Obaseki Reveals Threat In Edo State Hours After Oshiomhole Removal As APC’s National Chairman

The governor of the Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, has stated that he has yet to join any party.

In an early Wednesday tweet, he said his attention was on fighting the spread of COVID-19, which is threatening the healthcare of the state.

There are 620 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state of Edo as on Wednesday morning.

Obaseki wrote: “To seek re-election I have not yet switched to a new platform.

“My priority now is to monitor the spread of the coronavirus pandemic (# COVID19), which ravages our country and threatens our health-care system. Remain safe.

The governor dumped the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Tuesday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff, Ibrahim Gambari.

However, Obaseki made it clear that he would be seeking his second term offer on another forum.

Shortly after he left the APC, a Court of Appeal upheld a high court judgment suspending Adams Oshiomhole as the party’s National Chairman.
