Edo Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has resigned his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Obaseki disclosed this to State House Correspondents on Tuesday on his way out of the Presidential Villa.
He also debunked allegations that his credentials were not original.
Mr Obaseki announced this after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja, Channels Television reports.
PREMIUM TIMES earlier reported how Mr Obaseki said he would take a decision on his membership of the APC after meeting with the Nigerian leader.
Mr Obaseki was last week disqualified by the APC from participating in the party’s governorship primary slated for June 22.
Although he wants to contest for a second term in office, the APC denied the governor the chance to do that, alleging inaccuracies in his school certificates.
