[BREAKING] Edo Guber: Labour Party Aspirant Withdraws From Race, Cites Monetisation 

Published

on

By

A Labour Party governorship aspirant in the forthcoming election in Edo State, Prince Tom Iseghohi, has withdrawn from the ongoing primary of the party.

In a letter addressed to the National Chairman of the party, Julius Aburr, the aspirant cited lack of “transparency and the monetization of the process,” as reason for his withdrawal.

According to him, “I have observed with keen interest the process that is being utilized to nominate the gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party. As a participant in the process, I am disappointed by the lack of transparency and the monetization of the process at the expense of selection of the best candidate with the popularity within the party and the capacity to win the general elections.

Why Uzodimma Was Replaced As Edo Gov Primary Chair — APC

Published

on

By

The ruling All Progressives Congress on Thursday clarified the reason Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State was replaced with his Cross River counterpart, Bassey Otu, as Chairman of the Edo governorship primary election.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, said the governor was “unavoidably unavailable” to complete the primary election, hence the need to replace him with his deputy.

The party announced the changes in a statement issued by APC National Organising Secretary, Sulaiman Argungu on Wednesday.

The changes were made a few hours after four leading Edo State governorship aspirants passed a vote of no confidence in the governor.

The governor had announced Dennis Idahosa as the winner while returning officer Stanley Ugboaja declared Monday Okpebholo as the winner.

Elsewhere, Ojo Babatunde, who claimed to be representing the returning officers in all the local governments, declared Anamero Dekeri the winner of the election.

On Tuesday, the national leadership of the APC in Abuja declared Saturday’s primary inconclusive.

The ruling party, however, raised an eyebrow when a section of the media reported that the Imo State governor was sacked.

The National Publicity Secretary of the APC appealed for understanding, saying the party did not sack Uzodimma as reported.

Morka said, “The attention of the All Progressives Congress has been drawn to reports in sections of the media suggesting that the Governor of Imo State, and Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, His Excellency, Hope Uzodinma, was sacked or dropped as the Chairman of the Edo Gubernatorial Primary Election Committee, and replaced with the Governor of Cross River State, His Excellency, Bassey Otu.

“We wish to clarify that Governor Uzodinma was neither “sacked” nor “dropped”, as has been erroneously reported, but was unavoidably unavailable to lead the completion of the Party’s Edo State Gubernatorial Primary Election Process due to his prior scheduled attendance of, and presentation of a report, to the National Economic Council meeting today February 22, 2024.

“As a result, His Excellency Bassey Otu, Governor of Cross Rivers State, who was the Deputy Chairman of the Committee, graciously accepted to serve as Chairman, and to complete the Edo State Gubernatorial Primary Election Process.”
