Akeredolu Disqualified By Screening Committee, Announcement Expected Soon by ganisucks(f): 9:13pm On Jul 12, 2020
Although, the alleged disqualification of the governor was yet to be made public, it was reliably gathered that some bigwigs in the party, who got wind of the situation, had intervened to save Governor Akeredolu from the embarrassment of not participating in the exercise.

There is currently anxiety in government circle in Ondo State following the alleged disqualification of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu from the party's governorship primary election by the All Progressives Congress screening committee.

Although, the alleged disqualification of the governor was yet to be made public, it was reliably gathered that some bigwigs in the party, who got wind of the situation, had intervened to save Governor Akeredolu from the embarrassment of not participating in the exercise.

It was learnt that Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi, was leading moves to get the disqualification overturned.

Reports had earlier emerged on Saturday that Segun Abraham was the aspirant disqualified by the screening committee but his media office quickly debunked the claim.

The APC has fixed its governorship primary election for July 20, while the Independent National Electoral Commission scheduled the governorship election for October 10, 2020.

The aspirants, who participated in the Ondo APC screening exercise include Joseph Olusola Iji, Odimayo Okunjimi, Olayide Owolabi Adelami, Isaacs Duerimini Kekemeke, Olusola Oke Alex, lfeoluwa Olusola Oyedele and Olajumoke Olubusola Anifowoshe.

Others are Awodeyi Akinsehinwa Akinola Colinus, Olubukola Adetula, Dr Abraham Olusegun, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and Dr Nathaniel Adojutelegan.

But there are fears already over the fate of the state governor in participating in the APC governorship primary election as the leadership of the party was yet to release the result of the screening committee.

SaharaReporters gathered that the party decided to hold on to the result of the screening since it didn't favour the governor.

A source at the party's headquarters in Abuja told our correspondent that the screening committee discovered how Akeredolu had been involved in anti-party activities, leading to the low votes recorded by President Muhammadu Buhari in Ondo during the 2019 election.

The source explained that the committee also had some weghty petitions against the governor, forcing them to put the result of the screening on hold.

"The main problem we are battling with in Ondo now is that we have discovered that people have turned against the governor and we are scared of fielding him as our candidate for the October election," the source said.

He revealed that the national leadership of the party had also realised that there was no method of primary adopted that would work in the favour of the governor.

According to him, the 11 other aspirants screened had written to the committee to reject any indirect mode of primary election.

The source added that none of the aspirants was ready to step down and support the second term ambition of the governor after they were all interviewed in Abuja.

"What we heared was that five out of the 11 aspirants are for the governor and he gives them money to buy forms but we later found out that they were all lies because we interviewed all of them and they disclaimed it.

"But we know some of them would still step down and that is if we pick a candidate that would be accepted to them but not Akeredolu," the source added.

Reacting to the issue, the governor's Senior Special Assistant on Media, Oyewamide Ojo, said that the news of his disqualification was a ploy to distract his supporters.

He said, "This is yet another distraction unleashed with the aim of deceiving the unsuspecting public and diverting attention from the self-imposed pains on the part of those behind the story. It is clearly, coming from those who have chosen the perfidous political path.
"Governor Akeredolu is not just participating at the party primary, he shall be re-elected by the grace of God come October 10, 2020."

Is APC serious or there is an internal plan to destroy the party.

On what grounds are the disqualifying him? Former president NBA no serve or he no get degree? With APC nothing surprises me again.

UI talk say Obaseki certificate is genuine but APC talk e fake. NYSC they talk say e no do. When he do.

They wont make the mistake to disqualify him.

Haaaa


Akeredolu is in a deep mess , his deputy and cabinet members don't like, the state assembly he couldn't get more than 14 lawmakers to back him, the Aso Rock Cabal that helped him in 2016 won't help him again since he was openly lambasting Fulani

From all indications,thiefnuubu and Sowore have reconciled,so Sowore is back to his political journalism.
Expect more of these types of fake news against all those SW governors thiefnuubu did not handpick including Fayemi.
