Edo Gov’ship ; Asiwaju guarantees "free & fair" primary as Obaseki & 7 other APC governors meet with Tinubu over Edo Political crisis


Some Governors in the ruling All Progressive Congress have met with Lagos state former governor/ APC Chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu over the party’s crisis between Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Godwin Obaseki in May 31, 2020.

In a bid to resolve the dispute between Oshiomhole and Governor Obaseki , a closed door meeting was held at the State House in Marina, Lagos was attended by the Chairman of APC governors’ Forum , Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state , Governors  Abubaka Bello  (Niger) , Adegboyega Oyetola (Osun) , Umar Ganduje (Kano), Mai Buni (Yobe), Godwin Obaseki (Edo), Simon Lalong (Plateau), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo) .

Tinubu also made it known to them that if there are more than two candidates running for a position, there must a primary election, saying the primary election is a way of knowing the popularity of the party's flagbearer, and Asiwaju further said he can only guarantee them that the Primary will be "free and fair"
 "It was reported that governor Obaseki told Bola Tinubu that if had offended him in any way, that he should forgive him. Tinubu then replied that he has not offended him"
It can be recall that Pastor Ize-Iyamu who is Adams Oshiomhole's pick was 4 years ago PDP's flagbearer , but came back to APC towards 2019 ending . 
Sources said the governors left Asiwaju's home sad after failing to convince the party's leader .
