Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, was at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Friday to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.

It was his first visit to the President since joining the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and defeating the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Sept.19 governorship election in Edo.

Accompanied by his deputy, Philip Shuaibu, Obaseki said they were at the Villa on a “thank you” visit to the President.

Speaking with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, Obaseki ruled out the possibility of returning to the APC, saying it would be immoral for him to do so.

He had dumped the APC for the PDP when the ruling party disqualified him from participating in its primary election.

Obaseki and Shuaibu were joined on the visit by their spouses and some lawmakers from the state.
