Defection:Akeredolu Vows to Bring Back Obaseki to APC

The Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has vowed to bring his counterpart in Edo State, Godwin Obaseki back to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Akeredolu who disclosed this on Wednesday pledged to do all within his power to bring Obaseki back into the APC fold from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Akeredolu made the vow during his inauguration for a second term in office in Akure, the state capital.

Obaseki had defected from the APC to the PDP in the buildup to the Edo 2020 governorship election after he was denied the ruling party’s ticket in the primary election due to intra-party wranglings.

He was subsequently re-elected as Governor of Edo State after defeating the APC candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu, in the September 19, 2020 governorship poll.

During his speech, Akeredolu specially thanked Obaseki for making it down to Akure for his second term inauguration.
