APC Inaugurates Edo Governorship Primary Election, Appeal Committees

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has inaugurated the Edo State Governorship Primary Election and Appeal committees.

The inauguration ceremony held on Thursday inside the APC National Executive Council (NEC) hall at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

Members of the committees were inaugurated by the National Working Committee (NWC)-backed acting National Chairman, Hilliard Eta.

In his remarks, Eta announced that the party has commenced the process for the governorship election in Edo State with the screening exercise.

He named the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, as the chairman of the election committee which has Senator Ajibola Bashiru as its secretary, and five other members.

They are Abdullahi Abass, Ibrahim Sabo, Ocho Obioma, Amina Muhammed, Gbenga Elegbeleye.

According to the acting national chairman, the committee has a responsibility to ensure that the primary election in Edo State is successful.

He also named the members of the Primary Election Appeal Committee which has Dr Yusuf Naaji as chairman and Dr Kayode Ajulo as its secretary, with Umar Ahmed, Nasiru Junju, and Rasaq Bamu as members.

Eta explained that members of both committees were carefully chosen to ensure a hitch-free governorship primary election in Edo State.

In his acceptance speech, Governor Uzodinma gave an assurance that his committee would do justice to the assignment given to them.

He decried that recent events have shown that some persons were out to destroy the party, but they would work hard to retain the governorship seat in Edo.

The governor added that the APC remains determined to field the best candidate in the September 19 election.

In the absence of the Chairman of the appeal committee, Mr Ajulo gave an assurance that they would perform their task as impartial judges.
