has disqualified the incumbent governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, and two others from participating in the Edo Governorship election.

In the words of a member of the screening committee, who spoke to, Obaseke was unfit to qualify on the grounds that his HSC and NYSC certificates are defective.

However, the Edo state government in a media advisory issued Friday, June 12th, described the screening exercise as unjust, noting that it will not appeal the decision.

Full text of the press statement issued by Crusoe Osagie, Special Adviser to Edo State Governor on Media and Communication, reads:


“We have watched the mockery of the democratic process, which Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, is administering and superintending over in our great party the All Progressives Congress (APC). It has been an unfortunate, disheartening and dreadful spectacle.”

“We had initially asserted that going by the open display and enthronement of illegality by one man in the party that comprises several organs and eminent personalities, there is no way that Governor Godwin Obaseki would get a fair assessment in the run-up to the nomination of candidates to fly the flag of the party in the forthcoming Edo gubernatorial election.”

“It is unfortunate that this open show of shame, illegality and travesty of justice is the brand of democracy which Comrade Oshiomhole has reduced the APC into. The situation is quite saddening because this is a party supposedly reputed for change, equity and social justice.”


“We have therefore decided that it would be effort in futility to appeal whatever the unjust outcome of the evaluation and screening process of the APC will be, especially when Comrade Oshiomhole has declared that he is the Supreme Court and ultimate determiner of the fate and future of our great party.”


“We wish Oshiomhole well in his maladministration of the party and trust that the Almighty will help our country to find the path to true liberty, freedom and justice.”


“Long live Edo State. Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria”
