Victor Giadom of Apc declares Obaseki’s disqualification, null and void


The Acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Victor Giadom has cancelled the screening for the Edo State governorship primary.

Addressing newsmen at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja, he declared that the appointment of Senator Abiola Ajimobi as acting national chairman of the party cannot stand on the basis that it is illegal and unconstitutional.

The Rivers State-born APC chieftain referred to a subsisting court order issued on the 16 of March 2020 by Justice S.U Bature in suit no FCT /HC/M/6447/2020 as the basis for his ascension to the office of the Acting Chairman of the APC.

He argued that order could not be immediately effected at that time because of the temporary reprieve Adams Oshiomhole got from the court of appeal on the same day.

Giadom, flanked by the deputy national organising secretary, Muhammed Sani Ibrahim, further declared the disqualification of Governor Godwin Obaseki from contesting in the Edo state governorship primaries as null and void.

He thereby directed governorship aspirants of the party in Edo state to report to the national secretariat of the party in Abuja between today and tomorrow to come for a fresh screening exercise in line with the party constitution.

Giadom, who claimed the decision was in tandem with the wishes of the members of the APC national working committee (NWC), declared that Emmanuel Ibediro ceases to be the national organising secretary of the party in line with an Abuja court order FHC/ABJ/CS/733//2018.
