THE All Progressives Congress – APC, is not aware of the departure of the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, top party official has said.
It may not be official yet, but 24/7INQUIRER.COM reports that Governor Obaseki renounced his membership of the ruling APC Tuesday, while chatting with journalists after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the ASO VILLA.
In a response to the Edo State Governor’s resignation from the party however, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said that the party’s record did not reflect that Obaseki was no longer a member.
“The party has no record of the reported defection of Governor Godwin Obaseki from the Progressive party,’’ Issa-Onilu said.
He added that: “We cannot comment at this moment on media reports suggesting the Edo governor or anyone else has left our great party.”
