APC Governors meet Tinubu over Edo crisis


Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and eight other Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have met with the party’s National Leader, Bola Tinubu.

The meeting was held at the State House, Marina, Lagos State and hosted by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Sunday.

This is part of efforts to resolve the ongoing impasse between Obaseki and the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, ahead of the Edo APC governorship primary scheduled to hold on June 22, 2020.

Some of the governors in attendance at the meeting were: Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi State), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Mohammed Abubakar (Jigawa), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), and Adeboyega Oyetola (Osun).

The Edo State chapter of the APC has been split since the disagreement arising from the absence of some lawmakers at the inauguration of the State House of Assembly, with a faction loyal to the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, and the other led by the incumbent governor, Godwin Obaseki.
