A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted Governor Godwin Obaseki’s visit to Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, south-south Nigeria.

Naija News had reported that the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC had on Saturday affirmed the disqualification of Godwin Obaseki the Edo state governor and two others who had earlier disqualified by the screening panel.

The three aspirants disqualified by the APC were Governor Godwin Obaseki, Chris Ogiemwonyi and Messrs Matthew Aigbuhuenze Iduoriyekemwen.

Naija News understands that several reports on Friday evening alleged that that Governor Obaseki has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) after he was disqualified by the screening committee and had since joined the opposition PDP, with the hope of flying the party’s flag for the Edo 2020 election.

Although Obaseki is yet to issue a statement regarding his alleged defection to the PDP and the plan to run for a second term in office on the platform of the main opposition party in the state, the Edo governor, however, visited Wike, a PDP governor on Sunday in Port Harcourt, thereby fueling rumours of his move to the opposition party.

Despite the fact that details of the meeting are yet unknown, as it was held behind closed doors, it seems like the beginning of the political rebranding regarding the hope of Obaseki ahead of the Edo Guber.

Moments after the meeting, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to react to the PDP and APC governor meeting.
