Also, Engr. Chris Ogiemwonyi was not cleared to contest over discrepancy in the names on his credentials.

Dr. Pius Odubu and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu were cleared to contest for the party’s ticket.

Earlier on Wednesday, Obaseki expressed fears that he might not get justice from the screening committee as Oshiomhole, “an interested party in Edo”, was involved in the process.

The former allies have been in a running battle for several months.
