The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Edo State on Monday noted that he met with the President due to his relationship with President Buhari as that of a son to a father.
The Edo State Governor noted that he and the President discussed development issues affecting the people of Edo State part of which is the case management of Coronavirus.
“My relationship with President Muhammadu Buhari is that of a father and son. I was on a zoom meeting with the President, during which we engaged on development issues affecting Edo people and Nigerians. We also discussed measures to manage the spread of COVID-19,” he wrote on Facebook with some photos of the meeting.
Obaseki, however, did not disclose if he discussed with the President his second term ambition under the platform of PDP.
With few months to the September 19 governorship election in Edo State, a lot of things has changed in the state with Obaseki dumping the All Progressives Congress following his disqualification from the party’s primary, while Osagie Ize-Iyamu dumped the PDP to join APC to achieve his political ambition.
