Just before he was eventually disqualified, the Edo state Governor, Godwin Obaseki, claimed that there are 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”.
According the statement, the chairman is planning to announce the disqualification of the governor in a press conference.
The statement said Oshiomhole has buried all due process and broken all the laws in the books in his ultimate quest to crown himself as the godfather of politics in Edo State.
He further accused Oshiomhole of claiming that “he is the Supreme Court and the ultimate determiner of the fate of aspirants for governorship seat under the APC”.
He alleged that Oshiomhole has executed “his pre-conceived agenda” of stopping him from flying the flag of the party at all cost.
