The Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who just announced himself as the party’s acting National Chairman, Victor Giadom, has nullified the disqualification of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Obaseki was last week disqualified from participating in the party’s primary election in Edo State due to what the screening and appeal committees called discrepancies in his certificate.
But Gaidom said at a news conference at the party’s national secretariat that the reports of the APC’s screening and appeal committees were nullified because “Oshiomhole acted as a judge in his own case.”
“As your acting National Chairman and presiding officer in the NWC, we therefore cancel the decision of the Screening and Appeal Committees of the former Chairman of the party on the Edo primary,” he added.
He said his action was sequel to a meeting held with other members of the National Working Committee (NWC) after Tuesday’s Appeal Court ruling affirming the suspension of the substantive National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole
