By Sodiq Adewale Chocomilo

Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) has persisted that the party will undergo direct primary to pick its Governorship candidate in Edo state on June 22.

This was disclosed by the National Chairman of the party after a meeting with members of the National Working Committee (NWC) and Governors elected under the platform of the party.

The Chairman disclosed this after the meeting, which lasted for over three hours at the National Secretariat in Abuja.

In a related story, WITHIN NIGERIA reported that an interim injunction restraining the Edo State Government and Governor Godwin Obaseki from arresting and prosecuting the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole over indictment in a white paper submitted to the state government has been granted by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

This was contained in a verdict passed on Monday by Justice Ahmed Mohammed.

The judge said the restraining order should subsist pending the determination of whether or not his court has jurisdiction to hear the suit filed by Oshiomhole.
