‘I’ve not joined any party yet’ — Obaseki hours after Oshiomhole’s suspension
Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state, says he is yet to join any political party.
The governor announced the resignation of his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) after meeting with Ibrahim Gambari, chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday.
He said he would pursue his reelection bid on another platform.
But Shortly after the governor announced his quitting of the APC, the appeal court upheld the judgment of a high court suspending Adams Oshiomhole as the national chairman of the party.
Ajibola Ajimobi, former governor of Oyo state, was named as acting APC national chairman.
In a tweet on Wednesday, a few hours after Oshiomhole stepped down, Obaseki said he is yet to join any party and that his focus is to control the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
