Obaseki stated this on Wednesday, in Abuja while speaking with newsmen after submitting his expression of interest and nomination forms at the APC National Secretariat.
He said, “It is against natural justice for a man to be a judge in his own case.”
According to Obaseki, he and other governors under the party visited the APC National Leader, Ahmed Tinubum as part of efforts to strengthen the party and reassure him that they remained committed to building the party.
He said, “For me and my colleague Governors, we can’t see the party we are building destroyed. We should all drop our egos and work for our party.”
He noted that it was “wrong for any human to try to play God”.
The Edo State Governor noted that he will be victorious in the party’s primaries regardless of the mode chosen for the primaries in Edo.
He also denied claims that he purchased Governorship nomination forms for the Peoples Democratic Party, insisting he was “a party man to the core”.
