The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Edo State, has recommended the expulsion of Governor Godwin Obaseki, and the Chairman of the party, Anselm Ojezua as well as the state women leader, Dr Aisosa Amadasun from the party.
Speaking at a news conference in Benin City on Sunday, the David Imuse-led executive, also commended the disqualification of Governor Obaseki by the party’s governorship primaries screening committee, noting that the decision will help the party avert a repeat of the scenario which played out in Bayelsa State.
Imuse cited anti-party activities, dragging the party to court without exploring all available internal dispute resolution options as some of the wrongs of those recommended. On Saturday, the National Working Committee had confirmed that the governor was disqualified from participating in the party’s primaries for the upcoming governorship election.
According to the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, Obaseki in addition to presenting faulty certificates, had abused his powers as Governor of the state. He also accused Obaseki of orchestrating the inauguration of only nine out of 24 members of the State House of Assembly, an act he described as unacceptable to the party.
