The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has approved the governorship primary in Edo State which produced Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as its Edo governorship candidate.
GoldenNewsNg earlier reported that Buhari had earlier called for the dissolution of the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress ( APC).
Buhari’s recommendation was thereafter approved by the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) and a caretaker NWC recommended to take over in the interim.
Following the NEC approval, Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni has been appointed as the Chairman Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Committee of the party.
The NEC also ratified all decisions taken in respect of the Edo Guber Primaries which means Osagie Ize-Iyamu can now be recognized by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the authentic candidate of the APC in the September 19, 2020, governorship election in Edo State.
