Edo Governor, Godwin Obaseki has dismissed the rumour that he is planning to return to the All progressives Congress (APC).
Obaseki was disqualified by the party before the primary that produced Ize-Iyamu, who defected to the ruling party from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the platform through which Obaseki won his re-election after defecting from the APC.
Because of his planned defection, the PDP had to extend the deadline for the purchase of interest form, which led to some legal tussles with candidates, which were later resolved within the party.
Speaking with the State House correspondents after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Rock, the governor said PDP gave him a cover when the PAC sent him out of the party.
“I will not leave a PDP that gave me a cover when I was pushed out of the APC.
“I didn’t leave in my own will, I was pushed out. So, I won’t return to a party that pushed me and leave the one who gave me cover during the time of rain.”
Speaking further on the recent herdsmen menace, Obaseki noted that his state is yet to ban open grazing, noting that the other alternative is an expensive one.
