“I will make my next move after I meet Pres. Buhari” – Obaseki


The governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, has stated that his next move as regards the upcoming elections in Edo will be after he has met with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

Obaseki announced this through his Twitter handle on Sunday.

The governor tweeted “I appreciate the sustained show of solidarity, support, and goodwill from Edo people and Nigerians in the face of injustice by the @OfficialAPCNg screening committee. I will be making my next move known after I complete consultations with my supporters and meet with @MBuhari.”

The Screening Appeal Committee of the All Progressive Congress APC confirmed the disqualification of the governor from participating in the election primaries.

They gave reasons of discrepancies in the dates on the governor’s University of Ibadan certificates.

The leader of the appeal committee said “It is inconceivable that the same University will award two certificates with separate dates for the same graduate.

“We also find it difficult to vouch for the authenticity of his National Youth Service Corps certificate, there is no indication as to where he served.

“We find that he should be disqualified.”

Two other aspirants were disqualified, Chris Ogiemwonyi and Matthew Iduoriyekenwen. Iduoriyekenwen was then expelled from the party.

In the report received by the APC national chairman Oshiomhole, It was noted that governor Obaseki stated he received a Higher School Certificate from the Institute of Continuing Education in Benin, Edo state but the certificate was not provided. The only document the governor provided attested to his attendance but nothing proved he graduated.

The committee also cited that his NYSC certificate had the name “Obasek Godwin”.
