EDO: APC NATIONAL CHAIRMAN, ADAMS OSHIOMHOLE REACTS TO GOVERNOR OBASEKI'S DISQUALIFICATION
APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole on Friday, June 12, reacted to Governor Godwin Obaseki's disqualification from Edo Party primaries, saying the APC constitution justifies the move.
According to him, the Party's constitution permits Obaseki to appeal to the Screening Committee's verdict.
"We are just following our Party constitution. We have a screening committee. They turned out a report. And the report is subject to the appeal committee for anyone who chooses to appeal against the findings of the screening committee," Oshiomole said during a Democracy Day program on Channels TV.
However, Governor Obaseki, while responding to the Screening Committee's decision to disqualify him, said he would not appeal the verdict.
In a statement released by Mr. Crusoe Osagie, Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Obaseki said his team agreed that it would be an effort in futility to appeal the unjust outcome of the evaluation and screening process of the APC.
