The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday met with the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Professor Ibrahim Gambari.
Naija News reports that the meeting is currently being held at the President Villa, Abuja.
The APC NWC was led by the party’s National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
The meeting with CoS, Prof. Gambari may be connected to the crisis rocking the party Oshiomhole’s home state, Edo State.
Naija News had reported that the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC had on Saturday affirmed the disqualification of Godwin Obaseki the Edo state governor and two others who had earlier disqualified by the screening panel.
The three aspirants disqualified by the APC were Governor Godwin Obaseki, Chris Ogiemwonyi, and Messrs Matthew Aigbuhuenze Iduoriyekemwen.
The screening committee led by Dr. Abubakar Fari, had disqualified Obaseki due to inconsistencies in the forms Obaseki submitted for scrutiny.
Fari said: “In the affidavit sworn to by Godwin Obaseki before the High Court Abuja, he stated under oath that he graduated from the University of Ibadan with a BA degree in Classical Studies in 1976. However, the university certificate he attached to his nomination form bears 1979 which is a material contradiction.’’
The committee also said it found it hard to believe Obaseki gained admission to study at the university with three credits without a proper A-levels or a diploma.
The APC panel added that the governor was in possession of two separate voter cards which is illegal. Fari added that the attestation letter of the Institute the governor claimed to have attended after secondary school, was not on the letterhead of the school.
