The All Progressives Congress (APC) is set to conduct its primary election for the forthcoming governorship poll in Edo State. This comes amid the lingering crisis in the party which led to the suspension of the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, and the exit of the incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki, from the party.
The Secretary of the APC Governorship Primary Election Committee, Ajibola Bashiru, said on Sunday that nothing would stop the election from holding on Monday. We have met with the leadership of the state. We have appointed presiding officers in line with the guidelines of the party at local government and ward levels.”
According to him, the exercise will commence by 8am at all 192 wards in 18 local government areas of the state.
