…accuses screening committee of doing hatchet job
A former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, says the ruling party will suffer “dire consequences” in Edo State over its disqualification of Governor Godwin Obaseki from the June 22 party primaries in the state.
Odigie-Oyegun accused the APC screening committee of doing a hatchet job just to install a stooge that will allow some people unfettered access to the state’s Treasury.
The former APC national chairman’s position was contained in a statement by his Media Adviser, Chief Ray Morphy, in Abuja, on Friday.
According to the statement, “While not a surprise, that disqualification is a clear indication that internal democracy has been murdered in APC, a party which we founded on the principles of fair play and good conscience!
“I daresay that APC will suffer dire consequences in Edo state if this disqualification is not speedily reversed.
“As a matter of fact, Oshiomhole is indeed the one who is guilty of anti-party (activities), not Obaseki. Oshiomhole is the one who is acting unconstitutionally, not Obaseki. I hope that Oshiomhole will not go down in history as the undertaker of APC.”
