The Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Victor Giadom, has taken over as the party’s Acting National Chairman according to a previous court order empowering him to do so.
According to him, he has the backing of the members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
Addressing a news conference at the headquarters of the party in Abuja, on Monday, Giadom cancelled the screening decision carried out at the Edo state Gubernatorial primary.
He called on all aspirants to report for a fresh screening between today (Wednesday) and tomorrow (Thursday).
According to him, it is against the law of natural justice for the suspended chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole to have presided over the screening exercise in the Edo Governorship primary when he is an interested party.
