A Past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun, states the choice of the ruling party to invalidate Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, from its June 22 governorship primaries might mean its ruin in the Edo 2020 governorship election slated for September.
The former APC Chairman claimed the claims of anti-party activities levelled against the guv were false, emphasizing that Obaseki’s arch-enemy as well as current National Chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole ought to be the one answering questions for anti-party activities.
Surgenig report that the previous APC National Chairman made this remark in a declaration authorized by his media assistant, Chief Ray Morphy, a couple of hrs after the APC disqualify Obaseki.
“I daresay that APC will suffer dire consequences in Edo state if this disqualification is not speedily reversed.
“While not a surprise, that disqualification is a clear indication that internal democracy has been murdered in APC, a party which we founded on the principles of fair play and good conscience!
“As a matter of fact, Oshiomhole is indeed the one who is guilty of anti-party (activities), not Obaseki.
“Oshiomhole is the one who is acting unconstitutionally not Godwin. I hope that Oshiomhole will not go down in history as the undertaker of APC,” Odigie-Oyegun said.
Meanwhile, Governor Obaseki has vowed not to appeal his disqualification by the party’s screening panel for the June 22 APC primaries.
