The All Progressives Congress (APC) has disqualified Governor Godwin Obaseki from contesting the party governorship primary in Edo State.
Obaseki was disqualified by the APC screening committee for the Edo governorship primary.
Jonathan Ayuba, chairman of the screening committee, confirmed this while presenting his report to Adams Oshiomhole, APC national chairman, at the national secretariat in Abuja.
Naija News understands Obaseki was disqualified by the screening committee on the grounds that his HSC and NYSC certificates are defective.
Just before he was eventually disqualified, Obaseki, had predicted that there were plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its National Chairman of planning to disqualify him from the June 22 primary election.
This he made known in a statement released today through his media aide, Crusoe Osagie.
He condemned the “extreme display of lawlessness and dictatorship by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole”.
