Governor Obaseki Speaks on Defection after Meeting with Buhari 1

Godwin Obaseki, the governor of Edo state, has ruled out plans to abandon the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and return to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Edo state governor who secured his second term mandate on the PDP’s platform after failing to get the APC’s ticket said his integrity would not allow him to abandon the party which provided him cover when he was in distress.

The Nation reported that Governor Obaseki said this when addressing newsmen after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday, October 13.

The governor also said he did not leave the ruling party of his own volition but was forced out, adding that he would not have been re-elected if not for the PDP.

His words:

“I

think I’ve 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.”
