Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has been given a condition by the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, if he is willing to rejoin the party.
APC’s spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu said on Thursday that the governor voluntarily resigned from the party after he was disqualified from contesting in the forthcoming governorship primary in the state, adding that Obaseki would not participate in the governorship primaries if he comes back to APC.
According to him, the decisions that led to Obaseki’s disqualification were not taken unilaterally, noting that the appointment of the Screening Committee, Appeal Panel, and the Primary Election Committee was taken by the NWC and, therefore, could not be cancelled.
The issue of him participating in the primary, that one is closed. We have moved beyond application by candidates, screening, and appeal. What we are trying to do now is the primary.
