Former Information Minister Tony Momoh has warned Congress of all progressives (APC) that the election of the governor of Edo state will not be a tea party.
Momoh said this as he reacts to the disqualification of state governor Edo Godwin Obaseki from the APC state primary election.
The head of the APC in an interview with the Nigerian News Agency (NAN) on Friday said, with what’s going on, “any party can win with the governor’s election.”
He warned that development could affect the party’s chances at the polls.
Momoh said the PCA must handle the crisis well, “otherwise they shouldn’t expect the election to run like a tea party.”
The former minister said he won’t say much “because it’s still a party issue. Obaseki is the interim governor and if his disqualification continues, it could affect the party.”
Momoh said the governor could appeal to the party’s appeal committee to contest his disqualification.
He also suggested that Obaseki could go to court to dispute the outcome.
