APC aspirant disqualified for criminal conviction

Chief Godwin Ezeemo
The Governorship election Screening Panel of the National Executive Committee (NEC) in All Progressive Congress (APC) yesterday disqualified Chief Godwin Ezeemo who picked the nomination form of the party on Tuesday for criminal conviction in a London Crown Court in 2011, for exporting toxic waste from UK into Nigeria. Both The 1999 constitution, as amended

and the electoral Act 201 rule out ex-convicts from holding public offices.

The sentence was also confirmed by a British Supreme Appeal Court and he was sentenced to six months imprisonment.
