I dropped out of University of Ife – Dapo Abiodun



The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Ogun State, Mr. Dapo Abiodun, has said that although he was admitted to the University of Ife, now Obafemi Awolowo University, he did not graduate from there.

He revealed this during a programme on Channels Television, against the background of certificate falsification he has been accused of.

‘The  Punch’ quoted Abiodun as saying, “I never claimed to have finished from the University of Ife (now OAU). I did go to school in Ife. I went to school in the University of Ife but I didn’t graduate from the University of Ife. I never claimed to have obtained a degree from the University of Ife.

“But that (degree) is not from Ife. This has all been an attempt to mudsling and confuse the electorate, and it’s bundled with a lot of half-truths.

“I never claimed to have studied Accounting at the University of Ife. I never claimed to have graduated from the University of Ife. So, this issue has been presented as the presenter wanted it presented. I do have a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting and I would like to stop at that.

“The electorate know that I went to school and I have not misrepresented to anyone about my degrees. But it would be convenient for those who are intimidated and afraid of my electoral success to continue to attempt to disparage me and to present the matter as falsely as it suits them. The facts are being distorted but we will leave the matter since it is in court.”

or of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, has said one attribute of the late  former President Shehu Shagari was his  simplicity.
