Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has formally resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor announced this on Tuesday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
He made the announcement four days after he was screened out and declared unfit to participate in the APC primary election ahead of the September 19 governorship poll in Edo State.
On Friday last week, the Screening Committee led by Professor Jonathan Ayuba submitted its report to the party’s leadership after it screened Governor Obaseki who is seeking re-election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, and four other aspirants.
The other aspirants include Dr Pius Odubu, Chris Ogiemwonyi, Osaro Obazee, and Matthew Iduoriyekemwen.
The Governor mentioned that he would declare his next move after consulting with Mr President and his supporters.
Recall that he was seen meeting PDP Governors of Akwa Ibom and Rivers State earlier.
There are speculations that Governor Obaseki is likely to decamp to the PDP, but that is what it is, speculations.
