Obaseki meets Buhari, vows will never rejoin APC that pushed him out
The governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, on Wednesday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The governor who was elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after his face-off with the then-APC national chairman and former governor of Edo, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole vowed never to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to Obaseki while addressing journalists after his meeting with Buhari, it was not his will to leave the political platform that sponsored his election in his first tenure, but he was pushed out of the party when he wanted to run for the second tenure.
“Well, I think I have shown that I’m a politician with integrity and I have made it very clear that I didn’t leave the other party on my own.
“I was pushed out of the party, and someone else gave me cover, gave me an opportunity, it will not be the right thing to do. To now leave who helped you, who gave you the umbrella in your storm, and then go back to the person who pushed you out.”
