Edo 2020: Obaseki Will be re-elected- APC Chairman



Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC,  in Edo state, Anselm Ojezua, has reacted to the failure governor Godwin Obaseki to scale through screening due to discrepancies in his results

The state party chairman said that Obaseki will still be reelected as governor of the state. Ojezua said this on Friday in reaction to the governor’s chances of reelection.

Recall that APC disqualifies Gov Obaseki

 Ojezua said, “they didn’t say he will not contest the election but that he will not contest under the platform of the APC.

“By tomorrow, we will meet and be in a position to make a proper statement on what the future holds for the party in Edo State.”

He called for calm among party members and supporters following what he described as unjust disqualification of governor Obaseki from contesting the Governorship primary of the party.

He said the governor has performed credibly well and will be reelected for a second term.

 According to him, the result didn’t come as a surprise as the governor had alluded to the fact that he will not get justice from the screening exercise.

He however appealed to the supporters of the party in the State to remain calm as the leadership of the party will meet on Saturday, to properly respond to the report of the committee.
