Charles revealed this when APC ward Chairmen from the 18 local government areas paid him a visit in Benin.
According to him, the constitution of the party is clear on the person with the power to decide the method for primaries.
He added that the National Chairman of APC, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, has deliberately failed to end his problems with Governor Godwin Obaseki for reasons best known to him.
His words, “Several meetings have been called by prominent leaders and members of the party but the national Chairman refused to show up.
“The most recent and the last was the one called by Alhaji Aliko Dangote and some governors. He did not also come for the resolution of the crisis,”
“Nobody contested with former governor Lucky Igbinedion and Adams Oshiomhole, so why would people contest against a performing governor Godwin Obaseki?”
