The All Progressives Congress (APC) has declared the governorship primary election in Edo State inconclusive. The decision was announced by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, after an emergency meeting with the National Working Committee (NWC) at the party secretariat in Abuja. The primary election, which took place on February 17, had produced three winners, causing confusion and disputes among the candidates.

Governor Hope Uzodimma, the Chairman of the Electoral Committee, had announced Dennis Idahosa as the winner, while the returning officer, Stanley Ugboaja, declared Monday Okpebholo as the winner.

Another individual, Ojo Babatunde, who claimed to represent the returning officers in all the local governments, declared Anamero Dekeri as the winner.

This conflicting outcome prompted Dekeri and Okpebholo to write to the appeal committee of the party, demanding their certificates of return.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, Morka stated that the election process has not been completed and will continue on Thursday, February 22.

He emphasized that the NWC resolved to fix this date for the completion of the APC Edo State primary election process. The reasons behind this decision were not immediately clear.

Earlier, the party’s National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, had congratulated Dennis Idahosa on his emergence as the party’s candidate.

However, with the declaration of the primary election as inconclusive, the final candidate for the APC in the Edo State governorship race is yet to be determined.
