I'll Meet Buhari Before Announcing My Next Move - Obaseki


Embattled Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki on Sunday said he will meet President Muhammadu Buhari before announcing his “next move”.⁣

A seven-member screening committee constituted by the ruling All Progressives Congress disqualified Obaseki from contesting in the party’s primaries billed to hold on June 22.⁣

He was disqualified on Friday over alleged discrepancies in his personal and academic records. His main challenger, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, was cleared.⁣

Obaseki has said he will not appeal the panel’s decision.⁣

On Saturday, the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, said in Abuja that Obaseki had abused his powers as governor of Edo State.⁣

Political analysts and commentators had hinted that the governor might join the opposition People’s Democratic Party to avail him a chance to contest for a second term as the state governor.⁣
