All Progressives Congress (APC) Screening Committee for Edo State Governorship election has declared Governor Godwin Obaseki unqualified due to some discrepancies in his educational certificates and NYSC.
Others also disqualified are Hon. Matthew Iduoroyekemwen and Egnr. Chris Ogiemwonyi.
The committee cleared Pastor Osagie Ize- Iyamu, Dr. Pius Odubu and Hon. Osaro Obazee.
The screening committee announced the disqualification while presenting its report to the APC National Working Committee, led by Adams Oshiomhole in Abuja on Friday.
Chairman of the panel, Prof. Jonathan Ayuba, while presenting the report explained that Obaseki was disqualified because the committee could not vouch for the authenticity of the Higher School Certificate he claimed but could not produce.
The committee held that the document he produced only attested to his attendance.
The seven-man screening committee led by Ayuba said the report is conclusive, adding that all members of the panel signed the report.
Ayuba said the committee was thorough in the process of conducting the exercise, adding that the process was recorded and the unedited recording would be made available to the party.
