Obaseki rejects APC committee's disqualification, swears not to appeal the decision

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki who was recently disqualified from contesting the APC primaries by the APC electoral screening committee because of the allegations on his academic qualification, has rejected his disqualification and vows not to appeal the decision. According to the statement made on Friday by the Governor's Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr Crusoe Osagie, who claimed that the governor's disqualification is a well-planned plot of Adams Oshiomhole the National chairman of the All progressive congress(APC) who is currently not in good terms with the governor. in the statement, Osagie said, "We have watched the mockery of democratic process, which Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is administering and superintending over in our great party, the All Progressives Congress. It has been an unfortunate, disheartening and dreadful spectacle. We had initially asserted that going by the open display and enthronement of illegality by one man in the party that comprises several organs and eminent personalities, there is no way that Governor Godwin Obaseki would get a fair assessment in the run-up to the nomination of candidates to fly the flag of the party in the forthcoming Edo gubernatorial election." 

He also accused the APC party of allowing Comrade Adams to bring Shame to the party and dragged the party name to the ground, "It is unfortunate that this open show of shame, illegality and travesty of justice is the brand of democracy which Comrade Oshiomhole has reduced the APC into. The situation is quite saddening because this is a party supposedly reputed for change, equity and social justice." He laments.

He also said the governor would not challenge the committee's decision 
"We have therefore decided that it would be an effort in futility to appeal whatever the unjust outcome of the evaluation and screening process of the APC will be, especially when Comrade Oshiomhole has declared that he is the Supreme Court and ultimate determiner of the fate and future of our great party. We wish Oshiomhole luck in his maladministration of the party and trust that the Almighty will help our country to find the path to true liberty, freedom and justice."  He added. He advised all party members and the teeming supporters of the  Governor to remain calm and await further directives.
