Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state insist he won’t be fairly treated by the Prof Jonathan Ayuba led credentials screening committee ahead of the party’s governorship primaries billed to hold 22nd of this month.
Obaseki who was visibly angry after the screening excercise told newsmen last night in Abuja that he will not get justice under the current process with Comrade Adams Oshiomhole at the helm of the party.
There is no love lost between Obaseki and Oshiomhole over salient issues relating to party politics, loyalty and the governance of Edo state.
Other aspirants who had earlier in the day went through the screening exercise include: Hon. Osaro Obaze, Engr. Chris Ogiemwonyi, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu and Dr Pius Odubu.
Obaseki said: “The last time I came here, I asked that Oshiomhole recuse himself from the process in the interest of peace and justice. But as a party man, I have had to go through the screening like everybody else. Since he is the judge and the jury in this matter, I will just wait for the outcome of the screening.
“I have given them all the information they need; the controversial certificate from the University of Ibadan has been tendered.
“Like I said, as a party man I have gone through the screening process but I do not believe that I will get justice because Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is an interested party in the Edo process.
“One of the questions that was asked was that why did I issue a gazette that will prevent the party from performing direct elections in Edo.
“That did I not see it as an anti party activity? I just felt that if we put politics above the the lives of the people of Edo State, the we may be missing the point.”
