The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has stated he is yet to join any political party, following his official resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

NVS had earlier reported how Obaseki announced resignation of his membership of the ruling party on Tuesday shortly after visiting the Aso Rock where he met with the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Gambari.

He later revealed that he hopes to join another political party to push for his second term bid.

His resignation had fueled speculations in some quarters that he is on the verge of joining the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the major opposition party in the state.

But in a post on Wednesday, Obaseki said he has not joined any political party, noting his focus at the moment was how to combat spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the state.

“I have not moved to a new platform yet to seek re-election. My focus now is to control the spread of the coronavirus (#COVID19) pandemic, which is ravaging our country and threatening our healthcare system. Stay safe,” he wrote on Twitter.

His comment had hours after the APC announced former Governor of Oyo state, Ajibola Ajimobi as its acting National Chairman after the Appeal Court upheld the judgment of a High Court which suspended Adams Oshiomhole
