The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress has setup a seven-member election committee to handle the June 22 Edo State APC Governorship primary.
on the list is Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, who will also serve as Chairman, while Senator Ajibola Basiru, was named Secretary.
National Vice Chairman (South-South), Hilliard Eta, announced this while briefing the media about decisions taken by the NWC shortly after the appointment of Senator Abiola Ajimobi as Acting National Chairman.
Ajimobi was named after an Appeal Court upheld the suspension of the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole, on Tuesday.
He said an earlier announcement by the party’s Deputy National Secretary, Victor Giadom, cancelling the disqualification of the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, was “strange”.
According to him, Giadom lacked the grounds on which to take such a decision because he ceased to be a member of the NWC since he resigned his position to contest an election as Deputy Governor of Rivers State.
