JUST IN: MIT Clears Rhodes-Vivour of Certificate Forgery 

PDP Labor Lagos

An American university, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has said the governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, attended the school.

It would be recalled that a purported email from the prestigious school had earlier denied Rhodes-Vivour’s studentship, claiming that such name is not in its record.

Apparently, the email was fake news as the management of the school made it known that Rhodes-Vivour obtained a Master’s Degree in Architecture following his academic programme in the institution between 2005 and 2008.

Rhodes-Vivour had tweeted in reaction to the forgery allegation as fake news and another attempt by his opponents to divert attention from an issue-based campaign

“It has been brought to my attention that the purported email below is in circulation with respect to my degree from @MIT.

“This is untrue and another failed strategy the opposition is using to divert your attention from having an issue-based campaign,” his tweet partially read.

The Labour Party candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour is contesting to unseat Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State in an election scheduled to hold on the 18th of March.
