On Friday the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed the defection of Godwin Obaseki, thr embattled Edo Governor to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as insignificant.
Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, told newsmen that Obaseki’s move to the PDP was never a surprise.
“It has not come to us as a surprise. We knew he had defected long ago because he resigned his membership of the party which we have accepted.
“So you can’t defect twice. So if he is defecting again, we don’t know whether what he has just done now is news any longer,” Issa-Onilu reacted.
Obaseki resigned from the APC after it’s screening committee disqualified him from the June 22 governorship primary.
The NWC last Saturday affirmed his disqualification by the screening and appeal committees.
