Irfaan Ali clears the air on academic credentials
Following a report carried by Prime News questioning the validity of his academic credentials, People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Parliamentarian, Irfaan Ali is seeking to put the issue to rest.
Ali, who is in the running with others to become the PPP’s next Presidential Candidate, issued the following statement Saturday:
I have noted a contrived, concerted campaign to discredit and misrepresent my academic credentials. I have never presented any inaccurate academic achievements.
I will not give credence to such organised slander to discredit my wide-ranging academic progress by responding to every single element of the mischievous information being peddled and which objective is to undermine my effort to serve as the PPP Presidential Candidate.
Certificates reflecting my diplomas and degrees are already in the public domain for scrutiny. Further, I am awaiting additional official transcripts from institutions I have completed studies which I will have no hesitation in making public too.
I will not be deterred nor intimidated.
