Edo State Governor, Godwin 0baseki

The All Progressive Congress (APC) screening committee has disqualified the governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, and two others from participating in the Edo Governorship election.

Obaseki according to the screening committee was unfit to qualify on the grounds that his HSC and NYSC certificates are defective.

Announcing the disqualification at the party headquarters in Abuja, the chairman of the screening committee, Professor Jonathan Ayuba, said only three aspirants were qualified to contest for the primary.

According to the screening committee, Obaseki presented the Higher School Certificate which the panel said was defective as no such certificate in existence, adding that the National Youth Service Corps certificate he presented did not have his name written properly.

Based on these, the committee said the governor is not qualified to contest for the party primary scheduled for June 22.
