I Doubt APC Will Grant Me Justice – Godwin Obaseki



On Wednesday night, Edo Governor Godwin Obaseki expressed fear that he might not get justice from the All Progressive Congress (APC) Primary Screening Committee for Edo State Governorship.

He said this after two hours of drilling at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja by Prof. Jonathan Ayuba-led seven man committee.

Speaking to newsmen after the screening, Obaseki said: “I asked Oshiomhole to recuse himself from the process in the interests of peace and justice the last time I got here. But as a party man, like everyone else, I had to go through the screening.

“As I said, as a party man I’ve got engine through the screening process but I don’t think I’ll get justice because Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is a stakeholder in the Edo process.”

Shedding light on what happened at the screening session, the embattled aspirant said: “One of the questions was why I issued a gazette that would prevent the party from conducting direct Edo elections? I didn’t see that as anti-party activity? I just felt that if we put politics above Edo State people’s lives, we could miss that point.

Obaseki, who had arrived for screening at 8 pm at the National Secretariat, was in the company of Senator Domingo Obende.

The governor, previously reported for the verification exercise left hurriedly after a couple of minutes to attend to some state matters.
