Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, has hinted on on why he is yet to join any political party after he resigned his membership from the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The Governor dumped his party after a meeting with Ibrahim Gambari, Chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday to pursue his re-election bid on another political 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, said 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.
TheNewspad had reported that Abiola Ajimobi, former governor of Oyo State, was named as acting APC national chairman.
But governors elected on the APC platform had said they would ensure internal democracy is at play in the selection of candidates for Edo governorship election scheduled for September 19.
Obaseki was disqualified from the APC primary election in Edo by a screening panel for alleged defective certificate.
There has been the speculation that he may join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after his meeting with some governors elected on the PDP platform at the weekend.
It is not clear if he is reconsidering his resignation from the APC following the suspension of Oshiomhole.
A three-man panel of the Court of Appeal has affirmed the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Justice Mohammed Lamido, the three-man panel who delivered the judgement on Tuesday, dismissed Oshiomhole’s appeal for lacking in merit.
The panel accordingly upheld the decision of an Abuja High Court which had in early March ordered the suspension of Oshiomhole as APC National Chairman.
