The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state can rejoin the party if he wishes.
This condition was spelt out by on Thursday by Lanre Issa-Onilu, National Publicity Secretary of APC while speaking to reporters.
He said Obaseki would not participate in the governorship primaries if he comes back to APC and that the decisions that led to Obaseki’s disqualification were not taken unilaterally.
He said the appointment of the Screening Committee, Appeal Panel, and the Primary Election Committee was taken by the NWC and, therefore, could not be cancelled.
“The issue of him participating in the primary that one is closed. We have moved beyond application by candidates, screening, and appeal. What we are trying to do now is the primary,” he said.
