Newly re-elected governor of Edo State Godwin Obaseki, on Friday met with the President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Although details of the visit were not disclosed to the press, sources however told Fedredsnews that the governor officially briefed Buhari on the outcome of the election and to thank him for his impartiality before and during the election.
He also assured him of his commitment to accommodate and stretch a hand of fellowship to his opponents.
He was accompanied on the visit by his deputy, Philip Shuaibu and their spouses. Some state lawmakers were also on his entourage.
When asked to comment on the plea by his opponent, Ize-Iyamu to return to the APC, the governor said it would be immoral for him to return to the All Progressives Congress.
Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party beat 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 the APC for the 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 the PDP, he might return to the APC.
