Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has said the decision of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to disqualify his Edo state counterpart, Godwin Obaseki, from seeking reelection on its platform was the right one.
Ganduje stated this at a press briefing which held at the Government House Kano on Monday, June 15.
The governor also expressed optimism that the ruling party would win Edo polls without the incumbent’s efforts.
He said the APC was guided by the party constitution, electoral laws and the constitution of Nigeria before arriving at the decision.
He said crisis in democratic settings is normal as no political party is free from it, but noted that despite its challenges, the APC will win the forthcoming Edo election “because of high degree of mobilisation.”
Ganduje also said the party is conscious of legal issues in order to avoid the repetition of what happened in Bayelsa state recently where the party lost its seat to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) due to discrepancies in the name of the APC deputy governorship candidate.
