*NO APC GUBERNATORIAL PRIMARY COMMITTEE HAS BEEN INAUGURATED FOR EDO STATE AND NO PRIMARIES PLANNED FOR MONDAY, JUNE 22, 2020*
Reports reaching me is that some persons have perfected plans to conduct direct gubernatorial primaries for our great party in Edo State next week under the purported chairmanship of His Excellency Governor Hope Uzodinma on Monday, June 22, 2020.
Kindly note that as the Acting Chairman of our party, I did not authorize such a committee, neither have I inaugurated one. The earlier announced date for the primaries that is June 22, 2020, has been postponed. You are therefore advised not to give any support to any such committee or to monitor any such primaries. A new date for the primaries would be communicated to you soonest. We regret the inconvenience this might cause your commission.
A copy of this letter is being sent to the relevant law enforcement agencies and the Chairman of Edo State APC, Mr. Anselm Ojezua for their information and necessary actions.
