The All progressives Congress (APC) says Obaseki’s defection to the opposition People Democratic Party (PDP), is not coming as a surprise to them.
But the University of Ibadan which Obaseki claimed to have attended came out to authenticate his certificate.
In any case, the announcement by UI was not enough to save him from being disqualified by his party, APC.
Apparently, Obaseki who is displeased with the development resigned from the party and subsequently, joined PDP.
Spokesperson of the APC, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu in his reaction while speaking with journalists in Abuja said the party is not surprised.
“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,” Issa-Onilu said.
“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,” he added.
