Ahead of the forthcoming governorship election in Edo state, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has inaugurated the state's election and appeal panel.
The panel is tasked to conduct the June 22 party primary election for the emergence of its flag bearer ahead of the election.
Represented by Hon. Hillard Etagbo Eta, the acting national chairman, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, urged the panel to ensure the success of the task given to them.
The Nation reports that the seven-man election panel is headed by Imo governor, Senator Hope Uzordinma, and Senator Ajibola Bashiru as secretary.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported it started like a small setback that would soon vanish when Governor Godwin Obaseki and his former mentor, boss and godfather, Adams Oshiomhole began to set a warpath against each other.
The relationship got more frosty and estranged as Obaseki attacked his predecessor in a fierce political rift that became pronounced in June 2019.
Oshiomhole felt betrayed and buffeted when the Edo governor made an attempt to send him into oblivion and decided to take his pound of flesh after surviving the first blow.
The feud festered and hit a climax on Tuesday, June 16. Obaseki resigned his membership of APC in a strange circumstance.
The embattled governor took a bow out of the ruling party like a feisty warrior after collapsed attempts to make the warring parties in Edo APC bury their grievances.
He will announce his new political home in due course but there are indications he will move to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In another development, Legit.ng had reported about Ajimobi being in a coma.
The former governor who is said to be on a ventilator for some time now is battling for his life having contracted coronavirus, PM News reports.
Ajimobi who is receiving treatment in Lagos at the First Cardiology Consultants Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos is the vice-chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
