturday, December 3, to allow the electoral body present clearer documents before the court.
