On Tuesday, the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress declared the Edo State governorship primary election held on February 17 inconclusive.

Gatekeepers News reports that the announcement was made by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, after an emergency meeting was held with the NWC at the party secretariat in Abuja.

The primary election produced three winners, according to different sources. Governor Hope Uzodimma, the Chairman of Electoral Committee, announced Dennis Idahosa as winner, while returning officer Stanley Ugboaja declared Monday Okpebholo as winner. Ojo Babatunde, who claimed to be representing the returning officers in all the local governments, declared Anamero Dekeri as the winner of the election.

The confusion that ensued led to both Dekeri and Okpebholo writing to the appeal committee of the party to demand their certificates of return. Meanwhile, Professor Oserheimen Osunbor insisted on Tuesday that no election was held in the state, contrary to the results that were announced.

Morka disclosed that the election process has not been completed and will continue on Thursday.
