The meeting held amidst reports that Obaseki may be defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after being disqualified to participate in the governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State.
However, as at the time of filing this report, the details of the meeting were sketchy.
Recall, the embattled Edo governor, on Sunday, also met with Nyesom Wike, Rivers state governor and a top chieftain of the PDP.
THE WITNESS reports that the Screening Appeal Committee of the All Progressives Congress had upheld the disqualification of Governor Godwin Obaseki from participating in its governorship primary in Edo state.
The appeal committee presented its report to the National Working Committee headed by Adams Oshiomhole on Saturday.
The committee led by Dr Abubakar Fari cited discrepancies in the dates on Obaseki’s University of Ibadan certificate.
Presenting the committee’s report, Fari said, “It is inconceivable that the same University will award two certificates with separate dates for the same graduate.
