I can’t leave those who gave me umbrella in my storm – Obaseki reacts to defection rumour

Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki has said he can’t leave those who gave him umbrella during his storm.

The Governor gave the assurance when speaking to State House Correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Governor, who was responding to a comment about his likely return to the All Progressives Congress (APC), explained that he did not leave the ruling party on his own volition but was forced out.

He said he would not have returned as Governor if not for the PDP.

Dispelling the rumour of his likely exit from the PDP to return to the APC, the Governor said: “I think I’ve shown that I’m a politician with integrity and I have made it very clear that I didn’t leave the other party on my own, I was pushed out of the party, and someone else gave me cover, gave me an opportunity.

“It will not be the right thing to do to now leave who helped you, who gave you the umbrella in your storm, and then go back to the person who pushed you out.”
