Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has reportedly formally resigned from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to a Channels TV report, Obaseki made the announcement on Tuesday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The APC screening committee on the state governorship primary had, on Friday declared Obaseki and two other aspirants ineligible to contest the party’s July 22 governorship primary.
The panel explained that Obaseki was, among others, disqualified because of contradictions in his credentials.
The governor, who rejected the decision of the committee, said he would not appeal his disqualification because he did not believe he would get justice from the Oshiomhole-led NWC.
