The ruling party All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state can rejoin the party if he wishes.
In a report obtained by Factboyz.com, while speaking to reporters on Thursday, the APC spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu, revealed that Obaseki voluntarily chose to resign from the party after he was disqualified from contesting in the forthcoming governorship primary in the state.
Issa-Onilu, also revealed that is already clear Obaseki won’t contest in the upcoming APC primaries in the state.
He said the decisions that led to Obaseki’s disqualification were not taken unilaterally.
He also noted that the appointment of the Screening Committee, Appeal Panel, and the Primary Election Committee was taken by the NWC and, therefore, could not be cancelled.
“The issue of him participating in the primary, that one is closed. We have moved beyond application by candidates, screening, and appeal. What we are trying to do now is the primary,”
