Oshiomhole later said the governor was disqualified because the APC is not a party of “big men” where rules can be remodelled to favour the interest of powerful individuals.
Speaking with Journalist, Obaseki said he was gang forced out of the ruling party as APC did not deem him fit for reelection four years after he contested and won. “They said I was not qualified after four years. I qualified for the first time, but this time I was not. That was when I see that for APC, they are doing things anyhow. “The leadership can just come and disobey the party constitution and court order. They are just doing as they like because they are in government. “Since all of them said I was not qualified, I left and PDP which saw that I am qualified gave me the opportunity to join them,” Obaseki said. it was reported that Governor Godwin Obaseki and his rival Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu have finally lifted the lids on their relationship with the former governor of the state, Adams Oshiomhole.
