BREAKING: APC gives conditions for Obaseki rejoining party

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state can rejoin the party if he wishes.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, the APC spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the governor voluntarily resigned from the party after he was disqualified from contesting in the forthcoming governorship primary in the state.

Issa-Onilu, however, said Obaseki would not participate in the governorship primaries if he comes back to APC. He said the decisions that led to Obaseki’s disqualification were not taken unilaterally.

He 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,” he said.

POLITICS NIGERIA earlier reported that Obaseki was disqualified from the APC’s Edo gubernatorial primaries last week, by a screening committee over issues with his certificates. Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shuaibu have also resigned from the party.
