The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, met with President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Speaking with State House correspondents after the meeting, Obaseki said he came to visit the President to thank him for the role he played in the successful conduct of the Edo governorship election.
He also dismissed the rumors that he was about to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He declared that it would be “immoral” for him to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Recall, Obaseki won re-election in the last Saturday’s governorship election, which he contested under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He defeated APC’s Osagie Ize-Iyamu with a margin of 84,336 votes.
Obaseki had dumped the APC for the PDP, when the ruling party disqualified him from participating in its primary election.
There have since been concerns that having won the election on the platform of the PDP, he might return to the APC.
