“I dare say that APC will suffer dire consequences—Odigie Oyegun


The disqualification of Godwin Obaseki from participating in the primary election of the All Progressives Congress APC, in Edo State, by the screening committee has elicited varied reactions from different quarters. Among those who swiftly reacted to this latest development is the former national chairman of the party Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

Odigie-Oyegun described the outcome of the screening as a hatchet job aimed at installing a stooge that will allow some people unfettered access to the Edo treasury.

He made this assertion in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Chief Ray Morphy, in Abuja, on Friday.

The statement read in part, “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 dare say 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.”
