Godwin Obaseki has stated that he will not return to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Recall that the Edo Governor, Obaseki defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after he was disqualified from contesting in the governorship primary election for Edo state by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Godwin Obaseki contested the PDP primaries and later emerged as the party flagbearer and eventually win the election on the platform of the PDP.

He polled 307,955 votes to defeat Osagie Ize-Iyamu, candidate of the APC, who secured 223,619 votes.

Addressing newsmen after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Rock on Friday, the governor said leaving the PDP for the APC goes “against Buhari’s gospel of integrity”.

Obaseki said he should be dealt with if he attempts to become a “godfather” after his time in office.

According to him, godfatherism does not have a place in Edo.

The governor praised the president for his stance in the election despite being the leader of the country’s ruling party.
