Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has alleged that the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki was disqualified from the governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress by someone who does not have a certificate.
Recall that Governor Obaseki was disqualified by the screening committee set up by APC over certificate issue.
Meanwhile, two other governorship aspirants, Matthew Aigbuhuenze Iduoriyekemwen and Chris Ogiemwonyi were also disqualified.
Governor Wike while reacting to the development on his Twitter account, described Obaseki’s disqualification as an “irony”.
This is coming after pictures of Governor Obaseki in a meeting with Governor Wike was spotted on Sunday.
Wike in his reaction said, “Obaseki was disqualified by someone who doesn’t have a certificate, what an irony!”
There are speculations that the Edo State Governor might defect to the Peoples Democratic Party in bid to contest under the party.
