Governor Obaseki resigns fom APC .

Governor Godwin Obaseki has finally dumped the All Progressive Congress in a final effort towards cementing his interest in governing Edo state for another four year term.
 The governor tendered his resignation from the party after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, June 16, at the State House, Abuja.
This decision came amid a frosty relationship and unresolvable differences between him and the national chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole. The political feud between the governor and Oshiomhole climaxed on Friday, June 12, as Obaseki was disqualified from the APC governorship ticket race. Among top reasons, the governor was shown the exit door by Jonathan Ayuba-led screening committee over an alleged defective certificate in what looked like a final effort to shatter his re-election bid. 
Oshiomhole later said the governor was disqualified because the APC is not a party of "big men" where rules can be remodelled to favour the interest of powerful individuals. Governor Obaseki may soon announce his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) having been meeting with the top hierarchies of the party including Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state. Edo state guber election is scheduled for September 2020.
