Mr Ojezua also called for calm over the disqualification of Mr Obaseki from the party’s governorship primary.
He said, ”They didn’t say he will not contest the election but that he will not contest under the platform of the APC.
”By tomorrow, we will meet and be in a position to make a proper statement on what the future holds for the party in Edo State,”
Mr Ojezua’s statement is the closest indication yet that Mr Obaseki will defect to a new party to seek re-election. There have been rumours he would defect to the main opposition party, PDP.
