After his disqualification from the APC governorship primaries, Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has visited Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
Governor Obaseki was disqualified by his party for submitting a school leaving certificate that was not genuine and invalid.
Political analysts said his visit is to cement his decamping to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
It would be recalled that the Prof. Jonathan Ayuba-led Screening Committee of the All Progressives Congress APC for the Edo state Governorship primary election disqualified him said in its verdict that:
“Mr Godwin Obaseki: Though, His Excellency, Godwin Obaseki in his nomination form claimed to have obtained a Higher School Leaving Certificate from an Institute of Continuing Education, Benin. It was observed however that no educational certificate such as HSC is known in Nigerian educational system. Even then, the same HSC was never presented in the course of the screening exercise. The aspirant admitted that he has never collected it.
“The attestation from the Institute of Continuing Education, Benin from where the alleged HSC which was indicated in the field of attendance as obtained is of no consequence, as it only attests that Obaseki was a student of the Institute. So what we had was like an attendance. It was just an attendance, it was not a result.
