A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Suleiman Wambai, has urged Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki not to celebrate his victory in the last gubernatorial election yet.

Wambai, who is the immediate past National Vice Chairman, north-central of the APC made the declaration during an interview session.

According to him, there are two grounds on which the courts could nullify the election of the Edo state governor.

Wambai who is positive that APC will reclaim Edo state said that the court could nullify the election based on a technicality, that Obaseki might be sacked by the court if he fails to show that he is qualified to contest the Edo election.

He said: “Obaseki has no paper and we are waiting to see the governor, any court or government that will prove that Obaseki is qualified.”

Wambai also raised another possibility that Obaseki’s election might be nullified because he allegedly violated an established ruling of the Supreme Court by lying under oath and receiving nomination forms from two political parties.

The APC chieftain maintained that the victory recorded by the PDP in the Edo election was temporary.

He said: “Secondly, Obaseki lied under oath and received nomination forms from two political parties against the ruling of the Supreme Court. This is just a temporary celebration for him.”
