John Odigie-Oyegun, the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), revealed that, the party will suffer “severe consequences” in Edo State for ineligible of Governor Godwin Obaseki.


Governor Godwin Obaseki, who was praying for re-election, was disqualified on Friday by the APC screening panel from contesting in the party’s primary planned for June 22 ahead of polls in September.


Ray Morphy, the media adviser to Odigie-Oyegun diclosed that Obaseki’s disqualification was to pave way to the set up of a dupe to make direct access to state funds.


“While not a surprise, that disqualification is a clear indication that internal democracy has been murdered in APC, a party which we founded on the principles of fair play and good conscience!” the statement read.


“I dare say that APC will suffer dire consequences in Edo state if this disqualification is not speedily reversed.


“As a matter of fact, Oshiomhole is indeed the one who is guilty of anti-party (activities), not Obaseki. Oshiomhole is the one who is acting unconstitutionally not Obaseki. I hope that Oshiomhole will not go down in history as the undertaker of APC.”

Meanwhile Governor Godwin Obaseki was disqualified to felicitate June 12.
