APC Governors Demand Automatic Tickets For Obaseki, Akeredolu

Ahead of the gover­norship elections in Edo and Ondo states, governors elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Con­gress (APC) have demanded automatic tickets for Gover­nor Godwin Obaseki of Edo and his counterpart in Ondo, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredo­lu, Akelicious has gathered.

According to a credible source, the governors under the aegis of the Progressives Governors’ Forum (PGF) took the decision at a closed door meeting held at the Kebbi Governor’s Lodge on Wednes­day night which lasted till Thursday morning in Abuja.

Both Obaseki and Ak­eredolu are among the forces who want Adams Oshiom­hole ousted as the party’s na­tional chairman.

It would be recalled that the governors had a meeting earlier on Monday where they all agreed to postpone the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the par­ty where Oshiomhole’s fate would have been sealed.

While fielding questions from journalists after the first meeting, chairman of APC Governors’ Forum and Kebbi State governor, Atiku Bagudu, said President Mu­hammadu Buhari obliged the request of the governors on the postponement of the meeting.

He also said they informed Buhari that the governors had agreed to resolve all lingering crises bedeviling the party, a request he also obliged.

“Also, we seek Mr. Presi­dent’s support to postpone the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting that is sched­uled for tomorrow until such a time that the governors are ready to report back,” he said.
