Governor of Edo state has pledged never to to ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) after he defected to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in 2020 while seeking re-election.

He was forced to join Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the nick of time.

Obaseki, who spoke in Abuja on Monday in backdrop of the exodus of governors elected on the platform of the PDP to the APC, insisted that he would not join the defection train.

Three serving PDP governors were among high profile factors to APC in recent time. They include Dave Umahi (Ebonyi); Ben Ayade (Cross River); and Bello Matawalle (Zamfara).

But Obaseki described rumours getting rounds that he intended to to APC as laughable, adding that he is committed to serving the people under the “stable, people-oriented and democratic structure” of the PDP.

Edo Governor, who is the Chairman of PDP’s e-registration exercise, declared his commitment and strong belief in the PDP as a party that holds the solution to issues of governance-deficit facing the country at the moment.
