Edo Election: APC Drops Uzodinma, Appoints Otu Bassey Election Committee Chairman 

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has removed Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State as the chairman of the Edo State Governorship election primary after Saturday’s botched election.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the party announced Governor Bassey Otu of Cross River State as the new chairman following a meeting at the APC National Secretariat on Wednesday.

Mr Otu will be leading a seven-member committee comprising Shettima Shehu, Titilayo Laoye-Tomori, Nentanwe Goshwe, Umar Hassan, Lawan Garba, and Rabiu Suleiman as the Secretary.

The Uzodinma-led committee conducted a primary election on Saturday; however, the exercise was marred by violence and produced multiple candidates (winners) leading to the NWC declaring the election inconclusive and scheduled Thursday for the conclusion of the exercise.

The NWC however, retained the primary election appeal committee, with C.C Udenwa as the chairperson.

Other members include Muhammad Sarina, Udogu Chijoke, Muhammad Ali, and Yunusa Mohammed, who will serve as Secretary.
