The National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole has said he will not be dragged into the arena, following mixed reactions that are trailing the disqualification of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Obaseki who failed to pass the screening of the All Progressives Congress has been lurked in a fierce battle with his predecessor who now chairs the party.
Speaking on Channels Television Friday night, Oshiomhole who was sporting a beard said that the assumption that Obaseki who was screened four years ago did not to need to face another screening was preposterous.
He said there was no provision in the party constitution debarring him or any previous office holder from attending another screening, arguing that such a provision could have been expressly defined.
Asked by Channels if the certicates used by the Edo State Governor four years ago when both men worked together were not the same documents presented to the APC Screening Committee, Oshiomhole who said anyone aggrieved could exploit mechanisms which allow for appeals noted that he would not be dragged into the arena.
He referred to the disqualification of a serving Senator who was nominated as the deputy governorship candidate of the APC in Bayelsa State over alleged inconsistencies in his qualification to buttress his claim.
Oshiomhole maintained that the party accepted his documents, but said the Supreme Court went ahead to set aside the party’s victory as a result.
