  • Obaseki’s disqualification compounds intrigues in Edo governorship contest

The disqualification of Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State from the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary has set the stage for unprecedented political gesticulations in the state with the moniker Heartbeat of the nation. It also, puts the governor and his party in a battle of wits that could lead to the political slip for either or both of them. Obaseki becomes the fourth governor in the Fourth Republic to be denied a re-election ticket by his party.

The Screening Committee of the All Progressives Congress APC for the Edo state Governorship primary election disqualified Godwin obaseki based on issues identified with his claimed Higher School Leaving Certificate from an Institute of Continuing Education, Benin. It was observed that no educational certificate such as HSC is known in Nigerian educational system. An attestation from the Institute of Continuing Education, Benin from where the alleged HSC which was indicated in the field of attendance as obtained is of no consequence, as it only attests that Obaseki was a student of the Institute. So what we had was like an attendance. It was just an attendance, it was not a result.

The committee stated this: “In our interaction with issues raised, we concluded that HSC was defective. The NYSC certificate and the fact that the aspirant took the party to court, the above aspirant, His Excellency, Godwin Obaseki therefore is not eligible to participate in the election. ”
