Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, has demanded that the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, stay away from the party’s primaries of June 22, 2020.
While talking to journalists after submitting his expression of interest and nomination forms, the governor said the presence of the national chairman may jeopardise fair play in the governorship race.
“I am using this opportunity to call on Oshiomhole to recuse himself from the Edo nomination process because he is an interested party. It is against natural justice for a man to be a judge in his own case. So I think the honourable thing for him to do is to recuse himself and let us have a free process and build our party,” he said.
He also said he prefers indirect mode of primaries to determine the party’s flag-bearer in the state.
