Edo APC guber primaries hold June 18
Following the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct the Edo State governorship election on September 10, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has fixed its governorship primaries for June 18.
National Organising Secretary of the party, Senator Osita Izunaso who briefed reporters at the National Secretariat of the party yesterday, disclosed that the recently constituted peace and reconciliatory committee would broker peace among aggrieved members of the party in the state.
He said the party has fixed a stakeholders’ meeting on the poll for May16, adding that sale of form commences thereafter and ends on June 3.
Meanwhile, Governor Adams Oshiomhole has dismissed insinuations and reports that he had a hand in the impeachment of the former Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Victor Edoror.
Speaking when the new Speaker, Elizabeth Ativie led other principal officers and members of the Assembly to him in his office yesterday in Benin City, the governor said: “Let me on behalf of myself, the government and the great people of Edo State congratulate you, my sister and my comrade, Rt. Hon. Elizabeth Ativie on your election as the Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, and in the process making history as the first female speaker of the House of Assembly from the time we were in the Mid-West Region to Bendel State and Edo State. I hope that the spirit of our women that have always desired that they occupy leadership positions and God’s wisdom and mercy will help you to get all the wisdom you needed, the courage and the good health to function in your capacity as the speaker”.
