Adamawa lawmaker sacked for certificate forgery



The Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Yola, Adamawa State, has sacked another lawmaker of the All Progressives Congress, Musa Bororo, for certificate forgery.

Bororo was sacked over inconsistencies in his names as reflected on different documents submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission.

Before the tribunal ruling, Bororo represented Mubi South in the Adamawa State House Assembly.

Delivering the verdict, Justice Akanbi held that Bororo presented documents with conflicting names to INEC and therefore ruled that “Musa Umar” was not the same as “Musa Bororo”.

Justice Akanbi went ahead to order INEC to issue certificate of returned to Yakubu Dirbishi of the Peoples Democratic Party as winner of the election for the position.

Reacting to the ruling, Bororo disclosed that he will challenge the judgement at the appellate court.
