Edo election: What I discussed with Buhari - Obaseki speaks

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, says he is upbeat about the forthcoming governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said this to State House correspondents after presenting his Expression of Interest Forms to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governor also spoke about the election, his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, and his rival, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.

The governor said he visited the president to formally inform him and solicit his support.

Obaseki disclosed that Buhari was welcoming when he showed him his forms.

“He looked through it and teased me that he will not have to go through this again, he wished me good luck and assured me his support.”

Obaseki stated that the APC crisis in the state “is not from Edo but from outside. The person I am contesting against (Ize-Iyamu) is not in Edo, he is in Abuja.

On Oshiomhole, APC National Chairman, Obaseki said the former governor took his current position because he was not properly guided.
