It will be wrong for me to Return to APC- Obaseki

The re-elected governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Friday met with the President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

After the meeting with the President, Obaseki, however told State House correspondents that it would be wrong for him to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Recall that Obaseki , who contested on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform defated Osagie Ize-Iyamu of All Progressives Congress (APC) and others to win the last Saturday’s governorship election in his state.

He had dumped the APC for the PDP when the ruling party disqualified him from participating in its primary election.

There have been concerns that having won the election on the platform of the PDP, he might return to the APC.

But the governor who met with the President alongside his deputy, Philip Shuaibu, said it would be wrong of him to do so.

Obaseki and Shuaibu were joined on what they called the “thank you visit” to Buhari by their spouses and some lawmakers from the state.
