The APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has boasted that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), will win the Governorship Election in Edo State even if embattled Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki leaves the party.
Oshiomhole issued this boast after an emergency meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC.
Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, Oshiomhole said the APC would go ahead with June 22, 2020 governorship primary election.
Bittertruth Media recalls that th Monday APC NWC Meeting was held with the Chief of Staff (CoS) to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari.
The meeting was attended by the Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, as well as four members of the APC National Working Committee (NWC), including the National Vice Chairman (North West), Barr. Inuwa Abdulkadir; National Treasurer, Adamu Panda; National Welfare Officer, Ibrahim Masari; and National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu.
The meeting was part of efforts to address the fallout of the disqualification of the incumbent Governor Obaseki from participating in the state governorship primary election.

He expressed optimism that the process would be “free, fair, and transparent” and produce a candidate that would unify the party.
