Now with the recent court ruling in favor of Chief Victor Giadom confirming him as the acting national chairman of APC.
The reason why the primary held in Edo state which Osagie Ize-Iyamu won may be cancelled is because Chief Victor Giadom had earier written to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declaring that he has not authorised the conduct of any Governorship primary in Edo state.
Also the President will be attending the National Executive Committee meeting called by the acting national chairman Chief Victor Giadom slated for Thursday at the Aso Villa. Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement said Buhari was acting on the position of the law. This is a huge support for Victor Giadom and at the end of today's meeting the primary held in Edo state may be cancelled based on the previous position of Chief Victor Giadom.
