Aside from meeting Buhari, Obaseki said his decision will also be informed by consultations with his supporters.

“I appreciate the sustained show of solidarity, support and goodwill from Edo people and Nigerians in the face of injustice by the All Progressives Congress (APC) screening committee.
“I will be making my next move known after I complete consultations with my supporters and meet with President Muhammadu Buhari,” Obaseki tweeted.

The meeting may be part of Obaseki weighing his options regarding the forthcoming governorship election in Edo state.
