According to Vanguard, documents submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), show discrepancies in Audu’s academic qualifications and other means of identification.

It said the discrepancies appear in a number of documents, and show a trail similar to the inconsistencies found in the academic credentials of the sacked deputy governor of Bayelsa State, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, which caused the APC to lose the state to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
