Obaseki disqualified from contesting in primary election

Governor Obaseki

The Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki was disqualified from re-contesting in the September 19 gubernatorial election by the All progressive congress (APC) the same party that presented him in the 2016 elections.

This announcement was made by the screening committee chairman, Johnathan Ayuba as the committee could not ascertain the authenticity of his HSC (High school certificate) and NYSC certificate. These certificates were otherwise seen as defective and that his NYSC certificate had Godwin Obasek instead of Obaseki written on it.

Although, Obaseki was disqualified along with some others, he had stated that he did not accept this rule and will not be appealing it.
