The Edo State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Anslem Ojezua, has stated that he will not be leaving the party.
Naija News reports that Governor Godwin Obaseki had left the party on Tuesday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari and his Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari.
Obaseki’s Deputy, Philip Shaibu has also announced during a news conference that he will be leaving the party alongside his boss.
Reacting to the resignation of Obaseki from the APC, Ojezua told NAN that he would not move with Obaseki as he was elected as chairman of APC with a four-year mandate, which would expire in 2022.
He said, “I won’t move. As you can see, I still have my mandate as the elected party chairman of APC in Edo which expires by 2020, and I intend to complete that mandate.”
Ojezua, however, lamented the departure of Godwin Obaseki, stressing that the APC has lost an asset.
