The political development in Edo state is getting more exciting and intense as Governor Godwin Obaseki reportedly met with the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, Aminu Tambuwal, and the PDP national chairman, Uche Secondus, on Wednesday, June 17.
The meeting was allegedly held at the Abuja residence of the Rivers state governor, Nyesome Wike, according to a report filed by Sahara Reporters.
The online news media said the two PDP leaders and some others in attendance gave the embattled Edo state governor an assurance of their support.
A source whose name was not mentioned was quoted to have said that the meeting was healed after a virtual meeting with PDP governors across the country.
Legit.ng gathers that the fates of Obaseki's deputy, Philip Shaibu, and others who may follow Obaseki to the PDP were also discussed.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Adams Oshiomhole had spoken on the defection of his successor Governor Obaseki from the APC.
The suspended national chairman of the ruling party described the development as “good riddance to bad rubbish".
He also vowed that the ruling party will go to court due to the discrepancies in Obaseki's certificate should PDP field in the governor as its flagbearer in the forthcoming election.
“Fortunate enough, it was the PDP that exposed him in 2016. PDP filed a case at the Federal High Court amplifying every forgery segments in his certificate. APC just managed to escape that because PDP filed out of time and the case was struck out.
“Now, the case has life, so, when they field him, we will be at the court to adopt what PDP filed before the court against him with additional evidence we now have against him. So, we can’t wait to have PDP field him as their candidate," Oshiomhole said.
The former governor has been at warpath with his successor over what many analysts term as fall of interest.
