APC declares Edo governorship primaries inconclusive

By Nudoiba Ojen

The National Working Committee NWC of the All Progressives Congress has declared last Saturday’s Governorship Primary Election in Edo State as inconclusive.

The APC NWC took the decision
late Tuesday after an emergency meeting of the NWC.

APC spokesman, Felix Morka, who spoke while addressing newsmen after the meeting, said; “The NWC resolves that the Edo State governorship primary election has not been completed and has now fixed Thursday, February 22, 2024 for the completion of the APC primary election process.”

Recall that three aspirants had been declared winners of the primary election at different quarters.

The Local Government returning officers for the primary election, led by Babatunde Ojo had on Saturday declared Anamero Dekeri, a serving House of Representatives member, winner of the exercise.

The development came after Chairman of the Primary Election Committee and Imo state Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma had declared another federal lawmaker, Dennis Idahosa, winner of the exercise.

On his part, returning Officer of the exercise, Stanley Ugboaja had declared Senator Monday Okpebholo as winner.

The three “candidates” had since demanded that the NWC issues them a Certificate of Return.
