Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, says it will be immoral for him to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC) after he had dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following irreconcilable differences.
Obaseki disclosed this when he met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the federal capital territory.
The governor and his deputy, Philip Shuaibu were joined on the visiting train to Buhari by their spouses and some lawmakers from the state.
The trip to Aso Rock was described as ‘thank you’.
Obaseki, at the end of the meeting with Buhari, told State House correspondents that it would be immoral for him to return to his former party – APC.
PDP’s Obaseki had defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu of Buhari’s APC and others to win the last Saturday’s historic governorship election in Edo State.
The governor dumped the APC for the PDP following his disqualification by the ruling party from participating in its primary election.
There have been speculations that Governor Obaseki might return to APC after his victory on the platform of PDP
But the governor who met with Buhari alongside his deputy, Shuaibu, said it would be immoral for him to dump PDP for APC after he had won his reelection with the party’s identity.
