Adams Oshiomhole, former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that the screening committee of the party relied on documents from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to disqualify Governor Godwin Obaseki when they took him to court in 2016.
Oshiomhole said on Thursday when he was speaking with a crowd of supporters, who welcomed him to Benin City, the Edo State capital.
According to Oshohnole, the PDP was struck out because the party filed out of time.

He claims the APC learned from what happened in Bayelsa State and decided to repeat the mistake in Edo State.
He said: “PDP took Obaseki to the court that he forged certificate.
“You know what happened to us in Bayelsa. So I need to assure you that the decision of the screening committee to disqualify the sitting governor was based on the evidence provided by PDP which they found to be correct and you do not repeat the same mistake twice.”
