Former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, has warned that the party will suffer the consequences of disqualifying Governor Godwin Obaseki from the Edo State gubernatorial primaries unless the decision is reversed.
Reacting to the disqualification of Obaseki on Friday, Oyegun in a statement by his aide, Ray Morphy, condemned the action of the the screening committee for what he described as hatchet job.
“The disqualification of Obaseki by the APC Screening Panel is a hatchet job aimed at installing a stooge that will allow some people unfettered access to Edo treasury.
“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!
“I dare say that APC will suffer dire consequences in Edo State if this disqualification is not speedily reversed.
“As a matter of fact, Oshiomole is indeed the one who is guilty of anti-party, not Obaseki. Oshiomole is the one who is acting unconstitutionally not Obaseki.
“I hope that Oshiomole will not go down in history as the undertaker of APC.”
