The All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman Com. Adams Oshiomhole inaugurate the screening committee members for Edo governorship aspirants on Monday 9th June.
The chairman said, you can only become an aspirant after the committee has satisfied you and then recommend you to the national working committee members who will then confirm your eligibility. “We want to be more strict with the issue of screening this time, so that we won’t have issues of court disqualifying anyone, especially with the case of Bayelsa State” he said.
The national chairman also made announcement of Claims and Objectives, so that if anyone has something to say about any of the candidates, can be brought forward. This is a new innovation from the party to get things right.
He said, “we need to be very careful to avoid loosing elections”. The screening is expected to be very very vigorous to show we have learnt a lesson from Bayelsa State.
The national chairman also shared the party constitution with the selected screening committee members.
