Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, on Friday met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governor however told State House correspondents at the end of the meeting that it would be immoral for him to return to All Progressives Congress.

Obaseki of Peoples Democratic Party beat Mr Osagie Ize-Iyamu of Buhari’s All Progressives Congress and others to win the last Saturday’s governorship election in his state.

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

There have been concerns that having won the election on the platform of PDP, he might return to APC.

But the governor who met with the President alongside his deputy, Mr Philip Shuaibu, said it would be immoral to do so.

Obaseki and Shuaibu were joined on what they called  “thank you visit” to Buhari by their spouses and some lawmakers from the state.
