With the overwhelming desperation that is typical of politicians in Delta State, Leonard Okuwe Ogor has proven to be a leopard trying to change its skin with an alleged presentation of false and over bloated documents to the electoral umpire (INEC) ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Documents obtained by SecretReporters showed that the unrepentant House of Representatives member who has been in the Green Chamber since 2003 till date and showing no signs of relinquishing power to a younger generation, seems to be in the habit of submitting fresh age declarations in his form C.F. 001 for each election year as though he is suffering from minor amnesia.
In perusing through his INEC form, this online news uncovered that the lawmaker representing Isoko North/South Federal Constituency may have deceit embedded in his DNA, as he allegedly used cunning means in swaying the management of Chartered Institute of Administration into believing that he had a valid O`Level as at 2005 when he started a program with them after which he proceeded to complete other levels of the program until 2008, all this he did while in office purportedly as a ghost student, or perhaps shuttling between Abuja and Lagos on a weekly basis using tax payer’s money.
SecretReporters scrutiny of his O`Level result showed that he swore an affidavit in 2010 stating that his West Africa Examination Certificate (WAEC) was burnt in a fire accident which occurred at his then residence at 37 Adetayo Shode Street, Surulere, Lagos in 1998 which leaves much to be answered as to how he got admitted into the institute in 2005 without presenting the basic requirement of O`level result or an affidavit to the management but only submitted a distorted transcript.
This is as findings reveal that the attestation letter written by the principal of his Alma-mater which was done in a bid to cover his already dirty track was dated 2nd November 2012 signalling that Leo Ogor allegedly did not submit a valid WAEC result from 2003 for his first election until the time of his receipt of the attestation letter.
More shocking, was the laughable claim by the spurious lawmaker that he attended the University of London to study for an international programme in Negotiation and Strategic Studies in 2012. However, as usual, he only attached a “Confirmation of Payment Approval” to his INEC form without an admission letter or a valid certificate.
Earlier this year, the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, holding the baton for Isoko Federal Constituency had declared himself the life occupant of the position allegedly boasting that he would only hand power over to his son as his successor. He has been down with stroke since the inception of this administration and unable to perform his functions as a lawmaker.
He will be running against the All Progressive Congress (APC)
Candidate, Mr Joel Thomas Onowakpo Ewomazino who has valid WAEC result, but in
two sittings. Joel according to polls carried out in Isoko is likely to win
this election holding this Saturday.
