Obaseki, Shaibu pay ‘thank you’ visit to Buhari, speak on APC return

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has said that it will be immoral for him to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor made this known while speaking with State House correspondents at the end of his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari today.

Governor Obaseki, who was accompanied by his Deputy, Philip Shuaibu, and their spouses on Friday met with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja to thank him after winning the state governorship election.

Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu of Buhari’s 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 immoral 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.
