APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has reiterated the disqualification of the incumbent governor of Edo State, Mr Godwin Obaseki from contesting the gubernatorial election under the ruling All Progressive Party, APC.
He said because Godwin Obaseki forged his academic certificate and abused his powers as Governor of Edo State he cannot get APC ticket to contest the primary.
Earlier on Saturday, an APC appeal committee had upheld Obaseki’s disqualification which was first announced by the party’s screening committee on Friday.
The appeal committee, in a press briefing held in Abuja on Saturday, said it was aligning itself with the APC screening committee’s inability to vouch for the authenticity of the NYSC Certificate presented by Governor Obaseki.
Although he rejected the screening committee’s report, Obaseki has said he will not appeal the decision.
The NWC is the highest appeal body in the APC
