Gov Obaseki, Deputy Gov Shaibu resigns from APC
Governor Obaseki after his illegal disqualification from the APC primary election to nominate the party’s candidate for the September 19 governorship in Edo State, declared that he would make his decision known after consultation with President Buhari, which he did on Tuesday.
Chairman of the APC Screening Committee, Professor Jonathan Ayuba, last Friday, in the committee’s report to the APC National Working Committee (NWC) affirmed the disqualification of Governor Obaseki in the screening participated by five other aspirants who include Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the anointed candidate of Oshiomhole, Dr. Pius Odubu, Chris Ogiemwonyi, Osaro Obazee, and Matthew Iduoriyekemwen.
Governor had last weekend paid courtesy visits to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State. The visits confirmed the speculations of Obaseki defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The two governors have similar history of dealing with godfathers and surviving their rigging machines.
Meanwhile, Obaseki’s formal defection to PDP is widely awaited.
