Spread the news

Comrade Adams Aliu Oshiomhole, the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state, has rejected the screening report for the Edo State APC Gubernatorial aspirants.

In a bold move, he has directed that two prominent names, Gen. Charles Arhiavbere and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, be excluded from the committee’s recommendation.

Oshiomhole’s rejection of the screening report comes as a shock to many, as it is uncommon for a party stalwart of his stature to openly disagree with the recommendations made by the screening committee.

The exclusion of Gen. Charles Arhiavbere and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu from the committee’s recommendation raises eyebrows, as both aspirants are considered to be strong contenders for the APC ticket in the forthcoming Edo State gubernatorial elections.

Airhiavbere, a former Army General, is believed not to be in the good books of a major party leader over their rivalry in the past while Pastor Ize-Iyamu who is believed to have strong connections around the state and with a capacity to win the election for the party, it is feared, may not be too loyal if he becomes governor despite having a working manifesto that will transform Edo state.
