I’m not returning to APC – Obaseki

The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has said that he was not returning to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He made the declaration after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa on Friday.

He said that such a move would negatively affect his credibility and popularity.

His words: “Leaving the PDP for the APC goes against Buhari’s gospel of integrity.

“I will not attempt to replace former APC national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, as the new godfather of Edo politics.

“I should be dealt with accordingly.”

Obaseki however explained that he was at the State House on an appreciation visit to the President, following last weekend’s governorship election, which he won and re-elected as governor of Edo State.

The governor dumped the APC for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following his disqualification from the party’s governorship primaries.
