Obaseki’s disqualification: I can’t comment on it now, we’re just following Party constitution – Oshiomhole
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, on Friday said the disqualification of current Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, from party primaries is justified by the party’s constitution.
Mr. Oshiomhole was speaking on Channels Television’s Democracy Day special program.
In his reaction on Friday Oshiomhole said the decision was subject to appeal.
“I can’t comment on it now,” Oshiomhole said. “We are just following Party constitution”. We have a screening committee, they turned out a report. And the report is subject to the appeal committee for anyone who chooses to appeal against the findings of the screening committee”.
“The purpose of the screening is to take nothing for granted. And until they go through the appeal process, I as the National Chairman cannot comment on it.”
Obaseki was disqualified by an APC screening committee from participating in the party’s primary election for the forthcoming governorship poll in Edo.
Mr. Obaseki has since rejected the screening committee’s decision.
