Godwin Obaseki, the embattled Governor of Edo State, insisted on Wednesday that he was yet to moved to another party to pursue his second term ambition.
The governor, who made this known via his Twitter handle, said his priority at the moment is to curb the spread of the life-threatening coronavirus disease.
The announcement is coming on the heels of the Abuja Appeal Court that upheld the removal of his erstwhile godfather and political mentor, Adams Oshiomhole as APC national chairman on Tuesday.
Obaseki wrote, “I have not moved to a new platform yet to seek re-election. My focus now is to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, which is ravaging our country and threatening our healthcare system. Stay safe.”
He announced the decision to dump the All Progressives Congress following his disqualification from the June 22 governorship primary in Edo state during a chat with State House correspondents after a meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday.
The governor said he would pursue his ambition for the second term in office on another platform
“I have officially resigned my membership of the All Progressives Congress after meeting with the CoS to President Buhari, Ibrahim Gambari. We shall continue the battle to protect the interest of Edo people and sustain good governance in the state,” he tweeted after the meeting.
