During the extraordinary plenary session of the Senate on Monday, there was a murmur about the selection of ministerial candidates for President Bola Tinubu at the Eng. Teacher. Joseph Terlomon Utsev, a candidate from Benue State, stated that he began primary education when he was four years old.
According to Leadership News, after introducing himself, he stated that he was born in 1980 and began primary school in 1984. Later, Senator Tokunbo Aberu of East Lagos questioned the candidate to confirm his date of birth and when he began his studies.
Utsev insists he was born in 1980 and started primary school in 1984, a development that caused whispers and then an uproar in the Senate.
In an apparent attempt to salvage the situation, the President of the Senate asked Senator Patrick Aba Moro of Benue State to comment on the developments, but his intervention caused more uproar at the founder. The law states that the discrepancy in the candidate’s CV is just a typo.
