The Edo State governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has foreclosed the possibility of returning to the All Progressives Congress (APC) any time soon.

Obaseki, who gave the hint while speaking to State House Correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, noted that such a move would negatively affect his credibility.

Obaseki said 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 gubernatorial primaries.

Responding to questions from State House correspondents after meeting with President Buhari, he affirmed that leaving the PDP for the APC goes against Buhari’s gospel of integrity.

He also said he will not attempt to replace former APC national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, as the new godfather of Edo politics, saying that if he does, “I should be dealt with accordingly.”
