APC National Working Committee visits Aso Rock to counter APC governors’ moves on Obaseki

APC National Working Committee visits Aso Rock to counter APC governors’ moves on Obaseki as the race for Edo state governorship continues.

In a development reported this morning, 16th of June, 2020, the All Progressives Congress’ National Working Committee, led by National Chairman, Adams Oshhiomole, paid a visit to the Aso rock yesterday. The visit which lasted from 4;30pm to 6pm on the 15th of June, was made in a bid to counter the moves being made by some APC governors who are trying to change the decision taken on Edo State Governor, Dr. Godwin Obaseki.

Dr. Godwin Obaseki, earlier this month had been disqualified from the APC governorship primaries on the basis of incomplete certification. The estranged Governor has, however, made some moves to salvage the situation, and has gotten the support of some other governors who have been trying to get the party’s decision changed in favour of the incumbent Governor.

In an anonymous statement given by a high ranking member of the party, while speaking to reporters at Punchng, he said A highly placed APC official privy to the NWC’s meeting spoke to one of our correspondents on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

“Some governors approached the Presidency to seek a political solution to the disqualification. At the meeting with the chief of staff, the NWC presented documents, including the Edo governor’s credentials, the screening committee relied on before disqualifying Obaseki.  The party officials presented three reports: Those of the screening committee, appeal committee and the NWC. The national chairman defended the decision of the party on Obaseki.”

After the meeting has been concluded, the National Chairman, Mr. Adams Oshiomole, spoke with reporters and said the ruling of the party remains standing as the party will not bend its rule for anybody under any circumstance.
