Obaseki Runs To Tinubu Ahead Of Edo Governorship Primaries –

Ahead of governorship primaries of the All Progressives
Congress, the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has
sought audience with the National Leader of the party,
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The primaries is scheduled to hold next month.
Sources said Obaseki made the move to see Tinubu after
the National Working Committee of the party announced the
adoption of direct primaries and waiver for a new entrant
into the party and candidate of the Peoples Democratic
Party in the last election in the state, Pastor Osagie Ize-
Iyamu.
Both steps were believed to have been taken in order to put
Obaseki at a disadvantage following his face-off with the
National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, which
had remained unresolvable.
Oshiomhole, a former Governor of Edo State, is believed to
be backing the candidacy of Ize-Iyamu for the governorship
poll.
Though it could not be ascertained when Obaseki would
visit Tinubu, it was learnt that the meeting will likely take
place in the home of the former Governor of Lagos State in
his Ikoyi home in Lagos.
