My Missing WAEC Certificate Was The Best in 1976 – PDP Vice Presidential Candidate, Okowa Speaks

Vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who doubles as incumbent Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that his missing WAEC result was the second best in 1976.

Okowa debunked reports that he does not have a WAEC result, adding that, he was an outstanding student at secondary school level.

The governor made the disclosure at the Delta State University of Science and Technology, Ozoro.

He added that virtually all universities in the country offered him admission based on his outstanding performance in WASC and Higher School Certificate (HSC) examinations.

He said media reports about his missing result were “deliberate wrong perception and unnecessary politics.”

He said, “On the issue of my certificate, I think it is a misconception. People try to play politics with everything.

“Yes, I lost my WAEC certificate but I have the print out 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 grade in higher school at that time.
