BREAKING: APC Disqualifies Gov. Obaseki for Edo Elections

The All Progressives Congress(APC) has disqualified the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, and two others from contesting in the July 22 governorship primary election in Edo State.

The candidates were disqualified by the Screening Committee. The announcement of the disqualification was made the public while presenting its report to the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee in Abuja on Friday.

Apart from Obaseki, the two other disqualified aspirants are Chris Ogiemwonyi and Mathew Iduoriyekenwen.

Chairman of the panel, Prof. Jonathan Ayuba, while presenting the report explained that Obaseki was disqualified because the committee could not vouch for the authenticity of the Higher School Certificate he claimed but could not produce.

The committee held that the document he produced only attested to his attendance.
