Governor Ortom’s Certificate Is Fake – Akume

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has been exposed by his former political godfather, Senator George Akume…   

“Ortom said he has PhD from the Commonwealth University of Berlin, but there is nothing like Commonwealth University. At least, I’m a graduate of the University of Ibadan, where I bagged my first and second degrees. I am also a fellow of the Institute of Management and I have honourary PhD from the University of Jos.”
