Godwin Obaseki, the Edo state Governor has just reacted to the decision of the APC to disqualify him from participating in the party’s governorship primaries. The primaries is slated this June 22, 2020 while the state governorship election is slated for September 19, 2020.
Prof. Jonathan Ayuba who is the screening committee chairman said the state Governor, Obaseki and two others did not meet the requirement.
Obaseki in a statement through his spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, said it is unfortunate that this “open show of shame, illegality, and travesty of justice is the brand of democracy which Comrade Oshiomhole has reduced the APC to”.
The governor added that,
“We have therefore decided that it would be an effort in futility to appeal whatever the unjust outcome of the evaluation and screening process of the APC will be, especially when Comrade Oshiomhole has declared that he is the Supreme Court and ultimate determiner of the fate and future of our great party.
We wish Oshiomhole well in his maladministration of the party and trust that the Almighty will help our country to find the path to true liberty, freedom, and Justice.”
The state governorship election is slated for September 19, 2020.
