Edo State governor Obaseki dumps APC after meeting Buhari

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday.

Obaseki announced his resignation after meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

This is coming after the governor was disqualified by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) from recontesting in the governorship election.

Days before his disqualification, there was confusion about the genuineness of Obaseki’s university certificate, until the University of Ibadan came out to confirm that he studied classics in the school and graduated in 1979 with a Second Class Honours, Lower Division.

He is reportedly expected to announce his move to the Peoples Democratic Party any moment from now.
