Apart from Obaseki, the two other disqualified aspirants are Chris Ogiemwonyi and Mathew Iduoriyekenwen.
Chairman of the panel, Prof . Jonathan Ayuba, while presenting the report explained that Obaseki was disqualified because the committee could not vouch for the authenticity of the Higher School Certificate he claimed but could not produce .

The seven -man screening committee led by Ayuba said the report is conclusive , adding that all members of the panel signed the report .
