However, kicking against the development, Prince Collins Eselemo who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC at the elections petitioned the ICPC alleging that Mutu (who is of the PDP) had Infact forged his way into office.

Eselemo acting through his lawyer, Fayenengigha Jacob wrote the ICPC that Nicholas Ebomo Mutu had no primary school certificate and that the university certificate he is parading was indeed forged. Amongst other things, the petitioners claim the name Mutu used in the National Assembly during his first tenure between 1999 and 2003 is different from what he used in subsequent terms.

The petitioners claim Mutu beared the name ‘Solo Ogoh’ when he represented the same Bomadi/Patani federal constituency of Delta state between 1999 and 2003 and so something is really fishy as to the reason he changed his identity to Nicholas Ebomo Mutu.

The ICPC has already begun investigations in the matter and has reportedly written the West African Examinations Council, WAEC for clarification on the matter. The anti-graft agency has also reached out to St. Clement University, Caicos Island, British West India where the PDP chieftain claimed to have obtained his degree.
