The All Progressives Congress (APC) has constituted a seven-member screening committee for the governorship election primaries in Edo State.

The committee will be chaired by former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Chibudom Nwuche.

The disclosure was made by the APC via a statement released on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, according to Daily Post.

It reads:

“Today, we have assembled very eminent personalities of our great party to undertake this important assignment for us."

“The APC governorship primaries for Edo state will be on 18th June, 2016 in Benin while the screening will commence this afternoon (Wednesday) in Abuja. We don’t want any interference with your job that is why we are not conducting the screening exercise in Benin. It has always been our tradition to conduct the screening outside the state."

“You have a very big task. If you bring an aspirant that is not qualified and he or she runs the election on our ticket and wins, and the other people go to court, our party will lose to a party that came second, so your duty is very critical."

Twelve aspirants have bought the APC governorship forms and they are: Blessing Agbomhere; Charles Airhiavbere, and Fredrick Amadasun, Emmanuel Arigbe-Osula, Austin Emuan, Peter Esele, Kenneth Imansuangbon, Godwin Obaseki, Pius Odubu, Agbarha Ojehor, Christopher Ogiemwonyi and Oserheimen Osunbor.
